Mets' Andres Gimenez: Could be part of expanded roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez is a likely beneficiary if big-league teams are allowed to use expanded rosters to accommodate a shortened or compacted schedule, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports.

Proposals have been floated that would see a 29-man roster in MLB for at least the first month of a shortened season. In that scenario, Gimenez -- the Mets' No. 6 fantasy prospect -- could find a home on the bench, giving the club extra insurance at second base in case Robinson Cano is unable to return to form. The 21-year-old's bat still appears to be behind his glove, however, so expectations for Gimenez's offensive production should be kept in check if he does get playing time in the majors this season.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The Mets protected the 21-year-old from the Rule 5 draft in November by adding him to the 40-man roster, but he was never a likely option to open the season in the majors. Gimenez spent the 2019 campaign at Double-A Binghamton and had a .696 OPS in 117 games, but he'll look for more success at Triple-A once this season starts up after adding a leg kick to his swing over the offseason.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Adds leg kick to swing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez added a leg kick to his swing prior to the 2019 season, Deesha Thosar of New York Daily News reports.

Gimenez has been effective this spring as he attempts to make his case for a major-league roster spot, going 4-for-12 with one home run and one stolen base over five games. The 21-year-old apparently added a leg kick to his swing prior to the 2019 season, which may have correlated with his slightly improved power numbers as he hit nine home runs, but his batting average also fell to .250 after recording a .281 batting average the year before. While it's somewhat unlikely the shortstop would open the season on the major-league roster, he could make his debut sometime in 2020 if he remains effective in the minors.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez was added to the Mets' 40-man roster Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

This move protects Gimenez from the Rule 5 draft. He spent all of 2019 back at Double-A and went to the Arizona Fall League for the second year in a row. Gimenez's bat will probably be a little light on impact, but he is a good athlete capable of playing up the middle and offers plus speed on the bases. He should spend most, if not all, of 2020 at Triple-A.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Putting together impressive July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, two RBI and a stolen base for Double-A Binghamton on Sunday.

A HBP on his right hand/wrist in early June derailed the 20-year-old's season for a couple of weeks, but Gimenez has been raking since the calendar flipped to July, slashing .321/.351/.509 in 15 games. The Mets' No. 5 fantasy prospect has only a .680 OPS on the year, but he's got the talent and the hit tool to maintain his current momentum straight through the rest of the season.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Returns from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez (hand/wrist) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Saturday and went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in his return to the lineup for Double-A Binghamton.

Gimenez missed just under two weeks after suffering the hand injury when he was hit by a pitch. The shortstop was fortunate to avoid any structural damage and looks like he'll be ready to resume his usual everyday role for the Rumble Ponies now that he's off the IL. Widely viewed as one of the Mets' top position prospects, the 20-year-old Gimenez is hitting .232 with two home runs and 10 steals across 205 plate appearances in the Eastern League this season.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez's X-rays on his right hand and wrist were negative Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Gimenez was hit by a pitch last week and was placed on the 7-day injured list, but he appears to have escaped serious injury. He posted a .232/.305/.333 slash line in 45 games for Double-A Binghamton prior to the injury.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Lands on minor-league IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez was placed on the 7-day injured list Thursday with a hand or wrist injury, Andrew Battifarano of reports.

The move, which is retroactive to Monday, comes after Gimenez was hit by a pitch on the hand during Double-A Binghamton's game against Portland over the weekend. Specifics regarding the issue remain unclear, leaving the well-regarded 20-year-old without a timetable for his return. Prior to landing on the shelf, Gimenez was slashing .232/.305/.333 with two homers and 11 stolen bases in 45 games for the Rumble Ponies.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Pops first Double-A homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, a solo home run and a second run scored for Double-A Binghamton on Thursday.

