Mariners Prospect No. 11: Guillermo Pimentel

Guillermo Pimentel, LF, Pulaski Mariners (Rookie, 20.5 years old on average in 2011)

6-1, 180 lbs, 19 years old

Bats: Left, Throws: Left

Acquired: International Signing 2009

ETA: 2015

Pimentel was by far the highest-profile international signing of the Mariners in 2009. He was considered by some to be the most advanced hitter of all international prospects. After two seasons in rookie ball, Pimentel has really only shown that he’s got a long ways to go before he major league ready. The power seems to be there, He’s hit 17 home runs and posted a .181 ISO in 458 plate appearances. There is still a lot of promise in Pimentel’s bat, but there is some worry that he won’t be able to stick in the outfield. Pimentel may have the most potential in his bat of any prospect in the farm system, but he’s certainly a volatile prospect.

Potential (of 40): 36

Probability of Success (of 30):11

Positional value (of 20): 7

Character (of 10): 10

OVERALL: 64

    Pimentel is interesting to me since he was the MVP of the AZL but he’s still young and far from a finished project.  He deserves his ranking based on his potential.

    I love a good OBP just as much as the next SABR guy. However, with our O being what it has been for the past few years, I’ll take a SLG-heavy OPS over no OPS at all.
