You know things are going bad when, running across the bottom of the NL game on MLB, you see the White Sox have put a hurt on a team that has no pitching, you go to OnRoto to see what Eloy did, and you read:

04.22: White Sox placed OF Eloy Jimenez on the bereavement list. (Jimenez has flown home to the Dominican Republic following the death of his
grandmother and will miss Chicago's three-game series against the
Orioles. Nicky Delmonico is getting the call in a corresponding roster
move.)

They are feeding him soft stuff down and away and he's falling for it. Then, with the count 0-2, they throw heat right down main street, which he stares at. The usual rude welcome. If his nerves don't settle, he will -- ironically -- spend some more time in Triple-A.

He made the team in no small part due to signing a major league contract to eliminate the Super-2 issue.

Agree completely with SandCrab.

Suddenly the long term signings of guys blowing through their control years makes me wonder - are MLB execs just accepting that after 2021 the landscape is going to change, and they're not going to have the same kind of control for 6 years?

It may be by the 2021 season that owners have negotiated away a couple of those years ... in which for a player like Eloy the last two years might be a bargain for the ChiSox.

I love deals like this one, and the Snell and Lowe ones of the Rays.  Much more fair to young players than having to wait for FA, and much better for small and mid-market teams.  The team gets the reward for development, fans develop long-term following of guys,  no FA distraction talk,  total security from injury for the players, overall, a balanced give and take.

It's going to cost me ten bucks if he now makes the team on Opening Day, which would be great -- wonderful -- if I could keep him for eight years.

I'd settle for this year and next.

But we don't believe in long-term contracts in the American Dreams, probably because ours are so short, and I lose him after this year.

Some I kind of hoping the rumor coming out of Arizona is greatly exaggerated.

Hector Gomez of Deportivo Z 101 in the Dominican Republic reports that the White Sox are in agreement on an eight-year extension with top outfield prospect Eloy Jimenez.

ESPN's Jeff Passan is hearing something similar, though he adds that only the first six years of the deal will be guaranteed. There are club options for years seven and eight. The total guaranteed money will be $43 million, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Jimenez has yet to appear in a game at the major league level, but he ranks as one of the top prospects in the sport and locking him up with some cost certainty could very well encourage the White Sox to promote him to the major league roster more quickly than they would have otherwise. He could even possibly be their starting right fielder on Opening Day. Jimenez, 22, batted .337/.384/.577 with 22 home runs and 75 RBI over 108 games last year between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He also lit it up in the Dominican Winter League this past offseason.

0-for-3 yesterday to drop his batting average down to .143, making it much easier for the White Sox to ship him out at the end of spring training.

My interest in Eloy is chronicled in the archive. I had hoped he would help me last season, but at this point, given the rules in the ADL, it's better for me if he doesn't make the Opening Day roster.

Eloy Jimenez (OF) CHI-A - Dec. 15

Jimenez is day-to-day with a quad strain in the Dominican Winter League, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Jimenez was expected to be shut down soon for the holidays anyway, so the injury likely won't cost him too much time. It doesn't appear to be serious enough to threaten his availability at the start of spring training. The young outfielder had been on a tear in eight games for Gigantes in the Dominican Winter League, hitting 448/.500/.759.