The 20-year-old has had a sluggish start to the season, and even after this monster performance he still only sports a .229/.289/.457 slash line through eight games. Gimenez played 37 games at Double-A last year, but the Mets' No. 3 fantasy prospect doesn't appear poised for a quick promotion, and the organization has little reason to rush him up the ladder. His carrying tools offensively have been his speed and ability to make contact, but if Gimenez can add some useful power to his profile as well, he becomes a much more intriguing target in formats that only roster a limited number of minor leaguers.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Moves over to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets assigned Gimenez to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

The 20-year-old shortstop acquitted himself well while attending camp as a non-roster player, recording four hits (including a home run) in 16 at-bats while striking out only twice. Gimenez has displayed some strong bat-to-ball skills and an ability to rack up steals in the minors, but his below-average power profile may lower his overall ceiling once he matriculates to the big leagues. Regardless, Gimenez should have a good shot at emerging as a fixture in the middle infield for the Mets down the road, perhaps as soon as 2020.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Taking advantage of playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

The blast, his first of the spring, came off minor-league arm Nick Anderson, but it was still a strong performance from Gimenez. The Mets' No. 2 fantasy prospect has been getting extra playing time with Amed Rosario (hand) on the shelf, but Gimenez has no chance of breaking camp with the big-league club after reaching Double-A for the first time late last season as a 19-year-old, slashing .277/.344/.358 over 37 games for Binghamton.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Earns invite to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez was invited to the Mets' major-league spring training Thursday.

Gimenez isn't a real candidate to break camp with the Mets, as the 20-year-old has yet to appear at Triple-A, but he'll get a chance to prove himself against big-league competition this spring after his breakout campaign in 2018. The youngster hit .281 and stole 38 bases across stops at High-A and Double-A. Look for him to return to the upper minors to begin the 2019 season.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Receives promotion to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets promoted Gimenez from High-A St. Lucie to Double-A Binghamton on Sunday, Vincent Lara-Cinisomo of reports.

At 19 years and 10 months of age, Gimenez becomes the second-youngest player in the Double-A ranks behind Blue Jays farmhand Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (19 years, four months). According to Mets director of player development Ian Levin, the shortstop demonstrated enough progress at the plate and in the field to earn a new challenge after he slashed .282/.348/.432 with 30 extra-base hits and 28 stolen bases across 351 plate appearances for High-A St. Lucie. At 5-foot-11 and 161 pounds, Gimenez doesn't project for much more than average power at his peak, but he possesses enough range to stick at shortstop long term and should deliver quality batting averages year in and year out.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Goes yard twice at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez went 2-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI for High-A St. Lucie in Monday's extra-inning win over Tampa.

It was the first multi-homer game of the 19-year-old's minor-league career. Gimenez, the Mets' No. 2 fantasy prospect, has put together a solid campaign against mainly older competition in the Florida State League, slashing .291/.362/.463 through 49 games with four homers and 19 steals in 23 attempts. With Amed Rosario settling in at shortstop on the big-league roster, the organization has no reason to rush Gimenez, so don't be surprised if he spends the whole season at St. Lucie and doesn't face the Double-A test until 2019.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Beginning season at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez has been assigned to High-A St. Lucie to begin the 2018 season, Jonathan Mayo of reports.

The Mets' No. 2 fantasy prospect held his own in his full-season debut last year, slashing .265/.346/.349 with four homers and 14 steals in 92 games for Low-A Columbia. Gimenez's glove is still ahead of his bat, but the 19-year-old shortstop could still develop into a reliable top-of-the-order hitter in the majors.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Holding his own at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez, 18, is hitting .273/.328/.355 with two home runs and six steals on 10 attempts in 183 at-bats for Low-A Columbia.

His numbers may not look that impressive, but considering he is 18 years old and has been an above-average hitter (104 wRC+) in the South Atlantic League, his dynasty-league stock is trending up. Gimenez's hit tool has a chance to be plus, but he won't do much damage in the power or speed departments. However, he is a lock to stick at shortstop, and has a chance to hit first or second in a quality big-league lineup someday.

Mets' Andres Gimenez: Fast start at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gimenez, 18, is batting .313/.405/.469 with one home run,and five RBI through eight games for Low-A Columbia.

Gimenez is off to a fast start in his full-season debut. The sweet-swinging lefty hit a robust .350/.469/.523 in a combined 62 games in the Dominican Summer Leagues in 2016, and he could have more pop than expected. Add in decent speed, and Gimenez could end up being a steal for the Mets.
