Brewers' Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) set for rehab assignment

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday at Triple-A San Antonio.

What It Means:

Jeffress has a chance to potentially secure the Brewers' closing gig by the end of the month if all goes well.

numberFire's models currently expect Jeffress to record a 3.00 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 75 strikeouts and 28 walks across 69 innings this season.
