The spiraling season of Ubaldo Jimenez hit a new low Saturday as the struggling right-hander suffered through his shortest start in more than three years, adding pressure on Orioles manager Buck Showalter to bump Jimenez from the starting rotation.
Jimenez lasted just 1 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 11-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field, allowing eight of the 14 batters he faced to reach base. The outing was his shortest start since April 16, 2013, when he lasted 1 2/3 innings for the Indians against the Boston Red Sox.
Jimenez was charged with six runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks.
Jimenez has a 10.26 ERA over his past four starts...
