To define Andrés Giménez's season with the Cleveland Guardians is to speak of a campaign full of successes.
Both on offense and with his glove, this 23-year-old from Barquisimeno finally made good on that trade that sent Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco to the New York Mets in early 2021.
After hard work in the offseason, Giménez is seeing the fruits on the field; so much so that he is batting .303 and ranks as the seventh best bat in the American League.
This production has been a constant in this 2022 and an example of this was his performance on Saturday against the Texas Rangers, a game in which the Venezuelan hit his 17th home run of the year and reached 68 RBIs to serve as the third Venezuelan with at least 15 home runs and 60 RBIs in Cleveland history, after Víctor Martínez achieved it in the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2009 campaigns; and Asdrúbal Cabrera in 2011 and 2012.
With a week to go until the end of the campaign, Giménez will throw the rest with the wood, after accumulating six games in a row with at least one hit and in that period (since 19/09) averaging .417.
