Drafted in the 6th round (185th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2002
Jurries beat out Mark Teixeira for Baseball America's Freshman of the Year award in 1999. Though Teixeira has eclipsed him and then some, Jurries has had a solid career in spite of injuries. He's Conference USA's 2002 player of the year, and he earned all-league recognition in each of his four seasons. He's a pure hitter with good power. He isn't blessed with a lot of speed but shows good instincts on the bases. The big question is where to play Jurries. His feet and arm may relegate him to first base or left field.
