Taylor Jungmann, Relief Pitcher

Embattled starter Taylor Jungmann made the Brewers’ bullpen out of spring training this year, and his experience this year will be an interesting case study in the starter-to-reliever conversion project. Failed starters have repeatedly made successful transitions to the bullpen (see Blanton, Joe), and this is a route we are seeing more pitchers take as their rotation chances fade...

Milwaukee Brewers: Will Taylor Jungmann ever recover?

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Taylor Jungmann was a fun player to watch last season. His towering frame, solid fastball and looping breaking ball gave plenty of opposing hitters fits, and by the end of last season it seemed Jungmann would be a long-term mainstay in the middle of the Brewers starting rotation. 2016 has not been kind to Jungmann. His struggles came early and often...

The TKO of Taylor Jungmann

On the whole, 2015 was a season largely devoid of bright spots on the field for the Milwaukee Brewers. But the lone exception to this nightmare was the brilliant debut of rookie pitcher Taylor Jungmann. Jungmann debuted last June, and upon his arrival in Milwaukee he proceeded to blow the lid off of everybody’s expectations: a 2.49 ERA through August, a July in which he failed...

Is Taylor Jungmann for Real?

Every year, a number of starting pitchers seemingly come out of nowhere to become significant contributors at the major-league level. Sometimes, as in the case of, say, Jacob deGrom, the sudden evolution at the major-league level is real and sustainable. In the case of the majority of these short-term success stories, the league adjusts, the pitcher is unable to, and either disappears...

Taylor Jungmann and Diminishing Marginal Utility

When faced with batters on base, Milwaukee Brewers righty Taylor Jungmann goes to his sinker more and throws lower in the zone. He hasn’t given up a home run on the sinker, and the pitch produces ground balls nearly three-quarters of the time.
