Top Dany Jimenez News

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Most experienced closing candidate

    Jimenez is viewed by A's general manager David Forst as the most experienced late-inning candidate vying for the team's closer role this spring, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Jimenez will enter 2024 with 61 major-league appearances, which have encompassed 59 innings. The right-hander has converted 12 of 16 save chances and also recorded 11 holds in that span, generating a solid 3.43 ERA and 1.14 WHIP overall in the process. Forst adds that journeyman Trevor Gott, who signed a one-year deal in December, is also under consideration for some ninth-inning opportunities, while Mason Miller, who's worked almost exclusively as a starter in his three-year professional career thus far, is considered to have excellent stuff for the role and therefore firmly in contention for it as well.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Takes second loss Wednesday

    Jimenez (0-2) took the loss against the Twins on Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on three hits and a wild pitch over one inning.

    Jimenez wasn't up to the task of preserving the 4-4 tie he inherited when entering in the eighth, allowing Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach to reach safely via a single and double, respectively, to lead off the frame, before advancing the latter to third on a wild pitch and then allowing him to cross the plate via Ryan Jeffers' run-scoring sacrifice fly. The right-hander's stumble snapped an extended stretch of strong performances for Jimenez, who'd generated scoreless appearances in 13 of his previous 14 trips to the mound, including six straight.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Opening Tuesday's contest

    Jimenez will serve as the Athletics' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Royals, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    He'll be making his first career start, but Jimenez is unlikely to cover more than two innings before turning the game over to Hogan Harris, who is expected to be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to serve as the Athletics' bulk reliever. Jimenez recently returned from an extended stay on the injured list due to a strained shoulder and has tossed 1.1 innings, giving up two earned runs over his first two appearances since being reinstated.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Back with big club

    The Athletics recalled Jimenez from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.

    Jimenez saved 11 games for Oakland a season ago, but he's struggled to return to form in 2023 after suffering a strained right shoulder in mid-April that cost him significant time. He was activated from the 60-day injured list earlier this month but made just one appearance out of the big-league bullpen before he was optioned to Las Vegas. Since reporting to Triple-A, Jimenez has looked much sharper, striking out nine over 4.1 no-hit innings across four appearances to earn the call back to Oakland. Trevor May looks to have solidified himself as Oakland's closer for the moment, but Jimenez could quickly rise up the depth chart and emerge as a key setup man.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Takes loss Monday

    Jimenez (0-1) took the loss against the Rangers on Monday, allowing two earned runs on a hit and a walk over one inning.

    Jimenez was making his first appearance since being activated from the injured list Saturday, and he ultimately couldn't snap the stretch of poor pitching that had come to define his five-outing rehab assignment. The right-hander at least didn't give up overly hard contact -- the two runs he surrendered came via a fielder's choice groundout and a sacrifice fly -- but Jimenez, who was a trusted and versatile asset as a rookie a year ago with 11 saves and four holds, likely needs to knock off more rust before being consistently called on for higher-leverage work.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Oakland optioned Jimenez to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

    Jimenez allowed two earned runs over one inning of relief in Monday's loss to the Rangers. Adrian Martinez will join the Athletics as a fresh bullpen arm ahead of Tuesday's game versus Texas.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Back from injured list

    Jimenez (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Jimenez has been sidelined since mid-April but will rejoin the active roster after a five-game rehab assignment, during which he surrendered 10 runs across 4.1 innings. The 29-year-old could work his way into a high-leverage bullpen role but may be eased in with lower-leverage situations early on.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Lit up in rehab appearance

    Jimenez (shoulder) allowed five earned runs on one hit, three walks, a hit batsman and a wild pitch over one inning in Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to Albuquerque on Wednesday. He struck out one.

    Jimenez's disastrous performance in what was already his fifth rehab appearance is of at least some concern, as it also marked the second time in the last three outings he surrendered multiple earned runs. The significant lack of control Wednesday was also alarming, and Jimenez got only 14 of his 35 pitches into the strike zone overall. The right-hander still has some time to work out the kinks on the farm, but if he doesn't demonstrate notable improvement in subsequent appearances, it's not inconceivable he'd remain at the Triple-A level for the time being once activated.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Continues rehab assignment Sunday

    Jimenez (shoulder) fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Sugar Land on Sunday.

