Cubs News: Eloy Jimenez undergoes medical tests

by - Senior Editor -

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

Jimenez had been sore since Tuesday after he threw a ball into the stands against the Milwaukee Brewers. So, Cubs management has put him through some medical tests including an MRI and CT scan on his right shoulder according to multiple reports.

They have not gotten the medical results back as of Saturday at 5 pm CT but should know more on Sunday.

Update: Cubs will have an update on his test results on Monday after the team doctors take a look.

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."
