The Cardinals acquired Zeuch from the Blue Jays on Sunday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. The Blue Jays' return for Zeuch hasn't yet been reported, but he's not expected to fetch much after Toronto cast him off its 40-man roster Tuesday. A 2016 first-round pick, Zeuch appeared in five games (three starts) for Toronto this season, logging a 6.60 ERA and 2.00 WHIP across 15 innings. Zeuch has two minor-league options remaining, so St. Louis will presumably stash him at Triple-A Memphis and have him get stretched out for starting duty in the event the big club needs to add an arm to the rotation at any point in the second half.
Zeuch was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Zeuch has been in the minors since mid-June and has now lost his spot on the 40-man roster. The 25-year-old should remain at Triple-A Buffalo if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
Zeuch was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports. The right-hander surrendered three runs (two earned) over three innings during Thursday's spot start and will make his way back to the minors. Zeuch should rejoin the rotation at Buffalo, where he has a 4.37 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 24:8 K:BB across 35 innings.
Zeuch took a no-decision during Thursday's loss to the Yankees after surrendering three runs (two earned) on five hits and a pair of walks while striking out two across three innings. Zeuch, who was recalled ahead of Thursday's start, allowed a run to score in the first inning due to his own throwing error, then gave up a two-run shot to Gio Urshela in the third. The 25-year-old threw 65 pitches, including 44 for strikes. Zeuch had played with Triple-A Buffalo since the end of April, where he recorded a 4.37 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across seven appearances (six starts). He's expected to fill in for Steven Matz (illness) while he spends time on the COVID-19 injured list. Zeuch is projected to get another chance next week at Miami.
