Braves Rewind: Whatever happened to...Jair Jurrjens?

Let's take a look at Braves from years past. Julio Teheran tossed a one-hit shutout for the Braves yesterday. The last Braves pitcher to do that: Jair Jurrjens.

Jair Jurrjens is on the comeback trail. The 28-year-old righthander signed a minor league deal with Cincinnati in late May and is currently pitching for Triple-A Louisville.

Cincinnati Reds Sign Jair Jurrjens to Minor League Deal

The 28-year-0ld Jair Jurrjens is rehabbing (no, not Lindsey Lohan rehabbing) from knee surgery that he had back in September.
