  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Filling in for banged-up Bichette

    Jimenez will start at shortstop and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Jimenez will crack the lineup for the sixth time in seven contests and for the fourth game in a row as a replacement at shortstop for Bo Bichette (calf). The Blue Jays haven't yet placed Bichette on the injured list, and the team's decision thus far to eschew deactivating him implies optimism that he'll be ready to go coming out of the All-Star break. Since receiving his first big-league call-up July 2, Jimenez has gone 7-for-19 with a double, two walks, three runs and an RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Collects first big-league hits

    Jimenez went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Sunday's extra-inning win over the Mariners.

    Getting the start at second base and batting eighth, Jimenez banged out his first career hit in the second inning before reaching base again in the seventh and coming home on a George Springer homer. Jimenez will likely head back to Triple-A Buffalo when Isiah Kiner-Falefa (knee) gets healthy, but the 23-year-old could find a permanent spot on the MLB roster if the Blue Jays ship out veterans at the trade deadline.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Called up by Blue Jays

    Toronto recalled Jimenez from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Jimenez will join the 26-man roster for the first time in his career, filling Isiah Kiner-Falefa's (knee) vacated spot. Jimenez should mix in at second base and potentially third base while Kiner-Falefa is on the IL. Jimenez is slashing .271/.416/.431 with seven homers with Buffalo this season.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Sent to Triple-A

    Toronto optioned Jimenez to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    Jimenez went 2-for-12 with a 4:0 K:BB over nine games during Grapefruit League play. The 22-year-old struggled after reaching Buffalo for the first time last season, posting a .576 OPS in 18 contests. Jimenez is known for his on-base skills but has demonstrated a glaring lack of power at every stop of the minors.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Reaches Triple-A

    Jimenez was promoted to Triple-A Buffalo on Aug. 29 after slashing .287/.372/.436 with eight home runs, eight steals and a 15.9 percent strikeout rate in 76 games for Double-A New Hampshire.

    He is hitting .214 with no extra-base hits in five games since the promotion, but this has been a very successful year for Jimenez on the whole. The 22-year-old Panamanian middle infielder was added to the 40-man roster as Rule 5 draft protection back in 2021, but it wasn't until this year that he started hitting the ball with enough authority to potentially profile as more than a utility player.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Sent to MiLB camp

    Jimenez was optioned to minor-league camp by the Blue Jays on Monday, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Jimenez is on the Blue Jays 40-man roster after being protected from the 2021 Rule 5 draft, but he has yet to play above High-A in his four seasons in the Toronto system. He should start the season Double-A with an outside shot of playing for the Blue Jays before the end of 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Optioned to minors

    The Blue Jays optioned Jimenez to their minor-league camp Monday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    One of the top low-level prospects in the Blue Jays' system, Jimenez was added to the 40-man roster over the winter despite likely being two years away from the majors. He's expected to open the 2022 campaign at High-A Vancouver after he impressed in his first taste of full-season ball at Low-A Dunedin in 2021, slashing .310/.512/.375 while striking out in only 14.5 percent of his 242 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Jimenez was added to the Blue Jays' 40-man roster Friday.

    The 20-year-old shortstop is good at everything except hitting for power. He hit .315/.517/.381 with 51 walks in 54 games at Low-A and logged a .438 OBP in the Arizona Fall League. Jimenez is still probably a couple years away from making his big-league debut.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Back in action at Low-A

    Jimenez (undisclosed) returned from Low-A Dunedin's 7-day injured list Tuesday and finished 1-for-2 with a solo home run, three walks and two additional runs in the affiliate's 16-6 win over Palm Beach.

    The 20-year-old infielder was out of commission for about a month and a half with the unspecified injury. Through 39 games on the season at Low-A, Jimenez is getting on base at a prolific .449 clip while striking out in only 13.6 percent of his plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Sidelined with injury

    Jimenez was placed on the 7-day injured list at Low-A Dunedin on July 13 due to an unspecified injury.

    Before hitting the shelf, Jimenez was slashing .293/.435/.331 with zero home runs and two stolen bases across 170 plate appearances for Dunedin. He's without a clear timeline for a return.
