It was hard to say where and when Ubaldo Jimenez would sign a free agent deal following last season with the Cleveland Indians. Well it was reported today that Jimenez and the Baltimore Orioles agreed on a four-year deal worth $50 million.
Jimenez spent two and a half season in Cleveland after being with the Colorado Rockies for over five seasons. After finishing the 2010 season with a third place finish in the Cy Young Award, Jimenez has been somewhat disappointing.
In his first season and a half with the Indians, Jimenez started 42 games going 13-21, including a career worst 17 losses in 2012, and had an ERA of over five. Luckily, last season he went 13-9 with 3.30 ERA in just over 180 total innings.
Cleveland, who already has the 23rd pick in the first-year player draft this season, will receive the Orioles first-round pick (17th overall) for compensation.
