Description: Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez held the Rangers to one unearned run on four hits over eight innings Monday night to improve to 3-8.
Insight: Once every handful of starts, Jimenez (4.31 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) will put together a dominant outing that helps him keep his ERA in check. He's too inconsistent to trust in fantasy leagues, however. The right-hander has recorded a 36/31 K/BB over his last 44 innings.
Hot5/13/2014 9:59:00 PM
Description: Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez has allowed just 13 hits and one earned run while posting a 20/5 K/BB in his last 19 2/3 innings.
Insight: Jimenez ended April with a 6.59 ERA but he dropped to 4.02 after holding Detroit to three hits over seven scoreless innings Tuesday night. The right-hander is extremely erratic and difficult to trust in fantasy leagues, but we saw in the second half last year that he's still capable of dominating for long stretches.
5/3/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez finally entered the win column Friday against Minnesota.
Insight: Jimenez (1-4, 5.19 ERA) fanned ten hitters over 7 1/3 scoreless frames. It was easily the right-hander's best outing of the season. Jimenez will be on the hill again Thursday versus Tampa Bay.

Insight: We were wary of the inconsistent Jimenez this season after left his comfort zone in Cleveland to sign with Baltimore, and he has been highly ineffective so far. He has a 6.59 ERA, a 1.83 WHIP and a 21/17 K/BB in 27 1/3 innings.

2/17/2014 7:47:00 PM
Description: According to Ken Rosenthal of, the Orioles have agreed to terms on a deal with Ubaldo Jimenez.
Insight: Rosenthal said the numbers reported by Roch Kubatko of -- four years, $48 million -- are close to the actual contract value. Jimenez revived his career by going 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA and 194 strikeouts in 182 2/3 innings last season (5-2 with a 1.65 ERA and 79 K in his last 60 IP) but he's still a huge risk due to his inconsistent pitching mechanics. Jimenez will have to pass a physical and the O's are known for putting players through stringent health tests (Grant Balfour and Tyler Colvin already failed tests with Baltimore this offseason), so the deal is not yet completed.

Insight: Jimenez definitely improved his stock by having an excellent season in 2013 (13-9, 3.30 ERA) but nobody's going to pay him $20 million a year. Any team that signs him will have to give up a draft pick to do so after Jimenez rejected the Indians' $14 million qualifying offer back in November.
