|Report: Jair Jurrjens slated for Saturday|
|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Orioles pitcher Jair Jurrjens is expected to make his team debut Saturday against Tampa Bay, Fox Sports reports. Baltimore is in need of a starting pitcher with Wei-Yin Chen headed to the disabled list with an oblique injury and Jurrjens has enjoyed sound success in the minors.
In eight starts for Triple-A Norfolk this season, Jurrjens has registered a 4-1 record and 3.14 ERA while displaying improved command. The veteran right-hander has amassed 16 strikeouts and just two walks over his past three outings, completing at least seven innings in two games. Most importantly, he has also surrendered just two home runs over 51 2/3 total innings on the year.
|Jair Jurrjens an interesting AL-only play|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/22/13) Not much attention has been paid to him lately, but Jair Jurrjens has been pretty solid for Baltimore's Triple-A team in Norfolk. Jurrjens has made four starts, compiling a 3.00 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, striking out 13 batters.
Just on Norfolk alone, Jurrjens' stats aren't as good as Zach Britton's (1.98 ERA in three starts) and are barely better than Freddy Garcia's (3.57 ERA in three starts), but with Jake Arrieta getting demoted, the team needs a starter. And if the Orioles are geting tired of working in young arms with endless potential who fail to deliver, they may opt to pass on Britton, 25, for the 27-year-old Jurrjens instead. He's gone six innings or more three times this season and, for all the ups and downs of his career, still sports a 3.62 career ERA in the majors.
Jurrjens probably won't surpass the "serviceable" designation -- and there's no guarantee he gets the call ahead of the other arms -- but for an AL-only owner with a decimated staff, Jurrjens might be a sly pickup ahead of the team's announcement, as you can probably add him now for much less than you'd be able to if they announce him as the starter in a few days.
|What a difference a couple years makes. In July 2011, Jair Jurrjens was in the running to start the All-Star game, having compiled a 12-3 record and 1.87 ERA in 16 starts for the Braves. In 18 appearances (including 17 starts) since then, he's 4-7 with a 6.42 ERA. Jurrjens' downfall would be easier to understand if he came out of nowhere in 2011, but he was a mainstay in the Braves' starting rotation from 2008 right up until last year. At this time last year, the general belief was that a knee injury contributed to Jurrjens' second-half collapse in 2011, but he didn't rebound the way many had hoped. Even at Triple-A Gwinnett, where he made 14 starts, he had a 4.98 ERA last year. Jurrjens' track record is promising enough that the Orioles have signed on to give him a shot at winning a rotation spot in 2013, but the 27-year-old is too much of a Hail Mary for most Fantasy owners. Even when at his best, his poor strikeout rate made him more of a late-rounder in standard mixed leagues. (Updated 1/29/13)|
