The Baltimore Orioles hope starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, who hasn't taken the mound since July 5 due to a sprained right ankle, can return soon.

The Baltimore Orioles hope starter Ubaldo Jimenez can return soon.

Jimenez has been out of commission since July 5 due to a sprained right ankle. CSN Baltimore's Rich Dubroff says the team hopes he can pitch again after their current West Coast road trip: 

"When will Ubaldo Jimenez pitch again? Jimenez, who hasn't pitched since July 5 because of a sprained right ankle, was supposed to throw a rehab game on Wednesday. 

"That's been scrubbed. Jimenez threw a bullpen on Sunday, but didn't feel enough progress had been made, and as a result, he'll try again on Tuesday or most probably Wednesday.

"If that goes well, Jimenez could throw a rehab game this weekend, and the Orioles have always preferred rehabbing starters to face higher level competition.

"If Jimenez is ready to pitch for the Orioles when they return home on July 29, then Showalter can face the dreaded six starter question.

"While that possibility has been there since Showalter first mentioned it early last month, much to his regret, the Orioles have had Miguel Gonzalez, Bud Norris, and now Jimenez on the disabled list for much of that time." 

MLB.com's Aaron Leibowitz spoke with Jimenez, who said his condition has improved, on July 20: 

"Ubaldo Jimenez threw his second bullpen on Sunday morning since going on the disabled list with a right ankle sprain, and afterward he and manager Buck Showalter determined he will need at least one more session before making a rehab start. 

"'Each time it's a little better, but he's still favoring somewhat,' said Showalter after Sunday's 10-2 loss to the A's. 'He's not to the point where he can go out and start a rehab. Not there yet.' 

"Jimenez spent part of Sunday's bullpen pitching out of the stretch, which was the next challenge for the right-hander to overcome in his rehab. But he was a bit hesitant to push off his right foot, and he was noticeably limping afterward as he went to receive treatment. 

"Showalter originally felt that, if all went well, Jimenez could make a rehab start as soon as Wednesday. But that assignment will have to wait. 

"Jimenez has injured his right ankle before, at the end of the 2012 season, and he knows it can take time to reduce the swelling. 

"'Those kind of things, especially for a pitcher, it's not easy to get it going right away because that's my push-off leg,' Jimenez said Saturday. 'But the swelling has been going down.'" 

In another team development, the MLB Players Alumni Association gave the "Heart and Hustle" award to Orioles center fielder Adam Jones on July 22 for excellence on and off the field, per Dubroff: 

"Adam Jones continues to get recognized for his community work. On Tuesday, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association designated Jones as the Orioles' 'Heart and Hustle' award winner.

"'He represents all the best qualities of a teammate and competitor,' Brooks Robinson said. 'The way he plays the game sets an example for young people to follow.' 

"Former Orioles players voted on the award. One player from each major league team is chosen for their work on and off the field.'

 

"Fans, former and current players will vote to select the winner from the 30 team winners. No Oriole has won the award, which began in 2005. 

"Jones has been recognized for his off field work including sponsoring RBI (Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities) Leagues in Baltimore as well as furnishing a local Boys and Girls Club with computers."
