Analysis: With right-hander Miguel Gonzalez expected to be recalled soon after throwing a 75-pitch simulated game Monday for Double-A Bowie, the Orioles needed to clear a spot in the rotation for his impending return from the minor leagues. Jimenez, 30, has struggled in his first year with the Orioles after signing a four-year, $50 million contract before the season. He's 4-9 with a 4.83 ERA and has walked 66 batters, tops in the American League.

Analysis: Jimenez finally had his breakthrough with the Orioles. Jimenez (1-4) allowed only three hits while taking a significant step forward from five rough starts to begin his $50 million, four-year contract with the Orioles. Jimenez dropped his ERA from 6.59 to 5.19, after leaving with one out in the eighth following Eduardo Escobar's double.
