Ubaldo Jimenez (SP-BAL)
At this point in time I don’t think there is one pitcher on the Orioles that you shouldn’t want on your team.
They are the only undefeated team remaining in the MLB, and with a potent offense supporting them, there are no signs of slowing down.
Jimenez has only pitched one game, but that was to a pretty good Nationals team and he sat down nine of them via the strikeout. He also only gave up two earned runs in seven innings of work.
Since his 2010 season where he went 19-8 and struck out 214, stability has been something that he just can’t find.
There are times when an aging pitcher has one last year where they dominate and have one last hoorah. This is going to be Jimenez’s year.
Along with that powerful offense and being able to limit walks (which will be his x-factor), this should be a nice year for the 11 season veteran. Do not hesitate to add him and confidently insert him into your lineups.
