Ubaldo Jimenez was crushed in Friday's loss to the Rays, surrendering six runs on eight hits over his three innings.
The veteran right-hander struck out three and didn't walk a batter in his abbreviated outing. Once again, it was the long ball that did him in, allowing a grand slam to Wilson Ramos in the second inning and a solo shot to Evan Longoria in the third. He'll bring a cringe-inducing 6.81 ERA and 1.59 WHIP into his season finale against these same Rays in Tampa Bay next Sunday. Sep 22 - 10:24 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez struck out 10 hitters over five innings while allowing just one run in a 6-4 victory over the Yankees on Sunday.

This was the best we've seen Ubaldo in quite some time. He gave up just three hits, and he walked just one. Even with the quality start, he still possesses a healthy 6.5 ERA, so it's tough to believe that another effort like this is coming any time soon. He'll get a chance to prove us wrong on Saturday when the Orioles travel to Tampa Bay.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that starting Ubaldo Jimenez on Sunday versus the Yankees is "probably what we're going to do."

It was either going to be Jimenez or Chris Tillman, as both right-handers have been shuttled back-and-forth between the rotation and bullpen lately. Frankly, neither option is appealing for the O's, and Jimenez can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sep 15 - 9:37 AM

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed three earned runs over five innings Monday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Jimenez walked two batters and gave up six hits, including a solo homer to Ryan Goins in the bottom of the fourth inning. The 33-year-old right-hander is now 5-10 on the season with a brutal 6.75 ERA in 134 2/3 innings.
Sep 11 - 9:56 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was pounded for six earned runs over just 2 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Mariners.

All six of those runs crossed the plate in the top of the third inning, with Jimenez yielding four singles, one walk, and a two-run double in that frame. He now has a 6.85 ERA in 27 appearances (22 starts) this season. It's insanity that the Orioles keep trotting him out there, though Baltimore did go on to win Wednesday's game thanks to an eight-run, four-homer offensive outburst.
Aug 30 - 6:35 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was touched up for five runs on nine hits and a walk over five frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Athletics.

Jimenez struck out 11 A’s batters in a start in Oakland earlier this month. He whiffed just four in this one and that’s only one more than the number of home runs he surrendered, as Ryon Healy got him twice and Jed Lowrie also took him deep. Jimenez had mostly pitched pretty well the last month or so, but he’s now put up two straight clunkers. He gets the Mariners next.
Aug 22 - 10:45 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was lit up for eight hits and six runs over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Orioles’ loss to the Mariners.

He struck out two and walked one while throwing 57 of his 94 pitches for strikes. Jimenez began his outing by logging a pair of scoreless innings but unraveled quickly after that, yielding one run in the third, two in the fourth and three in the fifth. The right-hander has now lost four of seven starts since the All-Star break with a 6.03 ERA since the All-Star break. He’ll try to bounce back Monday against the A’s.
Aug 16 - 8:12 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was struck by a comebacker on the right leg and forced to leave Friday's road start against the Athletics early.

Jimenez was solid before departing, allowing three earned runs, six hits and a walk while piling up 11 strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision. He'll likely be re-evaluated on Saturday after taking a hard shot to the right leg. Jimenez wasn't likely to last much longer anyway, as he threw 99 pitches on the evening. If he is healthy enough to start, his next turn in the rotation is Wednesday in Seattle.
Aug 12 - 2:48 AM

Ubaldo Jimenez limited the Tigers to one run over 5 2/3 innings Sunday for his fifth win of the season.

Jimenez gave up nine hits and three walks, but the Tigers couldn't couldn't manage any clutch hits in the series finale at Camden Yards. Jimenez is 5-7 on the season with a 6.31 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. He's lined up to face the Athletics on the road next time out.
Aug 6 - 5:06 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez held the Royals to one run over seven innings Monday in a no-decision.

Baltimore didn't grab the lead for good until Craig Gentry's walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning. Jimenez struck out six batters while holding Kansas City to five hits and two walks. The veteran right-hander is still 4-7 on the year with an ugly 6.56 ERA.
Jul 31 - 9:48 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez took his seventh loss of the season on Wednesday afternoon against the Rays.

Jimenez actually pitched quite well, limiting the Rays to three hits and two walks while striking out nine, but he was out-dueled in this one by Alex Cobb. Ubaldo stands 4-7 on the season with a 6.93 ERA and 1.56 WHIP.
Jul 26 - 3:14 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez delivered yet another miserable outing in Friday's loss to the Astros, surrendering six runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander walked one and struck out five on the night. Again he struggled to keep the ball in the yard, with Yuli Gurriel and Brian McCann each taking him deep in this one. He sports an unfathomable 7.19 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season now and still could get another shot to take on the Rays in Tampa Bay on Wednesday.
Jul 21 - 10:11 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was once again destroyed in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, surrendering six runs on 11 hits over 3 2/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander fanned two and walked one on the night. In the constant battle between Jimenez and Kevin Gausman to see who is the worst starter in the O's rotation, Ubaldo held serve in this one. He'll carry a hefty 7.01 ERA and 1.58 WHIP into a brutal matchup against the Astros on Friday.
Jul 16 - 4:46 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez yielded four earned runs over five innings but got a win Sunday versus the Twins.

Jimenez walked four batters and gave up four hits, but the Orioles' offense backed him with 11 runs on 15 hits in the afternoon victory at Target Field. The veteran right-hander finishes the first half with a 6.67 ERA.
Jul 9 - 5:28 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez served up three homers and allowed five runs across five frames in Tuesday’s loss to the Brewers.

Jimenez didn’t have any trouble getting swings and misses with seven punchouts, but he surrendered six hits and walked three, giving up a two-run homer and a couple solo shots. The outing comes after Jimenez tossed eight shutout innings and two starts after he gave up nine runs. In other words, he’s been inconsistent as always. He’ll finish out the first half on Sunday in Minnesota.
