April 22, 2013 Jeurys does exactly one thing well - he throws hard. Very hard. Unfortunately, at this point he has absolutely no idea how to pitch. Forget about spotting the fastball. It's a total mystery where the ball is going to end up after it leaves his hand. Can't even say he's "effectively wild" because when the ball finally ends up in the strike zone, it's frighteningly straight and hittable.
Can't give up yet on a kid who can routinely light up a radar gun at 98, but it's going to be awfully tough to watch him throw this season. I can't call what he does "pitching" because right now he's nothing but a thrower.
September 25, 2015 I was telling people that Jeurys was gonna turn into a great closer for the future and he has arrived this season in spectacular fashion! Amazing how improved command can make a world of a difference! Too bad he got snubbed from being a 2015 All-Star.
