      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Turns in scoreless appearance

      Jeremy Jeffress tossed 1.1 scoreless innings in Wednesday's victory over the Pirates.Wednesday's outing snapped a five-appearance streak over which Jeffress allowed at least one earned run in each game, and nine earned runs in all. He has not nearly as effective as he was last season, but he owned a 3.63 ERA as recently as July 21, so he may simply have hit a rough patch. Jeffress' struggles have kept him out of the late-inning mix of late, but if Wednesday's outing is the start of a turnaround, he could still get back in there before the season comes to a close.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Unable to pick up save

      Jeremy Jeffress blew his third save of the season in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Reds.With Josh Hader unavailable, Jeffress was called upon to close out Monday's game after the Milwaukee Brewers dramatically took a 5-4 lead in the eighth inning thanks to a Tyler Saladino grand slam. However, Jeffress was unable to shut the door, serving up a two-run, two-out home run to Eugenio Suarez. Expect Jeffress to continue working primarily in a setup role in front of Hader.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Blows save but picks up win

      Jeremy Jeffress allowed two runs, one earned, in a blown save opportunity Saturday, but still picked up his third win of the season in the Milwaukee Brewers' walk-off victory over the Giants.Jeffress was summoned to close out Saturday's game with fellow reliever Josh Hader unavailable, but -- at least in part to a defensive mishap -- he was unable to lock it up. He did keep the game tied, though, and the Brewers' offense was able to pick him up. Jeffress allowed nine earned runs in 11.1 innings over his last 11 outings, but expect him to continue seeing work in key situations and filling in as closer when Hader needs a break.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Earns first save of 2019

      Jeremy Jeffress allowed a run on two hits Monday, striking out one batter and earning the save over Cincinnati.Jeffress coughed up a two-out RBI single to Phillip Ervin but managed to close things out against the division rivals. He earned his first save of the year, but his ERA bounced to 4.18. Josh Hader allowed a two-run homer in the eighth before Jeffress came in, but Hader will still be the team's go-to closer.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Finishes Sunday's victory

      Jeremy Jeffress allowed two earned runs over 1.1 innings but still finished Sunday's 7-5 victory over the Reds.Jeffress allowed both runs in the ninth inning of Sunday's contest, but the tying run did not come to the plate until there were two outs, so manager Craig Counsell gave him the opportunity to finish the contest, and Jeffress ultimately got the job done. Jeffress has allowed seven earned runs over 10.2 innings this month (5.91 ERA), but the good news for fantasy players is he seems to have settled in as the setup man in front of closer Josh Hader.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Picks up first win

      Jeremy Jeffress tossed a scoreless eighth inning and picked up his first win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Pirates.Jeffress entered Sunday's game in the eighth inning with the contest tied, and he picked up the win after the Milwaukee Brewers scored three runs in the bottom of the frame. Jeffress pitched in several situations after making his debut in mid-April through the end of May, but he should be considered the setup man in front of Josh Hader at this point, having pitched directly in front of Hader in four consecutive outings -- all games the Brewers ended up winning.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Could be back in setup role

      Jeremy Jeffress tossed 1.2 scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Thursday's victory over the Marlins.Jeffress was summoned to pitch the seventh inning Thursday, and he recorded two outs in the eighth frame before giving way to closer Josh Hader, who locked down the win for the Milwaukee Brewers. Manager Craig Counsell is not one to clearly define roles in his bullpen, but Jeffress has now pitched directly in front of Hader in back-to-back outings, something he did the same number of times over his first 16 appearances of the season. Jeffress's fantasy utility will still have its limits even if he is indeed back in the setup role, but that would help his cause in leagues that count holds, and puts him on deck for saves should Hader be unavailable.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: Two scoreless frames in win

      Jeremy Jeffress threw two scoreless innings and struck out two batters in Thursday's victory over the Pirates.Jeffress got a scare earlier in the week when he caught a line drive that just missed his head, but he was no worse for the wear after, and did not seem affected at all in Thursday's outing. Jeffress has thrown five scoreless frames in a row, and now owns a 2.55 ERA on the season. While he has been effective, he continues working in a different role than he held most of last year -- when he was mainly a setup man or closer -- entering before the eighth inning in seven straight outings.

      Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress: No issues to report

      Jeremy Jeffress, who was removed from Monday's game against the Twins by manager Craig Counsell after narrowly avoiding a line drive hit at his head, did not report any issues Tuesday, according to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.Jeffress fell awkwardly to the ground after snagging the liner in his direction and stayed down for a few moments, which prompted Counsell to take him out of the game. However, Counsell said after the game he removed Jeffress for precautionary reasons, and Jeffress confirmed that Tuesday when asked. Jeffress threw just 16 pitches Monday in his first appearance in five days, so he should be good to go Tuesday if needed.
