Jimenez tossed a two-inning simulated game Friday. As long as he feels good Saturday, he'll begin a rehab assignment. Manager Buck Showalter said Jimenez will likely need two starts before he's ready to return to the majors. Jimenez is working his way back from an ankle injury, but said it didn't give him any issues Friday. "I didn’t have any problems with my ankle," Jimenez said. "I didn’t have to think about it."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Depending on how he responded, he could start a rehab assignment as soon as Wednesday.

"It's all predicated on today, so we'll see," manager Buck Showalter said. "Watching him move around is not real encouraging, but I don't know if he's just protecting it."

Orioles lay out rotation vs. Yankees


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) The Orioles' rainout Wednesday will allow the team to shuffle the rotation for an upcoming weekend series against the Yankees.

Orioles push rotation back after rainout


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Orioles have moved everyone in the rotation back a game after Tuesday's contest against the Nationals was rained out.

Bud Norris was initially scheduled to pitch Tuesday after being activated from the disabled list earlier in the day, but he'll take the mound Wednesday instead. That pushes Wei-Yin Chen to Thursday and Ubaldo Jimenez to Friday.

Ubaldo Jimenez walks six in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez struggled in a no-decision Saturday, giving up four earned runs on five hits and six walks in just 3 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 7-4 win over the Red Sox in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

Jimenez manged to get his control in check during his last two starts (three walks) after issuing 16 walks in his previous three starts combined, but he was wild again Saturday. After the pitcher gave up five walks in the first three scoreless innings, the Red Sox scored all four runs in the fourth inning of Game 2 Saturday. Jimenez owns a 4.52 ERA and 88:60 K:BB ratio in 99 2/3 innings. The team has yet to align the rotation fully next week, but Jimenez should face either the Nationals Thursday or the Yankees Friday.


Ubaldo Jimenez strikes out seven in win vs. Rangers Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez shined in a win Monday, giving up just an unearned run on four hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out seven in his team's 7-1 victory over the Rangers.

Jimenez (3-8) gave up the run on a throwing error in the fifth inning but was able to ride a four-homer game from the offense to his first win since May 8. He owns a 4.31 ERA and 84:54 K:BB ratio in 96 innings. Jimenez is set to face the Red Sox Saturday.


Ubaldo Jimenez surrenders four runs vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez didn't factor into Wednesday's decision after giving up four earned runs on eight hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings and striking out six in his team's 5-4, 12-inning win over the White Sox.

Jimenez surrendered a solo home run in the fourth inning and another run in the fifth, but he entered the seventh inning in line for a quality start before being pulled after giving up a walk and three straight hits to begin the seventh (one runner was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double). Jimenez owns a 4.70 ERA and 77:53 K:BB ratio in 88 innings. He's slated to face the Rangers Tuesday.


Ubaldo Jimenez effectively wild in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez had to work his way out of a number of self-inflicted jams Friday, in a 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

Jimenez pitched into the sixth inning while allowing just one run, despite allowing 12 runners to reach base. He allowed six hits and six walks, while striking out just three batters and throwing 53 of 104 pitches for strikes, but left in line for a win before the bullpen blew his lead.

Jimenez danced his way out of trouble, but his winless streak still reached eight starts in the no-decision. He is 2-8 with a 4.63 ERA heading into next Friday's start against the Rays.


Ubaldo Jimenez receiving extra time to work on mechanics


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Orioles embattled right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will be making his Friday start at Yankee Stadium on six days rest - and that could be a good thing. He pitched seven shutout innings in Minnesota on May 2 the last time he had that long between starts.

Another reason it could help is that it has given pitching coach Dave Wallace more time to straighten out a complex delivery that has given him extensive problems in recent years. Jimenez might adjust where he plants his foot on the rubber.

Buck Showalter expressed to MASNsports.com his hope that the extra work can turn Jimenez around. Jimenez has just two quality starts in his last six and has yielded 20 earned runs in 29 innings during that stretch. The offseason free agent acquisition is 2-8 with a 4.86 ERA on the season and has walked 45 in 76 innings.


Ubaldo Jimenez looks sharp in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez bounced back with a quality start Friday night against the Blue Jays, but was outdueled by Drew Hutchison, dropping to 2-8 on the year. The right-hander permitted two runs on three hits and a season-high five walks while striking out two in six innings of a 4-0 defeat.

Over his last four starts covering 20 innings, Jimenez has allowed 10 earned runs. He owns a 4.86 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP through 14 starts (76 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at Tampa Bay.

