Orioles | Jair Jurrjens could get another chance soon

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles SP Jair Jurrjens (rib cage) was hit in the right rib cage in his Grapefruit League start Wednesday, March 27, and he had the wind knocked out of him. Manager Buck Showalter said it is possible Jurrjens could pitch Friday, March 29, or Saturday, March 30, if X-rays are negative and the pain subsides. Jurrjens will have the X-rays Thursday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: Jurrjens is still in the mix for the fifth starter job, battling Jake Arrieta for the spot. Jurrjens likely needs to get healthy in a hurry, and pitch well in that next appearance, to have any chance of winning the job. Even so, he would only be worth a look in the deepest of AL-only leagues.
