A scout employed by an opposing team who watched Ubaldo Jimenez struggle against the Reds on Saturday almost couldn't believe his radar gun.

"His fastball was 89-91 [mph]," the scout said. "He might have touched 92 once or twice, but his slider was flat. He also looked like his mind was somewhere else. I haven't seen him like that in two years."

Since being traded from the Rockies to the Indians midway through the 2011 season, Jimenez seldom has shown the 97-98 mph fastball that enabled him to dominate National League hitters the first half of 2010. However, he consistently threw 93 and 94 in his starts for the Tribe.
