The Orioles inked Ubaldo Jimenez to a four-year deal this week and finally got the arm that the team and fans wanted. Some people aren’t 100% sold on how this move will play out, but Dan Szymborski of ESPN.com joined Zinno on “Last Call” to talk about how much he likes the move.
Szymborski said that Jimenez grades out very well for the money that the Orioles spent and that he could bring them three more wins on average. When you’re fighting for the Wild Card, that can be huge. Jimenez has also been the healthiest free agent starter out there and that was a big reason the Orioles wanted him, especially with the stringent physicals that the organization has.
