Buck Showalter released his ALDS roster today. Surprise: Ubaldo Jimenez is on it, pretty much certainly as a long reliever. He took the place, one presumes, of either Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland, leaving the O’s with only two lefties in the pen. Which can work, I suppose, given that the Tigers’ big threats, especially off the bench, are right-handed.
