Ubaldo Jimenez Rounding Into Form; Spot in Orioles’ Rotation Assured?

The first three starts of Ubaldo Jimenez‘s 2015 Spring Training were far from pretty, and had many Orioles fans, including me, openly questioning his place with the Orioles. After three starts, the right-hander’s ERA sat at 11.05, and he had walked five batters and hit two more in only 7.1 innings. Now, three starts later, Jimenez has lowered his ERA this spring to 4.84. More...

Examining the Orioles options for Ubaldo Jimenez

Not time to hit the panic button on De La Rosa

It is not that pitching has always been the Colorado Rockies Achilles’ heel. As an organization the Rockies have just simply always had to work differently with pitchers than other franchises.
