Jobe, the third overall pick of the 2020 draft, will miss a good chunk of his second professional season with what the team says is lumbar spine discomfort. The 20-year-old right-hander pitched to a 4.52 ERA across 18 Single-A starts in 2022 before recovering to a 1.15 ERA across three outings at the High-A level. He was a controversial pick ahead of the likes of Marcelo Mayer and despite possessing elite raw stuff and spin rates this injury is a significant setback in what was supposed to be an important season for the youngster.
