Brewers | Tyler Thornburg fills in, nabs save

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:36:08 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Tyler Thornburg filled in for RP Jeremy Jeffress (eye) as the team's closer Wednesday, June 22, against the Oakland Athletics, pitching 1 1/3 scoreless innings for his second save of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffress was unavailable this afternoon due to an eye infection, and it's unknown if he'll have to miss any additional time. If he remains out in the coming days or beyond, Thornburg is worth going after, as he's one of those current late-inning relievers around baseball who could probably excel as a closer, if given the chance.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress has eye infection

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 16:52:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress (eye) was unavailable to pitch Wednesday, June 22, against the Oakland Athletics due to an eye infection, according to manager Craig Counsell.

Fantasy Tip: Tough break for his owners this afternoon, as Jeffress missed out on a save opportunity as a result of the infection. Tyler Thornburg was able to close it out in his absence, and he's someone that's definitely worth rushing to the waiver wire for, should Jeffress land on the shelf. It's unknown as of now if he has to miss any additional time.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress picks up a loss

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 00:23:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress recorded just one out before allowing the game-winning run to score against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Despite an excellent conversion percentage on save chances, Jeffress has not been sharp recently. He has been scored upon in four of his last 10 outings, and this came one night after walking a tightrope -- loading the bases with two outs and a two-run lead -- before registering his 19th save. It's something to keep an eye on.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress shaky in ninth

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 21:43:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress allowed two runs on three hits in an inning of work against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffress eventually got Chris Coghlan to fly out to the track to end the game, picking up his 16th save in 17 chances in the process, but it was still the third time in five outings he has allowed at least one run to cross home plate. With RPs Will Smith and Tyler Thornburg looming, Jeffress can't afford any long-term struggles. It's a situation to monitor.

Brewers | Will Smith a closing option?

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:31:37 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell said he'd be as comfortable using RP Will Smith once he gets his feet on the ground -- in the ninth inning to close out games as he is with RP Jeremy Jeffress.

Fantasy Tip: Does anyone smell closer-by-committee? Jeffress has been solid in the ninth-inning role for Milwaukee, saving 12 of his 13 chances. But Smith was great last year for the Brew Crew with a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a whopping 12.9 strikeouts per nine innings, and he certainly has the stuff to succeed in the role. However, Smith only has one career save. Regardless, he needs to be owned everywhere, as it looks like he'll get a shot to lock down games alongside Jeffress.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress unavailable Tuesday

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:32:58 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress (rest) was unavailable to pitch the ninth inning Thursday, May 19, against the Chicago Cubs due to his recent workload. RP Tyler Thornburg filled in for the save opportunity.

Fantasy Tip: This is perfectly understandable, as the 28-year-old has pitched in five consecutive games spanning six days, and remember, this is the first time he's been a closer in his career. Jeffress has been brilliant up to this point, converting on all but one of his 12 save opportunities while putting up quality numbers, so keep leaning on him as a trusty closer.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress blows first save

Wed, 18 May 2016 05:18:47 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress blew his first save Wednesday, May 18, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: It was a minor hiccup, and his ERA sits at 2.50 with a 1.17 WHIP. He's not striking as many batters out as you'd like at 6.00 per nine innings, but he's a solid third reliever.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress earns another save

Sat, 14 May 2016 06:41:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the San Diego Padres Friday, May 13, to pick up his ninth save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffress has not allowed a run in any of his last four outings and has recorded one win and three saves during that span. Jeffress has performed well as the team's closer and should be used in all fantasy leagues.

Brewers | Jeremy Jeffress grabs fist win

Sun, 08 May 2016 06:14:00 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress allowed a single hit during hiss scoreless ninth-inning appearance and recorded his first win of the season during the Brewers' 13-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffress appears to have a firm hold of closer duties for Milwaukee and sits with seven saves, a 2.84 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP and 5.7 K/9. The unimpressive supporting stats make Jeffress a low-tier reliever, but as long as he is heading to the bump in the ninth inning, Jeffress should be owned in all fantasy formats.
