DateQuestionAnswer
2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Andres Gimenez of the Mets can get regular playing time this year or next ? Would he need to switch positions with Cano, Rosario, and even Jed Lowrie. I thought maybe he could go to 2nd before the Cano trade. Thanks
(Thanks from Fargo)
This year, no. Next year, sure. If he forces the issue, a spot will open up for him, no matter where it is. I wouldn't overthink the impact on him. -BS (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
2019-02-18 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Kevin, with speed a rare commodity these days, who in the minor leagues not named Brujan and Wes Rogers can you see impacting the game on the basepaths in 2019 and beyond? Thanks for taking my question!
(feldman from Ft. Myers)
I mean, plenty of guys have 25+ SB upside. Madrigal is someone outside our top-20 prospects who could do it. Garrett Hampson this year has long-term upside of .300 and 30+ SB. Andres Gimenez isn't bad. Victor Victor Mesa. Jordyn Adams has 20/40 upside. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Scoresheet question [multiple leagues] - Which prospects on (or should be on) the recently-published Dynasty Prospects list are significantly better for Scoresheet Baseball than for regular Fantasy? Other than "SB guys", which are significantly worse?
(Homer from Springfield)
Honestly, I think for Scoresheet leagues, the non-fantasy 101 could be a better translator. With defense and approach key components for Scoresheet success, "glove-first" guys aren't as much of a disaster in Scoresheet as they are in traditional leagues. A guy like Andres Gimenez comes to mind-someone that does a bunch of things well and could ultimately play a few different postions. Luis Rengifo, like we talked about before, is another one. Flexibility is huge. (Mark Barry)
2019-01-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Generally, if a prospect maintains level of performance as he rises through minors, he becomes a better prospect because he is closer to the majors and therefore less risky. If Andres Gimenez goes .280/.370/.400 in AAA this year, does he rise up rankings? Or because he has a limited ceiling, is #38 about as high as he can top out?
(Mike from Trenton)
I suspect if Gimenez does that he won't be prospect-eligible. But this isn't all that different from what happened with Willy Adames and he made the top 20. I'd expect that's about where Giminez would "top out." (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-12-10 16:00:00 (link to chat)Need to cut one of the following: Sixto, Alcantara, Touki, Andres Gimenez or Dustin May. I'm leaning toward May because of the lack of ML proximity.
(Jim from (Dynasty League))
I think May or Alcantara is the right call, and May would be the easiest to get back given that proximity issue. (Darius Austin)
2018-11-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Mets' middle infield prospect depth real or a mirage? Andres Gimenez, Rony Mauricio and Sheryven Newton all seem like legit prospects at SS, but ....?
(wileecoyote121 from Mamaroneck, NY)
It's legit depth, but it's also prospect depth so it can evaporate in a year (also those latter two dudes may slide over to third) (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-07-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Fantasy keeper-wise, how would you rank Khalil Lee, Cristian Pache, and Andres Gimenez? Do you expect any of the 3 to become stars? Thank you
(Larry from Pittsburgh)
Just like you have them. Pache might have the highest upside of the bunch and could become a star if he continues progressing in the power department and learns to take a walk *and* lay off sliders. He has 80-grade defense and speed but he's got a ways to go. Gimenez doesn't have a standout tool and Lee has an awesome eye at the plate but doesn't have monster power or speed, so their star potential is capped a bit. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)If Wander Javier was traded to the Mets, where would he rank in their prospect system. 1 or 2?
(Dusty from Colorado)
This was, of course, the first question in the queue. And I love the optimism that he has to be 1 or 2.

Okay, so, Andres Gimenez made the midseason 50, and I argued like hell for Peter Alonso (who was on various iterations and got knocked off late in the process). So he's at least third!

