Jair Jurrjens MRI comes back negative; which is a positive

0 Comments

Good news from Atlanta: Jair Jurrjens’ MRI results are back and there is no structural damage in his shoulder:

Jurrjens said that the Braves doctors didn’t give him a specific
timetable about when he could start pitching again.  But he’s under the
impression that he could begin a throwing program within the next few
days and still be in line to be ready to make his first
scheduled regular season start.

“It’s
a big relief,” Jurrjens said.  “I wasn’t worried.  But any time they
start talking about having to have an MRI, it’s not something you want
to hear.”

As a Braves fan who was doing everything he could to talk himself into Kris Medlen in the 2010 rotation, I share his relief.
