Brian Matusz in, Ubaldo Jimenez out of Orioles ALCS roster
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/10/14) Brian Matusz has replaced disappointing fellow right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez on the Orioles roster for the American League Championship Series, per MLB.com
Matusz performed more effectively than Jimenez in the regular season. He compiled a 2-3 record and 3.48 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 51 2/3 innings. Jimenez struggled greatly with his control in losing his rotation spot and earning a trip to the minors. He finished 6-9 with a 4.81 ERA and 77 walks in 125 1/3 innings.

Ubaldo Jimenez allows two runs in win vs. Yankees
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/23/14) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez picked up a win Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on three hits and three walks in five-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 victory over the Yankees.
Jimenez (6-9) gave up only a run on a fourth-inning groundout and was removed after the first two batters in the sixth inning reached base safely, with one coming around to score. He's won both of his starts since being moved to the bullpen in August, but he isn't scheduled to make another. Jimenez owns a 4.85 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 113:77 K:BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings.
Orioles shuffle starting rotation
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/22/14) The Orioles will start right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez at the Yankees on Tuesday, allowing them to stick to their plan of giving each of their starting pitchers an extra day of rest heading into the postseason.
"There's a fine line between not having enough rest and having too much rest, so we're trying to have every guy that pitches get one extra day before the start," manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun. “We're going to try to give everybody, so you're not too far away from the ball but you get a little extra rest. They all seem to respond well to that."
While left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Monday at the Yankees, right-hander Chris Tillman won't start again until Friday at Toronto. Miguel Gonzalez will start the team's final game Sunday at Toronto.
As of now, Bud Norris and Kevin Gausman are scheduled to start Wednesday's and Thursday's games at the Yankees, but that could change. Jimenez could end up making a second start before season's end.
Ubaldo Jimenez strikes out six in win vs. Blue Jays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez earned a win Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and four walks in five innings while striking out six as the Orioles clinched the AL East crown with a 8-2 victory over the Blue Jays.
Jimenez (5-9) was making a spot start after moving to the bullpen in August, and he delivered five solid innings after the team jumped ahead with a three-run home run in the first inning. Jimenez owns a 4.90 ERA and 110:74 K:BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings. The Orioles take home the team's first division title since 1997 with the win.
|When the Indians acquired Ubaldo Jimenez from the Rockies before the July 2011 trade deadline, they gave up two pitching prospects who have yet to pan out. Two full years after the deal, it wasn't clear that Jimenez was worth the cost. Over the last two months of the 2013 season, Jimenez finally started paying dividends, scorching opponents with 94 strikeouts over his final 78 1/3 innings with a 1.72 ERA. In his best years in Colorado, Jimenez had an effective slider, and in the latter weeks of 2013, he was getting more movement on that pitch. If we could trust a two-month turnaround, Jimenez just might be worth drafting among the top 20 starting pitchers, but then again, that list consists of pitchers who have been far more consistent. Plus, he's in a new environment after signing with the Orioles this offseason, so he may fall back into bad habits. Because of his volatility, owners may be able to treat Jimenez as a top 40 starter on Draft Day, and he has the potential to be one of this year's biggest bargains.
