When the Baltimore Orioles hired Dan Duquette in November, 2011 many wondered whether the team was hiring an Executive Vice President who was going to work for the field Manager Buck Showalter.
It wasn’t facing his former team that brought out the worst in Ubaldo Jimenez. Unfortunately, it’s pretty much been like that all season for the $50 million right-hander. Jimenez didn’t get out of the fifth inning Saturday in the Baltimore Orioles’ 9-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The right-hander tied two undesirable season highs, giving up five runs and walking five, in four-plus innings.
