Ubaldo Jimenez SP BAL 25 Days

Ubaldo Jimenez yielded just an unearned run over eight innings in a victory over the Rangers on Monday.

Jimenez gave up four hits, walked one and struck out seven in his first win since May 8 and third overall in 17 starts this season. He's still walked at least one batter every outing this year, and that poor command has prevented him from working deep into games. Still, this makes five starts out of his last seven in which he's allowed just one or two runs.

Ubaldo Jimenez got a no-decision, allowing four runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Orioles defeated the White Sox 5-4 in 12 innings on Wednesday.

Jimenez was in line for a league-leading ninth loss, but Nelson Cruz bailed him out in the eighth inning with a game-tying grand slam. Jimenez, who had put together four solid outings out of his last five trips to the hill, was shaky, allowing eight hits and two walks while striking out two. He'll take a 4.70 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, and a 77/53 K/BB ratio into next week's home start against the Rangers.

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up one earned run in 5 2/3 innings against the Yankees on Friday.

Jimenez held the Yankees to one run in six innings, but it wasn't easy. He loaded the bases three times in six innings. The Yankees were unable to capitalize on these chances, though, allowing Jimenez off the hook repeatedly. Jimenez's final line was one earned run in 5 2/3 innings with three strikeouts and six walks. He would have earned his third win had Zach Britton not blown the save.

Ubaldo Jimenez gave up two runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Jimenez lived dangerously in this one, giving up three hits and five walks, but the only damage against him was a two-run homer by Juan Francisco in the second inning. Still, it was enough to put him on the losing side. The high-priced right-hander fell to 2-8 with the loss and owns a disappointing 4.86 ERA and 68/45 K/BB ratio through 76 innings this season. He'll get the Rays next on the road.

Ubaldo Jimenez was done in by walks and big hits against the A's on Sunday, allowing six runs in 2 1/3 innings of work in the loss.

Jimenez' control continues to be a major problem, as he walked five on the day. He only allowed two hits before being removed, but they both went for extra bases -- a two-run double by John Jaso, and a grand slam by Brandon Moss. That was it for the right-hander. He's now 2-7 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.53 WHIP, and he'll face one of the league's best offenses in the Blue Jays on Friday.

Ubaldo Jimenez held the Rangers to one run on four hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision on Tuesday.

On the downside, Jimenez also issued four free passes on the evening, an issue that's plagued the right-hander all year. He didn't last long enough to pick up his third win, but he was able to lower his ERA to 4.39 in the no-decision. He's now turned in two pretty good starts in a row, but he's so inconsistent that it's tough to trust him outside of AL-only leagues right now. He'll try to keep rolling Sunday against the A's.

Ubaldo Jimenez got the no-decision, allowing one run over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

Jimenez bounced back from a pair of rough outings, allowing only three hits and walking three while striking out eight. The right-hander has been hit-or-miss so far, with his success very much tied to his control. Jimenez owns a 4.65 ERA and a 59/31 K/BB ratio in 62 innings. He'll try for his third win in his next start against the Rangers on the road.

Ubaldo Jimenez was hit hard in a losing effort against his former team on Saturday, allowing five runs on four hits in just four-plus innings of work.

Jimenez issued five free passes and struck out three on the abbreviated afternoon. He cruised through the first four innings virtually unscathed, but the train came off the tracks in the fifth inning where the first five hitters reached and Jimenez was chased without recording an out. Now 2-6 on the season, he'll carry a disappointing 4.98 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Astros in Houston.

Ubaldo Jimenez yielded five runs in five innings Sunday in a loss to the Royals.

After three straight strong outings to begin the month, Jimenez tied his season high for runs allowed in this one. Still, he did end the game with seven strikeouts and one walk, so this wasn't a complete return to his poor form of April. He'll get his former team, the struggling Cleveland Indians, in his next start.

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched well enough for the win but got a no-decision in Tuesday's start, shutting the Tigers out over seven innings, but the Orioles lost 4-1.

Jimenez turned in his second-finest outing of the season, limiting the Tigers to three hits and two walks while striking out seven. Jimenez's shot at his third win was squelched when Tommy Hunter blew the save in the ninth inning. Over his last three starts since the month of May began, Jimenez has allowed one run in 19 2/3 innings with a 20/5 K/BB ratio. He'll look to keep it rolling against the Royals on the road in his next start.
