According to Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jair Jurrjens threw his second bullpen session in the past three days Friday and said his ailing right knee felt well enough to pitch in a game.
“Some pitches I feel it, some pitches I don’t,” Jurrjens said. “It was good.”
Braves manager Bobby Cox said “it’s just good to know that I think he could pitch,” and suggested that Jurrjens might make a relief appearance during this weekend’s series against the Phillies.
Jurrjens hasn’t faced live hitters since September 14 due to a slight tear of the meniscus in his right knee, so the Braves still need to evaluate whether he would be included on the potential postseason roster.
The most likely scenario is that Jurrjens pitches if or when the Braves wrap up the Wild Card. He’s not pitching any important innings. That’s for sure.
