Daily White Sox prospects update: Eloy Jimenez debuts at Birmingham

Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Double-A Birmingham

Eloy Jimenez made his much-anticipated debut after working his way back from an injury to his pectoral muscle. The White Sox top-rated prospect didn't get a hit, going 0-for-3 in Birmingham's 8-3 loss, but he did have a walk, an RBI and a run scored. Zack Collins had two walks in the game. Jordan Guerrero gave up six runs on nine hits in three innings of work.

Class A Winston-Salem

Blake Rutherford followed up a three-double day Wednesday with four hits Thursday. He also drove in four runs and scored a run. Micker Adolfo homered, with the quartet of Adolfo, Rutherford, Luis Alexander Basabe (who walked three times) and Gavin Sheets combining for eight RBIs in a 9-5 win.

Class A Kannapolis

Luis Gonzalez and Evan Skoug each had a hit and a run scored and Gonzalez added a walk in Kannapolis' 8-3 win.

Daily White Sox prospects update: Three-double day for Blake Rutherford

Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Class A Winston-Salem

Blake Rutherford banged out three doubles in Winston-Salem's 14-4 win, another offensive outburst for the mashin' Dash. Micker Adolfo also had three hits, including a double, and two RBIs. Gavin Sheets had a hit, Alex Call had two hits and two RBIs, and Joel Booker had a double. Dylan Cease pitched, allowing four runs in his five innings, but he also struck out seven batters. He's got a 3.45 ERA in three starts.

Triple-A Charlotte

Charlie Tilson had two hits, a double, an RBI and a run scored in a 9-2 win. Daniel Palka had a hit and a walk. Thyago Vieira gave up another run in his one inning of work, with his ERA at 11.37 in 6.1 innings.

Double-A Birmingham

In the final game before the arrival of Eloy Jimenez, Seby Zavala had two hits, a double and a walk in an 8-1 loss. Zack Collins was 0-for-4 and is hitting just .071 on the season.

Class A Kannapolis

Daily White Sox prospects update: Luis Alexander Basabe homered again and his slugging percentage is ridiculous

Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Class A Winston-Salem

Luis Alexander Basabe hit his second home run of the season Tuesday, upping his ridiculous slugging percentage to .627. For comparison purposes, only seven big leaguers have a higher slugging percentage so far this season. All in all, Basabe is slashing .353/.411/.627. Blake Rutherford also had a double and an RBI in Winston-Salem's 5-4 loss.

Triple-A Charlotte

Daniel Palka had two hits and an RBI in Charlotte's 5-3 win. Palka is batting .295 on the season. He could be an interesting name to remember in case the White Sox need a fill-in outfielder at the big league level now that Ryan Cordell is set to miss at least eight weeks of action.

Double-A Birmingham

Zack Collins walked three times in Birmingham's 4-3 loss. Seby Zavala had a hit and a walk.

Class A Kannapolis

Luis Gonzalez hit his second home run of 2018 in Kannapolis' 6-5 loss. Evan Skoug had a hit and a walk.
