Jeffress, Boyer, and Exit Velocity

Back in June, I wrote an article about Tyler Thornburg and Jeremy Jeffress. The point I made was that Thornburg’s ERA wasn’t misleading because it was in line with his DRA, while Jeffress wasn’t as good as his ERA would suggest, considering that his DRA wasn’t very good. Mainly, after digging a little deeper I found that DRA was hurting Jeffress because of his low strikeout...

Milwaukee Brewers Trade Rumors: Bullpen Edition

The Milwaukee Brewers have definitely identified themselves as sellers for the upcoming trade deadline. Outfielder Ryan Braun is the first name that stands out as one who may possibly be on his way out, but bullpen guys Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress are drawing a lot of interest from other teams as well. The right-handed Jeffress has an ERA of 2.23 this season to go along with 23...

What Happened to Jeremy Jeffress’s Strikeouts?

The 2015 Milwaukee Brewers didn’t do many things well, but they did manage to put together a strong bullpen. Remember those days? When the team could count on Francisco Rodriguez, Will Smith, Michael Blazek, and Jeremy Jeffress to preserve late-game leads? That halcyon campaign — in which Brewers relievers ranked seventh in adjusted ERA and seventh in DRA — would, we hoped...

Jeremy Jeffress Is Taking Off

Remember in the offseason, when everyone thought the Brewers’ bullpen might carry them to surprising success in 2016? Man, were we wrong.

But instead...

Checking In On Jeremy Jeffress

Jeremy Jeffress was supposed to be a co-closer for Milwaukee, but Will Smith’s preseason injury threw a wrench into manager Craig Counsell’s best-laid plans. Instead of just being part of a bullpen by committee, Jeffress has been the club’s first option in the ninth inning.

Jeffress feels blessed to be back with Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- There was a time not so long ago when Jeremy Jeffress thought about giving it all up and quitting baseball. The inability to find the cause of his uncontrollable seizures while pitching in Triple-A almost was too much for the talented right-hander to handle. "I just felt like giving up, like 'I can't be in this game,'" Jeffress said. Jeffress' path back to the big leagues...

The Toronto Blue Jays split series

The Toronto Blue Jays opened the 2014 season by splitting their first series with the Tampa Bay Rays last week. Toronto, however, got hammered in the first game 9-2.  I don’t remember the last time the Jays got creamed in their opening game of the  season. R.A. Dickey was on the mound and got roughed up good.  Dickey gave up five hits, six earned runs, six walks, and struck...
