Indians | Ubaldo Jimenez pummeled

Cleveland Indians SP Ubaldo Jimenez allowed seven runs in the second inning en route to losing to the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, April 16. He walked five, including two with the bases loaded. Jimenez is just 1-12 since the second half of last season. He gave up two hits and seven earned runs while striking out one in only 1 2/3 innings in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: After an encouraging first start to the season, Jimenez has put together back-to-back frustrating starts in which his control has once again abandoned him. Until he can get back on track, he should be benched in mixed formats or dropped altogether for a more promising pitcher.
