(AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles are giving Jair Jurrjens a chance to revive his major league career.
Making his Orioles debut, Jurrjens tries to help his new team avoid a season-high fourth consecutive loss Saturday against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays.
Jurrjens was an All-Star with Atlanta in 2011 when he finished 13-6 with a 2.96 ERA. However, the Braves sent him to the minors after he started 0-2 with a 9.37 ERA in four starts last season. Jurrjens was recalled in June and went 3-2 with a 5.63 ERA in six starts before a strained groin ended his season in early August.
