Ubaldo Jimenez: What a Season

Just how good has Ubaldo Jimenez’s 2010 season been for the Rockies?

Jimenez: Time to Sell

Jimenez: Time to Sell

Jimenez is 13-1 with a 1.15 ERA and a WHIP that is second in the MLB.  The last pitcher to start off the season with 13 wins and just 1 loss was Roger Clemens back in 1986.  Before that, you have to go back to a pretty fair pitcher named Lefty Gomez who did it in 1932 and another Lefty, Lefty Grove, who did it in 1931.

This for a pitcher that was a projected 7th rounder in most National League drafts in pre-season publications.

Ubaldo Jimenez has great stuff and he’s improved his stats every  year since coming up to the Big Leagues.

  • 2008 — 12-12 3.99 1.43
  • 2009 — 15-12 3.47 1.23
  • 2010 — 13-1 1.15 0.99

Yeah, that’s a pretty good year.

I know it’s hard to do, but there’s one guy in every fantasy baseball league who will overpay for stats like this.  It’s time to start shopping Ubaldo Jimenez.
