ORIOLES SIGN RHP JURRJENS TO MINOR LEAGUE CONTRACT
SARASOTA, Fla. -- 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.

I have a feeling this season he will get 30 wins in the AL, NL and 70 saves (traded at the deadline to the Dodgers). Once he goes over to the NL and starts to hit, he will have 30 homeruns, 40 steals and Im feeling 12 triples.
