2016

The mere fact that he's even in the minors at his age says enough about Jimenez's potential. He was signed by the Cubs out of the Dominican Republic in 2013 as a 16-year-old pup, and he's already a veteran of two minor league seasons, covering more than 400 plate appearances. While his strikeout rate is a tad high, it's certainly not exorbitant and he did improve in that area (19.5-percent in 2014, 17.2-percent in 2015) for short-season Eugene last year. Understandably, he has a long way to go before he's patrolling the outfield at Wrigley, but seven home runs in 232 at-bats for Eugene as an 18-year-old bodes well for his future. Put simply, you could do worse than to throw a dart at Jimenez in a deep dynasty league.
