The Orioles and right-handed pitcher Jair Jurrjens still have not finalized a one-year deal, nearly a week after the 27-year-old began his team physical. But Jurrjens remains hopeful that he'll soon be a member of the team and will join the Orioles' pitchers and catchers for their Feb. 12 reporting date in Sarasota, Fla. “I hope so, the only thing I can do is keep working and getting ready,” Jurrjens said by phone Wednesday. “We're still trying to discuss some small stuff on the contract.

Right-hander Jair Jurrjens, who was originally signed this winter to a big league contract before health concerns led to protracted negotiations and, ultimately, a minor league deal, has become a free agent after just two appearances with the Orioles. Jurrjens, who was taken off the club's 40-man roster last week to make room for reliever Jairo Asencio, was outrighted by the Orioles on Thursday to Triple-A Norfolk. Jurrjens refused the assignment and is now a free agent eligible to sign with any team.

Right-hander Jair Jurrjens, who signed a minor league deal Friday, threw his first bullpen session in an Orioles uniform Sunday, mixing 45 pitches between a 20-minute session off a full mound and 10 minutes in the team's indoor batting cages throwing with hitters in the batter's box. The Orioles' contract with Jurrjens went from a $1.5 million major league deal to a minor league deal when the team had concerns about the health of the pitcher's right...

The Orioles recalled right-hander Jairo Asencio (pronounced HIGH-row) from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday and designated for assignment right-hander Jair Jurrjens. Asencio made his first appearance for the Orioles on Friday, pitching a scoreless seventh. He allowed two batters to reach on a walk and single, but he struck out right fielder Jose Bautista and first baseman Edwin Encarnacion - who have combined for 44 home runs this season - to end the inning. Asencio, working primarily as Norfolk's closer this season, went 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA and 20 saves in 37 1/3 innings before his call-up.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Orioles right-hander Jair Jurrjens, making his second spring start, struggled mightily through a 34-pitch inning in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers. Jurrjens allowed three earned runs on two hits and three walks, battling his control throughout the outing. Of the eight hitters he faced, he threw just two first-pitch strikes. “My timing today was way off,” Jurrjens said. “I wasn't finishing the ball, it was starting a ball and then finishing a ball.

 As I wrote for Thursday's newspaper, right-hander Jair Jurrjens believes he and the Orioles are “getting close” to finalizing a deal , which would put the free agent in a position to compete for a spot in the Orioles' rotation this spring. It has been nearly two weeks since it was first reported the sides had agreed to terms pending a physical. But we all knew the physical wouldn't be routine. Jurrjens is a free agent because the Atlanta Braves did not tender him a contract after a woeful 2012 -- and there are some that believe he didn't pitch well because he wasn't healthy.

One of the intriguing aspects to the Orioles' signing of free agent right-hander Jair Jurrjens, which was reported Thursday night, is that he has minor league options remaining. That means Jurrjens, who turns 27 next month, could start the season in Triple-A, so the club wouldn't forced to put him on the big league roster this spring at the risk of losing him. He would be one of 11 possible starting rotation candidates this spring with the Orioles. Jurrjens was sent to Triple-A Gwinnett last April after opening the season unable to get out of the fifth innning in three of his first four starts.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter leaves for spring training today, a week before pitchers and catchers report to Sarasota, Fla., on Feb. 12. Expect everything to be set up exactly to Showalter's liking by that date. He ignores no detail, especially when it comes to the team's spring training set up. But Sarasota is already buzzing with activity. About 23 players in the organization are already training there. They're being overseen by Double-A Bowie manager Gary Kendall. Players are beginning to flow into the Ed Smith Stadium complex.

When right-hander Jair Jurrjens is in Baltimore to take a physical next week -- seemingly the final step before the Orioles' one-year major league deal with the former Atlanta Braves pitcher comes to fruition -- he expects to speak with team officials about whether he will participate in the World Baseball Classic this spring. Jurrjens, who agreed to a $1.5 million deal that could be worth up to $4 million with incentives, is listed on the Netherlands' provisional roster for the WBC, but said Friday that he's "50/50" whether he will play.

