Chicago White Sox left fielder Eloy Jiménez exited with right hamstring soreness after trying to beat a throw to first base in the second inning Saturday against the Minnesota Twins.

He is being evaluated, the Sox said.

Jiménez hit a grounder to third, stumbled after crossing first base and fell. He got to his feet but was taken off the field on a cart.

He is slashing .222/.256/.333 with one home run and seven RBIs in 11 games.

Jiménez played just 55 games last season after suffering a ruptured left pectoral tendon during a Cactus League game.

The Sox already are missing starting center fielder Luis Robert (groin strain) in this series. Robert suffered the injury Thursday in Cleveland. Manager Tony La Russa is hopeful Robert will return Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals.

Starting right fielder AJ Pollock returned from the injured list (strained right hamstring) Friday.
