The moves leave Baltimore with 13 pitchers and a short bench for its current roster makeup, a move that manager Buck Showalter said the team had been kicking around for some time.
Jimenez, who welcomed his first child -- a daughter named Jimevi -- on Saturday, said he didn't pay attention much to his name circulating in trade rumors. The right-hander, who will get the start Thursday, is more concerned now with getting back on track after not being on a regular schedule since the first half of the season.
"Last couple days I've been throwing, playing catch whenever I could," Jimenez said. "Today I threw a little bit, but after that I don't know what's going to happen [schedule-wise]."
Kim, who was on a rehab stint for Double-A Bowie, is coming off a hamstring injury he sustained in the final game of the first half. This was his first time on the DL. The 28-year-old has batted .329/.410/.454 (50-for-152) with 10 doubles, three home runs, and 11 RBIs over 46 games with the Orioles this season.
Borbon, 30, hit .222/.222/.222 (2-for-9) with a run scored in five Major League games. Alvarez, who will continue at Triple-A Norfolk, is expected to play winter ball for Venezuela, Showalter said.
