Ubaldo Jimenez failed to provide much of a spark in Sunday's loss to the White Sox, coughing up six runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.
The White Sox carved up Jimenez for four of the five runs on his line in the fifth inning. It was a disastrous frame in which the veteran right-hander allowed a total of five hits, plunked two batters, uncorked a wild pitch and -- just for good measure -- issued a walk. Thanks to all of that noise, Jimenez's ERA ballooned from 3.91 to 5.20 by the time he exited stage left. He will try to move that ghastly number back into respectability in a home start against the A's next time he toes the rubber. May 1 - 4:57 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed three runs over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Jimenez gave up six hits and three walks in all. He struck out six, but it wasn't enough to keep him from taking his second loss. Through four starts, the 32-year-old owns a 3.91 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 26/11 K/BB ratio over 23 innings. Jimenez will next take on the White Sox on Sunday.
Apr 26 - 10:02 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was inefficient yet effective enough, as he gave up two runs in five eventful innings during Wednesday’s no-decision against the Blue Jays.

Jimenez struck out six against the strikeout-prone Blue Jays, but things were far from clean. He needed 110 pitches to navigate five stressful innings. The right-hander somehow worked around five hits and four walks, while allowing just the pair of runs. His ERA now sits at 3.71 and he remains a serviceable source of strikeouts. It’s just doubtful that the rest of his fantasy profile is worth the trouble.
Apr 20 - 10:40 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez needed 104 pitches to go five innings, allowing six hits, four earned runs and four walks in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Jimenez continues to be a volatile fantasy asset. One start after giving up a single earned run to the Twins over seven innings, he couldn't pitch past the fifth and surrendered four runs to the Yankees on Wednesday. He doesn't have premium fastball velocity anymore, which means he needs to rely on his offspeed stuff and getting guys to chase. That will allow him to accumulate strikeouts, but it's not a recipe for consistency. He now owns a 10.50 K/9 and a 3.75 ERA. That's probably the best-case scenario going forward, so it's all downhill from here, folks.
Apr 13 - 11:51 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez struck out nine while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings in the Orioles' 4-2 win over the Twins on Thursday.

Jimenez scattered eight hits, including a Joe Mauer solo homer, without walking a batter in the start. It was a heck of a way to start the season after posting a 4.11 ERA in 32 starts last year. He doesn't bring it like he once did -- his fastball topped out around 91 mph Thursday -- but he's still savvy enough to get outs with diminished stuff. The right-hander will look to keep rolling Tuesday at the Red Sox.
Apr 7 - 10:20 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez delivered a strong effort in Saturday's victory over the Twins, allowing just one run on four hits over his 3 1/3 innings of work.

The veteran right-hander whiffed two while issuing one free pass. After an absolute abomination of a first outing this spring, Jimenez has bounced back nicely with two quality appearances. He still has the ability to miss bats and should log considerable innings, making him a decent target in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.
Mar 12 - 8:04 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched three scoreless innings with three strikeouts Monday against the Twins.

That's a nice rebound from his initial outing, when he gave up six runs in just one-third of an inning against the Braves. He allowed just one hit and one walk today.
Mar 7 - 4:23 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was tagged for six runs in one-third of an inning by the Braves on Wednesday.

Better that Jimenez gets it out of his system now. He had to compete for a rotation spot last spring, and he ended up turning in a solid rebound campaign for Baltimore. His spot is secure now, though a poor April would put it in jeopardy despite his lofty salary.
Mar 2 - 5:33 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez surrendered three earned runs in six innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Yankees.

Baltimore won it with a late rally. Jimenez struck out seven, but the Yankees drew three walks against him and rattled off five hits -- two of which were doubles. The veteran right-hander will finish up with a 12-10 record, 4.11 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 168/68 K/BB ratio in 184 innings.

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed only an unearned run in six innings and also contributed an RBI single in Tuesday's win against the Nationals.

Jimenez opened the scoring in the second inning, hitting an RBI single to right-center. The Nationals' only run came around in the fourth, helped by a Jonathan Schoop fielding error. All told, the right-hander gave up three hits and walked five while striking out five. Jimenez holds a 4.16 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and a 155/64 K/BB ratio over 171 innings. He'll face the Red Sox in Boston next.

Ubaldo Jimenez got a no-decision in Tuesday's win against the Red Sox, yielding four runs in five innings.

Jimenez issued a bases-loaded walk in the third inning, then relented four runs on four hits in the fifth. He gave up six hits in total with three walks and four strikeouts. The right-hander went into the All-Star break with a 2.81 ERA, but it currently stands at 4.31 with a 1.37 WHIP and a 150/59 K/BB ratio over 165 innings. Jimenez will try to turn things around in a road start against the Rays.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 11:35:00 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez beat the Yankees on Wednesday after allowing three runs in seven innings.

Carlos Beltran accounted for all of the damage, drilling a solo home run in the first inning and adding a two-run single in the third. They were two of only four hits Jimenez gave up while walking none and striking out eight. The right-hander hadn't struck out more than six batters in a start since June 28. Jimenez will bring a 4.22 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and a 146/56 K/BB ratio over 160 innings into next week's home start versus the Red Sox.

Despite matching his season-high by issuing six walks, Ubaldo Jimenez picked up his 10th victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs (one earned) on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Jimenez struck out four on the evening. The 31-year-old hurler had been extremely inconsistent this season, compiling a 4.24 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 138/56 K/BB ratio across 153 innings. He'll look for improved command when he takes the hill against the Yankees in New York on Wednesday.

Ubaldo Jimenez got the loss after serving up seven runs over 5 2/3 innings as the Orioles fell 8-3 to the Royals on Monday.

Jimenez fell apart in the sixth inning, allowing a one-out double followed by a two-out game-tying home run to Mike Moustakas. Things got worse from there, as two singles, a double, and a triple would chase him from the game. Overall, the right-hander allowed 10 hits and a walk while striking out three. It's the fourth time in eight second-half starts Jimenez has given up six-plus runs. He'll bring a 4.26 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP and a 131/47 K/BB ratio over 141 2/3 innings into a road start versus the Rangers next.

Ubaldo Jimenez got a no-decision in Wednesday's win against the Mets, yielding three runs in five innings.

Daniel Murphy greeted Jimenez with a one-out solo homer in the first inning. Wilmer Flores hit an RBI single in the fourth, and Murphy rapped an RBI single in the fifth, putting the Mets up 3-1. They were three of five hits Jimenez allowed along with four walks and six strikeouts. The right-hander went into the All-Star break with a sub-3.00, but has compiled a 7.12 ERA in seven starts since the second half began. On the season overall, Jimenez has a 3.97 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a 128/46 K/BB ratio over 136 innings. He'll face the Royals on the road in his next outing.
