Number 5 moment
Jeremy Jeffress is reactivated and joins the team just in time to join the Rangers before they clinched the A.L. West title.
Jeffress was the relief pitcher that was included in the Jonathan Lucroy deal the Rangers made with the Milwaukee Brewers at the trade deadline. Through the first month with the rangers he had pitched 9 innings and only allowed 7 hits, 4 runs, 5 walks, and 6 strikeouts. He recorded 6 holds during those 9 games he appeared in.
If you remember Jeffress had been charged with a DUI back at the end of August. Jeffress then almost immediately chose to go to rehab but the reason was not made public. He completed what he needed to in rehab and was able to still workout and stay in baseball shape.
Jeffress has been very humble and straightforward with the media and even saying that he is still a “sick man”. He understood his mistakes and he is trying to do the best for himself and the team. Since returning to the team he has been in 2 games while pitching 3.1 innings, allowing 2 hits, with 1 walk and 1 strikeout. The biggest moment happened on the 28th when he recorded his first win with the Texas Rangers and the record tying 41st bullpen win for the Rangers.
