Report: Jair Jurrjens slated for Saturday

Jair Jurrjens an interesting AL-only play


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2013) 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. 

 


Jair Jurrjens solid in first start at Triple-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) Orioles minor leaguer Jair Jurrjens made his first start for Triple-A Norfolk Saturday night, reports MASNSports.com. He held Durham to a hit in six scoreless innings.

"It wasn't quite as effusive as I thought it was going to be," Showalter said. 

Jurrjens would be a candidate to join the Orioles' rotation should anything happen to one of the team's starters.
