The Milwaukee Brewers will reportedly release struggling reliever Jeremy Jeffress, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Rosenthal adds that the initial roster move will be announced as designated for assignment, with the official release of Jeffress to follow.

After playing an integral role in Milwaukee's bullpen last season, the right-hander has authored a 5.02 ERA and 3.97 FIP over 52 innings pitched.
