Mets prospect Andres Gimenez has the opportunity to be ‘very special’



Mets prospect Andres Gimenez has the opportunity to be 'very special'

Part 3 of the series analyzes the prospects for the New York Mets

Amed Rosario is 24 years old and entrenched at shortstop. Ronny Mauricio is considered the top prospect of the Mets, even though he is only 19 years old.

Then there is Andres Gimenez, 21, who was ticketed to Triple-A Syracuse before the COVID-19 pandemic closed spring training in March.

It is difficult to know where Gimenez will fit in the future, but an expanded list in an abbreviated season can open a place in the majors for him as a potential reserve for Rosario in brief and even Robinson Cano on second base.

That will be fine with Gimenez, who enjoys time in the main league camp during the spring – especially learning from Cano.

“Playing with him is something I dream of,” Gimenez said this spring. “Robinson Cano is the man I always watch on TV. He is a role model. He always has the right advice for young people who want to learn about games. “

Gimenez said Cano had helped him improve double play.

“I feel really good in defense, and I know getting better in doubles is one more step,” Gimenez said. “He plays with so many great players that he knows what I have to do to get better.”

The same applies to Rosario, who said that he tried to give Gimenez the same help that Cano and Jose Reyes gave when he was a child.

“He is an extraordinary talent,” Rosario said through a translator. “He has extraordinary skills. The energy it brings to the team is different. It’s not easy to do every day, but he does it. I was once in a situation where I was promoted, so I just tried to give him all the knowledge I had learned over the years. “

That goes for Mauricio too.

“I will do whatever I can for them, as others have done for me when I come,” Rosario said. “It doesn’t matter if we play the same position, I want them to be as good as they are. They are very young and very talented. It’s a difficult season, and I think there is much I can give them. ‘

Gimenez, a left-handed winger from Venezuela, needs to reduce his attack, but what stands out most for Luis Rojas, who manages Gimenez at Double-A Binghamton in 2018 and can return this season at some point in Queens, is his strength. .

“Gimenez has a lot of energy,” Rojas said. “It looks like he’s everywhere in a nutshell. He’s getting more comfortable around the bag. And you can see from years ago, he moved his muscles a little and was able to last longer in the field. ‘

The violation needs to be done, but Rojas believes it will happen.

“He’s a very smart kid,” said the manager. “His baseball IQ is high and if he matches it [strength], then we see someone who can be very special. “

And even though he had the chance, he tried to use his time around Cano, Rosario and other major league players.

“I feel stronger with my body and mind than last year,” said Gimenez. “I am pleased to have this opportunity and want to show that I can play at this level.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
