Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that the team plans to keep Jimenez in the rotation, putting the right-hander on track for a start Sunday in Houston, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxOnline.com reports. "Jimenez's next start is on Sunday, and we'll see what happens when we get there. That's when he's scheduled to start again," Showalter said. "We take each day as it comes, and see where we are as a pitching staff after each outing."
Connaughton is weighing his options for the future, and the Orioles have once again opened the door for the pitcher to leave the NBA and join the MLB organization, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
