After finishing a career best #3 at the end of the 2011-2012 season, Jose had a minor slip to the #4 position at the end of last year. At twenty-three he is still one of the young guns on tour with a long career ahead of him. He is still a few years from his prime, so we probably have not yet seen his best. Jose has been very reliable, making every tier one stop the last three seasons. Last season had him in one final, five semifinals, four quarterfinals, and two round of sixteen exits. That was almost a mirror image of the prior season aside from swapping a semifinal and round of sixteen finish and the fact that he won the pro stop in an epics finals appearance in the 2011-2012 season.
Jose has one career win against Kane and Rocky, and almost fifty-fifty with the slight edge over Beltran, the three guys ahead of him in the standings. However, the record against Beltran is a little deceiving as most of Beltran’s wins came during their first matches, and Jose won the last three times they played. Look for Jose to hold onto a number four spot this season. If he can shed any early round exits and make half of the semifinals this season, look for him to battle Beltran for the number three spot in the standings, but barring injury to the top two players on tour that’s probably as far as he goes.
