The quality pitching of Jair Jurrjens

Braves righty Jair Jurrjens is this year's Ubaldo Jimenez. In case you haven't noticed, Jurrjens has made nine starts and has nine Quality Starts to show for it. In fact, he's 7-1 with a 1.51 ERA because he has yet to give up as many as three earned runs in any start this season. In May, in six starts, he was 5-1 with a 1.65 ERA and was the NL Pitcher of the Month.

So why is Jurrjens as hard to hit as his name is to spell? Take a look at him working the corners.
