Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jiménez underwent surgery on Tuesday.
Eloy JimÃ©nez underwent successful surgery this morning at Rush Oak Brook Surgery Center to repair a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee. The injury is similar to those sustained by Yasmani Grandal on 7/5/21 and Lance Lynn on 4/2/22.

Previously, the team said Jiménez is expected to be sidelined for approximately six to eight weeks and Tuesday the team confirmed that timeline.
Jiménez sustained the injury while running through first base on a groundout in Chicago's loss to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday. The 25-year-old landed awkwardly on the bag and then fell to the ground. He was down for several minutes before being carted off the field.
Through 11 games played this season, Jiménez is batting .222/.256/.333 with one home run and seven RBIs.
