Jair Jurrjens left this afternoon’s start against the Cardinals after just one inning because of a strained hamstring.
Jurrjens allowed three runs in the opening frame, at which point reliever Kris Medlen got loose in a hurry out in the bullpen and replaced him to begin the second inning.
Off to a rough start even before the injury, Jurrjens came into today’s game at 0-2 with a 5.48 ERA and 15/11 K/BB ratio in four outings after ranking third in the NL with a 2.60 ERA last season.
Unless they stage a comeback against Adam Wainwright, the Braves are in line for their ninth straight loss after beginning the season 8-5.
