Good points all around coop, and that's why I think Jimenez is more than worth a look. But I will also point out that Klesko's played with hundreds of players from Latin America, and Jimenez was the one guy he pegged as the 'laziest in 10 years.'

Maybe Klesko didn't think he spent enough time in the weight room or something frivolous like that.
All I'm saying is that if D-Lo dogs it, we've been warned.
