BALTIMORE -- Ubaldo Jimenez made his first rehab start for Class A short-season Aberdeen on Tuesday, going 4 2/3 innings. The Orioles' right-hander could make another start for a higher affiliate next week as he continues to work his way back from a right ankle injury.

Jimenez allowed one unearned run on five hits and three walks, along with a wild pitch. He also struck out three.

Manager Buck Showalter wouldn't commit before Tuesday's game whether Jimenez would need a second outing, but given how well the rotation has pitched it's very likely. Jimenez also hasn't appeared in a game for the Orioles since July 5. He went 3-8 with a 4.52 ERA in 18 games in the first half and will pose a roster crunch for the O's, who have five starters that have pitched well as of late.
