MLB.com @scottmerkin

KANSAS CITY -- White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez, ranked as the club's No. 1 prospect and the No. 4 overall in baseball per MLB Pipeline, suffered a mild strain to his left pectoral while working out at the team's Camelback Ranch complex in Glendale, Ariz. The club announced the news following Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Royals.

Jimenez, 21, will be held out of baseball activities for about a week, and the organization expects him to ramp back up in extended spring games before re-joining Double-A Birmingham. Jimenez missed close to two weeks during Spring Training due to left knee tendinitis, but he hit a pinch-hit home run against the Cubs upon his return.
