Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez leads the majors with 60 walks allowed over 99 2/3 innings in 18 starts this season. He is 3-8 with a 4.52 ERA and .250 opponent batting average with a 1.54 WHIP heading into the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: The O's certainly expected much better numbers from Jimenez when they shelled out big bucks to the veteran to head up their rotation. So far, so bad. He remains useful to fantasy owners for his strikeouts (88 in 99 2/3 innings), but he has been hurtful in most other categories.

The Baltimore Orioles recalled SP Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk and placed SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) on the 15-day disabled list.

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) will be placed on the disabled list after rolling his ankle Wednesday, July 9. SP Kevin Gausman will be recalled to start Saturday, July 12, or Sunday, July 13, against the New York Yankees.
Fantasy Tip: Jimenez is having a dreadful season; he has three wins, a 4.52 ERA and a league-leading 60 walks. At this point, Jimenez cannot be started with confidence and isn't worth a roster spot in mixed leagues. Gausman is pushing for an official spot in the Orioles rotation. He has upside and should be on your radar in all formats. Strongly consider starting Gausman against the Yankees.

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez tossed a solid eight innings against the Texas Rangers and allowed just one run and four hits Monday, June 30, and he was happy with his mechanics during the outing. "Everything was working," Jimenez said. "My mechanics, in the last two games I've been able to feel comfortable on the mound, my mechanics are coming along."
Fantasy Tip: Could this be a turning point in Jimenez's season for the O's? It could be, since faulty and inconsistent mechanics have been his undoing in the past. It's something worth watching as we approach the second half.