    Jimenez was making his fourth rehab appearance overall and was able to bounce back from a rocky outing Thursday where he'd surrendered three earned runs over one-third of an inning. Sunday's appearance was Jimenez's first with the Aviators in which he didn't allow a run, so the Athletics would likely want to see him build up some more momentum before activating him.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Makes second rehab appearance

    Jimenez (shoulder) allowed an earned run on three hits and a walk over 1.1 innings in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Salt Lake on Sunday. He struck out one.

    Jimenez took the hill for his second rehab appearance and worked up to 30 pitches, nearly doubling his volume from his 16-pitch outing Thursday. As in that appearance, Jimenez surrendered an earned run, but the fact he was able to up his workload with just two days' rest is encouraging. The right-hander likely still has plenty of rust to knock off due to his long layoff, so he appears slated for additional appearances with the Aviators in coming days.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Logs first rehab appearance

    Jimenez (shoulder) allowed an earned run on two hits and a walk over one inning during Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Salt Lake on Thursday in the second game of a doubleheader.

    Jimenez got the start and fired 11 of his 16 pitches for strikes in his first game action since April 16. Assuming he has no issues with his shoulder afterward, he could make another appearance for the Aviators before the weekend is out, although the A's have no real incentive to accelerate his recovery and get him back into the big-league bullpen quickly.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: First rehab appearance set

    Jimenez (shoulder) is scheduled to make his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

    The right-hander is slated to be capped at 20 pitches in that initial outing, which will come three months to the day he was placed on the injured list with a right shoulder strain. Jimenez's ability to get through a 15-pitch live batting practice session without issues Saturday apparently gave the Athletics the confidence to have him return to game action, but the 29-year-old is likely set to spend at least a couple of weeks down on the farm given how long he's been sidelined.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Live BP goes well

    Jimenez (shoulder) came out of Saturday's 15-pitch live batting practice session feeling good, the team's official site reports.

    It's another step in the right direction during the extensive recovery process for Jimenez, whose stint on the injured list will hit three months Wednesday. The right-hander's ability to get through facing live hitters without residual issues is another positive, but he remains without a timetable for return.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Scheduled for live BP session

    Jimenez (shoulder) will throw live batting practice Saturday, Sonja Chen of MLB.com reports.

    After earning his only save of the season Opening Day, Jimenez had his season interrupted by a right shoulder strain in mid-April. After a fairly long shutdown period, he began ramping up and now appears to be on the verge of embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment. He's no sure thing to return to a high-leverage role, but it's possible he could end up handling ninth-inning duties if the A's trade Trevor May. Jimenez is not arbitration eligible until 2025, making him less likely to be dealt in a fire sale.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Throws bullpen session

    Jimenez (shoulder) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    He's finally throwing off the mound again after missing nearly three months with a right shoulder strain. Jimenez will eventually go out on a rehab assignment and is going to require multiple rehab appearances before rejoining the Athletics' bullpen.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Encouraging throwing session

    Jimenez (shoulder) threw from 90 feet on flat ground Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

    Jimenez's stay on the injured list has now exceeded two months, but the right-hander's recovery does seem to be gathering some momentum. Jimenez had been throwing from 60 feet in early June, so the increase in distance without apparent setbacks is encouraging. However, he remains without a timetable for return at the moment, and a fairly lengthy rehab assignment will be in order before activation is considered.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Throwing up to 60 feet

    Jimenez (shoulder) has begun throwing and has worked up to 60 feet, the team's official site reports.

    The report is particularly encouraging considering Jimenez, who's been on the injured list since April 19 with a right shoulder strain, didn't have a throwing program in his sights as recently as the last week of May. The solid early throwing distance is a cautiously optimistic sign, but manager Mark Kotsay confirmed there is still no timetable for Jimenez's return.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Not yet throwing

    Jimenez continues to rehabilitate his shoulder strain but has yet to begin throwing, the Associated Press reports.

    The right-hander was transferred to the 60-day injured list back on April 19, a move that has proven to be more than procedural considering Jimenez still seems to be a ways away from returning. The 29-year-old will undoubtedly be in line for a lengthy rehab assignment if and when he's able to begin ramping back up for game action.
