It comes as no surprise that Ubaldo Jimenez will be the Rockies ace for the upcoming season, but the Rockies made it official last week.
He had a Cy Young worthy first half last season, but fizzled in the second half. Jimenez was in fact the National League starter in the all-star game. He basically had no run support in the second half of the season, but still finished with a 19-8 record and 2.88 ERA. He also made the prestigious Dominican Baseball Guy all-Dominican team for 2010.
Ubaldo is from Nagua, DR.
