Jurrjens agrees to deal with Orioles

Free agent righthander Jair Jurrjens, who was not tendered by the Braves after a rough 2012 season, has agreed to a deal with the Orioles, CBSSports.com has learned.

Jurrjens will receive a $1.5 million base on a Major League deal and can bring his totalk to $4 million with incentives.

Orioles GM Dan Duquette did a superb job finding pitching gems last winter, and this is another of the low-risk variety. Jurrjens went 3-4 with a 6.89 ERA with Atlanta and spent much of the year in the minors.

But he's only 26, and he's only a year removed from making the All_Star team. Jurrjens was 13-6 with a 2.96 ERA in 2011.

The Orioles talked about trading for Jurrjens a year ago, but comes a better price now.
