Nice to see Jair pitching well at AAA. I'll be very interested to see what he can do once he inevitably is called upon at the Major League level.

AAA Season: 3-1, 2.56 era, 38.2 ip, 33 hits, 1 hr, 14 bb's, 26 k's, 0.51 G/F

 

Went 8 innings in his last outing, still too many fly's. Probably on the verge of coming up per the next opportunity.

I am excited to see him pitch on Saturday. I have more faith in him than Britton, Arrieta, Stinson, etc.

That's an interesting thought.   I guess I have more faith in Jair than Britton, Arrieta, Stinson, etc.  But that's not saying much.  For example, I have less faith in Jair than in, say, Carlos Zambrano who the Phillies just signed.


¡Hasta la vista, pelota!

I wouldn't have minded if they signed Zambrano. I guess Buck didn't want to have a personality like that though.

We should be able to see fairly early if he is fully healthy, with no issues with the knee. Does he have his movement back? All-Star appearances only mean so much, but he's only 2 years removed from an AS appearance.

 

I don't think anyone expects the guy that was outstanding in the 1st half of 2011, but if he has his control, and has some movement... he could be a serviceable starter.

 

Seeing where he is will be interesting either way. I like that he was able to get his feet wet this year with those 51 innings at AAA.

I'm very curious to see how he pitches Saturday. Especially since this will be my first game this year at the Yard. A no-hitter would be nice, but I'll settle for 3 runs or less with 7+ innings pitched.

While my primary purpose here is as a Ravens fan, I follow the Braves religiously, which means I've seen Jurrjens enough to have a fairly informed opinion on him. I don't mean to tell you he's going to fail miserably, but his success in Atlanta was based on both his command and a velocity in the low (and occasionally even mid!) 90's. He never recovered his lost velocity following the injury to his knee. His command is sharp sometimes even now. Still, unless his velocity is above 88/87, the difference in his fastball and his change up is basically only 5 mph. He's looked very hittable, even his AAA numbers are mildly concerning to me. His HR/FB rate is unsustainably low. I have a difficult time believing in 'weak contact' inducing pitchers.

I didn't watch the game on Saturday but I listened to it and it sounded like he did pretty good other than the one bad inning.

Regardless if he stays with the organization or not I still think it was a good signing. He was worth taking a shot on a minor league deal.
