Yahoo! Sports' Tim Brown reports that Jair Jurrjens is "getting some free-agent love."
Brown also reveals that Jurrjens underwent knee surgery in September that requires 8-10 weeks of recovery. The right-hander has undergone multiple surgeries in the past and worked on minor league deals for the Orioles and Tigers this past season. He'll surely have to settle for another non-guaranteed pact. Tue, Nov 12, 2013 11:25:00 PM

Tigers signed RHP Jair Jurrjens to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Toledo.

Jurrjens was designated for assignment by the Orioles on July 12 after posting a 4.18 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over his first 16 starts at Triple-A Norfolk. It's hard to see him getting a shot in the majors with Detroit.

Jair Jurrjens has elected free agency.

Jurrjens was DFA'd last week, but declined his outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk. He is now eligible to sign with another team and will attempt to reestablish his career on a minor league contract.

Orioles designated RHP Jair Jurrjens for assignment.

The move was made in order to free up a 40-man roster spot for Jairo Asencio. Jurrjens has thrown just 7 1/3 innings for the O's this season and hasn't done terribly well at Triple-A Norfolk, posting a 4.18 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 16 starts. He's likely to clear waivers, but the O's might opt to just cut him loose.

Orioles optioned RHP Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A Norfolk.

Jurrjens was designated for assignment on Sunday, but he had a minor league option left and will remain on the Orioles' 40-man roster. The right-hander threw 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief on Saturday against the Yankees and should be back up in the bigs soon.

Orioles designated RHP Jair Jurrjens for assignment.

Jurrjens allowed four runs over 7 1/3 innings during his two appearances with the O's this season and has posted a 4.06 ERA and 1.25 WHIP at Triple-A. He had options remaining, but Baltimore needed to clear room on the 40-man roster for the arrival of Brian Roberts.

Orioles recalled RHP Jair Jurrjens from Triple-A Norfolk.

Jurrjens will provide bullpen depth behind starter Zach Britton on Saturday. Travis Ishikawa will likely be designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Jair Jurrjens (thumb) is scheduled to return to the rotation at Triple-A Norfolk this Friday.

Jurrjens was scratched from his previous turn because of some mild soreness in his right thumb. It was never a serious concern for the Norfolk medical staff. The righty has a 4.09 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 44/20 K/BB ratio through 66 innings this season in the International League.

Jair Jurrjens is no longer listed as Saturday's starter with Triple-A Norfolk.

Jurrjens is currently dealing with a sore right thumb, so he has presumably been scratched. It's not known when he'll pitch next.

Jair Jurrjens is expected to miss his next start at Triple-A due to a thumb injury.

He's dealing with right thumb carpal metacarpal synovitis. Jurrjens is considered day-to-day, so he shouldn't be out long.

Orioles optioned RHP Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A Norfolk.

Jurrjens allowed four earned runs over five innings Saturday in a spot start against the Rays. The 27-year-old right-hander will probably get another shot soon.
Tue, May 21, 2013 03:54:00 PM

Jair Jurrjens surrendered four earned runs over five innings Saturday in the Orioles' loss to the Rays.

It was his debut for the O's and he did not look sharp. Jurrjens gave up six hits and a walk, throwing only 75 pitches (51 of which were strikes). He's not even worth stashing outside of deep AL-only leagues.

Orioles purchased the contract of RHP Jair Jurrjens from Triple-A Norfolk.

Jurrjens will make his season debut Saturday against the Rays. He posted a 3.14 ERA in eight starts at the Triple-A level and will get his chance in the Orioles' rotation with Wei-Yin Chen on the disabled list. The 27-year-old right-hander should be monitored in AL-only leagues.
Sat, May 18, 2013 01:00:00 PM

Jair Jurrjens will be called up from Triple-A Norfolk to start Saturday against the Rays.

Jurrjens will take the place of Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) in the starting rotation. The 27-year-old right-hander has a 3.14 ERA and 36/15 K/BB ratio in 51 2/3 innings over eight starts this season in Triple-A. It's been a while since he has enjoyed any success in the big leagues, so most fantasy owners can afford to wait and see.
Tue, May 14, 2013 02:41:00 PM

Orioles reassigned RHP Jair Jurrjens to minor league camp.

Jurrjens struggled with injuries and effectiveness this spring. He'll open 2013 at Triple-A Norfolk but could eventually be an option for the major league rotation.
