The Baltimore Orioles have announced that Ubaldo Jimenez has injured his ankle and have called up Kevin Gausman. Apparently according to manager Buck Showalter, Jimenez stepped in a hole in the parking lot. At least that’s what Showalter told Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com
He stepped in a hole in the parking lot. We were looking at it today. It’s pretty puffy, taped up. He tried to take a work day yesterday. We were hoping that it would resolve somewhat today, it did not and he’s not going to be able to start tomorrow.
Jimenez hasn’t delivered for the Orioles this year has he has a 4.52 ERA and a league-high 60 walks in 100 innings. Kevin Gausman has been a lot better as he has a 3.51 ERA in six starts.
