Orioles Sign Jair Jurrjens To Minor League Deal

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Jair Jurrjens and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The move was announced Friday, more than three weeks after the sides reportedly reached a deal.

Jurrjens, an NL All-Star in 2011 with Atlanta, is 53-37 with a 3.62 ERA in six major league seasons, five with the Braves. The 27-year-old right-hander was demoted to the minors last season, when he was hampered by a strained groin and finished 3-4 with a 6.89 ERA.

Jurrjens has a history of knee and groin injuries. Atlanta did not offer him a contract after last season.
