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.
Jul 4 - 6:56 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez turned in a gem Thursday, allowing just two hits over eight shutout innings in the Orioles' 2-0 win over the Blue Jays.

One start after getting torched by the Rays in an abbreviated outing, Jimenez stymied the Jays offense over his eight innings, giving up only a pair of doubles and a walk while striking out eight. It's been a Jekyll and Hyde act for the 33-year-old this year and for much of the past few years, who owns a 6.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 16 appearances, including 11 starts. Now back in the rotation, Jimenez will next face off against the Brewers in an interleague matchup next Tuesday.

Ubaldo Jimenez was destroyed in Friday's loss to the Rays, giving up nine runs on seven hits over 2 1/3 innings.

Jimenez also issued four walks while striking out just one. The Rays jumped on him right out of the gate, scoring four times in the first, once in the second and adding four more while chasing him in the third. How this guy continues to get chances in the Orioles' rotation is beyond me. He owns a horrifying 7.26 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season. Perhaps this start will be the final straw that leads to Jimenez getting designated for assignment.
Jun 23 - 10:36 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez limited the Cardinals to two runs over seven innings Sunday for his second win.

Jimenez had spent all of June in the Orioles' bullpen, but he traded spots with Alec Asher for Sunday's series finale against the visiting Cardinals and looked pretty sharp in the 8-5 win. Jimenez still isn't a trustworthy fantasy streamer. He stands 2-2 on the season with a 6.25 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.
Jun 18 - 5:04 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez will start on Sunday against the Cardinals.

He and Alec Asher are flip-flopping spots again after Asher replaced Jimenez in the rotation last month. The move has less to do with what Jimenez did since moving to relief -- he held a 5.27 ERA -- than it does with Asher providing more versatility out of the bullpen. Jimenez is capable of a gem on any night, but he's obviously provided mostly clunkers this season with a 6.71 ERA.
Jun 18 - 8:33 AM

Alec Asher is scheduled to start for the Orioles on Sunday instead of Ubaldo Jimenez.

While there has been no official announcement from the team yet, it's safe to assume that the veteran right-hander has been bumped from the O's starting rotation, as Sunday had been his scheduled day to pitch. He owns a cringe-worthy 7.11 ERA and 32/25 K/BB ratio through 42 2/3 innings on the season.
May 26 - 6:32 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was pounded for six runs in four-plus innings by the Twins on Monday.

The Orioles are going to have to do better than this; Jimenez is sporting a 7.11 ERA and a 32/25 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings. This is the last year of his four-year contract, so the Orioles need not be so patient here.
May 22 - 11:16 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was tagged for five runs in five innings and took a loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

Tyler Collins was his nemesis today, whacking two home runs and driving in four of the five runs Jimenez allowed. He surrendered eight hits and three walks while striking out five. Walks and homers have burned Jimenez all year and today was no exception. He has allowed 10 home runs and walked 23 batters in just 38 2/3 innings. His record falls to 1-2 with a 6.52 ERA in seven starts and one relief appearance. He will toe the rubber against the Twins and Astros in a two-start week coming up.
May 17 - 10:44 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well in a no-decision Tuesday, yielding four runs over 7 2/3 frames versus the Nationals in the Orioles' 5-4 extra-innings win.

Jimenez matched Max Scherzer nearly pitch-for-pitch much of the game, entering the eighth inning with the contests knotted up 1-1. Orioles manager Buck Showalter stuck with him after he allowed back-to-back singles, and it initially looked like it might work after he struck out Chris Heisey. However, Adam Lind then popped a pinch-hit, three-run homer. The final line wasn’t great, but this was a nice step in the right direction for Jimenez. He’ll get the Royals in Kansas City on Sunday.
May 9 - 11:49 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez, who was scheduled to start Thursday, worked three scoreless innings of relief Wednesday after Kevin Gausman's ejection.

Richard Bleier initially relieved Gausman in the second and pitched four innings before Jimenez finished up, saving the bullpen for another day. The Orioles have yet to announce who will start in Jimenez's place on Thursday. Presumably, they'll send Bleier down and call up someone from the minors.
May 3 - 10:58 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was pounded for seven runs -- six earned -- in just 3 1/3 frames in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

He struck out four batters but walked three and allowed five hits, two of which left the yard. Both home runs came off the bat of Brett Gardner, one leading off the first inning and a three-run shot in the second. Jimenez has made five starts this season and all but one have been dumpster fires. Amazingly today's game was his first loss despite an ugly 7.43 ERA with 16 strikeouts and 15 walks in 23 innings. He will toe the rubber against the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Thursday.
Apr 29 - 4:49 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was pulled after allowing three earned runs over 3 1/3 innings Monday in the Orioles' win over the Rays.

It could have been a far worse line for Jimenez, but Vidal Nuno pitched the Orioles out of a big jam in the fourth inning and the rest of the Baltimore bullpen posted zeros in the eventual 6-3 victory. Ubaldo was terrific in his last start Wednesday against the Reds, but in typical fashion he couldn't match that with another good outing Monday. The veteran right-hander gave up five walks and three hits before exiting. He carries a 5.95 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this season.
Apr 24 - 10:45 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up just two hits and no runs through 7 2/3 innings to beat the Reds 2-0 on Wednesday.

He held the Reds to two singles and four walks while striking out three. One of the hits was an infield single by catcher Tucker Barnhart that was originally ruled an error on first baseman Chris Davis. Both hits came in the second inning when the Reds loaded the bases but failed to score. Jimenez entered the game with a 10.38 ERA but cut that nearly in half with his masterful effort today. He now has a 5.51 ERA with nine strikeouts and seven walks in 16 1/3 innings. He draws starts against the Red Sox and Yankees next week.
