HOW ACQUIRED: Traded from the LA Galaxy on January 14, 2014.
A versatile player along either flank, Jimenez' utility is his best asset. Often deployed as a winger for the Galaxy, he seamlessly transitioned to an outside back role under the aggressive style of former Crew coach Gregg Berhalter. He's been an asset to the Crew since arriving in Columbus in 2014, and look for that trend to continue in 2019.
COLLEGE: At Cal from 2006-2010, the former Golden Bear was a three-time First Team All-Pac 10 (2008-2010) and finished second on Cal’s all-time assist list in program history (28).
NOTES: 34th overall pick in 2011 MLS SuperDraft...member of 2011 and 2012 MLS Cup-winning LA Galaxy teams.
