According to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, Indians’ northpaw Ubaldo Jimenez will be shut down for the remainder of the 2012 season due to a right ankle sprain with which he’s evidently been struggling for at least his last two starts.

No word on the cause of the offending sprain as of yet, nor on the expected value his absence is expected to contribute to the team for the remainder of the season.

The Indians hold a $5.75 million option on Jimenez for the 2013 season with a $1 million buyout.  Though exercising the option was once considered a fait accompli, there are now serious questions as to whether the club should bring Jimenez back based on his 5.43 ERA and 1.68 K/BB ratio since coming over from Colorado in a July 2011 trade for Drew Pomeranz and Alex White.
