A ripening player who's outperformed scouting expectations at every level of minor league ball, Angel third base prospect Luis Jimenez pops up on sabermetric radar a lot more often than he does in spiral notebooks or conference calls. Jimenez's impressive .309/.334/.495 AAA numbers in a full season with Salt Lake might look freakish, but it's exactly consistent with the .302/.338/.518 line he's posted in a five year minor league career that's included every level of play in six different leagues. He's even raked in winter ball.

Old-time scouts grouse about his smallish frame and lack of 'big league' power, but any team that can get an .856 OPS and solid fielding from a short, line-drive hitting third baseman is a very lucky team indeed. Look for him to touch MLB this season. A great 'unknown' breakout candidate.
