Blue Jays Outright Jeffress To Minors

Today's minor moves…

  • The Blue Jays outrighted 25-year-old righty Jeremy Jeffress, tweets Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca.  Jeffress had been designated for assignment on April 6th to open a 40-man roster spot for David Bush.  The Jays had acquired him from the Royals for cash considerations in November.  Jeffress, a former first-round pick of the Brewers, had joined Kansas City in the December 2010 Zack Greinke trade.  Jeffress has a big fastball, though he's dealt with a pair of suspensions for marijuana.  He posted a 4.97 ERA, 9.5 K/9, 3.9 BB/9, and 0.62 HR/9 in 58 Triple-A innings last year.
