shoulder has revealed inflammation but no structural problems.
The Braves say team orthopedist Dr. Xavier Duralde has
prescribed a week of rest and treatment for Jurrjens following
Wednesday's MRI. Jurrjens is expected to start throwing next week.

Duralde says the MRI showed anterior shoulder inflammation. He
says the structure of the shoulder and labrum looked normal.
Jurrjens says he made an awkward throw while working out last
week, causing lingering discomfort. He was 14-10 and ranked third
in the NL with a 2.60 ERA last season.
