Just because it doesn’t count doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
Jair Jurrjens, who already had his spring debut pushed back because of a rainout on Thursday, tossed two innings of scoreless ball against the Pirates on Friday before the game was called due to rain.
Jurrjens threw 29 pitches over the two innings, 18 of them for strikes. He even struck out Andrew McCutchen looking on three pitches to start the game.
“I just wanted to throw strikes,” Jurrjens said. “My main concern was
to throw strikes and make it through it as quick as I could.”
As long as there’s no problems with his shoulder, Jurrjens will start on short rest against the Marlins on Tuesday.
