Scouting Report
: Jimenez shows strong athleticism from the waist up, but his legs and footwork can be somewhat lumbering. At the plate, Jimenez makes excellent contact and has a solid hitting approach. Very smooth swing, generates good lift on the ball and hits a lot of line drives. Doesn't strike out much; could stand to take a few more walks. Not much present power, and probably won't be a powerful slugger long-term, but could have 15 HR potential. Power probably needs to improve at least to that level if he wants to make the majors as a 3B. However, power is not his forte - his best tools are his contact, his approach, and his athleticism. Mediocre speed on the basepaths. In the field, his glove is about average and his arm is strong, but his throws can be inaccurate at times. He's shown some range, but his footwork needs improvement, and his first step reaction at third is subpar. He's also spent some time at 1B on his way up the ladder, where he's proven to be an adequate fielder. Jimenez impressed in spring training in 2008, and as such he skipped low-A to play against age-appropriate competition in 2008. Excelled in Double-A in 2009.
