Transaction Analysis: Orioles Embrace Ubaldo's Upside

Why Ubaldo Jimenez' fluctuations make him a good fit for an underdog like the Orioles.

Which teams' glass slippers best fit the six still-unsigned top-50 free agents?

It was new and exciting in November, mundane in December, and comforting and familiar in January. But by mid-February, speculating about likely landing spots for attractive free agents is as tired as publicly celebrating the Beatles.*

Granted, the alternative would be talking about the sort of stuff that otherwise occupies us early in spring training: what players look like; what players look like from afar; what players might look like from afar, if we could see them; what players look like upside-down; meaningless quotes about team chemistry. There’s only so much we can do to combat the boring until real baseball begins.

Rumor Roundup: Failures to Communicate

Daniel Rathman

The teams and remaining free agents that still seem not to be talking.

No recent contact between Indians, Ubaldo Jimenez
The Indians tendered Ubaldo Jimenez a qualifying offer. The right-hander turned it down. Since then, according to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the sides have barely spoken.

With the Pitch Usage tool on BrooksBaseball, you can see how certain pitchers vary their offerings depending on the situation.

I’m writing this blog post with the knowledge that a lot of people reading this, especially those who are “inside” baseball, will be shaking their heads at the monitor once they finish. We're used to dismissing RISP statistics because the sample sizes are too small. In this case, though, we appear to see real and meaningful differences.

Daniel Rathman

Ubaldo Jimenez won't come cheap, and the Padres' Cory Luebke might be in the bullpen.

Padres could use Tommy John survivor Cory Luebke as a reliever
General manager Josh Byrnes has not done much to bolster his lineup this offseason, but the pitching staff has a few fresh faces.

Fantasy Freestyle: Eight Surging Starters

2

Paul Sporer

As the season winds down, don't forget about these pitchers, who are worth both in the home stretch and for 2014.

As you scramble to lock down your titles, you might have missed these eight starters who have been on fire of late. Their composite numbers are likely obscuring the fact that they have been great the last month or so and need to be in your lineup. Most are these are guys likely sitting on someone’s bench, but a couple may even be on the waiver wire. If you’re not in contention, you might want to start looking deeper at these arms as potential keeper candidates for 2014.

Overthinking It: Is Ubaldo Back?

7

Ben Lindbergh

Are the struggles of erstwhile ace Ubaldo Jimenez over?

Just over a month ago on Effectively Wild, Sam Miller and I surveyed the 2014 options that teams would have to decide to pick up or pass on at the end of this season. When we came to the Indians’ $8 mutual million option on Ubaldo Jimenez, we very nearly dismissed it without saying what it was.

Me: Ubaldo Jimenez.
Sam: Pass.
Me: You don’t even want to hear the amount?
Sam: Well, what is the amount?
Me: The amount is $8 million.
Sam: Given who’s a free agent starter this winter, it wouldn’t kill me if a team did that at all. I would pass, but it wouldn’t break my heart.

What You Need to Know: The Pirates Make it Official

1

Daniel Rathman

Gerrit Cole helps Pittsburgh seal win no. 82, Juan Uribe breaks out, Gio Gonzalez nearly no-hits the Mets, plus Andrelton Simmons and more.

The Monday Takeaway
Last Tuesday, Gerrit Cole helped the Pirates take the first step in their resurgence, contributing six innings of two-run ball toward a 4-3 victory that sealed at least a .500 team record. Then the Pirates lost four in a row, three of them to the first-place Cardinals. Six days after they earned that symbolic win, they were still stuck on 81.

Cole would have none of that on Monday night in Arlington, when he was asked to outduel Yu Darvish. His seven brilliant frames, authored in one of the league’s toughest venues, were one small step for the rookie pitcher, one giant leap for his franchise.

What Scouts Are Saying: September 5, 2013

Baseball Prospectus

Scouts' takes on Lucas Giolito, Ubaldo Jimenez, Jason Kipnis, Chris Owings, and other interesting players.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike.

What You Need to Know: Could Washington Win the Wild Card?

2

Daniel Rathman

The Nationals finally have a hot streak, the A's lose a tough one, Ubaldo bounces back, and more.

The Thursday Takeaway
The 2013 Nationals, fresh off a terrific 2012 season that was halted by the Cardinals in the National League Division Series, were supposed to be a juggernaut. The question was not whether Washington would earn a second straight playoff appearance, but whether the Nats could win the pennant or perhaps even a World Series title.

For 104 games, just about everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. Injuries struck Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth. The high-upside gamble on Dan Haren looked foolish in the early going. And hits with runners in scoring position were harder to come by than compromises on Capitol Hill. On August 7, the Nationals were 54-60, 15 ½ games behind the Braves in the East and nine games out in the wild card.
