WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
The Pirates signed Jimenez as a non-drafted senior out of Division III Chapman, where he was a teammate of Nick Garcia.  Jimenez batted 302/402/371 as a junior (the team batted 287/370/395) and 348/396/587 in a dozen games as a senior before the season was interrupted.  He generally had good walk and strikeout rates.  Jimenez threw out 17 of 68 base stealers as a junior and five of 26 as a senior.  He probably profiles as an organizational catcher.

R:  000/000/000, 5 AB, 2 K
AA:  167/375/667, 6 AB, 1 HR, 2 BB, 1 K

Jimenez filled in very briefly at Altoona and in the FCL.  The one hit he had was a home run.

If Jimenez returns in 2022, it’ll likely be in the same role.
