Newest Rockie has scare

– Jair Jurrjens was breathing a little easier Saturday after the tightness in his chest turned out to be nothing more than a scare.

The newly acquired Colorado Rockies pitcher was taken to the hospital following his start Friday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers after struggling to catch his breath.

Jurrjens said X-rays and blood work revealed nothing out of the ordinary and his shortness of breath may simply be from the altitude.

The 28-year-old described the incident as “super scary.”

Jurrjens made his first big league start in a year against the Dodgers, lasting 4 2/3 innings and giving up eight runs.

Around the leagues

St. Louis left-hander Jaime Garcia said he may need additional shoulder surgery because he’s experiencing nerve issues and numbness in his hand. … The Los Angeles Angels bolstered their bullpen by acquiring left-handed reliever Joe Thatcher and outfielder Tony Campana from Arizona for outfielder Zach Borenstein and minor league right-hander Joey Krehbiel.
