Atlanta Braves pitcher Jair Jurrjens is starting to gain some attention in trade talks. How did he perform this past season?

Atlanta Braves right-handed pitcher Jair Jurrjens is starting to gain some trade interest this offseason, according to a report by Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports. During 2012, Jurrjens struggled, going only 3-4 in 10 starts, with a 6.89 ERA before he was demoted to the AAA Gwinett Braves.

However, in 2011, Jurrjens did have a good season, going 13-6 in 23 starts with a 2.96 ERA. He also pitched two complete games and one shutout, with 90 strikeouts over 152 innings pitched before his season was cut short due to injury. His most productive season was in 2009 where he started 34 games and pitched 215 innings. That season he went 14-10 with a 2.61 ERA and struck out 152 batters.

For his career, Jurrjens is 53-37 with a 3.62 ERA. The Braves acquired Jurrjens from the Detroit Tigers in 2008 along with Gorkys Hernandez for shortstop Edgar Renteria.
