  • Ubaldo Jimenez: Brings end to playing career

    Jimenez announced his retirement from professional baseball Thursday.

    After receiving his release from the Rockies in July when he failed to win an Opening Day roster spot out of summer camp, Jimenez had committed to pitch in the Dominican Winter League for Tigres del Licey. However, rather than attempting to use the DWL as a potential springboard for a MLB return, the 36-year-old Jimenez has opted to call an end to his career. Jimenez enjoyed the best years of his career in Colorado, earning his lone All-Star nod during a brilliant 2010 campaign in which he threw the first no-hitter in franchise history to go along with a 2.88 ERA to go with 214 strikeouts over 221.2 innings. He struggled to recapture that form after being traded to the Indians the following year and was out of the big leagues entirely following his age-33 season in 2017. Jimenez will retire with a career 114-117 record, 4.34 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over his 12 years in the majors.

  • Ubaldo Jimenez: Parts ways with Colorado

    Jimenez was released by the Rockies on Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.

    The 36-year-old was somewhat of a surprising omission from the team's 60-player pool, and he's now returning to free agency. Jimenez has been out of affiliated baseball since 2017 but was hoping to revitalize his career this season, though he's hit yet another bump in the road.

  • Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez: Won't make 60-man roster

    Jimenez will not be a part of the Rockies' 60-man player pool, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

    He was not going to open the year in the majors under normal circumstances, but his absence from the 60-man roster is mildly surprising, as he could have at least acted as a long reliever or mop-up man. This could signify the end of the road for Jimenez's MLB career.

  • Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez: Open to minors assignment

    Jimenez is expected to be open to beginning the season in the minors, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Jimenez is 36 years old and has been out of affiliated baseball since the end of the 2017 season, so it's hardly surprising to see him scuffling in his comeback bid. He's allowed nine runs (five earned) while striking out just 2 batters in 5.1 innings so far this spring. He doesn't look like one of Colorado's five best starters at the moment, but he could prove he's still a viable option after working his way back into game shape at the Triple-A level.

  • Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez: Invited to Rockies' camp

    Jimenez signed with the Rockies as a non-roster invitee Wednesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

    Jimenez last pitched in 2017 for Baltimore, where he finished the season with a 6.81 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and a 8.8 K/9 average. The 36-year-old was an All-Star with Colorado during the 2010 season, posting a 2.88 ERA and tallying 214 strikeouts. Jimenez will look to impress the big-league coaching staff this spring in an attempt to make the Rockies' roster and return successfully to the place where he began his prolonged career in the majors.

  • Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Moves to bullpen for rest of season

    Jimenez won't start in any of the Orioles' three games against the Rays before the regular season comes to a close, MLB.com reports.

    Manager Buck Showalter will go with a four-man rotation for the Orioles' five-game week, leaving no room for Jimenez or Chris Tillman. Jimenez, who was lit up for six runs over three innings in his last outing Sept. 22, carries a 6-11 record, 6.81 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 142.2 frames on the season. He'll be a free agent this offseason and may struggle to garner more than a minor-league deal given his immense struggles during his four seasons in Baltimore.

  • Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Hammered for six runs in Friday defeat

    Jimenez (6-11) allowed six runs on eight hits while striking out three across three innings to take the loss Friday against the Rays.

    Jimenez gave up a pair of homers in the early going, leading to his early exit while never giving the Orioles a chance to compete in this contest. With a 6.81 ERA on the season, he's likely not being utilized by many teams playing this late in the fantasy season. He'll make his next start Sunday against the Rays.

  • Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Strikes out 10 in win over Yankees

    Jimenez (6-10) tossed five one-run innings to earn the win Sunday against the Yankees, allowing three hits with one walk and 10 strikeouts.

    Jimenez gave up a solo home run to Didi Gregorious in the second inning, but he settled down and cruised to one of his best outings in recent memory. He threw just 54 percent of his pitches for strikes and induced just two groundball outs, but his ability to finish off hitters helped him to a successful outing. After briefly moving to the bullpen, Jimenez seems set to finish the season in the rotation and has strung together a couple of respectable outings ahead of Friday's matchup with the Rays.

  • Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Allows three runs in loss to Blue Jays

    Jimenez (5-10) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks across five innings to earn the loss Monday against the Blue Jays. He struck out five.

    Jimenez allowed a pair of runs on three hits in the second inning before yielding a solo home run in the fourth. He threw a respectable number of strikes, but the veteran paid the price for his wavering command in the form of four extra-base hits. Jimenez worked out of the bullpen in his previous appearance, but this start was an improvement over the last three times he got the nod. He could remain in the rotation for Friday's start against the Yankees.

  • Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Lasts just 2.2 innings in no-decision

    Jimenez allowed six runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three batters through 2.2 innings during Wednesday's win over Seattle. He didn't factor into the decision.

    The veteran righty has now allowed 17 runs through just 12 innings over his past three starts and is up to a 6.85 ERA and 1.60 WHIP for the campaign. Those numbers aren't helping many fantasy owners, and Jimenez should be viewed as a risky option in all settings moving forward. He projects to make his next start against the Yankees at Camden Yards.

  • Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Allows three home runs in loss to Atheltics

    Jimenez (5-9) allowed five runs on nine hits and one walk across five innings while taking the loss in Tuesday's game against the Athletics. He struck out four.

    All of the runs on Jimenez's ledger came via the home run in this one. Jed Lowrie and Ryon Healy both went deep in the first inning before the latter added a two-run shot in the fifth. He seemed to have turned things around with a string of respectable starts into mid-August, but he's allowed 11 runs in 9.1 innings over his last two starts. Jimenez continues to display inconsistency and will take a disappointing 6.57 ERA into next Monday's start against the Mariners.
