Ubaldo Jimenez announces retirement from baseball.
Jimenez tried to make a comeback with the Rockies this season, but was released in mid-July. He hasn't pitched in the majors since 2017 and ultimately decided to retire. Ubaldo owned a record (114-117) along with 4.34 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 1,720 strikeouts over 1,870 innings during his 12-year career with the Rockies, Orioles and Indians.
The Rockies have decided to release Ubaldo Jimenez after they exclude from the 60-man player pool.
Ubaldo Jimenez is making it very clear he still wants to be a big league pitcher. He was 'caught off guard' after failing to be included in the Rockies' play pool, but he's not retiring yet. With a short season, and potential opt outs coming, he can still find a home this season.
Ubaldo Jimenez spun five innings Sunday, allowing only one run on one hit and a walk. He struck out ten, reminding everyone of the pitcher he used to be. Unfortunately, the strikeouts led to a high pitch count, and he was taken out early.
Talk about a surprise. Even with this nice start, Jimenez's numbers are still awful: 6.57 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. If you desperately need Ks at the end of the week, look to stream him against the Rays Saturday.
Ubaldo Jimenez made his return to the rotation Monday against the Blue Jays, surrendering only three runs on five hits and two walks. He managed to strike out five in the outing, but the Jays would beat the Orioles 4-3.
A tough-luck loss for Jimenez, but he hasn't pitched well for most of the year. With a 6.75 ERA and 1.60 WHIP for the year, fantasy owners need to stay away.
Ubaldo Jimenez fell to 5-9 on Tuesday night versus Oakland, allowing five runs on nine hits over five innings of work.
The right-hander struck out four and allowed just one walk, which is a positive. However, he allowed three homers as the Orioles lost 6-4. It's amazing that Baltimore continues to trot him out to the mound. Jimenez and his 6.57 ERA should be nowhere near your fantasy team.
