Hmmmm. Interesting stuff here via the Twitter, as late this morning an excited tweet from @JMontana41 was posted and then quickly deleted. The account belongs to Jeremy Jeffress, who has made four appearances for the Buffalo Bisons this year, putting up a tasty WHIP of 2.41, after beginning the season with the Jays.
Because it’s the internet, of course, some fans caught the tweet before Jeffress took it down:

Now, what does it possibly mean?
Let’s assume it actually means he’s been called up– a bit of a leap, yes, but a fair enough one, seeing as this is all speculation anyway.
With the bench as short as it already is, they can’t possibly be calling up Jeffress up in case something funny came back on Melky Cabrera’s MRI, so I would think it would have to be something to do with a pitcher. Brandon Morrow told reporters yesterday that he was fine, so I don’t think a back-dated DL stint for him would be it– though you never know.
Uh… Brad Lincoln getting shipped back down to the minors, then? Mickey Storey getting D’d FA?
Either one of those moves seems about right, I’d figure. And no offence to those guys, but that sounds way preferable to another damn injury.
So… there’s that? I guess we’ll find out shortly, most likely. Are you as completely uninspired by this juicy tidbit as I am?
