Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) lifted from spring debut

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) was pulled from a Cactus League appearance Wednesday with an apparent injury.

What It Means:

Jeffress lasted just three pitches in his spring debut after previously being held out due to discomfort in his throwing shoulder. It's obviously an ominous sign for the 31-year-old right-hander. He posted a stellar 1.29 ERA over 76 2/3 innings last season while converting 15 saves in 20 opportunities.

numberFire's models currently expect Jeffress to record a 3.00 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 75 strikeouts and 28 walks across 70 inning in 2019.
