Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez: Open to minors assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez won't start in any of the Orioles' three games against the Rays before the regular season comes to a close, 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Battered by Mariners on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (5-8) took the loss against the Mariners on Wednesday, allowing six runs on eight hits and a walk over 4.1 innings while striking out two.

He fell back to earth with a thud after four straight positive outings, throwing 57 of 94 pitches for strikes and looking more like the pitcher who compiled a 6.67 ERA prior to the All-Star break. Jimenez remains a very risky and volatile play, but for fantasy GMs who like to live dangerously, his next start is scheduled for Monday at home against the A's.

August 17, 2017 07:09 PM
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Confirmed as Wednesday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (leg) has been confirmed as Wednesday's starter against the Mariners.

A line drive struck Jimenez in his leg his last time out, which resulted in a somewhat abbreviated outing, but he was never believed to be in serious danger of missing Wednesday's start. Jimenez has fared quite well in his last four starts, allowing a total of seven runs over 24 innings with a 32:8 K:BB, but his track record suggests this success will be fleeting.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Removed after being struck by liner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez was lifted from Friday's start against the A's after he was struck by a line drive on the right leg, Steve Melewski of reports.

The right-hander earned the no-decision after going 5.1 innings in the 5-4 loss, but may have lasted longer had it not been for an errant liner off the bat of Chad Pinder. Jimenez didn't appear to be in any significant pain while being checked on by trainers, yet exited the game after 99 pitches under his own power. His next start is scheduled to come Wednesday against Seattle, though the Orioles should confirm his status within the coming days.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Strikes out 11 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez struck out 11 but was left with a no-decision after allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Friday against the Athletics.

Jimenez has been piling on the strikeouts over his past four starts, as he now owns 32 through just 24 innings in that span. With that nastiness comes some inconsistency, though, as Jimenez has served up four home runs in that span as well and is just 1-1 with a pair of no-decisions as a result. He is showing some life for the first time in a long time, though, and it's hard to ignore those gigantic strikeout numbers.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Allows one run in win over Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (5-7) allowed one run on nine hits and three walks across 5.2 innings in Sunday's win over the Tigers. He struck out six.

Jimenez, who routinely worked with men on base, did a nice job mitigating the damage thanks in part to eight groundball outs, in addition to his strikeout totals. The only run charged to his ledger came via a solo home run from Nick Castellanos in the fifth inning. Jimenez was shelled over his first four starts in July, but he has since rattled off three consecutive solid outings, allowing four runs across 18.2 innings during that span. He still owns a troublesome 6.31 ERA for the season, but Jimenez is pitching effectively heading into Friday's showdown with the Athletics.

August 5, 2017 12:36 PM
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Slated to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

After back-to-back six-run blowups, Jimenez closed out July with consecutive quality starts, allowing a total of three runs while striking out 15 over 13 innings in those two outings. That run of success will afford Jimenez another opportunity to start in the immediate future, and it's possible Jimenez will stick in the rotation for a while longer, as the team is reportedly considering moving Chris Tillman to the bullpen instead.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Turns in another poor month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez went 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA and a 32:13 K:BB over six starts and 32 innings in July.

The 33-year-old continued to do what he has all season -- throw up unsightly numbers, but mix in a couple of decent performances. Jimenez gave up 21 runs on 31 hits in his first four games of July, then proceeded to give up just three runs while striking out 15 in his final two outings of the month. His recent run of success may afford Jimenez more chances to start even with Jeremy Hellickson coming aboard from Philadelphia.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Holds Royals in check during quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez allowed one run on five hits and two walks across seven innings in a no-decision Monday against the Royals. He struck out six.

Jimenez gave up an RBI double to Eric Hosmer in the first inning, but he settled in after that point and breezed through seven frames on an even 100 pitches. Unfortunately, Danny Duffy's gem on the other side prevented Jimenez from earning his fifth win; instead, he had to settle for his second consecutive quality start. Three earned runs over 13 innings in his last two starts qualifies as his best back-to-back stretch this season, and he'll try to keep it going Saturday against the Tigers.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Fans nine in six innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez gave up two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out nine over six innings Wednesday against the Rays.

He got tagged with the rare loss that he did not actually deserve in this one. Jimenez pitched well enough for the O's to prevail, but he was narrowly outpitched by Alex Cobb on the other side, and his bullpen gave up three runs in two innings after he left. This was Jimenez's third quality start in his last eight outings. He lines up for two home starts next week against the Royals and Tigers.

July 22, 2017 07:32 PM
Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Suffers another lopsided loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (4-6) pitched 5.1 innings Friday, allowing six runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out five in a loss to the Astros.

The battle-weary veteran stood no chance Friday against the AL's best team. He allowed two first-inning home runs and surrendered five runs in the first two frames. In four starts this month, Jimenez has allowed 20 runs over 19 innings, pushing his ERA to 7.19 -- the worst mark of any pitcher in the majors with more than 75 innings. If manager Buck Showalter keeps the right-hander in the rotation, then Jimenez would toe the rubber for his next start Wednesday in Tampa.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Crushed by Cubs on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez (4-5) was crushed in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, allowing six runs on 11 hits and a walk while striking out two over just 3.2 innings.

After a smooth first inning, Jimenez was popped for four runs on six hits -- including three straight doubles to open the frame -- in the second. His 11 hits allowed were just one shy of tying a career high, and the righty failed to get past the fifth inning for the fourth time in five starts. Jimenez's rebound effort won't be much easier, as he's slated to make his next start Friday against Houston.

Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez: Tabbed as No.3 starter coming out of break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jimenez will start the Orioles' third game coming out of the All-Star break when they host the Cubs, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

He'll be opposed on the hill by Jose Quintana, who will be making his Cubs debut Sunday. Jimenez stumbled a bit heading into the break as he failed to make it out of the fifth inning in three of his last four starts. He notched a 7.97 ERA in that stretch, and even that number is significantly aided by a scoreless outing over 8.0 innings against Toronto.
