BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Milwaukee’s first pick in the 2011 draft, Jungmann has ideal size, a smooth delivery, and decent velocity, but didn’t miss many bats in his minor-league debut. He was effective but far from dominant in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League, working his low-90s fastball down in the zone to generate plenty of groundballs, few home runs, and not many strikeouts. Jungmann’s slurvy breaking pitch and changeup are works in progress, but he throws strikes and doesn’t beat himself. It’s early, but so far, Jungmann profiles as more of an innings-eater than an ace.
2012 Jungmann is a polished fastball/slider pitcher who is considered by most to have the upside of a mid-rotation starter, despite touching 95 MPH at times. He'll need to add consistency to his changeup to reach that level, but his huge frame and collegiate track record suggest he'll soon be a workhorse.

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jed Bradley and Taylor Jungmann: what gives?
(Tyler from Indy)
The good news for Brewers fans: I'll see Tyler Thornburg and Johnny Hellweg this week. The bad news: I don't have a lot of positive on Bradley and Jungmann. I saw Bradley in camp; his stuff was actually slightly better than last season, but it's still very fringe. 88-91 with a little armside life/sink but was up in the zone. The slider has good shape but was soft. Just fringy all around.

I've seen Jungmann a ton, from his college days to a couple times as a pro. Stuff-wise, the biggest plus for Jungmann out of Texas was his fastball. He could sit comfortably at 92-94 with plus life, reaching 95-97 whenever he got into a jam. It looked like a future bat-destroying pitch. The breaking ball was always just okay, and his changeup came and went. Now Jungmann has been more 89-91 in pro ball, and he'll pop a 93 here and there. It looks like a potential back-end starter. He is a competitor who knows how to pitch, and that'll help him, but the stuff has taken a step back, and he hasn't rediscovered his college velocity. (Jason Cole)

PITCHf/x Pitcher Profile

A Collaboration between BrooksBaseball.net and Baseball Prospectus - Pitch classifications provided by Pitch Info LLC
