Player of the Month, April: Jorge Jimenez


After a red-hot start to the 2009 season that just hasn't cooled off, Portland Sea Dogs third baseman Jorge Jimenez has been named the SoxProspects.com Player of the Month for April. The 24-year-old Jimenez posted a .391/.432/.565 line with 4 doubles, a triple, 2 home runs and a team-leading 17 RBI while playing in all 18 Portland games in April. He hit .440/.481/.720 with runners in scoring position, and his .391 batting average led all Eastern League hitters in the season's opening stanza. Originally a 15th round draft choice by the Red Sox in 2006, Jimenez also won Eastern League Player of the Week honors for April 8-19, 2009 after being named a California League All Star last season, when he hit .352/.421/.479 for Lancaster.
