Jair Jurrjens’ return to the majors was a brief one, as the Orioles sent him back to Triple-A to make room on the roster for Miguel Gonzalez coming off the disabled list.

Jurrjens predictably struggled in his first big-league start since July of 2012, allowing four runs in five innings against the Rays. He had a nice-looking ERA at Triple-A before the call-up, but a 36/15 K/BB ratio in 52 innings suggested Jurrjens hadn’t been particularly impressive.

Gonzalez returns after missing the past three weeks with a thumb injury and starts tonight against the Yankees, at Camden Yards.
