He's 26, but in 61.1 IP this year gave up 37 hits and struck out 94. Walks are a little high but not terrible. Career minor league K/9 of 10.9. Worth taking a flyer on.

Feyereisen, a native of River Falls, Wisconsin, posted a promising 2.49 ERA with 94 strikeouts in 61 1/3 innings of relief this season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He was a 16th-round pick of the Indians in the 2014 MLB Draft and got dealt to the Yankees in July 2016 as part of the Andrew Miller trade.

Yes, JP is eligible to play for the Brewers this season.
He is not eligible for a post season roster if the Brewers make the playoffs this year...

I really like the pickup from the Brewer perspective..

Mid 90's fastball with an occasional 100 MPH he also throws a slider which is below average still a work in progress and a very rarely used change up which is probably horrible. He will need to improve on either his slider or his change up if he is going to be a MLB pitcher. He profiles as a reliever as he only has one pitch that is at least average everything else is below average. If he can get his slider to an average pitch he should be a good RHP option out of the bullpen.

He can be wild at times and will walk batters but he does strike out a lot of batters so far in ~60IP he has struck out 94 and has walked 31. Currently has a WHIP of 1.11 and an ERA of 2.49 in AAA.

Feyereisen will also need to be added to the 40-man this off season as he is rule 5 eligible I believe.

Yes, for sure.
Not much opportunity for him to move up in the Yankees organization, not with their stacked bullpen, and they weren’t gonna add him to their 40 to protect him rule 5 wise this offseason, Yankees really need the international bonus $, so just a great trade by Stearns. I think there going to drop another off the 40 for him(Saladino?)And bring him up.

Really like the trade. If he is any type of reliable bullpen piece, we have him for 6 years. His BB/9 is concerning though. Not much risk in this trade, but quite a bit of upside from the Brewers’ side of the trade.

Great low risk buy. Only real cost is possibly a 40 man roster spot to protect him from Rule 5 draft. I wonder if they will call him up this Sept to evaluate to see if they want to keep him. Saladino or T.Williams could be dropped from the 40 to make room.

Is he allowed to be added to the 40 man roster this season? Given that this trade is after the trade deadline

it was a trade of players that weren't on 40-man rosters in 2019--that's what allowed for the trade to happen.

either club can add the newly acquired player to its 40-man roster at any time. i misread the previous post for eligibility on postseason play, and have since edited it.

neither player is eligible for postseason play, but could be used through game 162, or game 163, if necessary.

Got it, thank you for the clarification.

There is a back door way that you can get anyone onto your postseason roster. Kansas City even did this once to get one of their minor league pitching prospects into a World Series game in 2015. What you do is pick someone on your current MLB roster who you know you don't want to use and put them on the 60-day injured list. You're allowed to replace injured players with anyone from your entire organization regardless of what level they were at. The only drawback is the "injured" player is done for the season and can't be recalled for any reason.

I believe that loophole was partially closed with the trade deadline changes this year.
Yes a player on the 60 day IL can be replaced by someone in the organization but for post-season eligibility that player had to be part of the organization (not necessarily on the 40 man roster) before 9/1.

JP would not meet that 9/1 deadline (being acquired on 9/2/19)..

My name is Steve Manfred (no relation to Rob), and I work in the press box at the baseball field here in River Falls, WI for our high school, Legion, and amateur town ball teams. I know JP's parents a little bit through that, and I've been keeping a close eye on his progress. It had been a frustrating year from our perspective in that he was putting up the best numbers of any reliever at the Yankees' AAA club and got named to the All-Star Team for the International League, yet because they didn't have him on their 40-man roster and had a lot invested in those who they already did have on it, he never got a call-up. I also get the feeling that someone at their MLB level has certain "projection" pigeonholes they put people in and stubbornly stick to them even when the evidence in the real games is saying something else. Certainly the Yankees' fan forum that's the equivalent of this one was full of fans who wanted to see Feyereisen get a call-up as opposed to the guys they did bring up, and they were upset with this trade.

His season was stellar from April to July, with his WHIP even going just under 1.00 at one point. They always put him in in "high-leverage" situations, as they call them, protecting a tie or small lead in the late innings. He stumbled just a bit in late July and early August, particularly in a string of extra inning games they wound up in, where this year in the Int. League they've been using the "pace of play" runner rule, where you start extra innings with a runner on 2nd base. His walks rate climbed somewhat trying to keep that extra runner put, and one of his two losses was in one of these games. (iirc, they did an intentional walk to fill first base, then put an extreme right shift on the next batter and he poked one up the left side where there was no one to field it, scoring the go-ahead runs) He finally solved that problem the third time it came around, and then his late August to September was more like his early part of the season had been. He finished with 10 wins, more than anyone else on that club.

I saw upthread that someone has quoted that scouting report on him that basically says he really needs to work on his slider. That report is outdated - I first read that language before this season started, and it's been cut-and-pasted by people into other reports and stories multiple times. A major reason he had such great success this season was he had in fact worked on and greatly improved his slider.

Two days before the trade, he was named to Team USA. I suppose the Brewers will now have to consent to his participation, but if they give it, he'll be pitching with Team USA in a qualification tournament taking place in Mexico this coming November. This is to qualify the USA to be in the tournament at the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. Win this tournament, and the US in in. There are two more chances to get in after this.

A couple of other facts about him you don't see in the usual media... he played for one summer in amateur ball when he was 18 and just before he went to UW-Stevens Point. This was for the River Falls Fighting Fish that won the WBA state championship that year, 2011.
He also played in the Northwoods League for the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters. He was in just a handful of games in 2012, but played a full summer season with them in 2013, where they used him as a closer. His season line there was 22 games, 31.0 IP, 17 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 9 BB, 38 SO, 3 wins, 1 loss, 11 saves, 1.16 ERA, and he made the All-Star Game in Eau Claire that year. (got to see that one myself - pitched a 1-2-3 inning, iirc)

The rest of his career is easily look-up-able as it's all been with teams in the affiliated minor leagues, first in the Cleveland system, then in the Yankees.

He's had one significant injury. In 2018 his performance took a serious downturn in August, and it turned out it was because he had a bone chip in his throwing elbow. Yankees medical staff had that removed in the off-season, and as far as I know he's had no ill effects since. Certainly this season's numbers don't show anything wrong.

Thanks for the first hand account, Steve. Always nice to have that sort of context.

Stearns & company have been pretty decent mining guys from other organizations that were blocked for whatever reason & just needed an opportunity. Hopefully JP is another such case.

I originally learned about this loophole from reading Lavelle E. Neil III, the Minnesota Twins daily beat writer for the Minneapolis Star Tribune (also has a vote for the Hall of Fame). I asked him today on Twitter if what you said about the postseason eligibility loophole changing this year is true or not, and he’s just answered me to say it’s not. JP, or anyone else traded like this, would indeed be postseason eligible if they are promoted replacing someone on the 60-day IL. (Not that I expect this to happen, of course.)

EDITED TO ADD:
And now he’s just tweeted me again saying sorry, that was a typo, and such players cannot play in the postseason after all. Never mind everyone, as you were.
