Jair Jurrjens has spent most of this season at Triple-A while not pitching particularly well and today the Orioles designated him for assignment.
Jurrjens’ career was derailed by injuries and he’s gone from a 25-year-old All-Star for the Braves in 2011 to being available for very little as a free agent this offseason to being placed on waivers now.
Jurrjens appeared in just two games for the Orioles and in 16 starts at Triple-A his 4.18 ERA and 52/24 K/BB ratio in 95 innings hardly shows someone capable of getting big-league hitters out at this point. He seems like a good bet to clear waivers.
