Hanson has the more promising baseline, but I fear that there is some underlying structural damage that will create an uphill battle (he has lost 3 mph from his FB in two years). I was on board with the mechanical changes that he was going to make out of spring training, but he seemed to scrap the idea early in the season and reverted back to his old delivery. I prefer Hanson in a vacuum, but Jurrjens' approach is less dependent on the heat, and his injuries are lower-body in nature, so I would give him the better odds of regaining his previous level of effectiveness (with the caveat that he was never as good as his 2011 ERA suggested).

(jlarsen from chicago)
With the caveat that I did less than two seconds of research, some interesting names to me are Kyle Blanks, George Kottaras, Nyjer Morgan, Mark Reynolds, Brendan Ryan, Gaby Sanchez, Geovany Soto, Ian Stewart, Drew Stubbs, Dallas Braden, Philip Humber, Tommy Hunter, Jair Jurrjens, Mike Pelfrey, and Jerome Williams.

2012-07-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ive recently acquired joey votto in a ss league and been offered jj and zimmermann. what are your thoughts for jj in the second half.
(j from some yankee town)
Depends on who J.J. is. If it's Putz, I think he'll improve a little but not enough to be interesting. If it's Hardy, he also is capable of better things. If it's Josh Johnson, same thing, but with perpetual injury risk. Who else is there? J.J. Hoover. Jon Jay. Jair Jurrjens. John Jaso. Jim Johnson. I'm not getting warm and fuzzy about any of these guys. So I guess it doesn't depend on who J.J. is. Good chance of small improvement, but nothing exciting. I wouldn't trade Votto for Zimmermann and anyone with the initials J.J. (Geoff Young)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long do you expect Jair Jurrjens to stay in Triple-A Gwinnett? What kind of trade value does he have right now?
(Meathead from Chicago)
He's lost velocity, makes more than $5 million, and just got demoted to the minors. I wouldn't count on him having much value right now. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-03-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)When will the Braves tweak their organizational philosophy. They are always overflowing with young arms, but they refuse to trade any of them for bats, which they usually lack. Today comes word that Arodys Vizcaino might need Tommy John. They missed the boat again.
(Kyran from Malone, NY)
To be fair, it appears Atlanta did try to trade Jair Jurrjens this offseason. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-02-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braves starting rotation on opening day looks like....
(Trey from Texas)
Good question. Tim Hudson just said he's going to miss the first month, so my best guess is that Jair Jurrjens, Tommy Hanson, Brandon Beachy and Mike Minor are all in there, with Randall Delgado, Julio Teheran, and perhaps Kris Medlen competing for the five spot. Wouldn't surprise me at all if the kids were to start the season in the minors because of the way that April off days limit fifth starters anyway. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)Ideally, how does your rotation look in 2013? Hanson, Teheran, Vizcaino, Minor, Beachy/Delgado?
(anello52 from Chicago)
It's so hard to predict what young pitchers will do from start-to-start let alone year-to-year. All six of those pitchers you mentioned are exciting young options and we are glad they are in our organization. You didn't mention Jair Jurrjens, who some people feel was the best pitcher in the first half of the 2011 season. (John Coppolella)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on Jair Jurrjens' future please.
(Frug from UIUC)
There were some who thought his 2008 season would be his best; obviously, he chose to disagree. He suffers from some of the biases against "short" right-handers, and he isn't throwing any harder. Still, he outperformed Lowe (and Kawakami). It seems crazy that even before this season, two of his top comps were Greg Maddux and Dave Stieb, two of the best "short" right-handers of the past generation. It also suggests how extraordinary Jurrjens already is, which is where all the doubt comes from. Could he really be that good? I don't think we can say yes or no with anything like the same sort of authority as we can with more typical players. I'd take my chances with him, certainly. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Joe. Joba's poor command and diminished velocity: a) poor mechanics, b) exhaustion, c) last year's shoulder problems have changed him forever, d) something else?
(Joe V. from Washington, DC)
First of all, he should have diminished velocity. You don't throw as hard making 3x starts as you do throwing 80 IP out of the pen. Secondly, I hate how they handled him this year, and while I can respect the effort to try something different, it failed, and it really seemed to mess with him. I give him something of a pass for the last two months.

