Jenkins looked pretty impressive during spring training. He pitched 6.2 alling 5 hits, 3 earned, with no walks and 5 strikeouts. Last year he had a 2.70 ERA in 33 innings, 3 starts and 7 relief appearances. 31 hits, 6 walks and 15 strikeouts.
Jeffress made 2 relief appearances for the Jays, in our first 5 games, allowing 5 hits, 3 walks with 2 strikeouts in 2.1 innings and an 11.57 ERA. He had a tough time in spring training, walking 9 and giving up 12 hits in 12 innings, with 8 strikeouts. Jeffress has a great arm and had a terrific September, after being called up last year, pitching 9.1 scoreless innings, allowing 7 hits, 3 walks with 11 strikeouts.
I hope he clears waivers, I hate giving up on someone that can throw that hard, but maybe he's had enough chances here.
Personally I would have rather seen them call up John Stilson but I'm happy for Jenkins.
