Jair Jurrjens to undergo minor knee surgery next week

Oct 12, 2010, 2:15 PM EST

Jair Jurrjens threw six innings in an instructional league game yesterday and afterward general manager Frank Wren explained that “everything went well” and “he didn’t have any problems.”
That may have been true, but Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that Jurrjens will undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair the partially torn meniscus in his right knee next week. It’s considered a minor surgery and Jurrjens is expected to be out of commission for just a few days, leaving him plenty of time to get fully healthy for spring training.
After posting a 2.60 ERA in 33 starts last season Jurrjens was limited to just 20 starts this year and went 7-6 with a 4.64 ERA and 86/52 K/BB ratio in 116 innings.

    Hopefully the repair will allow his mechanics to reset and relieve the pressure on his shoulder so that can stabilize also. Recall he came to camp complaining of shoulder issues this past Spring.
