agent Jair Jurrjens earlier this offseason, but that deal is at risk of falling
through due to health concerns surrounding the right-hander’s knee, reports
Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun.
Right-hander Jair Jurrjens could be on that list, too. As of
Thursday evening, the Orioles were still receiving...
The Baltimore Orioles signed RP Jair Jurrjens to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million dollars this past January, but now it appears that his season could be in jeopardy with Baltimore.

The Baltimore Sun is reporting this...
The Baltimore Orioles and Jair Jurrjens have come to terms on a one-year contract for 2013. Jurrjens was non-tendered by the Braves earlier this offseason.
Jurrjens will have a base salary of $1.5 million, incentives could push the deal to $4 million reports CBSsports..
Last season Jurrjens was 3-4 with a 6.89 ERA at the big league level and spent a good part of the year in the minors...
There is very little that can explain what has happened to former Braves RHP Jair Jurrjens. It was only 2011 when Jurrjens was an All Star pitcher and some could make the case that he could have started the game. He struggled in three of his last four starts that season, before his season was finished after his August 30th start. Jurrjens and the Braves agreed to a $5.5 million...
We might have seen the last of Jair Jurrjens in an Atlanta Braves uniform.
Jurrjens long fall from the heaven he experienced in the first half of 2011 reached another, once-unthinkable low point on Sunday. He showed again that hes not fooling major league hitters.
The Braves cant afford to send him out every fifth day, especially with a staff that has given up at least nine runs...
This is exactly what Jair Jurrjens needed.
In turn, this is exactly what the Braves wanted to see from Jurrjens.
And it would have been tough to find anyone who could have predicted this kind of a performance from a guy who spent the past eight weeks in minor league exile.
I thought he would get rocked and rolled and be gone by the third inning.
But there was Jurrjens on Friday...

There seems to be a lot of stuff floating around Jair Jurrjens brain right now.
He seems to be worried about his injury-prone right knee, his mechanics, his wildness, maybe even when his name was on everybodys trade list this winter. Whatevers up there, its keeping him from focusing on the really important things, like opposing hitters.
He mentioned his mind isnt where it should...
Jair Jurrjens appeared to be heading to his best season as a major leaguer in 2011. He was 12-3 with a NL-best 1.87 ERA and pitched 1-23 scoreless innings in the All-Star Game, but then his season fell apart.
His surgically repaired right knee began bothering him and he won only one more game before the Braves shut him down for the final month.
Jurrjens finished with a 13-6 record...
When the Detroit Tigers traded pitcher Jair Jurrjens and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez to the Atlanta Braves for shortstop Edgar Renteria it soon became one of the more regrettable Tigers trades in recent memory.
Although Hernandez really never panned out, Jurrjens certainly went on to become a nice addition for the Braves while Renteria continued to age and prove why he wasn’t...
