Holy crap: Jeremy Jeffress

Saw this in BPro, buried in an article about the Brewers.

They stayed to watch the next pitcher, right-hander Jeremy Jeffress, the Brewers' first-round draft pick in June.

"There was heat in more ways than one," said Yost, referring to Jeffress' fastball.

Yost said Jeffress' first five pitches were clocked at 100, 99, 100, 101 and 99 mph. Jeffress went 2 2/3 innings, allowing no hits with two walks and three strikeouts.

"You could hear him warming up," said Melvin, referring to the popping of the catcher's mitt. "The ball is easy out of his hand, and he throws strikes."

It's quite a bit early to tell, but I really hope we don't regret popping Kiker over Jeffress (a la Kasmir).
