Player Notes
The Orioles have moved Ubaldo Jimenez to the bullpen.

Advice: It's the right move but one that undoubtedly stings given that Jimenez is just 20 starts into his four-year, $50 million contract. The 30-year-old has posted a 4.83 ERA over those 20 outings and leads the American League with 66 walks even after spending time on the disabled list. Miguel Gonzalez will rejoin the Orioles' rotation on Sunday, and the move also means that Kevin Gausman will keep his job.

The Orioles could skip Ubaldo Jimenez's next turn in the rotation or move him to the bullpen.

Advice: The O's toyed with the idea of bringing Jimenez back as a reliever when he return from the DL before ultimately deciding against it. However, the option is on the table again after the righty allowed six runs over just 4 1/3 frames against the Indians Saturday. For what it's worth, manager Buck Showalter isn't tipping his hand as to Jimenez's future role. "I'm kind of decided but I'm not going to [say]," Showalter said. "We'll see. we'll see how the next few days ago. His work day is the day after tomorrow. So, see how he is when we get there."

Ubaldo Jimenez allowed six runs in four and a third innings of work on Saturday.

Advice: Jimenez allowed five hits, walked three and gave up two home runs in the loss. In other words, it was a typical Ubaldo Jimenez outing. Jimenez would need to lower his 1.55 WHIP considerably if he wanted to realistically improve on the 4.83 ERA that he currently boasts. Carlos Santana hit a three-run home run in the first inning and Michael Brantley hit a two-run shot in the fifth. Jimenez missed almost the entire month of July with an ankle injury, but he's picked up right where he left over in terms of inconsistency. It might be a struggle for Jimenez to keep his rotation spot through the end of the season.
