Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Handed second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (1-2) took the loss after surrendering three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four over five innings Friday against Tampa Bay.

Zeuch gave up two runs in the third inning followed by one in the fourth, and he'd depart with a 3-0 deficit. He was lifted after firing 54 of 91 pitches for strikes. Zeuch has seen limited action in the big leagues this season, posting a 4.76 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 20 punchouts over 22.2 innings.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Strikes out six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (1-1) allowed two runs on four hits with no walks and six strikeouts across four innings in a 7-2 loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

Zeuch was making his second start this season, and he shut out the Yankees over the first three innings. However, the 24-year-old allowed two runs in the fourth inning on doubles by Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton and a single by Mike Ford and was removed after 70 pitches. Zeuch has a 4.58 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 17.2 innings this season. He's scheduled to make his next appearance as a starter against the Rays at home on Friday.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Captures win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (4-4) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits with three walks and five strikeouts across 5.1 innings while earning a victory in relief against the Yankees on Sunday.

The 24-year-old was solid after Wilmer Font started the game as an opener. Zeuch shortened the game for the Blue Jays bullpen, pitching into the seventh, and he's allowed just two runs in his last 10 innings across four appearances. Zeuch has four wins with a 4.21 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 86 strikeouts in 77 innings this season. He's scheduled to make his next appearance as a starter against the Yankees again, this time in New York, on Saturday.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Yields three runs in 4.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and one strikeout across 4.1 innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

The Blue Jays took the lead in the bottom of that frame, so if he had lasted through the fifth, Zeuch could have been in line for the win. Instead, he turned in another average outing for his second career major-league appearance. Zeuch has made one start and one relief appearance, posting a 5.40 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and five strikeouts in 8.1 innings. He is scheduled to make another start at home against the Yankees on Sunday.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Slated for traditional start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch will make his second appearance for the Blue Jays on Tuesday against the Red Sox as a starter rather than a bulk reliever, Toronto radio play-by-play broadcaster Ben Wagner reports.

Wilmer Font worked the first inning of Zeuch's MLB debut Sept. 3 in Atlanta before the rookie took over and limited the Braves to two runs on three hits and two walks in four frames while striking out four. Zeuch was lifted after 73 pitches in the outing, but he should have that count bumped up slightly while he receives his first proper big-league start. Despite Zeuch's promising showing versus the Braves, fantasy managers may want to tread carefully with him while he takes on a Red Sox offense that ranks fifth in the majors versus righties this season with a 113 wRC+.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Solid in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Atlanta, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over four innings of relief while striking out four.

Making his major-league debut in the second inning as the primary pitcher behind opener Wilmer Font, Zeuch kept Atlanta's offense off the board for three frames before finally stumbling. The strikeouts were surprising for a pitcher who managed a 4.5 K/9 for Triple-A Buffalo prior to his promotion, but his five groundball outs (versus three flyouts) were about what you'd expect from the sinkerballer. Zeuch will spend the rest of September trying to solidify a spot in the Jays' 2020 rotation plans.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Contract selected ahead of debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Tuesday ahead of his assignment as the bulk reliever against the Braves.

Zeuch recorded a 3.69 ERA in 78 innings for Triple-A Buffalo this season, succeeding in spite of a very low 11.6 percent strikeout rate. He's relied on a high groundball rate throughout his professional career, never letting that number dip below 55 percent at any of his minor-league stops. He's set to follow opener Wilmer Font on Tuesday.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Set for big-league debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch will be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, when he is scheduled to serve as the bulk reliever against the Braves, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

Zeuch is set to make his big-league debut Tuesday after compiling a 3.69 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 39:32 K:BB across 78 innings with Buffalo. He's impressed across his past four starts for the Bisons, tossing a no-hitter and notching a 1.08 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 13:5 K:BB in 25 innings. The right-hander will follow opener Wilmer Font on Tuesday.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Throws no-hitter for Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch threw a no-hitter for Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, allowing one walk while striking out three over nine scoreless innings against Rochester.

