A squat, powerful catcher in the Jays organization, Antonio (AJ) Jimenez zipped onto a lot of short lists last season when he raked a .303/.353/.417 line in his first full season of high-A baseball. That performance at Dunedin came with four homers and eleven stolen bases, too, demonstrating that he can be a pretty well-rounded (not a weight joke) position player, too. His swing is short and powerful and shows room for future power, and since he's already showing a great batting eye and good plate discipline, there's no reason to think he can't be a quality offensive player at the MLB level in another couple of years. If the Jays remain as blocked up with catchers as they seem to be, he can also play a good first or a competent third base. And, of course, the AL has that whole DH thing, too, so he's got opportunity galore.
