The 2021 graduate had an impressive outing at the 2019 Fall Top Prospect Games. On the mound, Jung displayed a repeatable delivery. Working mainly from the stretch. Starts with the hands at the belt and works off a mid high knee lift. Smooth early hand separation and works down hill with low effort from a high ¾ arm slot. FB peaked at 80 MPH and SL was an impressive pitch with late lateral movement. Jung has a projectable frame and is a must follow as he continues to develop.

CB has tight spin ranging from 68-70 MPH. Showed feel for a CH at 70-71 MPH. The 2021 graduate has tons of upside and is a must follow.

Jung is a 5-foot-10, 150-pound right-handed pitcher and first baseman. He ran an 8.74 60. Offensively- Sets up with feet over shoulder width apart. Upward stance with bat tilted at 60 degree angle. Short swing and recoils at contact. Recorded exit velocity 66 MPH. Defensively- Approaches ball with glove out in front and crouched over. Receives ball with fluid transfer into a balanced throwing position. Recorded throwing velocity of 75 MPH. More of an outfield approach then his listed position at 1B. Pitching- Middle rubber setup with small side step. Balance point to chest with 3/4 arm slot and arm side drift on plant. Stride could use some work as it should be more direct to catcher which is causing inaccuracy and pitches to drift off plate to arm side. Fastball peaked at 74 MPH. Curveball ranged from 63-64 MPH with slight 12-6 break. Change up was 67-68 MPH. Young kid with some promise if he works on improving mechanics. Projects better on the mound at this point but plenty of time for that to be sorted out.
