Jurrjens treated for dehydration

Jair Jurrjens spent Wednesday night in a Norfolk area hospital after being treated for dehydration, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. He was released Thursday morning and given a clean bill of health, Gonzalez said.

Jurrjens was making the second start of his minor league rehabilitation start for Triple-A Gwinnett Wednesday night when he came out after 43 pitches complaining of dizziness. He’s been on the disabled list since Aug. 1 with a strained groin muscle.

Jurrjens pitched two scoreless innings with two strikeouts before giving up a walk and back-to-back singles in the third inning before leaving the game. He was ultimately charged with three earned runs in two plus innings.

Glad to hear that it was nothing more serious. I wish him the best going forward.

I was actually hoping this was all there was to it. Dehydration in and of itself is not a debilitating issue. Braves need to supervise a better pre-game hydration program for Jurrjens.

I hope he’s been dehydrated all year and after a downing a crystal springs cooler is now a stud again.

I hope this is nothing more serious. They should check his sugar levels.

What more could go wrong with JJ’s season. I’m afraid he has played himself off the Braves and that they will get nothing for him. Sad.

Is the guy dumb or what ?

Having been in sports probably his entire life, and he doesn’t understand hydration at this point in a professional career ?

On that alone, and having the ultimate greedy Boros on his team……. I see the braves cutting bait with this guy very soon.

JJ will be non-tendered. Look at the outrageous number of starters the Braves have already under contract next year – Hudson, Malhom, Minor, Beachy (who should be ready by then), Delgado, Teheran and Gilmartin – which ignores Medlen as a starter. Then they have to decide what to do with Hanson (arbitration eligible) and Sheets. JJ has no trade value and I would not be shocked to see the Braves arbitrate with Hanson and then trade him. Unless JJ wants to come back on the cheap and take his chances, I don’t see the Braves doing anything other than releasing him, which is a shocking turn of events given he was an All Star last year. Sure hope he goes to the AL, don’t want to deal with him in the NL once his knee is full strength again.

I join you in wishing Jurrgens the best!

But you undeerestimate how serious dehydration can be. Of course I’m much older (65) but in early July I was hospitalized for 4 days due to dehydration. In my case, the dehydration resulted in kidney failure….which can be life-threatening if not detected and treated early. Fortunately after being given fluids by IV, my kidneys returned to completely normal function.

The moral of this story is—– DRINK WATER — AND LOTS OF IT EVERY DAY!!!

Marvin Mangrum- Your comment is rude & unexcusable. It should be taken down immediately!

Marvin Mangrum … your mother should have aborted you. Your existence on this planet was a complete waste of a fertilized egg.

Praying for you J.J., and hoping for you a full and speedy recovery. I really miss seeing you stymie the opposition.

they had to raise his salary to about $5 mill due to arbitration. then, Wren gambled he would improve and didn’t accept any of the offers for him. this backfired (hindsight is 20/20) and now we are stuck with him -but only for 2012.
he will be non-tendered and gone after 2012. then, he will become an all star again elsewhere.
still don’t know if his knee is now okay why he has pitched so erratically. must be partly mental.
Boras will have an answer for everyone, you can be sure of that.
