When the Rockies acquired Jair Jurrjens from the Reds earlier this week it was seemingly just a Triple-A move, since Jurrjens hasn’t been effective in the majors since 2011 and wasn’t even much good in the minors this year.
Jurrjens made the All-Star team in 2011 as a 25-year-old, but he’s been an injured mess since then, including a 4.46 ERA and 27/13 K/BB ratio in 34 innings at Triple-A for the Reds before they swapped him to the Rockies.