There's such an expectations issue, and we saw that with Buchholz as well. Young pitchers don't always have the Jair Jurrjens launch. Long answer short, if the Yankees take the training wheels off Chamberlain, he'll give them 190-200 IP and an ERA around 3.50. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Braves do with their rotation in the off season? If the Braves pick up Hudson's $12 million option the Braves have 6 quality starting pitchers and pending free agents at closer #1, closer #1a, first base and possibly 3rd base.
(Frug from UIUC)
Well, the Braves are a very cost-conscious team during this era of corporate ownership, so I wouldn't put it past them to NOT pick up Hudson's options given their other needs. That said, I think it's quite possible they would pick it up and explore the trade market for Javy Vazquez or Jair Jurrjens, both of whom might be at their all-time peaks in value. It's a nice problem to have. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)For overall career value, this point on, who would you rather have Edinson Volquez or a pitching prospect ranked around 80th on Goldstein's top 100 list next year? Neither will likely pitch next year, both have some risk of development, both have some upside. I guess the question boils down to how much you believe that Edinson can regain his status from the injury. I am in a strat league, I could either keep Volquez or cut him and draft someone in the 80th range on Goldstein's next list.
(LindInMoskva from DC)
Volquez will miss 2010, but most pitchers come back from TJ to previous level. That's a major league pitcher with some upside. He'll be 28. Looking back to Goldstein's 2008 list (not 2009), guys at that level are Deolis Guerra, Radhames Liz, Max Scherzer, Jair Jurrjens, Aaron Poreda, and Greg Reynolds. Even with a year of development, we're looking at two guys who have established themselves at the MLB level, plus Poreda who's an upside guy. I'd probably take Poreda and Jurrjens over Volquez right now, Scherzer's a toss up, but then you have to figure out the "bust risk." Which of those guys would I have picked LAST year and am I confident that I can pick correctly? Kevin's an expert and had Poreda under Liz ... I think that bust risk is huge, so I'd almost always go with the guy I know can pitch. (Will Carroll)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you just forgot about Jair Jurrjens when you talked about the Braves rotation for 2010 or you anticipating a trade? Related, do you think the Braves will pick up Hudson's option? They already have to deal with fact that their two closers, set up man and first baseman are all eligible for free agency.
(Frug from UIUC)
I love Jurrjens, but in that rotation, he's the #5 even though he'd be a #3 in most other rotations. I just don't see him repeating the performance this season, and I own him in a strat league. (Eric Seidman)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have trouble when people talk about #3 or #4 starters. What exactly does that mean, practically speaking? Not the rotation spot, exactly, but the abstract label as applied to an average guy with ups and downs like everybody else? Is there really that much difference between slots 1 and 2, 2 and 3, 3 and 4, and so on?
(Christopher from Nashville)
When I use the terms it's more to describe a guy who isn't going to be a perennial Cy Young Award contender or all star, but who does more than provide below average production in a lot of innings (see: Suppan, Garland). So someone like Jair Jurrjens I would say I can see him being a #3, or middle of the rotation starter. I'm not saying his numbers fit predetermined criteria for being slotted in a certain spot, but rather that he'll be middle of the pack, not an ace, not filler. (Eric Seidman)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)True or False: Jair Jurrjens is the most underrated young pitcher in the MLB.
(sunpar from New York)
I'd take Yovani Gallardo before him. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jair Jurrjens has been so-so recently. Should I be unloading him?
(qbroda from Regina)
Nope. About the only thing he's done wrong his last few starts is lose, which isn't entirely on him. I like his component stats a lot still, and he's still doing better than in April. You kept him then, so why not now? (Marc Normandin)
2008-11-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jair Jurrjens had a pretty nice rookie season but doesn't have overpowering stuff. What do you see from him in '09 and beyond? Fall back to earth or can he be even better?
(Dave from Toronto)
Honestly, my bet is neither of those things happening. I think he'll be consistently around that level. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-06-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)What were your feelings at the time of the Renteria trade to DET? Since it was a foregone conclusion that ATL wanted to move him should Dombrowski have had to invest two of his top 5 prospects? Thank you.
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
At the time, I liked it for both parties, but I also didn't think that Jair Jurrjens was going to be much better than a 6th starter. There's still probably a rule that the other 29 clubs shouldn't trade with Atlanta. (Nate Silver)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)re: "sad panda" .... is that a South Park reference? :-) OK ... I need to dump Gil Meche, do I pick up John Danks or Jair Jurrjens? Kyle Lohse isn't for real is he?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Pick up Danks and Jurrjens. Extended exposure to Lohse can severely damage your judgment, even if I was forced to grab him during the playoffs last year. That's a dark time in my life I'd rather not discuss. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jair Jurrjens has been a savior for Bobby Cox this year. Do you think Jurrjens is playing over his head right now?
(Jenny from Macon)
He is over his head. Jurrjens is, right now, a #4 with a #2 upside. He certainly helps the Braves, who had real problems at the back end last season. If Smoltz goes to the bullpen, Jurrjens becomes their second-best starter. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-03-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Up until his last ST start, Jair Jurrjens was lights out. Although his K rate isn't great, it seems he has a knack for getting guys out. Could he be a valuable fantasy contributor this year or better for keeper leagues?
(Thomas from Myerstown, Penn)
Braves like him but right now he is 5th starter as best. I like him as a potential keeper. (Mike Siano)
