Jeffress posts cryptic tweets about free agent status originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Earlier this month, the Nationals abruptly released former Cubs reliever Jeremy Jeffress mere weeks after signing the veteran right-hander. Washington general manager Mike Rizzo attributed the move to "personnel reasons" unrelated to on-field performance, declining to elaborate.

Jeffress remains a free agent nearly two weeks later, and on Wednesday, the 33-year-old posted some cryptic tweets about his status.

That second tweet follows another cryptic message Jeffress posted on March 7, the day Washington released him, about Joshua Kusnick, his former agent.

Jeffress hasn't offered any clues as to what the messages mean. The right-hander is coming off a fine 2020 season in which he was a finalist for NL Reliever of the Year, turning in a 1.54 ERA in 22 games, converting 8 of his 10 save tries.

The Cubs have shown no interest in re-signing Jeffress.
