This news comes qualifies as too little, too late for the Braves this season, but it sounds like Jair Jurrjens will at least be healthy heading into the offseason.
Sidelined since mid-September with a partially torn meniscus in his right knee, Jurrjens threw six innings in an instructional league game yesterday and reported no problems. Had the Braves gotten past the Giants in the NLDS it’s possible Jurrjens could have been an option for the NLCS.
“Everything went well,” general manager Frank Wren told Mark Bowman of MLB.com. “He threw well, fielded his position and covered first base. He didn’t have any problems.”
