Chicago Cubs: Jeremy Jeffress primed for a big year

The Chicago CubsJeremy Jeffress is headed for a big year. A shoulder injury sidelined him in the first three weeks. Then in August, he had a hip injury. By September 1, he was released. Will he get it? Or will he ‘choke’ on it? I bet he capitalizes on it, and here’s why.

In 2018, he had an impressive year. He had an 8-1 record with a 1.29 ERA. His ERA+ was 317, and his WHIP was 0.991–the lowest in his career. He was an All-Star, and things were good. In 2019? A different story.
