Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman will start against the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, Aug. 10, with SP Bud Norris pitching against the New York Yankees Monday, Aug. 11.
Fantasy Tip: The O's still haven't announced a corresponding roster move for SP Ubaldo Jimenez, who will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Cards Saturday, Aug. 9. It had been rumored that a starting pitcher could be demoted to clear space for Jimenez on the 25-man roster but now we know it won't be Gausman or Norris.

Baltimore Orioles SPs Wei-Yin Chen, Kevin Gausman, Bud Norris and Miguel Gonzalez all have options left and are candidates to be sent down when SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) is activated from the 15-day disabled list. One of the pitchers could be moved to the bullpen if the team sends down a reliever.

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) will return from the 15-day disabled list and start Saturday, Aug. 9, against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: Jimenez has been erratic all year, and trusting him in his first start in more than a month is risky. However, he could be worth a flier if you are desperate for strikeouts in AL-only leagues.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Aug. 6, and he said he feels prepared to return to the starting rotation.

A decision is expected Thursday, Aug. 7, and Jimenez will either start Saturday, Aug. 9, or Sunday, Aug. 10, against the St. Louis Cardinals, or he could return out of the bullpen.

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) could return as a long reliever when he comes off the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: That would kill any fantasy value he had, which was really only in AL-only leagues anyway.

Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez (ankle) is done with his rehab assignment in the minors and could return from the disabled list as soon as Friday, Aug. 8.
Fantasy Tip: It's probably safe to stay away from starting Jimenez at least initially back from his DL stint. It's unclear who he'll face in his first start back, though. Jimenez's return could push Kevin Gausman back to the minors.
