Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez tosses five scoreless innings Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez allowed just four hits in five scoreless innings while striking out three and walking none in Tuesday's 9-2 win over the Pirates.
Manager Buck Showalter said after the outing that Jimenez threw the ball "nice and crisp" and that he had "a lot of counts in his favor and a really good tempo," masnsports.com reports.
"When you have so many hitter-friendly environments, there's nothing ever bad about having good command and working ahead in the count," Showalter said. "I was impressed with his times to the plate. He gave (Ryan) Lavarnway a chance to throw two guys out. In the past, that wouldn't have probably been able to happen. He's always been athletic. Made a couple of good fielding plays off the mound. You could tell he felt good about himself today."
Jimenez opened the spring with an ugly debut but has allowed just two earned runs in nine innings over his previous two starts.
"I feel really good," Jimenez said Tuesday. "I've been able to do what I'm supposed to do in the last two games, and that's command the fastball. I'm ahead in the count and I stay ahead. That's what I did today."
Jimenez owns a 15:6 K:BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings and has yet to allow a home run. He's competing for a spot in the rotation.
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez turns in one of his best outings of spring
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Orioles starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez turned in one of his best outings of the spring on Wednesday against the Twins, allowing only two runs on five hits over four innings of work. He struck out four and walked one, lowering his ERA to 8.74 this spring.
"I felt good about what I did out there. I was able to have good command of the fastball and the breaking ball," Jimenez said, per the Baltimore Sun. "My slider was good. My split was good, too."
When asked by reporters if he envisions Jimenez in the rotation this season, manager Buck Showalter said: "I'm not getting into that subject matter now because I don't have to," per Comcast SportsNet Baltimore.
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez lasts four innings in third spring start
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) Orioles starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez allowed three runs on five hits and no walks in four innings Friday against the Blue Jays. He struck out one.
Jimenez opened the game with a 1-2-3 first inning before running into some trouble in the second. The Blue Jays would score three times in the second to take a 3-2 lead.
However, Jimenez bounced back from the rough inning to post two more scoreless frames before handing the game over to the bullpen. Jimenez, who was making his third start, lowered his ERA from 16.20 to 11.05.
"Felt good," Jimenez said of his outing, per MASNsports.com. "I was able to do what I wanted to today and that was command the fastball. Working on my mechanics. I felt really comfortable out there and could throw the fastball wherever I wanted, inside or outside."
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez adjusts delivery in second start
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez wasn't perfect on Sunday, but things went much more smoothly than in his first start. Jimenez was rocked for six runs in 1.2 innings on Tuesday.
Jimenez watched tape of his first start with coaches and made a mechanical adjustment to his delivery. The fix seemed to work, as Jimenez struck out five of the 11 batters he faced. He went two innings, allowing one run on two hits and three walks.
Jimenez threw 28 pitches in the first inning, pitching from behind to most batters. He settled down, though, and struck out the side in his second inning of work.
“Probably in the last start, I had better command, but today I was able to put in the game what I was working [on] in the bullpen,” Jimenez told the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina. “That’s why I’m happy. I took what I was practicing, I took it into the game, and I didn’t forget it.
Orioles' Jimenez creates some positives out of rough spring debut
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) One look at the box score and you can see Orioles starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez did not have a good spring debut Tuesday against the Tigers. The veteran right-handed pitcher lasted just 1 1/3 innings, allowing six runs (five earned) on two hits and two walks.
Surprisingly, however, Jimenez didn't think his outing was as bad as the numbers indicate.
"I don't want to say I lost control because I had pretty good command of the fastball," he said, per MASNsports.com. "I let a couple slip, two-seam fastballs to hitters, and then I made a mistake with a slider, probably the only one that I threw. I felt good.
"What I was looking for was to command the fastball. I know I walked two guys, but all of the pitches were really close, all of them were close. The only thing I can tell you is I did what I wanted to do and that was commanding the fastball. I threw a lot of fastballs. I only threw three or four breaking balls, mostly fastballs. I wanted to command the fastball and I feel good."
Jimenez did get off to a promising start Tuesday by striking out the first two batters he faced and posting a scoreless first inning. However, things got out of hand quickly as Detroit scored seven times in the second inning.
"It felt good," said Jimenez, who was using the same delivery he switched to in September. "I felt really good. I felt like I was a little bit smoother than before. I was in control of my head and that showed in the first inning."
