Orioles Place Ubaldo Jimenez on 15-day DL

Orioles Place Ubaldo Jimenez on 15-day DL

Photos.com​/Thinkstoc​k(BALTIMORE) — The Baltimore Orioles placed pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle on Friday.

Jimenez twisted his ankle in a parking lot at his apartment complex on Wednesday.

“We were looking at it today and it’s pretty puffy, taped up,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday. “We were hoping it would resolve somewhat today. Did not.”

“He had it in 2012.  The only reason I asked him that is I wanted to know how quickly it healed. Anybody who’s rolled their ankle, they know once you do it once, it kind of falls on a similar pattern. And he did it pitching. They shut him down the last two or three starts in 2012,” Showalter continued.

Jimenez has a 3-8 with a 4.52 ERA this season and will catch a break with the All-Star break coming up on Monday.

“If it wasn’t for the All-Star break, we might wait a couple days,” Showalter said. “But it’s also the same ankle as 2012, and with ankles, I’ve learned that you kind of take a look at the history with them. It’s a lot weaker every time you put it in peril.”

Cruz Leads Orioles in DH Split with Boston

Cruz Leads Orioles in DH Split with Boston

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(BOSTON) — After Jonathan Herrera’s walk-off, pinch-hit single gave the Boston Red Sox a 3-2 win in Game One of a doubleheader, Nelson Cruz went 5-for-5 to lead Baltimore to a 7-4 win in the nightcap on Saturday. Cruz finished the second game mere inches from the cycle, being tagged out trying to stretch a double into a triple.

The Red Sox (39-48) took the first game on the strength of Jon Lester’s impressive pitching. The southpaw tossed eight innings, giving up two unearned runs, while striking out seven in a no-decision. He was matched by Miguel Gonzalez, who struck out six in eight innings. Johnny Gomes beat out an infield single to lead off the ninth. He was sacrificed to second by David Ross before scoring on Herrera’s broken bat looper to right.

In the nightcap, the Orioles (47-40) jumped out to a 2-0 lead thanks to Nick Hundley’s fourth inning homer. Boston tied things up on Stephen Drew’s second homer of the day before adding two more in the home half. Baltimore would then score five unanswered runs en route to a split. Cruz homered in the fifth after doubling and lacing a single in his previous two at-bats. His infield single in the sixth chased Red Sox starter John Lackey. Cruz’s fifth hit of the night came in the eighth with a double to left-center but he was thrown out trying to leg it into a triple.

“I had to try and see what happened,” Cruz said, smiling. “I don’t remember the last time I hit a triple.”

Matt Wieters to Have Season-Ending Tommy John Surgery

Matt Wieters to Have Season-Ending Tommy John Surgery

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will have season-ending Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, the team confirmed on Monday.

Wieters had a .308 batting average, five homers and 18 RBIs in 26 games.

“We were hoping to get real lucky today, but I think we all knew where it was headed,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said on Monday. “It really wasn’t making a whole lot of progress.”

Wieters has not played since May 10 and will have the injured ligament replaced by a tendon from the right wrist. 

Caleb Joseph and Nick Hundley are the two other catchers Baltimore has on their roster.

“I feel real confident with the two guys that we have here, and the depth we have below,” Showalter said.

Johan Santana Tears Achilles in Comeback Bid

Johan Santana Tears Achilles in Comeback Bid

Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(BALTIMORE, Md.) — Johan Santana has gone from of the games more dominant pitchers, to one of baseball’s more tragic stories. After being struck by a line drive and stumbling to field the ball in extended spring training, it was revealed that Santana suffered a torn Achilles tendon.

The injury is the latest in a string of devastating blows over the past couple seasons. A two-time Cy Young winner, Santana signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles in March after undergoing his second shoulder surgery in as many years.

“The skills are there. He’s been able to rehab his arm, but now he’s got another challenge,” said Orioles vice president of baseball operations. “He was pitching well. The last time out he had his velocity and he was able to back-door his slider.  After (Friday), he was going to come up and join the major league team, and we were going to continue the rehab in (Double-A) Bowie.”

The 35-year-old had his contract purchased from Triple-A Norfolk and was placed on the major league disabled list on Monday. Santana has not pitched in the Majors since 2012 while with the New York Mets.

Orioles Bringing Along Johan Santana Slowly

Orioles Bringing Along Johan Santana Slowly

Eliot J. Schechter/MLB Photos(NEW YORK) — The Baltimore Orioles could use a boost in the starting pitching department, which is why they’re carefully bringing along former All-Star starting pitcher Johan Santana so he can help them during the stretch run.

Santana has been pitching in the minor leagues to get healthy and fine tune his game so he can get back to the Major Leagues. The team plans on having Santana join the team sometime in mid-June.

The team is hoping to start Santana at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk in early-June. If all goes well, the team will call him up to the Majors.

“Ideally, the last outing would be six innings if the other club would cooperate,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “If these three options work out, he’d be an option for us. It’s one thing being able to get through it, it’s another thing to evaluate whether it will work up here.”

The 35-year-old Santana is working his way back from shoulder surgery. He has also dealt with various injuries since 2010.

Overall, he’s gone 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA during his 12-year career.
