Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress pitched a scoreless ninth innings with a strikeout to record his 24th save of the season during the Brewers' 6-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, July 28.
Fantasy Tip: Jeffress is having an excellent season on top of the 24 saves with a 2.13 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and 33 strikeouts over 42 1/3 innings, which makes him a middling relief option going forward. However, he's also been involved in trade rumors, which could take him out of save situations. It isn't out of the question to try and trade him now.

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith and Atlanta Braves RP Chris Withrow are among the bullpen options being monitored by the New York Mets ahead of the trade deadline. The club views adding another reliever as being "more easily attainable" as opposed to a starting pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: It would be a boost for each Withrow and Smith if one were to land on the Mets, at least in leagues that score holds, as both would get more opportunities at such compared to their current employers. Jeffress, however, would receive a huge downgrade, as he would no longer be closing like he does for Milwaukee, and effectively so in that role.

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress and RP Will Smith have been scouted by the San Francisco Giants.
Fantasy Tip: The Giants have been wavering on Santiago Casilla as their closer as he has blown five saves in 26 chances. Jeffress could come over and have a chance to slot in the ninth. However, odds are that he'll set up if he's dealt. Smith would only gain value if Jeffress is dealt and Smith is not. Both are worth owning universally.

The New York Mets have expressed interest in Milwaukee Brewers RPs Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith, according to an industry source.
Fantasy Tip: Jeffress is 2-2 with a 2.35 ERA and 23 saves in 40 appearances this season, with nine walks and 28 strikeouts, while Smith is 1-2 with a 2.12 ERA in 19 games, with five walks and 15 strikeouts in 17 innings. A potential trade to New York would be more damaging to Jeffress' fantasy value, since he would no longer be closing games due to the presence of Jeurys Familia. Both relievers would be ticketed for setup roles if the Mets acquire them.

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress is very much available for trade, and the Miami Marlins pursued him before they acquired RP Fernando Rodney.
Fantasy Tip: If Jeffress is dealt, it will likely be to serve as a setup man, which would void most of his fantasy value. Will Smith would likely be next in line, but he, too, could be on the trade block. Smith is worth picking up if you're save speculating, but his K-rate is way down.
