Jimerson, a CF out of UM a few years ago, isn't on an MLB roster, that I can tell. He's got a 333 career avg in 8 games with 1hr. At the U he had speed and power in the lead off spot, and could hit okay for average. But robbed some big HR's and covers a lot of ground. Is he a possibility for CF if De Aza fails or Borchard can't hit enough to stay on the team?

let's wait until de aza fails. De Aza has speed, hits for an okay average, and covers a lot of ground, too.

"Chewy" signed with the Astros in 2001, after being name MVP in the 2001 College World Series. He homered at least twice in the CWS, and made some amazing fielding plays in Omaha.

He was a late bloomer at UM, riding the bench until well into his Senior year. Then he broke out and led UM to the National Championship in '01. He is very smart, with his BS in Computer Science. He was the keynote speaker at this year's UM baseball First Pitch banquet, and keeps in touch with Jim Morris as well as other UM boosters. He was raised by his sister in Oakland CA.

Since turning pro, he has bounced between A and AA in the Astros org, often a teammate of fellow UM grad Mike Rodriguez. He has always had MLB calibre defense, but struck out historically 1/3 of the time, which is way too much. His average was just OK (.230-.270) in the minors. He made his MLB debut (on defense) against the Marlins late in 2005, and homered in his first MLB at bat in September 2006.

Word has it the Astros called him in to send him down about a week ago, and he balked at going back to AA. He is 27, and that's ancient for a AA player. Anyway, he asked for his release so he could pursue another roster spot in the show.

He's a helluva nice guy, and I wish him well where-ever he ends up.
