ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers reliever Jeremy Jeffress, twice suspended in the minor leagues for violating drug rules, was away from the team Friday following his overnight arrest in Dallas on a drunken driving charge.The club placed Jeffress on the restricted list before a game against Cleveland, but general manager Jon Daniels said he expected the former Milwaukee closer acquired in a trade Aug. 1 to be back with the team Saturday.Daniels said the AL West leaders were exploring the matter while Dallas police and Major League Baseball also conducted investigations.Im glad no one was hurt from it, Daniels said. I dont want to minimize the severity of what couldve happened. Beyond that, we need to get our arms around some more of the specifics regarding the due process.A Dallas police spokesman said an officer made a traffic stop at 2:24 a.m. Friday and arrested the 28-year-old Jeffress after detecting a sign of intoxication.Online records for the Dallas County jail show he was booked around 5:15 a.m. on a driving while intoxicated charge and that he was released on $500 bond. No attorney information was available for Jeffress.Daniels said he spoke to Jeffress after the arrest, as did Texas catcher Jonathan Lucroy, the primary player acquired in the trading deadline deal with the Brewers.I know he fights some stuff on the personal level, Lucroy said. Whenever youre dealing with stuff in your personal life like that, that becomes way more importaant than the game.dddddddddddd And we have to help him get through whatever hes trying to get through, to help him be OK in life.The Brewers drafted Jeffress as the 16th selection overall in 2006. The right-hander was suspended for 50 games in 2007 and for 100 games in 2009, both times when he was in the minors.Jeffress made his major league debut with the Brewers in 2010 before getting traded to Kansas City that offseason. He also spent time with Toronto before Milwaukee brought him back as a free agent two years ago.The hard-throwing right-hander became the closer this season, recording 27 of his 28 career saves. As one of the setup men for Texas closer Sam Dyson, Jeffress has no record and no saves with a 4.00 ERA in nine appearances with the Rangers.The arrest came after the first game of a 10-game homestand that includes Cleveland, Seattle and Houston. The Rangers have a slight edge on the Indians for the best record in the AL, while the Mariners and Astros are their top pursuers in the AL West.Theres never a good time for something like this, Daniels said. I dont even want to put it into baseball terms. Im more concerned now in trying to get our arms around the situation and look at the real-life element first, baseball second.To fill Jeffress spot, Texas recalled left-hander Dario Alvarez from Triple-A Round Rock.