The 24-year-old followed up six scoreless frames Aug. 14 with the first Buffalo Bisons no-hitter since 1997 (when Bartolo Colon accomplished the feat). He only has a 12.0 percent strikeout rate at Triple-A this season, but the 6-foot-7 Zeuch has a 57.5 percent groundball rate, and that has helped him navigate the enhanced offensive environment at that level (0.53 HR/9). A first-round pick in 2016, Zeuch is not on the 40-man roster, but the Blue Jays will need to add him this year (either in September or November) for Rule 5 draft protection.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Back with Triple-A club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (lat) was reinstated to the Triple-A Buffalo roster Saturday and started in the affiliate's 3-0 win over Norfolk. He tossed 5.2 scoreless frames, striking out four while working around two hits and a walk.

Sidelined since spring training with a right lat strain, Zeuch was cleared to resume a rehab assignment earlier this month. After two outings with High-A Dunedin, Zeuch was cleared to make his International League debut and didn't disappoint in the 93-pitch masterpiece. Given the lack of rotation depth at the big-league level, Zeuch could make a case for a promotion to the Blue Jays before 2019 is out if he continues to thrive in his subsequent starts.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Won't pitch again this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (lat) will be shut down from pitching again during spring training, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander has been dealing with a lat strain for a week, and it seems like the issue hasn't gotten better. Instead of rushing Zeuch back, the Blue Jays will instead take the cautious approach and wait until he's completely past this issue before returning to pitch again. Once he's fully healthy, Zeuch will likely spend 2019 at Double-A and/or Triple-A. However, his availability for Opening Day seems unlikely at best given this development.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Sidelined with lat injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch is dealing with a mild lat strain, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

It's unclear how the injury cropped up, and the team is still looking into the severity of the issue. If he's able to begin the season in full health, Zeuch figures to spend much of 2019 in the upper levels of the minors after posting a 3.17 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP in 27 starts between High-A Dunedin and Double-A New Hampshire last season.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Heading to Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch will pitch in the Arizona Fall League, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

A pair of DL stints hampered Zeuch's 2017 campaign, so the Jays will send him to Arizona for extra work. In 11 games (10 starts) for High-A Dunedin this year, Zeuch is 3-4 with a 3.62 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. Expectations remain high for the 21-year-old right-hander, and his development is worthy eyeing this fall.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Heads back to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch landed back on the DL at High-A Dunedin after making just one start since his last stint, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Once again, Zeuch heads to the sideline without a specific injury diagnosis. Unfortunately for him, the right-hander seems destined to fall short of making real progress in 2017 due to missed time. Zeuch's managed just 11 games this year, posting a 3.62 ERA over 54.2 innings.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Returns to High-A Dunedin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (undisclosed) was activated from the disabled list and returned to High-A Dunedin on Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

The big right-hander owned a 3.63 ERA with 44 strikeouts over 57 innings with Dunedin before hitting the shelf in early June. Zeuch may not put up overwhelming strikeout numbers, but his command is above average, and the 22-year-old owns a strong groundball rate. Zeuch will look to finish strong in hopes of making the jump to Double-A next season.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Lands on MiLB disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch was placed on the 7-day DL with an undisclosed injury Monday at High-A Dunedin, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

The Jays' first-round pick in 2016 had a 3.23 ERA with a ridiculous 61.1 percent ground ball rate over 53 innings before hitting the shelf. Zeuch's 7.1 K/9 is sound, but his potential far exceeds that mark. If an injury diagnosis doesn't surface, his DL label may just be a way to manage the 21-year-old's innings.

Blue Jays' T.J. Zeuch: Proving worthy of first-round pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeuch (3-2) owns a 3.45 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through nine games (eight starts) and 47 innings with High-A Dunedin.

One of the Jays' top pitching prospects, he's represented himself well in his first season at High-A. Zeuch was beat up pretty bad in his last start (eight runs over five innings), but has otherwise been impressive. Last year's first-round pick has an underwhelming 7.1 K/9, but Zeuch's 2.11 BB/9 shows quality control for a 21-year-old. It wouldn't be a surprise to see the right-hander make his way to Double-A before the season is over.
