Ubaldo Jimenez reportedly agrees to deal with Baltimore Orioles


Ubaldo Jimenez, whose career accomplishments and current value have been thoroughly evaluated and debated this off-season, finally has a deal to pitch in 2014 and beyond.

Confirming what was reported to be close to happening earlier today, Jimenez and the Baltimore Orioles have reportedly both agreed to a deal for four years and $50 million.

Roch Kubatko first reported the deal in its initial stages:

Jon Heyman of CBS firmed up the details of the deal later tonight.

Finally, Ken Rosenthal and others report that the deal is all but official, as both sides have agreed.

Oh no. Not a physical…

As recently as last week, the Baltimore Orioles actually did not have anybody listed as their fifth starter. They now ink Jimenez to a deal in addition to adding Suk-Min Yoon to the mix last week. At the very least they now have more depth and competition for their rotation, and with Jimenez they get a guy who will immediately become a contender to be the staff ace.
