Player Profile-#31-Jeff Stevens


Jeff Stevens has a 1-0 record in the majors. It doesn’t seem like much but he is really more of a middle-reliever so he has a pretty solid excuse. Stevens attended and pitched in Division 1 at Loyola Marymount University. In 2005 Jeff was picked in the sixth round (182nd overall) by the Cincinnati Reds. After climbing to class A Dayton in 2006, the Reds sent him to the Cleveland Indians organization to complete a Brandon Phillips trade. He finished 2006 with the Single A Lake County Captains. He was promoted to the Double A Akron Aeros for 2007. During the 2008 season he was promoted to the then AAA affiliate of the Indians, the Buffalo Bisons.

Jeff Stevens was chosen to go to Beijing for the 2008 Olympics pitching for team USA. After that, Stevens spent 2009, 2010, and 2011 with the Iowa Cubs of the Pacific Coast League. Stevens also pitched a little for the Chicago Cubs during these years, making 33 total MLB relief appearences. This year he made his way into the Mets organization and back to Buffalo for the 2012 season. This quadruple A reliever will probably be in the majors soon, so let’s all root for him.

    Wow, this guys been all over the Minors. Must have been a thrill pitching in the Olympics, too. Baseball never should have been dropped from the Olympic games, imo. Maybe I’ll get to see him pitch next week.
