|Jeremy Jeffress signs minor-league deal with Brewers |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/18/14) The Brewers have signed former Blue Jays reliever Jeremy Jeffress on Friday, MLB.com reports. Jeffress, a former first round pick by the Brewers in 2006, owned a 10.80 ERA over 3 1/3 innings pitched for Triple-A Buffalo.

(4/18/14) At least three teams have shown interest in former Blue Jays reliever Jeremy Jeffress , according to TSN Radio.
The Cardinals, Brewers and White Sox have all considered bringin in Jeffress. He was drafted and developed in the Brewers organization prior to joining Toronto, so there are some ties in Milwaukee. The White Sox are in desperate need of bullpen help, which is why Jeffress makes sense.
Jeffress refused an outright assignment, and became a free-agent Thursday.

(4/17/14) Reliever Jeremy Jeffress did not accept an outright assignment from Toronto, electing to become a free agent, according to Yahoo! Sports on Thursday. Jeffress owned a 10.80 ERA over 3 1/3 innings pitched for Triple-A Buffalo.
|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 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.