I actually just did a Mets top 10 for an article on BP Mets that's coming out soon, and I think he'd rank somewhere between 7th and 10th, for a serious answer. I'd want to run down the severity of his injury and the reports out of extended before he suffered it to get tighter than that. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Was Andres Gimenez always so fast? Also, to be noted, Amed Rosatio seemed to pickup speed in the Mets system. Possible that Mets have some positive player dev aspects or am I overthinking?
(Lamar from NJ )
They're using football-style training, which emphasizes speed improvement in a way baseball-style training doesn't. Mike Barwis's background is literally as a major college football strength and conditioning coach. (Jarrett Seidler)
2018-06-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)What have you heard from Andres Gimenez looks?
(Xavier from NY)
Straight from the midseason Mets org update BP Mets will be publishing probably next week sometime:

"So Gimenez shed some baby fat and is showing a bit more pop and a bit better odds at sticking at shortstop." (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Luis Garcia be the top 2B prospect in 2 years? If not him, who?
(Steve from DC)
Jarrett's liked him more at third this year, but a lot of this is gonna depend on what the Nats look like in two years, or maybe what Carter Kieboom looks like in two years. I'll also suggest that we aren't so high on him that your first question is a likely yes for me. It's more likely to be like Andres Gimenez or Royce Lewis or Wander Javier or someone like that. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-06-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Andres Gimenez gonna steal 40 bases this year? If he finishes with a .775 OPS in the PSL as a 19 y/o with middle infield defense and speed, he has to be a top 50 national guy, right?
(Max from CT)
Probably but I struggle with what the upside is here. He's a weird profile, very advanced, but is it realllllly 6 hit/45 game pop/5 SS glove. I dunno. That's kinda what is has to be to be Top 50. He is on the long list for Midseason, and if he makes the back end that usually susses out at like 40-75 in the offseason. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)The Mets successfully pushed Andres Gimenez to full-season ball at 18 - after reading all these gushing reports over Ronny Mauricio, do you think there's any chance he gets the same treatment?
(Phil from Long Island)
They have reps to give in Columbia if they want to do that, they can play Fermin at 2B and he's gotten time at CF, and he's the only meaningful infield prospect there at the moment. Gimenez also didn't get assigned there, he mashed his way there in XST. Same thing applies to Vientos here. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-04-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)Can Andres Gimenez put up an .800 ops in psl this year and become a top 50 prospect?
(Lars from Conn)
Sure, it's possible. The frame looked a little better too from what little I saw in Spring. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-11-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)A few under the radar prospects I really love: Andres Gimenez, Wander Javier, Danny Jansen, Akil Baddoo, Jorge Guzman, and Dennis Santana on the Dodgers. Any of these guys jump out at you at big risers in 2018?
(hunt4prospects from USA)
Okay it's actually Wander Javier here. No joke.

