A fifth-round choice of the Astros in 2001, Jimerson debuted as a September call-up during the 2005 season but did not get an at bat. The following year, Jimerson again arrived late in the season and homered on September 4th, 2006 in his first official big league at bat, becoming the third hitter in Astros history to accomplish that feat. He hit .333 in six at bats while with Houston.

Released the following spring, Jimerson also had two partial seasons with Seattle, hitting .667 in three at bats. For his career, he hit a robust .444 with two homers and four steals yet couldn't catch on as a full-time player.
