      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Loses in relief role

      Jeffress pitched two-thirds of an inning, and allowed one run on a hit and a walk with no strikeouts. Jeffress has been very dependable in the closer role for the Brewers, but he couldn't get the job done this time, and allowed the winning run on a groundout after loading the bases. Jeffress, however, only has a 2.28 ERA, and he should remain as Milwaukee's closer for the foreseeable future.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Saves 12th game of season

      Jeffress allowed one hit, but he ultimately pitched a scoreless inning to pick his 12th save of the campaign. Jeffress allowed a one-out single, but a forceout and a lineout got the job done for the 28-year-old righty. He's converted 12 of his 13 save opportunities this season, so he should remain the Brewers closer for the foreseeable future.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Stuck with first blown save of 2016

      Jeffress was stuck with his first blown save of the year Wednesday against the Brewers after allowing a run to come around on a hit, a walk and a hit batsman in the ninth inning. With the Brewers nursing a one-run lead, Jeffress came in for the save and promptly hit Anthony Rizzo, then gave up a single and a groundout to put runners at second and third for Addison Russell, who knocked in the tying run with a grounder of his own. Jeffress did, however, work his way out of further damage. Considering he's given up runs in just three of his 19 outings this year, we'll spot him a bad night. That said, Jeffress has a weak strikeout rate (just 12 in 18 innings) that may put him at risk of losing his job in the longer run.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Gets one-out save against Cubs

      Jeffress got the final out Monday against the Cubs with a strikeout to record his 11th save. The Brewers let Chase Anderson try for the shutout, but after he gave up a pair of solo homers to Jason Heyward and Kris Bryant, they let Jeffress clean up the last out. He made quick work of Anthony Rizzo to pick up the easy save. He remains perfect in save opportunities and has thrown seven consecutive scoreless outings.
