News: Jurrjens was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Monday. Impact: Jurrjens had been optioned to Triple-A prior to the All-Star break, but the Rockies needed his spot on the 40-man roster in order to select the contract of Ben Paulsen from Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 28-year-old has a chance to become a free agent if he clears waivers, but after allowing 11 earned runs in 9.1 innings over two starts with the Rockies, it's unlikely he draws much interest on the market.(RotoWire, )

News: Jurrjens was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs after Wednesday's win, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports. Impact: With Jurrjens not set to pitch again before the All-Star break, his move to the minors will allow Carlos Gonzalez (finger) to return from the disabled list Friday. Jurrjens was beaten up for 11 runs on 20 hits (four homers) over his two starts with the Rockies, and with Eddie Butler making strides in the health department, there's no guarantee Jurrjens will receive the opportunity to rejoin the rotation after the break.(RotoWire, )

News: Jurrjens was breathing a little easier Saturday after the tightness in his chest turned out to be nothing more than a scare. Impact: The newly acquired Colorado Rockies pitcher was taken to the hospital following his start Friday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers after struggling to catch his breath. Jurrjens said X-rays and blood work revealed nothing out of the ordinary and his shortness of breath may simply be due to the altitude.(STATS, 1:25am)
