RHP Jeremy Jeffress promoted to Huntsville

Since returning in early June from a 100-game suspension that came as a result of a failed drug test, right-handed reliever Jeremy Jeffress has been impressive on and off the field.

As a result, the Brewers have added him to the 40-man roster and given him the opportunity to quickly climb the ladder through their Minor League organization.
On Monday, Jeffress took another step, as he was promoted from Class-A Advanced Brevard County to Huntsville, the Brewers’ affiliate at the Double-A level.
In five appearances with Class-A Wisconsin, the Brewers first-round pick from 2006 did not allow a run or a hit, while striking out 14 against three walks over eight innings. 
After he was promoted to Class A-Advanced Brevard County, he was not as sharp, allowing six earned runs on 10 hits over 10 innings. Jeffress still recorded 14 strikeouts while walking seven batters, though.
Monday’s move comes as right-hander Mike Fiers has been placed on the disabled list at Huntsville, retroactive to July 22. Taking Jeffress’ place at Brevard County will be lefty Mike Ramlow, who has been reinstated from the DL.
Jeffress will travel on Tuesday from Melbourne to Huntsville and will be in uniform for the Stars on Wednesday night when they host Mississippi at 7 p.m. CT.

The man states that it is beettr to vote for a pro-choice Christian than a pro-life Mormon. Yes, Romney has been smart to just overlook this classless man’s opinion. And Romney’s supporters shouldn’t focus on this. We are not victims. This is really not that big of an issue. But to say this guy isn’t a bigot cuts against the weight of the evidence in my opinion.
