Four years ago, Ubaldo Jimenez was a Cy Young award candidate with 19 wins and the first no-hitter in Colorado Rockies franchise history.

Since being traded to Cleveland on July 31, 2011, Jimenez has a combined 13 wins and has steadily fallen from the ranks of elite pitchers. On Tuesday, Jimenez may have hit a new low. At home against the Boston Red Sox, Jimenez threw 59 total pitches, 28 for strikes and gave up two hits, walked five batters, and allowed seven runs in 1 1/3 innings before being pulled from the game.

His ERA was already at a career high of 6.97 and after Tuesday’s game ballooned up to 11.25.

Since joining Cleveland in 2011, Jimenez is just 13-22 with an ERA of 7.25.
