Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez much improved at holding runners


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter praised the improvement of pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez at holding runners on base, which has helped contribute to the starter's excellent numbers at the beginning of the season, MASNSports.com reports.

"We kind of miss what Ubaldo has done with runners," Showalter said. "It used to be a real challenge for him. The thought that Mike Trout would get thrown out with Ubaldo on the mound is pretty impressive. That wouldn't have happened. I don't care if it's a pitchout or not a pitchout, usually that's a stolen base. He's done a really good job with baserunners this year. So don't tell me it can't be done."

Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez takes tough loss on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

"It's tough, too," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASNSports.com. "Ubaldo in the seventh was unfortunate. You can't guide balls and make them be hit at a certain tempo. We made some good pitches that they were able to put in a place we couldn't defend in the infield. That will turn. We'll have some work our way, too. Getting some real hard bounces out of that area around home plate, which we haven't been getting in the past.

Jimenez (3-3), who was originally scheduled to pitch on Sunday, was moved up to Saturday because teammate Bud Norris was scratched with the flu. Jimenez now sports a very fine 2.43 ERA in his first seven starts. He is scheduled to pitch next on Friday in Miami.

Bautisa, who will be available to pinch hit, has also struggled against Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez (career 2 for 29).

Bautista has a sore shoulder and has not played in right since April 21, serving as the designated hitter for the last 12 of 13 games.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez lasts four innings in loss vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez took the loss Wednesday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and two walks in just four innings while striking out one in his team's 5-1 defeat against the Mets.

Jimenez (2-2) made it through the first inning without issue before giving up a run on a single with two men on in the second inning, another on a solo home run in the third and one more on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. He was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the top of the fifth inning, ending his night.

Jimenez, who hasn't allowed an earned run in three of his five outings, owns a 2.36 ERA and 23:10 K:BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. His next start should come Monday against the Blue Jays at home.


Orioles RHP Ubaldo Jiminez continues bounce-back in win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez continued Wednesday to put in an early bid for Comeback Player of the Year. He also showed he can thrive in a vacuum.

Jimenez lowered his ERA to a sparkling 1.59 and improved his record to 2-1 by not allowing an earned run in seven innings of a rout against the White Sox at empty Camden Yards. Most impressively for a pitcher who has struggled with his control over the years, he walked just one and fanned six.

The veteran proved as well that he could bounce back from a poor outing. He gave up four runs in five innings against Toronto in his last start.

Jimenez faced the minimum number of batters through four innings before an error led to two unearned runs in the fifth. He then faced just six hitters in shutting Chicago down in the sixth and seventh.

He will try to keep the good times rolling Monday against the host Mets.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The game was originally expected to be played as scheduled after the Orioles discussed the situation in the city, but Baltimore City Police decided it best to put off the game until a later date.

White Sox starter Hector Noesi will have their starts pushed back to a later date. Noesi is currently 0-2 with a 5.23 ERA in 10 1/3 innings. Jeff Samardzija would draw the start for Chicago if the two teams are able to play Tuesday and Monday's scheduled starter Ubaldo Jimenez for Baltimore.


Orioles P Ubaldo Jimenez surrenders two homers in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez gave up four earned runs in Wednesday night's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays. 

Jimenez gave up two runs apiece in the fourth and fifth innings. Jimenez allowed three hits total in the first three innings before surrendering three hits and three walks in the final two innings he pitched in. 

Jimenez struck out six batters but was rocked for two home runs, one to Justin Smoak and one to Devon Travis. He said after the game that he'd like to have both home-run pitches back, MLB.com reports.

"Especially the one to Travis," Jimenez, who threw 102 pitches, said. "I was supposed to throw a splitter down, and I left it right down the middle. The one to Smoak, I don't think it was that bad. At little bit up in the zone, but it was away. He just made a good swing."

Jimenez is now 1-1 for the season with an ERA of 2.30. His next projected start is on April 27 against the White Sox.
