Ubaldo Jimenez pitches 4 2/3 innings in rehab start for Aberdeen

Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez made his first injury rehabilitation start at short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Tuesday night, throwing 4 2/3 innings against the Tri-City ValleyCats at Ripken Stadium and allowing one unearned run, five hits and three walks.

Jimenez, who remains on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle, pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the third inning and allowed a run in the fourth on a wild pitch.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during his pregame session with the media at Camden Yards that the club would decide after evaluating the Aberdeen appearance whether to keep him in the minor leagues for another start or activate him.

“We’ll see, if it goes well,’’ Showalter said. “We can pitch him at Norfolk or activate him. We’ll see [after] tonight.”

Around the horn

First baseman Chris Davis was not in the starting lineup for the series opener against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. He has been experiencing flu symptoms for the past couple days and was sent home, though Showalter said before the game that Davis might return before the end of the game if he felt better. … The Orioles’ 7 p.m. home game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Aug. 8 will be televised by MLB Network as its “Showcase” game. Bob Costas, Jim Kaat and Tom Verducci will call the game. … Right-hander Dylan Bundy was charged with two runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings for High-A Frederick on Tuesday. He walked five batters and struck out one. … Low-A Delmarva pitching coach Alan Mills will be the pitching coach for the Glendale Desert Dogs of the Arizona Fall League this year, and Aberdeen’s Chris Poole will serve as the club’s athletic trainer. Players from the Orioles’ organization will be assigned to Glendale later this year.
