Tom Hatch didn’t allow a run over 2 1/3 innings in his start against the Rays on Sunday. Hatch didn’t allow a hit and struck out three, but he did put two on via walk.
It was Hatch's MLB debut on Sunday and the 25-year-old looked good on the mound for the Jays. Hatch is likely operating as a spot starter right now and does not have any fantasy value.
Tom Hatch will start Sunday's series finale at Tampa Bay, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Hatch will be making his major league debut after the Jays acquired him from the Cubs last July. The 25-year-old had a 4.12 ERA in 27 starts at Double-A last season and isn't a fantasy consideration at this point.
Tom Hatch is included on the Blue Jays' season-opening 30-man roster and is expected to start the year in the bullpen according to the Blue Jays website.
Hatch was dealt to the Blue Jays in 2019 in a trade with the Cubs. Over 135 1/3 innings at the Double-A level last season, the 25-year-old posted a 4.12 ERA with a 127:39 K:BB. The Jays could deploy Hatch in multi-inning relief stints if they intend to continue developing him as a long-term starter but for now, does not have fantasy value.
