Jair Jurrjens pitches for the Detroit Tigers in August of 2007.
(WXYZ) - Old faces keep resurfacing with the Tigers organization.
Add Jair Jurrjens to the list that includes Jose Valverde and Jeremy Bonderman.
The Tigers have signed Jurrjens to a Triple A deal, they announced before their game against the White Sox Wednesday.
This season, Jurrjens split his time with the Baltimore Orioles and their Triple A affiliate in Norfolk. He pitched in two games with the Orioles.
Jurrjens pitched for the Tigers in 2007, going 3-1 in seven starts before being traded to Atlanta for shortstop Edgar Renteria in October of that year.
The 27-year-old had his best season with the Braves in 2011, when he reached the All-Star Game. After going 13-6 with a 2.96 ERA, a knee injury ended his season.
