|Blue Jays shuffle back of bullpen |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/5/14) The Blue Jays made a minor roster move after Friday's loss to the Yankees, as they designated reliever Jeremy Jefress for assignment and recalled Chad Jenkins to replace him in the bullpen.
Jeffress saw his ERA rise to 10.80 after allowing one run on three hits in one inning Friday. Jenkins posted a 2.70 in 10 appearances a year ago, and was set to open the season for Triple-A Buffalo before getting the call.

|Jeremy Jeffress over epilepsy issues |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/9/13) Blue Jays pitcher Jeremy Jeffress was diagnosed with juvenile epilepsy in late June while playing with Triple-A Buffalo, MLB.com reports Monday. That diagnosis has people around the team believing his career is about to turn a corner.
The condition took a toll on Jeffress, but now that he's being properly medicated, his symptoms have dissipated and his daily routine is back to normal.
"The Blue Jays checked me into a hospital in Buffalo and they finally found out what was wrong," Jeffress said. "They have really good doctors there and they figured out I was on the wrong medication. The medication I was on wasn't a long-lasting overnight medication for me, it was for younger kids. They put me on extended-relief type of medicine that worked."
|Jeremy Jeffress made 10 appearances for the Blue Jays in 2013, posting a 0.87 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. He struck out 12 in 10 1/3 innings. While Jeffress hasn't done a lot in his career to engender much confidence (a 4.10 minor league ERA), his 1.39 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 32 1/3 minor league innings last season are intriguing. Jeffress can hit triple-digits on the radar gun and was diagnosed with juvenile epilepsy in June. With the new diagnosis came new medicine, which changed his routine (for the better), eased his anxiety, allowed him to sleep better at night, and solved a problem that had been nagging at him since 2008. On top of all that, Jeffress also dropped his arm slot in 2013. The proof is in the pudding with Jeffress -- he has an electric arm and there's a solid reason for his sudden turnaround in performance. His role is still unclear, but he may force his way into high-leverage situations if he can carry this momentum forward to 2014. Jeffress is probably too far under radars to be drafted in most formats, but those who like to play the upside game --especially those in dynasty formats -- may want to consider taking a shot on the 26-year-old in AL-only formats.
