The Orioles have signed RHP Jair Jurrjens to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.

I proposed signing a low-risk, high-reward pitcher like Jurrjens or Braden AFTER we signed a durable/consistent starter like Saunders or Marcum.

I don't think he needs to sit 93 to be successful, but his average velocity needs to be around 91 (where it's been in his previous successful seasons).
