Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Rockies acquired former All- Star pitcher Jair Jurrjens in a trade with the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday.

In exchange, the Reds landed Double-A infielder Harold Riggins.

Jurrjens hasn't regained the form that made him an All-Star with the Atlanta Braves in 2011, a season cut short by a knee injury.

The right-hander went 50-36 in 118 starts for the Braves from 2008-12. He made three appearances for the Baltimore Orioles last season before he was sent to the minors in July.

Jurrjens was 2-3 with a 4.46 ERA in six starts for Triple-A Louisville this season.

The Rockies were in Washington for the finale of a three-game series.
