Cubs Sign Jeremy Jeffress

The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a one-year contract with relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress. Jeffress had a rough 5.02 ERA over 48 appearances last season while battling shoulder and hip issues. Jeffress was released in September and finished the season unemployed. Jeffress did have a sparkling in 1.29 ERA in 2018 and the Cubs are hoping that they will get that version of the righty in 2020. For fantasy purposes, Jeffress can be left on the waiver wire for now, but if Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel gets hurt or dealt, Jeffress could get save opportunities.

Jeremy Jeffress Efficient On Saturday

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress pitched a perfect inning on six pitches in Saturday's game against the Mets. This now makes three perfect innings in a row since Jeffress had his two blow up starts. Josh Hader is firmly the Brewers closer, but if Jeffress can regain some of the velocity he has lost, he could be a decent option in ratios leagues and may get a few saves here and there. However, Hader is likely to get the lion's share of the saves for the rest of the season.

Jeremy Jeffress Doesn't Record An Out

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress came into the eighth inning with a three run lead and allowed two hits, a walk and a run before being pulled for Josh Hader without recording an out. This was the first time that Jeffress had given up a run this season and it was a bad time for him to do so for his fantasy value as Hader recorded a perfect two inning save. Jeffress has also lost a lot of velocity on his fastball since returning from the shoulder injury. Jeffress averaged 95.3 mph on his fastball in 2018 and so far this year is averaging 91.7. That is a pretty significant difference and explains why the Brewers are being so careful with him. Hopefully Jeffress can regain his lost velocity and start being worked into save chances, but for now, the job seems to belong to Hader.
