I noticed that Jiminez is a totally different player as a starter than he is as a backup.

he's atrocious as a backup, but he is seemingly competent as a starter.
Yep.  He is an absolute terrible pinch hitter (like 3 for 37 or something) but he does well when he starts.  He hit .360 in AAA this season starting everyday and he has gotten on base in every start he has made up here.  We really don't have a place for him though with Guzman, Belliard, and Lopez manning the middle infield positions especially considering Jimenez has no worth as a pinch hitter.  It would be nice if we could trade him for something decent in return.
