Upon signing last year:

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Ht: 5’11 Wt: 158 B/T: L/R Age: 9/4/1998 (17)

Acquired: Signed on 7/2/2015 to $1.2M bonus

Profile: Gimenez agreed to a $1.2 million signing bonus with the Mets in July of 2015. He was listed as Baseball America’s #2 prospect heading into the 2015 International signing period behind Vlad Guerrero Jr. Andres was considered the top hitting shortstop prospect in Venezuela while displaying the arm and range to stay at the position long-term.

He has earned high praise from scouts both for his left-handed bat and ability to stick at shortstop according to Baseball America. He also has above average speed and could potentially be a top of the lineup bat.

2016 Level: Should start his pro career in the Dominican Summer League while getting a taste of baseball in the US before the season is over.
--------------------------------------------------------------

I wonder if this (bold) will actually happen, and where?

I don't think he passes the You @ Valent name test.

Saw him get in a spring training game yesterday vs. the Cardinals and take an atbat. He took about 4 swings (all of them made contact), went deep in the count and served an oppo base hit to LF. He has an idea up there.

His BR page says he's 6'0" but he looks more like 5'10"

Maybe he'll get into a few more spring training games. Gimenez is still 18 y/o and has yet to play beyond the Dominican Summer League.

Fangraphs prospect writer says that Gimenez would be a top 15 pick if he was draft eligible

Here is what I found on Fangraphs regarding Gimenez:


Scouting Report
Gimenez got $1.2 million during the 2015 J2 period and, as a relatively advanced defender with atypical coordination for a teenager, he somewhat surprisingly went to the DSL in 2016. One club official with whom I spoke thought the Mets, who were likely to be buyers ahead of the trade deadline last year, wanted to hide Gimenez from stateside scouts in the increasingly evaluated GCL, but any org that saw Gimenez as an amateur already knows heís good. His feel to hit is very advanced, he gets his weight into the baseball without overly noisy footwork, and his swing has natural loft that could produce some power as he matures. His early-career feel for the strike zone is encouraging, too, and heís a potential plus hitter with fringe game power at shortstop.

Gimenez is an above-average runner with a plus arm, giving him the necessary physical components to remain at short. At this age, thatís all that really matters. He also has good first-step quickness and instincts for the position, so even if he fills out quite a bit as he matures, he could still remain at short. There are those who think Gimenez, whose frame is more mature than the typical recent J2 signee, might eventually fill out and require a move either to second or third (you could put an Anthony Rendon comp on the body). If thatís the case, though, then heís probably grown into more power than I currently have projected. The risk/proximity profile here is obviously high but it isnít as lofty as the usual DSL prospect because of the polish, and the upside is a three-plus-win shortstop
