Taylor Jungman to pitch in Japan in 2018

With the announcement that their deal with Boone Logan was complete, the Brewers also alerted everyone that reliever Taylor Jungmann was being released.

Jungman, 28, will head to Japan. No word on which NPB club Jungmann will sign with. The move leaves the Brewers 40 man roster full for the time.

Jungmann held a 3.06 ERA in 123 1/3 innings at the minors this season while compiling a 113/56 K/BB split between Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Over the last two seasons Jungmann has appeared in just nine big league games where he has allowed 24 earned runs in 27 1/3 innings. His rookie season of 2015 where he was 9-8 with a 3.77 ERA in 119 1/3 innings seems to be getting further and further in the past.
