 Biographical Information
Jason Jennings was a pitcher for nine major league season.
He was a first team college All-American at both pitcher and designated hitter at Baylor University. In the 1997 Intercontinental Cup, Jennings pitched one scoreless inning as the least-used US hurler. He was a two-way player for Team USA in the 1998 Baseball World Cup. He had a 1-0, 1.17 record in the qualifying tournament. In the Cup itself, he was 0-1 with a 4.76 ERA, getting roughed up by Nicaragua in his only start. He played one game at DH, striking out in both at-bats.
He is the only pitcher in major league history to pitch a shutout and hit a home run in his major league debut. In Jennings' first 12 days as a major leaguer he picked up three wins on the road on his way to a 4-1 record in 2001.
Jennings underwent surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow on August 30, 2007. Barring any setbacks, he is expected to return to action by sometime near the beginning of the 2008 season.  He did appear in six games in 2008 and is also pitching in 2009.
