Orioles, Braves Discussed Trade For Jurrjens, Prado

The Orioles and Braves have discussed a deal that included both righty Jair Jurrjens and infielder/outfielder Martin Prado, reported Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports yesterday.  However, the FOX writers find it unlikely that the Braves would package both chips in one trade.

Jurrjens, 25, posted a 2.96 ERA, 5.3 K/9, 2.6 BB/9, 0.83 HR/9, and 42% groundball rate in 152 innings this year, missing time with oblique and knee injuries.  His skills continue to suggest an ERA around 4.40, and he's only reached 190 innings once, but sub-3.00 ERAs in '09 and '11 may have allowed Jurrjens' reputation as a front-end starter to persist.  The Orioles don't seem to be in a position to move significant young players for two years of Jurrjens, despite their current rotation uncertainty.
