The Colorado Rockies have placed 27-year old righty starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez on the 15-day disabled list due to a cuticle cut on his right thumb. Jimenez has started 1 game so far this year for the Rockies and he was 0-0 with a 7.50 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. The Rockies decided is was better to be safe than sorry with Jimenez as they need him for the long haul. The Rockies have called up 25-year old righty Greg Reynolds to replace Jimenez in the starting lineup for a couple of weeks. The Rockies better hope he’s a lot better than he was in 2010. Reynolds pitched in 14 games (13 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 2-8 with a 8.13 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP. He have up 83 hits (14 of which were homers) last year in only 62 innings pitched as batters were running up to the plate against him! The Rockies need Jimenez to be healthy and ready to go when his 15 days are up on the D.L.
