Jair Jurrjens had to leave a start for Triple-A Gwinnett Wednesday night in Norfolk in the third inning with dizziness, the Braves announced. He will be re-evaluated.
Jurrjens was 43 pitches into the second start of his minor league rehabilitation assignment. He’s been on the disabled list since Aug. 1 with a strained groin muscle.
Jurrjens pitched two scoreless innings with two strikeouts Wednesday night before running into trouble in the third. He gave up a walk and back-to-back singles before leaving the game. He was ultimately charged with three earned runs in two plus innings.
Jurrjens had pitched six innings allowing two runs (one earned) in his previous outing Friday for Gwinnett.
