Jair Jurrjens left in the third inning of his second Triple-A rehab start due to dizziness, according to a tweet from the Braves.

Things aren't looking up for Jair Jurrjens. After an injury-riddled season, the Atlanta Braves pitcher left his second rehab start for the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves in the third inning due to dizziness, according to a tweet from the team.

This is the second straight game that Jurrjens has left in the third inning. He was pulled after two innings in his first rehab start when he followed two scoreless innings by giving up a walk and back-to-back singles to start the third.

Jurrjens has been on the disabled list since the beginning of August with a strained groin. It's unclear how a groin strain would connect to dizziness, indicating that Jurrjens problems may be mounting.
