DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)I know he's not in the Florida State League anymore, but I'm curious about Joe Jimenez. He's dominated everywhere, and with the Tigers needs for a strong bullpen arm, can you see him coming up soon? I honestly know very little about him, and am hoping you've seen him and can let us know what you see. Thanks for the chat!
(Scott from CT)
I have seen him! You can check out my eyewitness report on Joe Jimenez right now!

Long story short the stuff is LOUD. Potential 80 Fastball, 65/70 Slider at times, 55 control.

He could be in the major league bullpen if necessary. If they are competing for a playoff spot and he keeps pitching well in AA, then I imagine he will be in the majors soon. (Steve Givarz)
2016-06-13 23:00:00 (link to chat)When does Joe Jimenez come up; do you foresee him having the stuff to continue to be productive?
(Gary from Indiana)
Could easily be a stretch run guy, what he's done this year is supported by steady stuff in line with his pre-season grades (80 FB/60 SL). (Wilson Karaman)
2016-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much longer does Joe Jimenez have to go before people start talking about the fact that he still hasn't given up a run in 2016?
(Ryan from Abingdon, MD)
If it's still that way in July, it should be a big story, even as a reliever. He's a lot of fun. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Joe Jimenez be the Tigers closer next year ? He's been amazing this year.
(Ting from Detroit)
Maybe not the traditional closer, but a high-leverage reliever, for sure. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark, Give me one name in the Tigers organization who will be in A ball or lower next year that's a sleeper, and why. Thanks.
(Marlin Scurti from Clinton Township, MI)
Ben Verlander will get talked about because of his name and bloodlines, but he should be talked about because of his skills. He has a chance to bust out a bit if he can take to playing everyday.

A couple of other names worth nothing include Harold Castro, Javier Betancourt, Steven Fuentes and a big one is Joe Jimenez. (Mark Anderson)
