Jurrjens making progress

Jair Jurrjens The injured Jair Jurrjens is still an option for the Braves this postseason.

Jurrjens threw his second bullpen in the past three days and told Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he felt good enough to pitch.

"Some pitches I feel it, some pitches I don't," said Jurrjens, who is dealing with an injured right knee. "It was good."

Jurrjens could pitch in relief this weekend during the series without he Phillies, giving Bobby Cox a chance to see if Jurrjens could be included on the postseason roster.

"It's just good to know that I think he could pitch," Cox said.

Tonight Brandon Beachy is making his third start in Jurrjens' place.
