TTM Success: D'Angelo Jimenez

Anyone remember D'Angelo Jimenez? He was a decent Yankees prospect in the late 1990s. He made a quick cameo in 1999 for the Yankees and hit .400. He ended up being traded to Pads for relieve Jay Witasick, who predictably sucked after being really good for the Pads. Jimenez bounced around for a buit with a few teams, his best years probably coming in Cincy. He never played in the majors after 2007.

As it turns out, he's still playing independent ball! A few times per season, I check out a lot of team rosters in the various independent leagues, as you can never quite tell who you'll stumble across. Turns out, Jimenez is playing for the Camden Riversharks. He signed the card for me in about two weeks time.
