    Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Tests positive for COVID-19

    The Detroit Tigers announced Monday that Joe Jimenez tested positive for COVID-19, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.Along with Jimenez, bench coach George Lombard tested positive for the virus, despite both having been vaccinated. It's unclear if the Tigers have a player readily available to take Jimenez's spot on the 28-man active roster for Monday's game in Pittsburgh, so the team could wait until Tuesday before placing Jimenez on the COVID-19 injured list. Jimenez will need to complete a quarantine period of at least 10 days and test negative for the virus before he's eligible to rejoin the Tigers.

    Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Notches first save in 2021

    Joe Jimenez pitched a perfect inning and struck out two to earn the save in Sunday's 5-3 extra-innings win over Toronto.After regular closer Gregory Soto kept the game tied in the ninth inning and failed to secure the win in the 10th, Detroit rallied ahead in the 11th. Enter Jimenez, who threw eight of his 10 pitches for strikes to lock down his first save in 2021. The right-hander logged 17 saves over the three previous seasons, but he's seen more of a middle-innings role this year while struggling to a 6.31 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 35.2 innings. As such, Jimenez shouldn't be expected to draw many more save chances outside of emergency situations like Sunday.

    Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Hit hard Wednesday

    Joe Jimenez allowed three runs in an inning of work during Wednesday's win over the Twins. He gave up three hits and a walk while striking out two.The Detroit Tigers prevailed 17-14, so no one really pitched well in this one, and that includes Jimenez. The righty now has a 7.07 ERA this season, and he's clearly fallen behind the likes of Jose Cisnero, Michael Fulmer and Gregory Soto in the Detroit bullpen. That gives Jimenez very little fantasy value unless injuries or trades open up a bigger opportunity later in the year. Even then, the 26-year-old is unlikely to become a trustworthy option anytime soon.

The 26-year-old has had his share of struggles this season with a 7.54 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and a 28:21 K:BB over 22.2 innings.
