Angels | Luis Jimenez developing into utility player

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Luis Jimenez has impressed in the absence of 3B Alberto Callaspo (calf) and has impressed scouts. "He has been a good spark for them," one scout says. "I see him as an eventual super-utility type who can play all over. We will see how he reacts after the advance guys get a look at him see if he can respond after pitchers adjust for the first time."

Fantasy Tip: Jimenez should be owned in deeper AL leagues with Callaspo on the disabled list, and it's looking quite possible that Jimenez could stick around in a utility role when Callaspo comes back. Jimenez possesses nice power to all fields, but his batting average will drop in a larger sample size.
