[Ubaldo] Jimenez to the bullpen

This always looked like a risky signing, and, well.

The Orioles have moved struggling starter Ubaldo Jimenez to the bullpen, manager Buck Showalter announced on Tuesday.

Signed to a four-year, $50 million deal this winter —the largest contact in club history for a free-agent pitcher— Jimenez has dealt with injury and ineffectiveness and gave up six earned runs over 4 1/3 innings this weekend in Cleveland. After that game, Showalter wouldn’t commit to whether Jimenez —4-9 with a 4.83 ERA— would get a chance to redeem himself, though this move seemed likely.

Particularly with right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who will start Sunday, waiting in the wings… Gonzalez, who was optioned to the Minor Leagues to clear a roster spot for Jimenez, has pitched to a 3.80 ERA in 20 games (19 starts)...How Jimenez is used in the Orioles bullpen depends on how they clear a roster spot for Gonzalez on Sunday.
