Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez has been medically cleared to resume baseball activities, the team announced Monday.

While the club states there's still no official timetable for Jimenez's return, the 24-year-old could be cleared for a rehab assignment after at least four weeks at the team's complex in Arizona.

Jimenez hasn't played this season after suffering a ruptured pectoral tendon during a spring training game in late March. He was expected to miss five-to-six months because of the ailment.

The White Sox have been hit by a number of big injuries this season. Luis Robert is out until at least August with a hip flexor tear, while infielder Nick Madrigal could be sidelined for the rest of the year with a torn right hamstring.

However, the 41-24 White Sox lead the AL Central by 5 1/2 games over the Cleveland Indians and possess baseball's best run differential at +106.
