Jimenez, had an all-glove, no-bat skill set, but his glove didn't really play in the big leagues. In two years with the Twins, he threw up an abysmal .195/.231/.257 slash line at the plate, and ranked as a below-average defender. So speed must have been his game, right? Wrong. 0 for 2 in career stolen base attempts. In fact, Jimenez's most memorable moment as a major league ballplayer was staring at the Metrodome ceiling, waiting for Dave Kingman's pop-up to come down (which it never did).
