Cubs Minor League Prospect Literally Knocks the Lights Out During Home Run Derby (Video)


On Monday, Cubs prospect Eloy Jimenez went all The Natural during a minor league home run derby, smacking a dinger so damn hard that it knocked out an outfield light in explosive fashion.

He’s got a long ways to go before he establishes himself in the majors, but…at least people are talking, right?

The 20-year-old has been compared to Giancarlo Stanton and has been known for his power, obviously. That said, he wasn’t able to take home the home run derby title last night. But he IS the person we’re talking about from the contest, which is probably a greater honor.
