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.

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.

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.

He has actually done a nice job for the most part this season, compiling a 3.92 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 122/42 K/BB ratio over 131 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he takes on the Mets.

Ubaldo Jimenez fired eight shutout innings Saturday in the Orioles' defeat of the Angels.

Jimenez was tremendous, allowing only two hits and a walk against an Anaheim offense that can at times be lethal. The right-hander struck out six over his eight frames. He now stands 9-7 with a respectable 3.79 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. A date with the Athletics is next.

Ubaldo Jimenez served up six runs in 4 2/3 innings, losing to the Tigers on Sunday.

J.D. Martinez put Jimenez behind the eight-ball early, driving a three-run home run in the first inning. The Tigers then rallied for three runs on four two-out hits in the fifth, chasing the right-hander from the game. Overall, he allowed six hits and a walk while striking out only two. Jimenez has been hot-and-cold as of late, currently owning a 4.04 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP and a 110/39 K/BB ratio over 118 innings. He'll attempt to rebound in a road start versus the Angels.

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up only two runs in seven innings of work to earn the win on Tuesday against the Braves.

Freddie Freeman gave the Braves an early 2-0 lead when he drilled a Jimenez offering over the fence in left-center for a two-run home run. From there, the right-hander was leak-free, holding the Braves to four hits and three walks overall while striking out three. He was hammered for seven runs in reach of his previous two starts, skyrocketing his ERA. It now sits at a respectable 3.73 with a 1.33 WHIP and a 108/38 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings. Jimenez will play host to the Tigers in his next start.

Ubaldo Jimenez struggled for a second straight start in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Yankees, yielding seven runs on eight hits in just 2 1/3 innings.

Jimenez was coming off a seven-run debacle against the Tigers. Thursday's outing against the Yankees didn't go any smoother for the pitcher. The Bombers scored four in the first, then tacked on an additional run in the second and two more in the third to drive him off the mound. He compounded his issues by handing out three walks in what was generally just an awful start. These last two outings have jumped his ERA a full run, from 2.81 to 3.81, and he pairs that with a rising WHIP of 1.35. Things are not moving in the right direction at the moment. A home start against the Braves is up next on his schedule as he tries to halt this recent skid.

Ubaldo Jimenez was clobbered in Friday's loss to the Tigers, allowing seven runs on seven hits over his 4 2/3 innings of work.

The veteran right-hander punched out five on the evening and didn't issue a walk. Nearly all of the damage against him came via the long ball, with Victor Martinez, Jose Iglesias and J.D. Martinez all blasting home runs against him. Even with this debacle, he still sports a respectable 3.29 ERA and 1.28 WHIP on the season. Jimenez will look to get back in the win column on Thursday when he takes on the Yankees in New York.

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed seven hits and three walks but no runs over five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

It wasn't pretty, but Jimenez soldiered through the five frames with 110 pitches and exited with a 1-0 lead. Former starter Bud Norris then promptly gave the advantage up by allowing back-to-back home runs. Jimenez will finish the first half with a surprising 2.81 ERA, which is a far cry from last season's 4.81 mark.

Ubaldo Jimenez picked up a tough-luck loss against the White Sox on Friday, going down in defeat despite allowing just one run over seven innings.

Jimenez allowed a solo homer to Jose Abreu in the third inning. And that was it. A rare shutout gem of a start by John Danks was all that prevented Jimenez from picking up his fifth win in a row. Still, he's been rolling and now owns a shiny 2.96 ERA, solid 1.26 WHIP and a 93/29 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings. A Wednesday afternoon road contest with the Twins is up next on his schedule as he tries to return to the win column.
