The Cleveland Indians have shut down Ubaldo Jimenez for the remainder of the season with a right ankle injury.

The Cleveland Indians have shut down Ubaldo Jimenez for the remainder of the season with a right ankle sprain, reports Jordan Bastian of MLB.com:

The ankle injury has caused Jimenez "issues" over his past two starts. The 28-year-old lasted only 4 1/3 innings in his most recent appearance against the Kansas City Royals, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks.

Jimenez’s struggles with the Indians have continued in 2012, as the southpaw maintained an ERA of 5.55 with 7.3 strikeouts per nine innings compared to 4.8 walks per nine innings. His ugly numbers have led to a league-leading 17 losses on the year.

The Indians acquired Jimenez from the Colorado Rockies last summer for a package that included top prospects Alex White and Drew Pomeranz. Prior to joining Cleveland, he had maintained an ERA of 3.66 over six seasons with Colorado. Since the trade, he’s posted an ERA of 5.43.
