SAN DIEGO (AP) — Colorado Rockies right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez says he has been traded to the Cleveland Indians.

Jimenez was pulled Saturday night from his start after pitching one inning against the San Diego Padres.

Jimemez says he was surprised. "Everybody knew it, even me," he said after his outing.

Jimenez, who allowed four runs on two hits with four walks and two strikeouts, said he was surprised he even pitched in the game.
