Jemiola came out of the chute strong, flashing some 94-96 mph heat early in the spring, but his stock has slid precipitously since then. That's partly because he missed about three weeks after hitting hit by a pitch on his shoulder, and since he returned his stuff and command have dropped off. He still sits in the 88-90 mph range and bumps 91-92, and his slurvy slider has a chance to be average down the line. He has some feel for a changeup that he uses sparingly. Jemiola has become something of a mess mechanically--he has a short stride, an inconsistent arm slot and release point, a tendency to decelerate his arm and then recoil. Scouts seem content to let him to go to UC Riverside, where he has a chance to develop into a quality pick in three years, because his arm strength is undeniable.
