Ubaldo Jimenez Far From Dominant Form

"A scout employed by an opposing team who watched Ubaldo Jimenez struggle against the Reds on Saturday almost couldn't believe his radar gun.

"His fastball was 89-91 [mph]," the scout said. "He might have touched 92 once or twice, but his slider was flat. He also looked like his mind was somewhere else. I haven't seen him like that in two years."

Since being traded from the Rockies to the Indians midway through the 2011 season, Jimenez seldom has shown the 97-98 mph fastball that enabled him to dominate National League hitters the first half of 2010. However, he consistently threw 93 and 94 in his starts for the Tribe."
