The Baltimore Orioles dropped starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez from their American League Championship Series roster and added left-handed reliever Brian Matusz.
The Orioles signed Jimenez to a $50 million deal before the season started. For their investment they received a pitcher who compiled a 6-8 record with a 4.81 ERA. He missed much of July and pitched only 11 innings in September.
Jimenez was on the Orioles’ American League Division Series roster but did not pitch against Detroit.
Jimenez was 6-8 with a 4.81 ERA in 22 starts. He missed time because of injury in July.
Matusz had a 2-3 record with a 3.48 ERA this season.
