Ubaldo Jimenez and Miguel Gonzalez could be flipped in the Orioles' starting rotation this week.
This means that Gonzalez would start Thursday against the Nationals and Jimenez would pitch Friday against the Yankees. It's possible that Gonzalez could be sent to Triple-A after Thursday's game so the Orioles can add a reliever. Jul 7 - 5:58 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez yielded just an unearned run over eight innings in a victory over the Rangers on Monday.

Jimenez gave up four hits, walked one and struck out seven in his first win since May 8 and third overall in 17 starts this season. He's still walked at least one batter every outing this year, and that poor command has prevented him from working deep into games. Still, this makes five starts out of his last seven in which he's allowed just one or two runs.
Jun 30 - 10:18 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez got a no-decision, allowing four runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Orioles defeated the White Sox 5-4 in 12 innings on Wednesday.

Jimenez was in line for a league-leading ninth loss, but Nelson Cruz bailed him out in the eighth inning with a game-tying grand slam. Jimenez, who had put together four solid outings out of his last five trips to the hill, was shaky, allowing eight hits and two walks while striking out two. He'll take a 4.70 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, and a 77/53 K/BB ratio into next week's home start against the Rangers.
Jun 26 - 12:34 AM

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up one earned run in 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.

Jimenez held the Yankees to one run in six innings, but it wasn't easy. He loaded the bases three times in six innings. The Yankees were unable to capitalize on these chances, though, allowing Jimenez off the hook repeatedly. He walked a season-high six batters and has issued 16 free-passes over his last three starts. Jimenez can't be trusted in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 20 - 11:05 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up two runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Jimenez lived dangerously in this one, giving up three hits and five walks, but the only damage against him was a two-run homer by Juan Francisco in the second inning. Still, it was enough to put him on the losing side. The high-priced right-hander fell to 2-8 with the loss and owns a disappointing 4.86 ERA and 68/45 K/BB ratio through 76 innings this season. He'll get the Rays next on the road.
Jun 13 - 10:31 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was done in by walks and big hits against the A's on Sunday, allowing six runs in 2 1/3 innings of work in the loss.

Jimenez' control continues to be a major problem, as he walked five on the day. He only allowed two hits before being removed, but they both went for extra bases -- a two-run double by John Jaso, and a grand slam by Brandon Moss. That was it for the right-hander. He's now 2-7 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.53 WHIP, and he'll face one of the league's best offenses in the Blue Jays on Friday.
Jun 8 - 5:41 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez held the Rangers to one run on four hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision on Tuesday.

On the downside, Jimenez also issued four free passes on the evening, an issue that's plagued the right-hander all year. He didn't last long enough to pick up his third win, but he was able to lower his ERA to 4.39 in the no-decision. He's now turned in two pretty good starts in a row, but he's so inconsistent that it's tough to trust him outside of AL-only leagues right now. He'll try to keep rolling Sunday against the A's.
Jun 3 - 11:24 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez got the no-decision, allowing one run over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Jimenez bounced back from a pair of rough outings, allowing only three hits and walking three while striking out eight. The right-hander has been hit-or-miss so far, with his success very much tied to his control. Jimenez owns a 4.65 ERA and a 59/31 K/BB ratio in 62 innings. He'll try for his third win in his next start against the Rangers on the road.
May 29 - 11:22 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was hit hard in a losing effort against his former team on Saturday, allowing five runs on four hits in just four-plus innings of work.

Jimenez issued five free passes and struck out three on the abbreviated afternoon. He cruised through the first four innings virtually unscathed, but the train came off the tracks in the fifth inning where the first five hitters reached and Jimenez was chased without recording an out. Now 2-6 on the season, he’ll carry a disappointing 4.98 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into Thursday’s start against the Astros in Houston.
May 24 - 3:43 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez yielded five runs in five innings Sunday in a loss to the Royals.

After three straight strong outings to begin the month, Jimenez tied his season high for runs allowed in this one. Still, he did end the game with seven strikeouts and one walk, so this wasn't a complete return to his poor form of April. He'll get his former team, the struggling Cleveland Indians, in his next start.
May 18 - 5:40 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well enough for the win but got a no-decision in Tuesday's start, shutting the Tigers out over seven innings, but the Orioles lost 4-1.

Jimenez turned in his second-finest outing of the season, limiting the Tigers to three hits and two walks while striking out seven. Jimenez's shot at his third win was squelched when Tommy Hunter blew the save in the ninth inning. Over his last three starts since the month of May began, Jimenez has allowed one run in 19 2/3 innings with a 20/5 K/BB ratio. He'll look to keep it rolling against the Royals on the road in his next start.
May 13 - 10:45 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez improved to 2-4, holding the Rays to one run in 5 1/3 innings as the Orioles went on to win 3-1 on Thursday.

That makes two solid starts in a row for Jimenez, though he tossed 117 pitches without escaping the sixth inning. Against the Rays, the right-hander allowed seven hits, walked two, and struck out three. Paired with last Friday's start, Jimenez has allowed just one run in 14 2/3 innings in May, perhaps a sign that change is coming following a tough April. He'll take his 4.72 ERA into next week's start against the Tigers at home.
May 8 - 11:03 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez enjoyed his best outing with the Orioles on Friday night against the Twins, striking out 10 batters over 7 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory.

Now this is what the Orioles had in mind when they gave him a four-year, $50 million contract over the winter. Jimenez held the Twins to just three hits and one walk. He had walked at least two batters and allowed at least three earned runs in each of his previous five starts with Baltimore, so it was nice to see. He'll attempt to build on this one when he takes on the Rays in Tampa Bay next week.
May 2 - 10:57 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched decently in Friday’s loss to the Royals, giving up four runs on six hits in his six-plus innings of work.

The veteran right-hander also walked four while striking out three on the evening. The Royals scratched out a pair of runs in the first inning, then Jimenez was able to keep them off the board until the seventh when he was chased from the game. Now 0-4 on the season, he’ll look to improve upon his unsightly 6.59 ERA and 1.83 WHIP when he takes on the Twins in Minnesota on Friday.
Apr 25 - 10:41 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched decently in a no-decision on Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Red Sox.

Jimenez also issued three free passes while punching out five. He cruised through the first five innings virtually unscathed, but a single, walk and three-run homer by Jonny Gomes in the fifth chased him from the game. Still looking for his first victory of the season, he’ll carry a 6.75 ERA and 1.88 WHIP into Friday’s matchup against the Royals in Baltimore.
