Braves put Jurrjens on disabled list; recall Minor

WASHINGTON — The Atlanta Braves have put right-handed pitcher Jair Jurrjens on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle.

The club announced the move Sunday, making it retroactive to March 25.

The Braves recalled left-hander Mike Minor from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Jurrjens was hurt in Atlanta’s game against Toronto on March 24 and has been slow to recover. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Jurrjens would throw a simulated game in Gwinnett this week. After a start next week, he should be ready to return on April 16.

Jurrjens spent time on the DL with a strained left hamstring last season, when he was 7-6 with a 4.64 ERA. His season ended in mid-September with a knee injury.

Minor was 3-2 with a 5.98 ERA in nine games with the Braves in 2010.
