Baltimore Sun: Ubaldo Out, Gallardo In Orioles Rotation

Buck gives Ubaldo the boot to the bullpen as Gallardo returns from the DL.

As Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez struggled through May and slumped to the status of, statistically, the worst starting pitcher in the majors, his job remained his because the answer to any questions about a replacement was a question of its own: “Who else?”

Manager Buck Showalter on Tuesday finally had an answer. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo will return from the disabled list Saturday and start in Jimenez’s place in the Orioles rotation. Jimenez, for the second time in his three seasons with the Orioles, has been banished to the bullpen.
