Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies (biceps) was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.

The move comes as no surprise, as Jefferies was expected to start the season with Las Vegas and has also been sidelined with a biceps strain that short-circuited his opportunity to get further seasoning in big-league camp. The 24-year-old's status will certainly be one to monitor, as a 2019 campaign that was good enough earn him the organization's Minor League Pitcher of the Year award has led to expectations that the talented right-hander could eventually reach the big leagues at some point in 2020.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Specialist confirms stained biceps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctors confirmed Jefferies is dealing with a right biceps strain, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

A specialist confirmed Jefferies avoided damage to his elbow, which is good news for the 24-year-old, who underwent Tommy John surgery back in April of 2017. While the right-hander seemingly dodged a bullet, a biceps strain could still be problematic for a pitcher, and the Athletics will likely handle him with extra caution, leaving his status for the start of the season in doubt.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Visiting specialist Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies (biceps) underwent an MRI which revealed no elbow issues, but he'll visit a specialist Monday for his upper biceps strain, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Jefferies left last Monday's spring game with the injury and continues to be evaluated, so he won't have a recovery timeline until after his visit with the specialist. Manager Bob Melvin previously indicated the team "dodged a bullet" with the initial diagnosis, but a biceps strain could still be problematic for a pitcher. The 24-year-old's status for the start of the season remains up in the air for now.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Heading for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies has been diagnosed with a biceps strain and will undergo an MRI on Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Manager Bob Melvin says the Athletics "dodged a bullet" with Jefferies' injury, though it's not as if a biceps strain is a total non-issue for a pitcher. His expected recovery timeline won't become clear until after the MRI.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Dealing with biceps issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin said Jefferies was removed from Monday's Cactus League game against the Brewers with a biceps issue, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Melvin didn't elaborate on the injury, which prompted Jefferies to exit Monday's spring game with a trainer after recording just two outs. Prior to his removal, the right-hander allowed three runs on three hits and a walk.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies exited Monday's Cactus League game against the Brewers with a trainer, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Jefferies left the field with a trainer after allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while recording just two outs. The reason behind his removal is not yet known.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Impressing early in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies, Oakland's Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2019, has impressed during his first two bullpen sessions in camp, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "His walk numbers are off the charts," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He looks good. He's poised and has a really good delivery. Very rarely does he miss a spot, and at a young age, that's something that seems to come pretty easy for him."

The 24-year-old earned the aforementioned distinction with an eye-popping 93:9 K:BB across 79 innings with High-A Stockton and Double-A Midland, and that pinpoint control has been on display thus far in big-league camp. Jeffries already boasts a mid-90s fastball and a changeup that sits in the high 80s, and one of his goals this spring is to further develop a slider he began throwing midway through last season. Gallegos reports Jefferies is highly likely to start the season at Triple-A Las Vegas regardless of how his spring training unfolds, but he won't be on the same innings restrictions that were necessary in 2019 when he came back from Tommy John surgery.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Contract selected by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Wednesday.

The 24-year-old's addition to the 40-man roster protects him from the Rule 5 draft after he recorded a 3.66 ERA with a 72:7 K:BB over 64 innings with Double-A Midland last season. Right-hander Jharel Cotton was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Although Jefferies was effective at the Double-A level in 2019, he'll likely need more time against better minor-league competition before making his major-league debut.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Reaches innings limit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies will finish the season on the 7-day injured list with Double-A Midland after reaching his innings limit, Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports. "His last game was his highest velo game of the year," Midland pitching coach Steve Connelly said. "He basically sat 95. It was really good to see. We all got together and talked it out. He's at his innings limit. We could try to push it or we could say, 'Congratulations, great year and next year you'll be ready to go hopefully into late October.'"

The 6-foot righty logged just 20.1 pro innings between 2016 and 2018 due to April 2017 Tommy John surgery, so this was an excellent first full year back. He logged a 3.42 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 93:9 K:BB in 79 innings, primarily at the Double-A level. The A's were very careful with him -- he threw between three and 3.2 innings in all 26 appearances -- so his numbers are a little inflated due to the fact he never had to turn a lineup over more than twice. Still, Jefferies has a plus changeup, a potentially plus fastball, and plus control. He should head to Triple-A at the start of the 2020 season, but if all goes well Jefferies will spend a good chunk of next season pitching in the big-league rotation.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Impressing at Double-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies is 0-1 with a 2.57 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 18:0 K:BB across 21 innings over seven appearances (five starts) with Double-A Midland.

Jefferies received a promotion from High-A Stockton in late April and made his first appearance with Midland back on May 1. He's had minimal trouble finding his footing against the higher level of competition while operating as both reliever and starter thus far. The right-hander has yet to throw more than three innings in any appearance, but he's making nice progress up the organizational ladder, now more than two years removed from April 2017 Tommy John surgery.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Healthy at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies is listed as healthy to start the season for High-A Stockton, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.

We want to knock on wood with this news, as Jefferies was starting to look like a cautionary tale for Tommy John surgery. He underwent the procedure in April of 2017 and has thrown exactly two innings in a game since then. Now, a little less than 24 months removed from the procedure, the 6-foot righty will look to make up for lost time. He has No. 2 starter upside, but significant durability concerns and lost developmental time make that a very unlikely outcome at this point.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Velocity in mid-90s, rehab start on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jeffries (elbow) is back to throwing 95 mph off a mound and will make his first rehab start in an Arizona League game next week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jefferies had Tommy John surgery last year, and the rehab start would represent his first taste of game action since April 13, 2017. The 22-year-old right-hander was only able to log two appearances (one start) at the High-A level before his injury, generating a 2.57 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over seven innings.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: On pace for midseason return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies (elbow) could join the rotation at High-A Stockton by midseason, MLB.com's Mike Rosenbaum reports.

This is excellent news for the promising right-hander, as it sounds like his rehab from April 2017 Tommy John surgery is going as planned. He logged seven innings at High-A last season before getting hurt, so he may spend the whole 2018 season there once he's healthy. Jefferies has mid-rotation upside, but staying healthy and building up his workload will be imperative if he is to make it as a starter.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Throwing off the mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies threw off the mound Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery back in April.

Throwing off the mound approximately nine and a half months after Tommy John surgery is right in line with the normal recovery timeline. That puts the 2016 37th-overall pick in line to return to game action sometime early in the 2018 season, assuming his recovery continues to progress on schedule.

Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Set for Tommy John
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferies will undergo Tommy John surgery, Melissa Lockard of OaklandClubhouse.com reports.

This is a tough blow for the Athletics' second pick (37th overall) in last year's draft. Jefferies allowed six runs (two earned) across seven innings (two appearances) with Stockton before landing on the DL. He'll be out for at least 12 months while recovering from the injury.
