  • Jeremy Jeffress Lands With Nationals

    The Washington Nationals agreed to a minor league deal with free-agent relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress on Monday that includes an invite to spring training, according to a source. Jeffress would earn $1.25 million with another potential $1.25 million in performance bonuses if he makes the team's big-league roster. The 33-year-old right-hander spent the 2020 season with the Chicago Cubs, posting a fantastic 1.54 ERA and 0.94 WHIP while striking out 17 and walking 12 in 23 1/3 relief innings. He also tallied eight saves. Jeffress was an All-Star in 2018 with the Milwaukee Brewers when he had a 1.29 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 15 saves, but he imploded in his last full season in 2019 (5.02 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with one save). The hard-throwing righty has the potential to win a setup job in Washington's bullpen, but with Brad Hand set to be the closer, Jeffress would have very minimal fantasy appeal.

  • Mets Remain In On Jeremy Jeffress

    In addition to free-agent relief pitcher Trevor Rosenthal, the New York Mets remain interested in 33-year-old free-agent reliever Jeremy Jeffress. Following a subpar 2019 season, the right-hander posted a 1.54 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP and 17:12 K:BB in 23 1/3 innings pitched for the Cubs in 2020. While Jeffress doesn't have the upside of Rosenthal, he still recorded 15 saves and 18 holds for the Brewers as recently as 2018 with a 1.29 ERA in 76 2/3 innings. With Seth Lugo (elbow) shut down for six weeks, the Mets are in need of another reliever. Jeffress could be a fallback option for the Mets if they fail to land Rosenthal. Since Trevor May will serve as the primary setup man to closerEdwin Diaz until Lugo returns, Jeffress would have limited fantasy value should the Mets sign him for the 2021 campaign.
