7/2/18
Jimenez has a small, thin frame at 5-foot-9, 130-pounds. He uses a high leg kick to use some of his lower half however, he could use his legs more to add velo. The righty throws from a ¾ arm slot and throws his Fastball between 70-74 mph. His off-speed consists of a 58-61 mph Curveball that breaks with 11/5 action and a CH thrown at 58-60 mph. As Jimenez continues to grow he will benefit from using more of his lower half and keeping his arm speed consistent with all 3 of his pitches. At the plate he starts in a balanced setup before getting into his fluid, simple loading sequence. A contact type hitter that takes a slightly downhill path to contact. Swing offers a similar amount of strength and speed through the zone. A young kid with feel for the barrel. Should see easy increases in pop as he adds strength with his efficient swing. Stood out for infield play. Obvious athleticism out there with a quick first step. Plays fast without compromising fluidity. Ball skills are far ahead of the curve for his class. True middle infield skill set at this stage. Young, talented ball player to follow.
60-yard dash: 7.27
Infield Velocity: 72
Exit Velocity: 77

3/11/18

Very projectable frame with long limbed and room to add. Works with a slower paced tempo to a delivery that doesn’t require a ton of effort. Uses a chest high leg lift before his drop and drive load. Arm action is longer through a high-¾ slot. Ball comes out well with his fastball sitting 64-66 mph, touching 68 twice. Will need to improve command of the offering. A candidate for more velocity as he adds strength to frame. Spins an 11/5 shaped breaking ball with some bite and solid depth at 58-60 mph. Changeup is thrown with near fastball arm speed at 60-63 mph. The pitch offers both run and dive. Both secondary offerings projects as above average pitches. A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced stance. Keeps hands quiet during his leg kick load. Launches form a balanced position and takes a mostly level path to the baseball. Bat is stronger than it is fast but bat speed is also an adequate tool. A line drive type with enough juice to find the gaps. A rangy infielder with a third baseman’s frame. Plays fast too and shows above average ball skills through fielding. An above average defender for class in general.

60-yard dash: 7.85

Infield Velocity: 65

Exit Velocity: 66
