Hudson Belinsky of Baseball America reports that the Dodgers will sign right-hander Jair Jurrjens to a minor league deal.

The Dodgers apparently liked what they saw from Jurrjens during his stint with Team Netherlands in the recent World Baseball Classic. The 31-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014 as a member of the Rockies. He didn't pitch in affiliated ball last year.

Jair Jurrjens spun six innings of one-run ball Monday as Team Netherlands beat Team Israel in the WBC.

The only real blemish for Jurrjens was a solo homer by Nate Freiman in the bottom of the fourth inning. Jurrjens struck out five, walked none, and was backed by 12 runs on 15 hits from the Netherlands offense. The free agent right-hander may be able to pick up a minor league offer when the World Baseball Classic is through. He threw for Royals officials back in mid-February.

Jair Jurrjens threw for Royals officials on Monday in Surprise, Arizona.

Jurrjens last appeared in the majors in 2014, when he allowed 20 hits and 11 earned runs in 9 1/3 innings (two spot starts) with the Rockies. Kansas City could give him a non-guaranteed minor league deal, but there is nothing official yet on that front. Jurrjens turned 31 years old in late January.

Rockies signed RHP Jair Jurrjens to a minor league contract.

Jurrjens elected free agency back in October but eventually decided his best fit was a return to the Rockies. Though he's still only 28-years-old, he hasn't been a viable big league starter since the 2011 season and a return to that level seems unlikely. He'll compete for a spot in the Rockies rotation this spring.

Jair Jurrjens has elected free agency.

The veteran right-hander was outrighted off of the Rockies 40-man roster around mid-season after posting a 10.61 ERA and 2.46 WHIP in his two starts for the big league club. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.

Rockies sent RHP Jair Jurrjens outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Jurrjens had been designated for assignment, but he's cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. The veteran righty held a 10.61 ERA and 2.46 WHIP in two starts for the Rockies.

Rockies designated RHP Jair Jurrjens for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Ben Paulsen on the active roster. Jurrjens pitched for the Rockies earlier this month and posted a 10.61 ERA and 2.46 WHIP in two starts.

Rockies optioned RHP Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's clearing room for the return of Carlos Gonzalez (finger). Jurrjens posted a 10.61 ERA and 2.46 WHIP in two starts for the Rockies. It's possible he'll get another chance after the All-Star break if the club decides that Eddie Butler (shoulder) isn't ready yet.

Jair Jurrjens gave up three earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Padres.

Jurrjens surrendered eight hits and walked two in the rough outing, but the Rockies' bullpen and offense both performed well in the 6-3 victory. Jurrjens has a hideous 10.61 ERA and 2.46 WHIP through two starts. He is not long for Colorado's big league rotation.

Jair Jurrjens said that he's feeling better after getting checked out at the hospital for breathing issues after Friday's start against the Dodgers.

Jurrjens admitted that the high altitude in Colorado affected him was the reason for the difficulty in breathing. After his rough effort on the mound on Friday, it's unclear if he'll get a chance to make another trip through the Rockies rotation.

Jair Jurrjens was taken to a local hospital after Friday's start against the Dodgers because of breathing issues.

Jurrjens, who was acquired from the Reds earlier this week, was hit hard for eight runs on 12 hits and one walk over 4 2/3 innings on Friday. The Rockies should provide an update on his status soon.
Fri, Jul 4, 2014 11:56:00 PM

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Jair Jurrjens from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Jurrjens' first start in the majors in over a year will come Friday at Coors Field against Clayton Kershaw. The veteran right-hander has posted a 4.46 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and 27/13 K/BB ratio through 34 1/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level and shouldn't draw any attention in fantasy leagues.

Jair Jurrjens will be called up to start on Friday against the Dodgers.

Jurrjens was acquired from the Reds on Thursday as the Rockies looked for some depth given the bevy of injuries to their rotation. The veteran right-hander has posted a 4.46 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and 27/13 K/BB ratio through 34 1/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Rockies acquired RHP Jair Jurrjens from the Reds for INF Harold Riggins.

Jurrjens had posted an underwhelming 4.46 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and 27/13 K/BB ratio through 34 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Louisville. But the 28-year-old may still get a shot at some point with the big-league Rockies, who have the worst team ERA in MLB this season.