The wait on Jair Jurrjens is finally over. Three weeks after the right-hander reportedly agreed to a major league deal with the Orioles, the club announced Friday night that it has instead signed Jurrjens to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training. Jurrjens, 27, is expected to arrive in camp Saturday, in time for the team's first full-squad workout of the spring. According to sources, Jurrjens and the Orioles agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million major league deal (with $2.5 million more available in bonuses)

To make room for Brian Roberts on the roster, the Orioles designated right-hander Jair Jurrjens off the 25-man roster. He'll clear option waivers and report to Triple-A Norfolk after 72 hours. Jurrjens said he'll take some time off before reporting. Jurrjens relieved left-hander Zach Britton in the Orioles' 11-3 win over the Yankees on Saturday night, pitching 2 1/3 innings and allowing three hits and striking out one. “We need to make a roster move to put B-Rob on the roster, and I was the guy coming out from the bullpen yesterday,” Jurrjens said Sunday.

In need of an extra bullpen arm, the Orioles recalled right-hander Jair Jurrjens from Triple-A Norfolk before Saturday's game against the New York Yankees and designated first baseman Travis Ishikawa for assignment. “I just felt like we needed some coverage in our bullpen after last night,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “[Jurrjens] was the most ready. There were a couple other guys we considered. He worked the best.” Jurrjens last pitched Wednesday for the Tides, throwing 48 pitches in just 3 1/3 innings.

This afternoon, the Orioles will try to avoid being swept by the Rays for the second time in the past month. They've lost the first two games of the series here at Tropicana Field, scoring just one run and managing only six hits. Right-hander Chris Tillman, who has not allowed more than three runs in any of his past 10 road starts, will start for the Orioles. Left-hander Matt Moore, who is 4-2 with a 2.34 ERA in seven career appearances against Baltimore, starts for the Rays.

To clear a roster spot for right-hander Miguel Gonzalez's return from the disabled list Tuesday, the Orioles optioned right-hander Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A Norfolk after just one start with the big league club. The move created a vacant spot in the starting rotation for Thursday's game in Toronto. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that the leading candidates to fill that spot are right-hander Jake Arrieta and left-hander T.J. McFarland, depending on how the two are used out of the bullpen in the meantime.

Jair Jurrjens, who will make his Orioles debut Saturday , spoke with the local media after arriving in the clubhouse Friday. Here's the Q&A: What are your thoughts being back in the big leagues? This is everyone wants to be. When you are playing professional ball everybody wants to play in the big leagues. I just happen to be back and am ready to help the team out. What have last 6 weeks been like? I've been just trying to get my stuff back together and just keep working and trying to have fun again playing baseball.

Lots of pre-game notes here in addition to the roster moves (Wei-Yin Chen to the disabled list with a strained right oblique; infielder Yamaico Navarro and pitcher Alex Burnett recalled from Triple-A). Here goes: ** Miguel Gonzalez, currently on the disabled list with a blister on his thumb, will play catch today and if things go well could pitch in a minor league rehab game Thursday, likely at Bowie, and be a legitimate candidate for the currently “to be announced” spot in the rotation Tuesday against the New York Yankees.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman had a rough go of it at Camden Yards on Saturday night, not making it out of the fourth inning. But down on the farm, the Orioles got mixed results from a pair of noteworthy starters. Kevin Gausman, the team's first-round pick in 2012, allowed eight hits and six runs, four of them earned, in his first start of the season for Double-A Bowie. He struck out eight batters and walked none in four innings. He allowed two runs in each of the second, third and fourth innings.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles' goal in the last few games of spring training is to get out of Sarasota healthy. In an 11-8 loss to the New York Yankees, the Orioles saw two players - both likely headed to the minors - leave the game with injuries. Right-hander Jair Jurrjens left in the second inning after getting hit in the right side by a liner off the bat of designated hitter Thomas Neal . Jurrjens was diagnosed with a right rib bruise and will have an X-Ray on Thursday morning.
