Ubaldo Jimenez finished for season
CHICAGO -- Cleveland Indians right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez won't pitch again this season because of a sprained right ankle. Jimenez was examined Monday in Cleveland after having some problems in his previous two starts. He was 9-17 with a 5.55 ERA.
Left-hander Rafael Perez had arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder Wednesday in Wilmington, Del. Perez is expected to begin throwing in two months and recover in time for spring training. He was 0-1 with a 3.52 ERA in eight appearances and last pitched April 25.
Right-handed pitcher Roberto Hernandez, bothered by a sprained right ankle, threw 60 pitches during a four-inning simulated game Wednesday. The Indians will evaluate Hernandez on Friday before deciding if he can pitch again this season.
