WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

The Pirates signed Jimenez shortly after the 2018-19 signing period began.  They had to wait a couple weeks until he turned 16.

2019
DSL:  1-0-0, 2.54 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 39.0 IP, 3.9 BB/9, 10.4 K/9

Jimenez made ten starts in his debut and, considering that he only turned 17 during the season, put up remarkable numbers.  He missed about a month between early July and early August.  He had no platoon split.

Jimenez evidently was healthy, as the Pirates brought him to the fall instructional league.  He could be in the GCL in 2020.