I like Gimenez too, but he's more of a slow burn profile. The pitchers are likely both relievers (here's Wilson's Santana report http://legacy.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_pit.php?reportid=497). Jansen is more a good backup, Baddoo is legit too. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-11-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who’s your pick for 2018 mets breakout prospect?
(Xavier from Ct)
Usually this will be a dude coming stateside or a guy blowing up in full season (or if you are Andres Gimenez, both). Mets don't have an obvious candidate for the latter (Maybe one of the arms like Kyle Wilson, Christian James, or Daison Acosta, but I don't see any of them as *big* prospects). So the chalk here is probably one of the seven-figure J2 guys getting pushed and showing well in Kingsport. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)How do you compare Andres Gimenez to Wander Javier?
(Dusty from Colorado)
Well, Gimenez has done it at a much higher level now. Javier is way more toolsed up, Gimenez is way more polished? (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)What have you heard on Andres Gimenez? Seems to really be holding his own despite skipping 3 levels......what can we Mets fans dream on with this kid?
(Todd from NY)
Saw him for a series, quite liked him but it's not necessarily a huge tools upside profile like Rosario is. He's not going to be on the midseason 50, but he has a shot at the 101. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Andres Gimenez a better prospect now than he was before this season? Or is a .272/.335/.354 line about what you would've expected from him after his monster summer in 2016?
(Lester from St Lucie)
Yeah, I think his stock is up. Anytime an 18-year-old jumps from a foreign complex league and posts a league-average line in full-season ball, that's a big win. And we have greater verification on what the tools and package looks like. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-05-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Andres Gimenez is a similar kind of/caliber prospect to how Gleyber was at this age (mostly the polish) seems like they are similar athletes with Gleyber more hit and Gimenez more D
(Rizzo from Delaware )
Past them both being polished middle infielders with advanced hit tools for their age they don't have all that much else in common I'd say. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you think of any other big time prospects other than Andres Gimenez who were skipped straight to full-season ball like that? What are your thoughts on him and how he might fare with this aggressive assignment?
(Gary from NY)
The Mets did this with Lagares, would imagine it happened more twenty years ago with bigger prep dudes. Apparently he was killing extended so bad that he forced their hand. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)If Andres Gimenez ends up with a .300/.375/.430 ish season at Colombia is he a top 25 prospect? Is he kind of similar to Gleyber a few years ago?
(Alex from Sc)
If the tools back up that performance (and you'd imagine they would for an 18-year-old with no other stateside experience), yeah maybe. Gleyber wasn't a top 25 dude at 18 though. Gimenez projects as a better shortstop, but less pop (at least for now). I'll have a bunch more on him in two weeks. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)If they were coming out of the draft this year as HS seniors, where would Andres Gimenez and Vlad Jr be drafted?
(Mark from Uconn)
We can probably figure this out as a thought exercise, right? Coming into this season both were roughly in the 100-125 range, behind around a dozen to fifteen draftees. Throw in some uncertainty and another year of development and I'd think both would be around the top ten, perhaps a little higher.

This is a bit apples to oranges because of the differences between developmental systems, of course. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What does Andres Gimenez playing some ML spring training mean for his season. Do you think this may be a sign that he could start the season playing for Columbia?
(Earl from SC)
It means he was in STEP camp basically. They have pulled a lot of guys over from the full prospect range this Spring. A full season ball assignment would be incredibly aggressive even if they didn't already have a very crowded middle infield situation on tap there. I'd expect Kingsport or Brooklyn, if he really shines in extended. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Was it tough to justify putting Maitan on the list and not Andres Gimenez?
(Sammy from Conn)
I think Maintain's superior offensive tools made it less difficult, but I get the general point. And on both we are dart-throwing to an extentuntil there are stateside reports. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)I have an odd one for you- If you had to bet, and were given 50/50 odds whether or not Andres Gimenez would be on the top 101 in 2018, which side of the bet would you choose?
(Zach from NJ)
Without putting my finger on the scale here--since I am the one theoretically signing off on that list--I'll say he gets a just missed entry. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)For you, would it be tough to justify ranking Kevin Maitan as a top 30 prospect but leaving off Andres Gimenez?
(Shan from Houston)
It would be, if only because I think international scouting is 25 percent performance and 75 percent mythology. To hear it said, you'd think Kevin Maitan is already as good a hitter as Miggy and plays shortstop to boot. Maybe that's what he becomes, in which case the myths are true. But I never really trust any rankings on international guys until they have at least a year in organized ball stateside. Ultimately, if I were a Mets fan, I'd be geeked over Gimenez, and I don't think Maitan's position as one tick higher should really dampen that. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many GMs out there would rather have Andres Gimenez than Maitan?
(Georges from ATL)
The Mets do a really underrated job with their IFAs, but you are paying for upside with 16-year-olds, and Maitan just has more. the three million difference in bonus is a rounding error. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many Mets would you personally put on the top 101. Would you expect that number to grow, shrink or stay the same next year?
(Riley from NJ)
So I got snarked for answering a lot of Mets questions last time. It was the NL East chats, and I always end up with a lot of Mets questions in the queue anyway, because I covered the Mets system for five years. There's still a lot in the AL East chat, but _(ツ)_/

Anyway, I left them mostly for last this time, but there's a lot of them left, so here they come.

