Jair Jurrjens pronounced himself “ready to go” after throwing six innings of two-run ball last night in a rehab start at Triple-A and is now scheduled to return from a strained oblique muscle Saturday against the Mets.
Jurrjens threw 81 pitches in his rehab outing, allowing four hits and striking out three, and afterward told Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he “didn’t even think about” the oblique injury.
He missed the final two weeks of last season and the playoffs with a knee injury and began this year on the disabled list, so Jurrjens hasn’t started a big-league game in seven months.
