Jimenez reports to camp following visa issue

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Infielder Luis Jimenez, who was delayed in the Dominican Republic because of a visa issue, reported to camp on Saturday and is ready to compete for a job.

Jimenez, 26, played in 34 games for the Angels in 2013. He didn't play winter ball because of a right shoulder injury he sustained last September.

"We want to make sure his shoulder is locked in. He feels really good right now," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "We want to get him acclimated to third base, but he's going to have to play first and we'll also look at him in the middle infield to see if his versatility is something that can work in his favor."
