Very quietly, Ubaldo Jimenez is starting to pitch a little bit like the man that won 19 games two years ago, many of which came in the first half of the year for the Colorado Rockies. He has allowed eight runs in 18.0 frames this year, but he has been good enough to get the win in his last two starts. We know that the walks are just way too high with 11, but the 11 strikeouts is right in line with what we would want to see him throwing. Sure, Jimenez hasn’t historically been good here at Progressive Field, but he does have two wins in as many starts against the Royals. We just don’t like the way that Luke Hochevar is pitching right now, and in the end, we think that Cleveland notches its 10th win of the year in fine form.
April 25th MLB Free Pick Of The Day: Cleveland Indians -1.5 (+158)
