Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Keeps scoreless streak going
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez grabbed his second hold of the season in Tuesday's win over the Orioles, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings with three strikeouts. He hasn't allowed a run through his first 7.2 innings of work this year.

So far, Jimenez looks like a completely different pitcher than the one who posted a 12.32 ERA and 2.11 WHIP in 19 innings last season. The 23-year-old had a good spring training and he's carrying that over to the regular season. Shane Greene has performed reasonably well as Detroit's closer, but Jimenez is the closer of the future for the Tigers, and they could turn to him at some point during an expected rebuilding season.

Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Picks up first MLB win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (1-0) picked up his first MLB win Thursday against the White Sox after tossing a perfect inning of relief.

Jimenez has yet to allow a run through his first four appearances (3.1 innings) this season. This is an encouraging sign for a player who posted a 12.32 ERA in his rookie season last year. The Tigers will likely continue turning to Jimenez in high-leverage situations, and he's a potential option to close at some point this season.

Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Yet to allow an earned run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Through his first three appearances of the season, Jimenez has not allowed an earned run over 2.1 innings of work.

It's of course incredibly early in the year, but for a player who posted a 12.32 ERA in 2017, every positive sign is welcome. Jimenez has electric stuff and could be a future closer for the Tigers, but he showed last year that he has work to do if he wants to succeed at the MLB level. The 23-year-old reportedly showed up to spring training in better shape this year, and he worked on developing a more consistent delivery. It will be interesting to see if Jimenez can sustain success for any significant amount of time. If he can, the rebuilding Tigers may choose to turn the ninth inning over to him at some point.

Tigers' Joe Jimenez: In better shape this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez lost weight in the offseason and worked on developing a more repeatable, consistent delivery, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

After posting a 12.32 ERA and 2.11 WHIP in 19 innings at the MLB level last season, Jimenez looks like a new pitcher in spring training. Through five innings of work, he hasn't allowed an earned run and has struck out eight. "I feel a lot better now," Jimenez said. "Just mechanically, my arm feels good. Everything just seems right." Of course, spring training success doesn't always carry over into the regular season, but it's at least a positive sign that the 23-year-old could take a step forward this year.

Tigers' Joe Jimenez: Impressing this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez, who has not allowed an earned run in five innings of work this spring, is making a good impression on manager Ron Gardenhire, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Jimenez has good stuff, but he struggled mightily last season, posting a 12.32 ERA and 2.11 WHIP in 19 innings. The 23-year-old has made offseason changes to his slider grip, and so far he looks good in camp. "Really good," Gardenhire said. "The ball is jumping out of his hand. When he's throwing it over the plate like that, attacking the hitter, putting them in a hole, he can be very good." Shane Greene will be Detroit's closer in 2018, but Jimenez could be the closer of the future.
