Jungmann impressive in intrasquad debut
PHOENIX -- Pitching in a Brewers uniform for the first time, right-hander Taylor Jungmann retired every hitter he faced in a two-inning intrasquad stint Saturday.

He struck out three batters -- Rickie Weeks, Ryan Braun and Mat Gamel. Jungmann, one of Milwaukee's two first-round picks in last year's Draft, whiffed Braun on a fastball to end the first inning.

"He hasn't seen live pitching in a long time," Jungmann said. "I don't think anything of that."

Jungmann said he has focused on his changeup in camp and was particularly pleased with that pitch on Saturday. Manager Ron Roenicke was impressed with the 22-year-old's poise on the mound, even if it was "only" a camp game.

"All it is right now, at this point in the season, is throwing strikes," Jungmann said. "Other than that, you try to keep it simple. ... I've been looking forward to this since the end [of his assignment in the Brewers' fall instructional league]. I hate the offseason because you aren't competing or anything. That's what I love to do."
