Jair Jurrjens SP COL 2 Months

Jurrjens re-signed with the Rockies on a minor-league contract Friday, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports. The deal includes an invitation to major league camp.

Jurrjens has seen his career spiral downward since making the All-Star Game in 2011, bouncing around between four different organizations and posting a cumulative 7.20 ERA over 15 appearances (13 starts) the last three seasons. He made two of those starts with the Rockies last season when injuries decimated the rotation, but did little to suggest that he's close to reemerging as a competent big-league hurler. At this point, he's best utilized as nothing more than a depth starter in the minors for an organization.

Jurrjens has elected free agency, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

The Rockies traded for Jurrjens out of desperation in early July, and the right-hander was predictably awful in his two starts for the big club (10.61 ERA, 2.46 WHIP). He went 2-8 with a 4.54 ERA in 14 starts at the Triple-A level, and at this point in his career, Jurrjens is likely best suited for an organizational depth role.
