Free-Agent Spotlight: Ubaldo Jimenez

Zachary D. RymerMLB Lead WriterSeptember 22, 2016

A year ago this time, Ubaldo Jimenez looked like a broken pitcher. After posting a 4.68 ERA in 2011, the right-hander followed it up with an even worse 5.40 ERA in 2012.

Flash forward a year, however, and Jimenez is now one of the most sought-after starting pitchers on the free-agent market.

Such is life when one follows up two rough years with a 3.30 ERA, and goodness knows that Jimenez further helped himself by posting a microscopic 1.82 ERA in the second half. Based on appearances, he’s “back.”

Here to dish on Jimenez’s free agency is MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer. He’ll cover everything from Jimenez’s projected salary to what he’s done to earn it to why teams should be wary of giving him a big pile of money.
