D'Angelo Jiménez (born Dec. 21, 1977) is a former Major League Baseball player. He is an infielder that plays primarily second base. He made his major league debut with the New York Yankees in 1999. He had been considered one of the Yankees top prospects, but in early 2000 Jiménez injured his back in a car crash that required him to miss the 2000 season. [1] His career never recovered.

In 2002, Jiménez appeared in a game as a pitcher for the San Diego Padres. He pitched 1 13 innings, allowing no hits and no runs. On October 23, 2006, Jiménez was released by the Oakland Athletics making him a free agent.

Jiménez started 2007 with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. The Washington Nationals purchased his contract on April 4, 2007. He appeared primarily as a pinch-hitter and defensive replacement, but he was not a successful hitter. On July 19, 2007, Jimenez was called as a pinch hitter and drove in the game-winning single after being in a horrible slump batting .040.[2]

He signed a minor league contract with the St. Louis Cardinals on Dec. 19, 2007, and became a free agent at the end of the season. On April 17, 2009 Jimenez signed a minor league deal with the New York Yankees. Later in the year he played for the Newark Bears of the Atlantic League On June 19, 2010, he signed with the Minnesota Twins and was assigned to the Rochester Red Wings.
