2011 MLB Draft Tracker: Brewers Select Longhorn Ace Jungmann

Milwaukee Brewers: Taylor Jungmann (RHP, University of Texas)

Depleted by trades and promotions, the Brewers farm system is very thin and they need help in all departments. Taylor Jungmann has dominated college competition for the Longhorns with a 90-95 MPH fastball, slider, and changeup. Although some scouts worried early in his career that his mechanics would result in an injury, he's been very durable thus far, and his 6-6, 220 pound body has absorbed innings without much trouble, though he looked a bit tired in his last start for Texas according to some observers.

Jungmann projects as a number two starter if all goes well. He isn't just a thrower; he's got a great feel for pitching, and has thrived under pressure in college. His statistical dominance makes him attactive from a performance basis. He instantly becomes Milwaukee's best pitching prospect as soon as he signs, and he could be in the majors within two years.
