BALTIMORE (AP) Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle.

Baltimore manager Buck Showalter says the pitcher twisted his ankle in a parking lot a couple days ago.

Jimenez last pitched Saturday in Boston. He was scheduled to pitch against the New York Yankees on Saturday, but will be replaced by either Chris Tillman or Kevin Gausman.

It's been a rough season for Jimenez, who signed a $50 million, four-year deal during the offseason. He's 3-8 with a 4.52 ERA overall and 1-4 with a 5.79 ERA at home.

Jimenez appeared to be back on track after he gave up an unearned run in eight innings against Texas on June 30. But he didn't last five innings in his last start.
