Jair Jurrjens cuts bullpen session short because of knee pain

Sep 24, 2010, 5:46 PM EDT

Jair Jurrjens had to end today’s bullpen session after just 10 pitches because of pain in his injured right knee, which means Brandon Beachy is likely to take his place again Sunday versus the Nationals.
Jurrjens had hoped to pitch through a minor cartilage tear, but described the injury as “like somebody is stabbing you.” Obviously his status for the playoffs is now in serious question.
Beachy lasted just 4.1 innings in his MLB debut Monday, taking a loss against the Phillies by allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one.

    The second persistent injury he’s endured after coming to camp with shoulder problems. Commonly, leg injuries in pitchers coming after arm and shoulder problems indicate that the shoulder or arm problem is persisting. And it’s no surprise he has shoulder issues. He was pushed to over 400 innings in his combined age 22 and 23 years, with the big increase coming at age 22.
