Which Team Is The Early Winner In The Ubaldo Jimenez Trade: Indians Or Rockies?

It's been three weeks since the Cleveland Indians and the Colorado Rockies made the trade involving Ubaldo Jimenez. Which team is winning the trade right now? Let's take a look at where the major players in the deal stand right now:

↵

Ubaldo Jimenez is 1-1 in four starts for the Indians. But he's been hittable and looking far too human in the process. The Indians have lost three of those four starts, Jimenez allowing 18 runs in 13 innings. The other start, his second with the Indians, saw him surrender three runs in eight innings. Since then he saw five runs score in five innings and eight runs in three-plus innings. In the latter, Jimenez served up two home runs for five of the seven runs scored in the third inning.

Alex White made a few rehab starts and will make his Rockies debut on Tuesday against the Houston Astros.

↵

Drew Pomeranz, who had a shot at a September call-up, underwent an appendectomy over the weekend and is likely out for the rest of the season.

↵

Seems like the Rockies are winning this by just a bit. White's making his Rockies debut this season and Pomeranz had a dominant Double-A start for the Rockies before the appendectomy. Jimenez is struggling, just as his team is trying to stay in contention in the AL Central.

But this deal is still a long way off from being judged correctly.