Rosario, Gsellman, Szapucki are the easy ones. I could see cases for Smith, Lindsay, Dunn, but it probably ends up only being three. Gsellman is the only lock to graduate, and I'd bet at least one of the other three move into the top 101, and there is also the possibility that Andres Gimenez is a monster once he comes stateside. So I don't think it shrinks. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which Mets prospect (other than Szapucki and Rosario) are you most intrigued by in the coming year?
(Mitch from NY)
Andres Gimenez, very curious how much I will look like an idiot and in which direction. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-12-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Mets seem to have a couple prospects with some serious helium velocity, specifically Thomas Szapucki, Andres Gimenez and Desmond Lindsay. What do you make of these guys and which have the best chance of being a top 50 prospect by midseason?
(Hermes from NYC)
If you're talking about the BP Top 50, I'd certainly guess Szap. Jeff and Jarrett love that guy, and if he maintains the velo to start 2017, people are going to lose their minds. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Where would Andres Gimenez be taken in 2017 MLB draft if he were coming out of HS as a prep SS?
(Hank from NJ)
I feel comfortable right now saying top 15-20, but ask me again in June and the answer might be a lot higher. Excited to see him stateside this year. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is Andres Gimenez's ceiling?
(Ryan from US)
He's so far away that it's functionally limitless, right? If we're just talking ceiling, he could end up being Dansby Swanson in three or four years - good defensive shortstop projected to hit for a strong average and medium power. Or he could totally not be. Ceilings are fun. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is more valuable- Kevin Maitain or Andres Gimenez?
(Mallex from ATL)
Hell if I know.

You want to bet on the louder offensive tools, or the guy more likely to stick at shortstop? And those descriptions could be reversed in four years. Life comes at you fast at 17. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)So Andres Gimenez got 1.6 mil as an IFA in 2015. If GMs were somehow able to see how successful he was in the DSL in 2016, how much (more) money would he have gotten a year ago?
(Rafeel from FL)
I don't know that DSL stats ever tell us anything new. Good production beats bad production of course. And the reports coming out of there are better. It's tough with the nature of the pools and caps, and which teams decide to blow out to say how much more he'd be worth. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on the potential of Andres Gimenez?
(Ben from SD)
Can't say I know much about him, but you have to love a young shortstop who has good contact and on base skills. I'd defer to scouts on his ability to stick at short, because his profile of speed and patience might be a little less valuable down the defensive spectrum. But I'd totally be excited as a Mets fan -- that's the kind of profile that has an outside shot to turn into a top prospect, whether or not that means he's a contributing Met down the road or trade bait. (Trevor Strunk)
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)Vlad Guerrero JR a furutre top 10 prospect?
(Steve from Chicago)
I don't think we had eyes on Vlad Jr. this year, so I know about as much as you. He's got a chance, but like Andres Gimenez, there's quite a lot between here and there. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of potential does Andres Gimenez have? Future top prospect?
(Craig from NYC)
A few Andres Gimenez questions tonight. Unfortunately, Gimenez is in a huge blind spot for public prospect analysis -- the international complex leagues. I can try to give you an answer based on looking up YouTubes, or I can tell you that Ben Badler from Baseball America knows way more about this stuff than I do and is really high on him. The latter is probably more valuable information to you. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hypothetically, if Andres Gimenez had been allowed to re-enter the IFA pool this summer (after most of the season was competed), how much money would he have gotten?
(Fred from New Jersey)
This is an Andres Gimenez question I can at least take a better swing at. A lot more teams blew the IFA cap this year, and his stock is clearly up, but there seems to be a ceiling right around $4m for what teams will pay for "normal" teenage J2 types. So let's guess $3-4m. This is a total guess. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)Andres Giminez - should I own him in my dynasty league? Can he be a top 10 prospect down the line?
(Nick from NY)
Let's finish out the trinity of Andres Gimenez questions. I know very little about fantasy at this point. There's absolutely that kind of elite upside based on his reports, but he's at least a couple years away from actualizing it, and a zillion things can happen between the DSL and the top of the prospect lists, let alone the majors. Excited to see him show up stateside, though. (Jarrett Seidler)
