Elite Chicago Cubs prospect Eloy Jimenez was sent down to the minors recently as the team lowered their numbers to 43 players.

However, news worsened as Jimenez had been sore since last Tuesday after he threw a ball into the stands against the Milwaukee Brewers. Cubs management put him through some medical tests including an MRI and CT scan on his right shoulder on Saturday. The medical results are back from team doctors on Monday and Jimenez will reportedly be shut down for three weeks with a bone bruise in his throwing arm. It is decent news as there is no structural damage in the shoulder.

"All in all we feel it's pretty good news," general manager Jed Hoyer said to reporters on Monday.

Joe Maddon knows that his powerful bat will make him coveted for many years at the big league level.

"He's going to hit," Maddon said recently. "The velocity, ball off the bat, is incredible. He'll look awful on one pitch and then come back and hit a screaming line drive. He'll make quick adjustments. Again, really sophisticated or beyond his years at 20."
