De Jesus signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
ANALYSIS
After playing in 180 games at the major-league level the previous two seasons, De Jesus didn't appear in a single game for the Brewers in 2017 as the shortstop spent the entire year with Triple-A Colorado Springs. During that time, he slashed .345/.407/.488 with seven home runs and 65 RBI, and should be able to provide a little extra depth to the Red Sox's infield if needed this upcoming season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2012
2011
2010
2009
2008
De Jesus was a replacement-level player with the Reds in 2016. While his offensive numbers weren't pretty, De Jesus proved to be a valuable defensive player on the infield. At 29 years old, De Jesus most likely is what he is at this point, which is a below-average hitter and above-average defender in the middle infield. After the Reds cut bait, De Jesus joined the Brewers on a minor league deal. His defensive value and versatility may help De Jesus find his way onto the major league roster in 2017, but there is no clear path to regular playing time.
De Jesus is a "break glass in case of emergency" type of player - a decent enough bench player who can sub in at a number of positions when needed, but not really capable of being an everyday player. That emergency arose with the Reds in 2015, after the team lost Zack Cozart and Billy Hamilton to injury and traded away Marlon Byrd. He has a chance of sticking as a utility infielder and fourth outfielder, but he doesn't hit for nearly enough power to be a candidate for the Reds' open left field job, or really any of the other vacancies that are likely to open as the team continues to trade away their veterans.
DeJesus recovered from a poor 2010 to bat .310/.389/.423 last year for Triple-A Albuquerque. His most improved skill? Plate discipline. DeJesus walked in 10 percent of his plate appearances last year versus a prior-year rate of just six percent. General Manager Ned Colletti thought so much of DeJesus' potential as a utilityman that he went out and signed Jerry Hairston and Adam Kennedy as backups, likely relegating DeJesus to Triple-A for the third straight year. A change of scenery is likely his best hope at a significant big league role.
DeJesus rebounded from a lost year in 2009 (broken leg) to bat .295/.333/.403 for Triple-A Albuquerque last season. Modest numbers indeed considering the favorable hitting environment of the Pacific Coast League, but DeJesus followed that up with an impressive Arizona Fall League stint (.321/.411/.436). He doesn't have an obvious role on the 2011 Dodgers barring an injury to an incumbent, so expect a utility role or a return to Albuquerque.
Added to the 40-man roster in November, DeJesus' 2009 consisted of just 10 minor league at-bats after the 22-year-old suffered a broken left tibia during spring training in March. DeJesus batted .324 with seven homers and 16 stolen bases for Double-A Jacksonville in 2008 and could conceivably compete for a 25-man roster spot in 2010. More likely, though, he'll open the season in Triple-A and see sporadic playing time for the Dodgers later in the season. He's a potential starter in 2011, though his long-term offensive upside appears relatively limited.
A former second-round pick and son of an ex-big leaguer with the same name, DeJesus was named the organization's minor league player of the year in 2008. The 21-year-old hit .324/.419/.423 for Double-A Jacksonville, stealing 16 bases in the process. His poise and ability to control the strike zone will get him to the big leagues, though his ceiling appears to be that of a solid, not spectacular shortstop or second baseman. He'll open 2009 in Triple-A.
The son of a former big leaguer with the same name, DeJesus was a second-round pick of the Dodgers in 2005, and had another solid season in 2007. Playing for High-A Inland Empire, DeJesus batted .287/.371/.381 with 11 stolen bases. He has great range in the field, but he's still raw as his 30 errors in 2007 show. He'll begin Double-A this year as a 20-year-old, but because he doesn't project for much power, he's got a ways to go before we can consider him a valuable fantasy prospect.
