Joe Alexander Jimenez is a 2013 RHP with a 6-3 220 lb. frame from Bayamon, PR who attends PRBAHS. Big strong athletic build, power pitcher's look. Sound delivery mechanics, long extended arm action with some hook in back, 3/4's arm slot, works downhill, ball comes out cleanly, some effort on release. Steady low 90's fastball, topped out at 93 mph, maintained velocity well, fastball mostly straight with occasional running action. Introduced new slider since last few events, good pitch with late break and good feel in the strike zone, low 70's curveball is a "get me over pitch" and effective in the right counts. Gets nice movement and sink on change up but can maintain arm speed better. Keeps getting better every time we see him, velocity is up, slider is a promising pitch and beginning to show nice pitchability. Good student, signed with Florida International.
