2014 Record: 96-66
#31 Ubaldo Jimenez
Feb 26: Jimenez will start the first game of Baltimore's spring training season Tuesday, according to Britt Ghiroli of MLB.com. The Orioles likely want to take a long look at Jimenez, Miguel Gonzalez and Kevin Gausman as the three players battle for two spots in the rotation. Jimenez figures to land with the team in some capacity, even if it is the bullpen since Gausman and Gonzalez have minor league options. Jimenez was effectively benched in September before making a couple of late starts when the division lead was well in hand. He made an adjustment in his delivery that the team seemed pleased with, but he was still left off the roster. When it rains, it pours with Jimenez. His control remains the key. Jimenez could have a 3.94 BB/IP like 2013 with Cleveland or a 5.53 BB/9 like last year with the Orioles.
