Eloy Jimenez is preparing to play more games in the outfield this season, especially in right, after the Chicago White Sox signed Andrew Benintendi to a five-year, $75 million contract.

The White Sox also have Luis Robert in center, to go along with Gavin Sheets and prospect Oscar Colas in the mix in right.

Jimenez was sidelined for a couple of months last season after he had surgery in April to repair a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee.

Asked whether he would embrace the DH role this year, Jimenez responded: "I don't know."

"Last year, when I was DH'ing more than [playing] the outfield, it was because I got surgery. And I understand that," he said. "But this year, I've been working really hard to play the outfield more than DH. So I don't really think that I'm going to accept it, because if I'm working hard, I'm going to get better, and I want to play in the outfield."
