Jungmann, Bradley off to hot starts in Minors

ATLANTA -- Taylor Jungmann is tied for the Florida State League lead in victories, while Brevard County teammate Jed Bradley has yet to allow an earned run in the Class A Advanced circuit.

Minor League Baseball hasn't proven to be a difficult transition from college for the Brewers' two 2011 first-round Draft picks after they signed too late to get started last season.

Jungmann, taken at No. 12 overall out of Texas, is 2-0 with a 3.09 ERA in 11 2/3 innings over his two starts. The right-hander has struck out seven and walked five.

Bradley, the 15th overall pick from Georgia Tech, has been even better. The left-hander has allowed just six hits and an unearned run over 13 innings in his first two starts, striking out 11 and walking two.

Bradley is ranked as the Brewers' No. 2 prospect by MLB.com, and is No. 96 on the Top 100 list. Jungmann is right behind Bradley as the No. 3 prospect on the Brewers.

Milwaukee's top four prospects are all starting pitchers. Wily Peralta, ranked No. 1, is 0-1 with a 2.45 ERA and 10 strikeouts to five walks in two games for Triple-A Nashville. No. 4 Tyler Thornburg is 0-0 with a 0.82 ERA and 13 strikeouts to three walks in two starts for Double-A Huntsville.
