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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 paid the price for wavering control 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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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

EDGE Analysis

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.

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 MASNSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