Ubaldo Jimenez looking like a lost cause


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) On Monday's Fantasy Baseball Today, Adam Aizer, Al Melchior and I took turns selecting a player whose weekend performance discouraged us the most. Al picked Ubaldo Jimenez before I had the chance, but I agree with his reasoning entirely.

There just isn't enough good to make up for all the bad.

We've seen how dominant Jimenez can be when he consistently throws strikes. In the second half last year, he compiled a 1.82 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings in 13 starts. But for most of his career since his near Cy Young season in 2010, he's looked about like he's looked this season -- wildly inconsistent with only brief flashes of potential.

He looked like he might be turning the corner during a four-start stretch in May in which he had 27 strikeouts to six walks in 24 2/3 innings, but in four starts since, he has 18 strikeouts to 17 walks in 18 innings.

If he can regress that quickly and severely after four strong starts, how many starts will he have to string together before you can trust him again. Six? Eight? The season might end before that happens.

Meanwhile, keeping him around only tempts you to start him and suffer more damage to your ERA and WHIP. I don't see how it's worth it anymore.


Ubaldo Jimenez gets rocked in loss to A's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez got rocked on Sunday against the Athletics, coughing up six runs on two hits and five walks while striking out two over 2 1/3 innings of an 11-1 defeat.

Jimenez dropped to 2-7 on the year, with a 5.01 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP through 13 starts (70 innings). He has allowed five-plus earned runs three of his last five starts. He will look to get back on track Friday at home against Toronto.

Ubaldo Jimenez surrenders one run in no-decision Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez didn't factor into Tuesday's decision after giving up one earned run on four hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 8-3 win over the Rangers.

Jimenez left the game with a 2-1 lead, but the Rangers evened the score in the seventh inning before the Baltimore offense exploded for six runs in the eighth. Despite continuing to struggle with control issues, he has given up just one earned run in two straight starts. Jimenez owns a 4.39 ERA and 64:35 K:BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the A's Sunday.


Ubaldo Jimenez takes no-decision despite quality start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez got back on track Thursday with a quality start, in his team's 3-1 loss to the Astros in Houston.

Jimenez allowed a run to score on a wild pitch in the second inning for his only blemish. He pitched six innings and yielded one run on three hits, with three walks and eight strikeouts in a no-decision. Of his 112 pitches, 65 were strikes.

Jimenez has not won a decision since May 8 against Tampa Bay. He owns a 4.65 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP in 11 starts (62 innings). He will look to get back in the win column Wednesday at Texas.

Ubaldo Jimenez falls apart in fifth for second straight start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) The inconsistency that has plagued Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez for several years came back to haunt him Saturday against Cleveland.

For the second straight start, he was cruising for four innings before a collapse, though his pitch count would have precluded from lasting far beyond that. Jimenez gave up two walks and three singles to open the fifth before he was removed. He finished having thrown 99 pitches in four innings with five earned runs, five hits and five walks.

Jimenez, whose ERA has risen from 4.02 to 4.98 over the last two starts, will try to lower it Thursday in Houston.


Ubaldo Jimenez's last start not really so bad


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/2014) I realize it's of little consolation to those owners who suffered through his 9.00 ERA and 1.80 WHIP, not to mention him taking the loss, but Ubaldo Jimenez actually showed continued progress in his start Sunday at Kansas City.

He issued just one walk while recording seven strikeouts in five innings, which gives him just six walks to 27 strikeouts in 24 2/3 innings over his last four starts. After a bumpy start to the season, he continues to exhibit swing-and-miss stuff with the kind of control that we know has led to Cy Young-caliber numbers for him in the past, including the second half last year.

So what went wrong Sunday? To hear him and manager Buck Showalter tell it, he was simply unlucky. He kept the ball on the ground as usual, yielding an even lower percentage of line drives than in his previous two starts, but a disproportionate number of them found holes.

"Even though I was making good pitches, they found a way to hit the ball hard. I felt really good and I made a lot of good pitches," Jimenez said. "They had a good approach. I threw a lot of sinkers down and they found the hole every time."

Don't lose heart, Jimenez owners. If his last four starts, including Sunday's, are any indication, better times are ahead.


Ubaldo Jimenez takes step back Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez (2-5) took a step back on Sunday and was pegged with the loss against the Royals. He was charged with five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven in only five innings of an 8-6 defeat.

Jimenez allowed a three-run home run to Alex Gordon which proved to be the biggest blow of his outing. He owns a 4.50 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP in 52 innings. He'll make his next start Saturday at home against Cleveland.
