Top T.J. Zeuch News

  • Cardinals' T.J. Zeuch: Dealt to St. Louis

    The Cardinals acquired Zeuch from the Blue Jays on Sunday, Robert Murray of 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.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: DFA'd by Toronto

    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.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Returns to minors

    Zeuch was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Mitch Bannon of 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.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: No-decision Thursday

    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.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Called up ahead of start

    Zeuch was recalled by the Blue Jays ahead of Thursday's start against the Yankees.

    Zeuch had been with Triple-A Buffalo since the end of April, and he posted a 4.37 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 35 innings across seven appearances (six starts). He'll now return to the major-league roster to fill in while Steven Matz (illness) is on the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Starting Thursday

    The Blue Jays plan to call up Zeuch from Triple-A Buffalo to start Thursday's game against the Yankees, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Zeuch made four appearances for the Blue Jays in the first few weeks of the season but was sent to Triple-A at the end of April. During seven appearances (six starts) in the minors, he posted a 4.37 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 35 innings. The right-hander will now return to the major-league roster and could join the rotation in the near future since Steven Matz (illness) recently tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Reinstated, sent down

    Zeuch (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Zeuch spent the minimum amount of time on the 10-day IL due to right shoulder tendinitis, but he'll report to Triple-A to begin the minor-league season. He posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 12 innings to begin the year.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: To IL with shoulder tendinitis

    Zeuch was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder tendinitis.

    He has a 6.75 ERA and 1.92 WHIP with more walks (seven) than strikeouts (six) through 12 innings. Santiago Espinal was called up in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Takes loss in relief Sunday

    Zeuch (0-2) gave up two runs on three hits and a walk while fanning one Sunday against the Royals. He was tagged with the loss.

    Zeuch entered the game in the seventh with the scored tied and had a shaky outing. He was greeted with a Carlos Santana single and a two-run shot from Salvador Perez before Jorge Soler doubled to left field. He retired Hanser Alberto and Hunter Dozier but walked Michael Taylor and Kyle Isbel to load the bases with two outs before retiring Nicky Lopez on a groundout. Zeuch has struggled badly this season and has given up a least two runs in each of his last three outings, which translates to a 6.75 ERA across 12.1 innings in four appearances (two starts).

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Surrenders four runs in no-decision

    Zeuch gave up four runs on four hits and two walks over four innings during Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Yankees. He had two strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.

    The 25-year-old limited New York to one run through three frames but was lifted after allowing three runs during the fourth inning. The right-hander was pressed into starting duty Wednesday after Ross Stripling was scratched with forearm tightness, so Zeuch could make another turn through the rotation early next week at Boston. He's given up 11 runs (seven earned) on 13 hits with a 5:6 K:BB over 11.1 innings through three starts this season.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Making Wednesday's start

    Zeuch is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Ben Wagner of Sportsnet reports.

    Toronto had previously listed Ross Stripling as its probable starter for the series finale, but manager Charlie Montoyo said the right-hander was scratched after developing forearm tightness. The Blue Jays are viewing Stripling as day-to-day for now, but given that this sort of injury often results in a player moving to the injured list, Zeuch could have some staying power in Toronto's rotation. After he was hammered for seven runs (three earned) in 3.1 innings against the Angels last Friday, Zeuch looked like he might have been on the outs for a rotation spot after Robbie Ray (elbow) was activated earlier this week and with Nate Pearson (groin) closing in on a return from the IL.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Surrenders seven runs

    Zeuch (0-1) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Angels, surrendering seven runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out two across 3.1 innings.

    Zeuch served as the primary pitcher Friday, following opener David Phelps. His defense did him no favors; after a two-out fielding error committed by Bo Bichette, four unearned runs would cross the plate in the second inning. Zeuch settled down in the third and fourth innings before serving up two home runs in the fifth inning, ending his night.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Following opener Friday

    Zeuch will work as the bulk pitcher behind opener David Phelps against the Angels on Friday, Shi Davidi of reports.

    The 25-year-old was the expected starter for Friday's contest, but he'll instead operate as a primary pitcher. Zeuch delivered four scoreless frames in his first start of the season last Sunday, so following an opener could help him qualify for a victory.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Likely to start Friday

    Zeuch appears in line to start Friday's game against the Angels, Shi Davidi of reports.

    Zeuch is serving as a placeholder in the rotation for Robbie Ray, who was forced to begin the season on the shelf with a bruised elbow. Ray appears ready to return from the injured list after completing a 63-pitch simulated game Wednesday without issue, but because he'll receive the usual four days of rest, he's not expected to make his 2021 debut until Monday's game against the Yankees. That paves the way for Zeuch to pick up his second start Friday after he held his own against the Yankees in his first outing April 4. He covered four scoreless frames in a no-decision, working around three hits and a walk.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Tosses four scoreless frames

    Zeuch tossed four scoreless innings Sunday against the Yankees, giving up three hits and a walk while fanning one. He didn't factor into the decision.

    As expected, Zeuch didn't go deep enough to qualify for the win but limited the damage and recorded four scoreless frames. Zeuch might not last long in the rotation but got the spot start since the organization is quite shorthanded when it comes to rotation depth, and with that in mind, he might be in line to make another start at some point next week.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Gets Sunday start

    Zeuch is starting Sunday against the Yankees, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    The Jays are pretty shorthanded in the rotation at the moment, so Zeuch will get a spot start earlier in the year than most expected. The lanky right-hander can generate groundballs at a solid clip but lacks bat-missing stuff. He is also far from a lock to go deep enough in this start to qualify for the win.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Likely starting Sunday

    Zeuch will likely start Sunday's game against the Yankees, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Manager Charlie Montoyo announced Wednesday that Robbie Ray (elbow) would begin the season on the 10-day injured list, and Ross Stripling will take the mound for the Blue Jays on Saturday. As a result, Zeuch lines up as the likely starter for the series finale against the Yankees on Sunday. Zeuch made four appearances (two starts) in Grapefruit League play and posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 10 innings.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Included on Opening Day roster

    Zeuch said Monday that he was informed he would be included on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster, Scott Mitchell of reports.

    Zeuch revealed the news after he was roughed up in his final start of the spring Monday against the Phillies, giving up five runs on nine hits and a walk over three innings. The poor showing inflated his spring ERA to 5.40, but it won't necessarily take Zeuch out of the running for a temporary spot in the rotation. Zeuch tentatively lines up to start against the Yankees on Saturday or Sunday, when Toronto will first require a replacement in the rotation for Robbie Ray (elbow). Rather than asking Zeuch to start, the Blue Jays could opt for a bullpen game instead, with the right-hander likely being an option to cover multiple innings in relief.

  • Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Could fill in for Robbie Ray

    Zeuch appears on track to begin the season in the Blue Jays' Opening Day rotation, most likely starting Sunday's series finale against the Yankees in New York, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Toronto has yet to finalize its rotation beyond handing Hyun Jin Ryu the Opening Day nod Thursday, but Zeuch looks like he may be in line for at least a short-term starting role while Robbie Ray (elbow) and Nate Pearson (groin) are on the mend. Zeuch is slated to start Monday's spring finale against the Phillies, so a strong showing in that contest would likely clear the way for him to get the ball for Toronto over the weekend. Since Ray isn't expected to miss more than one or two turns through the rotation, Zeuch could move back to the bullpen or head to the Jays' alternate site by the middle of April.
