I've watched him pitch and he has looked pretty solid, but control seems to be the issue with him. Also will he be in the rotation still when Hirsh comes back? I am intrigued by his potential.

They should probably dump Lopez or Move someone into the bullpen. I think he'll stay up. The rox's need pitching desperately and can use long relievers more so then other teams

Jimenez has impressed me in his starts so far this season. He's been improving start after start, and yesterday he was able to earn his first ML victory.

Lopez is going to miss his next start, and may even go on the DL, which keeps Ubaldo in the rotation. Even with a healthy rotation, I think he's proven himself worthy to stay in the rotation.

He has pitched better in Colorado this year than he has in AAA, which seems to be a big warning sign. He has 62 BB in 103 IP for a BB/p of 5.42, including 11 wild pitches. That is in AAA. He has walked 4 per 9 so far in the majors, which is still quite poor. In his minor league career he has a BB per 9 of 4.5. I'd be surprised if teams don't wise up soon. He does nearly have a K/IP in the minors though so he is worthing watching and he could be a good source of K's going forward, if nothing else.
