Jair Jurrjens to DL

Written by Joe Lucia on .

The hamstring is just causing him too many problems right now, I guess. He'll be place on the DL, whenever his replacement on the roster is able to get to Washington...and that replacement is none other than Mr Craig Kimbrel! Welcome to the show Craig, he's your box of cream of wheat and a complimentary microwave oven. JJ's rotation spot will be taken over by Kris Medlen, who will start Saturday in Philly. I don't think Kimbrel is going to go back to Gwinnett once Jurrjens is healthy, assuming he doesn't get completely blasted in the majors...in 15 innings this year for the G-Braves, he's walked 5 while striking out 21 an only allowing 7 hits. His control was the main red flag coming into the year, and that appears to have been taken care of. As for Jurrjens' rotation spot, Medlen should be able to fill the whole nicely. Some fans have been clamoring for Medlen's return to the rotation, but in place of Kenshin Kawakami. Now, with Medlen replacing Jurrjens who has been wholly ineffective this year, he's getting the shot to show what he can do in a situation with less stress placed upon him. If Medlen is able to succeed as a starter in the interim, it raises a number of interesting questions as to just what in the hell is going to happen with the rotation consisting of 3 guys paid like champions, and 3 guys who are still wet behind the ears, but are better overall pitchers.
