DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – The Detroit Tigers have signed yet another former Tigers pitcher to a Triple-A deal. Righty Jair Jurrjens began his career with Detroit, spent five seasons in the Atlanta Braves organization and threw two games for the Baltimore Orioles this season. Now he is back where it all started.

Jurrjens recorded a 3.68 in his first full season with Atlanta, earning Rookie of the Year consideration. The next year he pitched even better, starting a league-high 34 games and finishing with a 2.60 ERA. In 2011, Jurrjens was named an All-Star after amassing a 2.96 ERA and a 13-6 record.

This season, Jurrjens is 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA in two games, including one start, for Baltimore.

The Tigers added former Detroit pitcher Jeremy Bonderman earlier this month, and the Toledo Mud Hens are reportedly planning to use Bonderman in the bullpen even though he was always used a starter previously.

There has been no word yet on how Toledo will use Jurrjens, but the Tigers say he will be joining the Mud Hens Monday.
