Jurrjens on track to make his next start
PHOENIX -- Braves right-hander Jair Jurrjens, who has struggled since Spring Training, remains on track to make his next start.

On Wednesday, Jurrjens walked four batters and was charged with four runs on seven hits in four innings in the Braves' 14-6 win against the Mets. He's 0-1 with an 8.10 ERA in his first three starts of the season.

"I looked at the video of him and there were some balls he left over the plate," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Whether it was the weather or a tough day to pitch, because [Mets starter R.A.] Dickey didn't last very long, either. I'm just going to chalk it up to that right now."

Gonzalez said Jurrjens' right knee is completely healthy and he saw the pitcher running on the field before Thursday's game against the D-backs at Chase Field.

"I think he'll be fine," the manager said.
