During the 2011 off season, the Braves considered trading Jair Jurrjens. While we will never know for sure what was offered or how close a deal came to happening, whatever the return would have been seems better than what the Braves could get for JJ now.
Jurrjens is the biggest bust for the Braves this season because of how far he has fallen. He was considered a prime candidate to start the All Star Game last year, now he isn't even in the Braves' rotation. His ERA has more than doubled since 2011.
He was always known as the Houdini of the Braves' staff, working out of jams with a distinct fastball that wasn't so much quick but was always placed well. He had a knack for being able to tear up the outside corner. In 2012, he was unable to establish that corner, and thus the jams that he worked into he could not get out of.
JJ pitched so poorly that he was sent down to the minors to work out his issues. At one point this year, he was in the bullpen, and now he seems destined to be non-tendered by Atlanta at the end of the season.
