Baltimore Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will resume his minor league rehab assignment Tuesday after being scratched from a scheduled start last week.

Jimenez, who is recovering from a right ankle sprain, will start for the team's short-season rookie team in Aberdeen because it is the only affiliate playing locally. He is expected to make two or three rehab starts before coming off the disabled list.

According to, Jimenez will throw about 65 pitches. He last pitched on July 5 and sprained the ankle a few days later.

Jimenez is 3-8 with a 4.52 ERA this season and leads the American League with 60 walks allowed.
