Jair Jurrjens Demoted

The fairytale seems over. I'll still remember the good times last year when he was powering my H2H team. At least I didn't draft him this year. :-D

Not sure what has happen wit this guy, hate to see where he has ended up as of right now. I hope he can rebound and get back up in the majors and be a force again someday

It is hard to be a mediocre GB guy who doesn't K very many guys and stay good for a long time, eventually the regression tends to come and smack you all over the place. I'm sure he'll be back at some point but he was never a pitcher as skilled as the ERA suggests so don't expect him to 'fully' come back.

He's consistently had a 4.25 xFIP so this really isn't a surprise. The only things that are a surprise is that he's posted two ERA's under 3. I think pretty much everyone knew that those were flukes even though it happened twice. Even the Braves (pushing to trade him all winter) and the other teams (not interested).
