White Sox prospect Eloy Jimenez is so hot right now that he's calling his home runs

Eloy Jimenez was the main piece heading back to the White Sox in the Jose Quintana trade with the Cubs.

The 20-year-old outfielder is mashing the ball since the trade. He stayed in the Carolina League, but moved from Myrtle Beach to Winston-Salem. In 20 games with the Dash he's hitting .352/.418/.690 with five home runs and 13 extra base hits.

On Friday, he had some fun with pitcher Ian Clarkin, who was one of the prospects who went from the Yankees to the White Sox in the Todd Frazier trade. Before the game Clarkin took a video of Jimenez calling a home run.

"This is Eloy Jimenez," he said in the video. "I'm going to hit a home run because I'm the best."

So, of course, he hit a three-run home run. Clarkin had some fun posting the pregame video and video of the home run a few minutes apart on twitter.

The Athletic's James Fegan was there in person to tell the story. He had an anecdote that makes it even better.

Dash play-by-play broadcaster Joe Weil had a comment sure to excite White Sox fans even more.

Add this story to the legend of Eloy Jimenez.

The legend of Nicky Delmonico grows every night. 

On Friday, the White Sox rookie produced his second career multi-homer game in extraordinary fashion.

The first of his two bombs was just a good, old-school mash to right field: 

The second, however, conflated muscle and hustle: 

What can't this guy do? 

The pair of homers boosted his total to five in just 15 games. May want to save voters the time and just induct him into baseball's Hall of Fame now.
