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.
