Ubaldo Jimenez Named NL Player of the Week

David MartinAnalyst IApril 19, 2010

In a move that should surprise no one, Major League Baseball announced today that Ubaldo Jimenez is the player of the week for the National League.


Jimenez threw the first no-hitter in Colorado Rockies history on Saturday night against a very good hitting Braves team. He was the definition of effectively wild, walking six batters and striking out seven. The flame-throwing right-hander threw 128 pitches in the performance, hitting 97 MPH on the final pitch.

With the no-hitter, the right hander has established himself as one of the best pitchers in baseball, something that those covering the team on a regular basis have known for a long time. A no-hitter, however, is something that will turn national heads to the talent that Jimenez possesses.
