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. Aug 24 - 11:11 PM

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.

Ubaldo Jimenez struggled in a no-decision against the Athletics on Friday, surrendering four runs on nine hits over his five frames.

On the plus side, the veteran right-hander did rack up six strikeouts on the evening while walking only two. 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.
Aug 14 - 11:56 PM

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.
Aug 9 - 12:19 AM

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.
Aug 2 - 5:16 PM

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.
Jul 23 - 3:54 PM

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.
Jul 17 - 10:06 PM

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.
Jul 8 - 4:26 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 10:53 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez threw eight shutout innings in the Orioles' 4-0 win over the Indians on Sunday.

Jimenez had it all working, allowing just four hits -- all singles -- while striking out seven on the afternoon. The win was his fourth in a row, moving him to 7-3 with a 3.09 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 89/27 K/BB ratio over 87 1/3 innings this year. A date with the White Sox in Chicago is on deck for Friday.
Jun 28 - 4:03 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez and Chris Tillman will start for the Orioles in Sunday's doubleheader against the Indians.

It had been previously reported that Kevin Gausman would be recalled to start one of the games, but that no longer appears to be the case.
Jun 27 - 3:53 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez struck out eight while allowing three runs over five innings in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

Along with his eight strikeouts, Jimenez yielded six hits and three walks in the short outing. Jimenez has now won three straight decisions and hasn't lost dating back to May 16. The right-hander is now 6-3 with a 3.40 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the year. He'll try to run his win streak further Sunday against the Indians.
Jun 23 - 10:28 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed four runs (three earned) in 6 2/3 innings to the Phillies, but still hung on for the win on Wednesday.

The Phillies scratched out a first-inning run but were otherwise kept off the board until the seventh inning, when Freddy Galvis took Jimenez yard for a three-run home run, reducing a five-run deficit to two runs. The right-hander gave up eight hits overall, walked none, and struck out eight. Jimenez will bring a 3.27 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a 74/24 K/BB ratio over 77 1/3 innings into next week's road start against the Red Sox.
Jun 17 - 10:07 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez yielded three runs in five-plus innings Friday in an 11-3 win over the Yankees.

Jimenez was pulled after allowing a leadoff single in the top of the sixth. All told, he gave up six hits (including a solo homer to Mason Williams), two walks, and a hit-by-pitch while striking out six. He got back in the win column for the first time since May 11 and now sits at 4-3 with a 3.19 ERA on the year. The Orioles have won five straight and are back to an even 30-30 on the year.
