Braves' Jair Jurrjens has knee surgery

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Braves right-hander Jair Jurrjens is expected to
be ready for spring training after surgery to repair a meniscus
tear in his right knee.

The Braves said Wednesday that Jurrjens had arthroscopic surgery
on Tuesday in Birmingham, Ala., to repair a lateral meniscus tear.
Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery.

The 24-year-old Jurrjens was not able to pitch in the Braves' NL
division series loss to San Francisco due to the injury. He missed
two months early in the season with a hamstring injury. He was 7-6
with a 4.64 ERA in 20 starts.
