(CBS Sports) Free agent starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez appears to finally have a team. He has agreed to sign with the Orioles, Jon Heyman confirms. Heyman reports that the deal is for four years and $50 million.

The deal has been finalized, other than that pesky physical — and with the Orioles, you never know if the player will pass.

Jimenez, 30, finished third in NL Cy Young voting in 2010, when he was one of baseball’s best pitchers. He had largely disappointed since then, until putting things together down the stretch for the Indians last season.

In Jimenez’s last 12 starts, he went 6-4 with a 1.72 ERA and 94 strikeouts in 78 1/3 innings. On the season, he was 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA (114 ERA+), 1.33 WHIP and 194 strikeouts in 182 2/3 innings.
