Ubaldo Jimenez was charged with two unearned runs and a loss after working five-plus innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Jimenez shut the Red Sox out for five innings before walking David Ortiz and giving up a single to Mookie Betts to start the sixth. The Orioles lifted him and what followed was a five-run inning, with all of the runs termed unearned following a Chris Davis error. Jimenez had pitched a total of 23 innings in his previous three starts this month, but the Red Sox made him throw 105 pitches to get his 15 outs. The Orioles still won't find any fault with his performance. Sep 22 - 12:08 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated Monday that he's leaning toward starting Ubaldo Jimenez over Yovani Gallardo on Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Gallardo was rocked for six runs over 3 1/3 innings in his most recent start against the Rays last week, so Showalter prefers Jimenez for the showdown against their division rival. Jimenez has posted a 3.28 ERA and 25/6 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings over his last five starts.
Sep 19 - 4:47 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez rebounded after a shaky start on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits over his seven innings of work in a no-decision against the Rays.

The veteran right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the night and didn't walk a batter. The Rays jumped on him early in this one, with a two-run homer from Evan Longoria in the first and another from Richie Shaffer in the second inning, but Jimenez settled in beautifully afterwards and gave his team seven strong innings. His strong performances since rejoining the rotation continue to defy logic and he'll draw a very difficult matchup his next time out against the Red Sox.
Sep 16 - 10:17 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez delivered another strong start in Saturday's victory over the Tigers, allowing two runs on four hits over seven frames.

Jimenez struck out four and walked three on the night. He has been outstanding since rejoining the O's rotation when Chris Tillman went down and should be owned and started in all fantasy leagues until he comes back to Earth. His next assignment comes on Friday against the Rays.
Sep 11 - 1:04 AM

Ubaldo Jimenez threw his first complete game since 2011 on Monday afternoon against the Rays.

It was also the first complete game for an Orioles pitcher since Miguel Gonzalez in September 2014. Jimenez yielded just one walk and two hits over his nine frames, though one of those hits was a Logan Morrison three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning. Ubaldo retired 25 of the last 26 batters he faced. He's somehow strung together three straight quality starts.
Sep 5 - 4:09 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez held the Blue Jays to three runs over 6 2/3 innings in taking a no-decision in Tuesday's 5-3 win.

The O's tried to get Jimenez through seven innings, which wound up backfiring when Michael Saunders hit a game-tying two-run homer. Luckily, Matt Wieters put them back on top for good the next frame. Jimenez has pitched well in back-to-back starts since re-entering the rotation, so he'll get another shot in Tampa early next week.
Aug 30 - 10:08 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez limited the Nationals to one run over six innings but took the loss Thursday.

Jimenez gave up just five hits without issuing a walk, but he and his Orioles teammates were just outclassed by Nats starter Max Scherzer. It was an unfortunate result for the right-hander, who was making a start in place of the injured Chris Tillman. He fell to 5-11 with the loss, now owning a 6.62 ERA and 1.85 WHIP on the year. The right-hander will likely get another turn given Thursday's performance, likely Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Aug 25 - 10:26 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez will make a spot start for the Orioles on Thursday versus the Nationals.

He'll be filling in for Chris Tillman, who is headed to the 15-day disabled list with shoulder discomfort. Jimenez owns a 6.94 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 18 starts and four relief appearances this season with Baltimore and shouldn't be trusted as a fantasy option against Washington.
Aug 23 - 11:32 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez struck out eight while allowing just one run Thursday against the Twins.

Jimenez gave up five hits and walked three, but he managed to limit the damage for most of the evening. Unfortunately for Jimenez, the O's bullpen couldn't keep his lead, saddling him with a no-decision. It was nonetheless a promising turn for the 32-year-old, who had been kept on the sidelines -- and rumored to be offered in trade negotiations -- since the All-Star break. If Jimenez is given another start, it will likely come Wednesday against the Rangers.
Jul 28 - 10:35 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez will make a spot start for the Orioles on Thursday against the Twins.

Jimenez hasn't pitched since July 8 and he's sitting on a 7.38 ERA. He is obviously a poor fantasy streaming option, even against the light-hitting Minnesota lineup.
Jul 26 - 10:09 PM

Orioles activated RHP Ubaldo Jimenez from the paternity leave list.

Jimenez was away from the O's for three days as his wife gave birth. He could start Thursday against the Twins, but if that doesn't happen it's back to long relief.
Jul 26 - 4:05 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez is expected to rejoin the Orioles on Tuesday.

Jimenez has been away on paternity leave since Saturday. Despite a lengthy absence, he's considered an option to start Thursday against the Twins.
Jul 25 - 4:34 PM

Orioles placed RHP Ubaldo Jimenez on the paternity leave list.

Jimenez was excused from the Orioles on Saturday with his wife going into labor. He'll be gone for 3-7 days. The right-hander hasn't pitched since July 8 anyway.
Jul 23 - 6:43 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez has been excused from the Orioles with his wife going into labor.

Jimenez could be placed on the paternity leave list if his absence lasts longer than a day or two. The right-hander hasn't appeared in a game for the O's since July 8, when he yielded five earned runs in 1 1/3 innings.
Jul 23 - 4:27 PM

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that the Orioles have discussed a potential trade that would send Ubaldo Jimenez and a prospect to the Padres for Melvin Upton.

Jimenez would only be included in any deal to help offset the money remaining on Upton's contract, as his actual value is very limited. The veteran right-hander is owed roughly $18 million through next season while Upton is owed more than $22 million over the same time frame.
