Jimenez will start Thursday's game in Washington in place of Chris Tillman (shoulder) who is headed for the DL, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Dubroff reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Orioles would obviously like to have a better option, but there were five big-league caliber starters in the organization, and Tillman was one of them, so they will have to make do with Jimenez on Thursday. He has a 6.72 ERA in 84.1 innings as a starter this season and should be avoided in almost all formats Thursday. Tillman will miss at least two starts, and Jimenez could stick in the rotation until he returns.

Jimenez threw three perfect innings of relief Sunday, striking out three, to get credited with his first career save in a 10-2 rout of the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It was his first appearance since getting bumped from the rotation after the Wade Miley trade and while Jimenez looked sharp, the fact that he was working long relief in a blowout win isn't exactly an encouraging sign that he'll see much high-leverage work down the stretch.

Jimenez will not be in the current rotation following the acquisition of Wade Miley, MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jimenez turned in perhaps his best outing of the season last Friday, allowing one run in five innings with eight strikeouts. The latter number was his second best total of the season. It is not enough to right the ship, as Jimenez has struggled all season. He will remain in line for long relief and he could return to the rotation later if there is an injury. Also, it is notable that Dylan Bundy may see limited pitch counts and one of the long relievers will likely need to piggyback on his starts.

Jimenez (5-9) pitched five innings, allowing one run, five hits and three walks while striking out eight Thursday against the Twins. He did not factor in the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Making his return from the paternity list, Jimenez turned in his best performance since his first start of the year back on April 7. The veteran is having the worst season of his major league career, but Jimenez managed to put it together in a 104-pitch performance that went to the wayside when he turned the game over to the bullpen. Although Thursday's outing was pleasant, practically nothing else about Jimenez's season has been fun, and this one night shouldn't change the overall picture regarding his fantasy value. The right-hander has been the subject of recent trade rumors, but assuming he sticks in Baltimore, he'll make his next start Wednesday against the Rangers.

Jimenez will start Thursday's game against the Twins, the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina reports.

EDGE Analysis

He returned from the paternity list Tuesday, and the Orioles will give him the ball Thursday out of desperation. He has given up 11 runs over his last 5.2 innings and his ERA sits at 7.38 -- the highest mark by far of any starter with 80 or more innings this season.

EDGE Analysis

Jimenez had been on the paternity list, but is now back with the team. He's expected to take the mound Thursday night against the Twins, however, Baltimore has yet to officially name a starter for the contest. Jimenez, who hasn't pitched since July 8, has struggled for much of the season, as he's 5-9 with a 7.38 ERA.

Jimenez will come off the paternity list Tuesday, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jimenez will remain on the paternity list for one more day following the birth of his child over the weekend. The expectation as of now is that he'll be in line to start Thursday in Minnesota, but the team is yet to confirm. Jimenez last pitched on July 8, when he was shelled for five earned runs on five hits in just 1.1 innings.

Jimenez, who remains on the paternity list, could rejoin the Orioles on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jimenez's wife gave birth to the couple's child Saturday night, and after spending Sunday with the newborn, he could decide to head back to work. The right-hander is sitting on a 7.38 ERA and 1.97 WHIP over 81.2 innings for the season, putting his spot in the Orioles' rotation firmly on the bubble.

Jimenez was placed on the paternity list Saturday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tyler Wilson was recalled to help out of the bullpen while Jimenez is away. Jimenez, who unexpectedly became the subject of trade rumors Friday, can miss no more than three games while on paternity leave.

Jimenez may be placed on the paternity list, as his wife is expected to give birth Saturday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports

EDGE Analysis

Nothing is set in stone at this point, but with Jimenez currently away from the team while accompanying his wife at the hospital, it seems rather possible that a paternity list placement could be in his future. If that's the case, an announcement may not come until Sunday, and the Orioles would likely add a long reliever to temporarily compensate for the loss of Jimenez.
