4. Ubaldo Jiminez
Prior to being traded from the Colorado Rockies to the Cleveland Indians in 2011, Tom Verducci wrote in Sports Illustrated that: “Jiminez has terrific stuff, a powerful frame and the work ethic of a blast furnace.”
But noted that playing a high number of innings in the altitude of Colorado was taking its toll.
In 2013 Jiminez decided not to take up his option and enter free agency. He has a career ERA of 3.92 and 1,172 strikeouts.
