BASEBALL: D'Angelo Jimenez

One of this season's early surprises is former Yankee prospect D'Angelo Jimenez. At one time, if you recall, many analysts rated Jimenez higher than Alfonso Soriano, before the car wreck that left Jimenez with a broken neck. He's been frustratingly inconsistent ever since, but this season, leading off for the White Sox (with whom he finished well last year) he's off to his best start, thumping the ball with great authority, with 6 doubles, 4 triples and 3 homers adding up to a .549 slugging percentage. Combine that with good plate patience and you've got quite a player, especially if he can sustain his .297 batting average.
