Thumb Forces Ubaldo Jimenez to the DL
Ubaldo Jimenez was placed on the 15-day disable list because of a cut on his thumb. He should be available on April 17th. Jimenez got off to a rough starting allowing five earned runs in six innings. Ubaldo got off to that incredible start last year, but historically April hasn’t been his strongest month. His April ERA is 4.38, which is the highest monthly ERA. The rest of the season he has a lifetime ERA of 3.44. Don’t hit the panic button just yet.
