Actually, it is a nice deal. Jimenez is a 22-year-old five-tool prospect from the Dominican Republic who has dominated the minor leagues. He cut up time between Double-A and Triple-A in 2018 and hit .337, with 22 residence runs, 75 RBIs, a .384 on-base share and a .961 OPS. He was arguably the most effective hitter in minor league baseball.
Baseball America has ranked him because the 17th-best prospect in baseball in 2017, the fourth-best in 2018 and the third-best earlier than this season. His continues to leap up the ranks and can nearly actually be within the massive leagues this 12 months.
Locking him up for six years and $43 million and getting a pair of membership choices is good. The deal might max out at eight years and $77 million. It’s an amazing deal for the White Sox to get a younger star locked up long run. They’re clearly assured he can do massive issues within the majors and now have him on board for a below-market deal.
After lacking out of the big-name free brokers this offseason, Chicago wanted to do one thing optimistic. That is optimistic.
The Chicago Cubs must be kicking themselves. They shipped Jimenez throughout city to the White Sox as a part of the deal for Jose Quintana, who has not been nearly as good as marketed.
