Jair Jurrjens was placed on the DL with shoulder funniness. No tear I guess, and Jurrjens was shut down last year with some neck stiffness – but that was sustained in a car accident if I recall. It doesn’t sound serious, but the cautious route is certainly in order. Tearing a labrum would be devastating, and even a compensation injury from altered mechanics should be avoided.
Zach Miner is back with the team and in the pen. It would be normal rest for Virgil Vasquez to pitch in Jurrjens next turn on August 31st, but another roster move would need to be made. (Miner could be optioned out for a day I suppose). Or it could be Chad Durbin getting another turn.
