The Cardinals have acquired relief pitcher T.J. Zeuch from the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations. He's been optioned to Triple-A Memphis.
Zeuch, who was designated for assignment last Tuesday, ranked as the 25th prospect in the Blue Jays' system, per MLB Pipeline. He posted a 1.59 ERA in 2020 but is 0-2 with a 6.60 ERA so far this season.
T.J. 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 was called up from the minors ahead of Thursday's start. The 25-year-old had a 4.37 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across seven appearances (six starts) at Triple-A Buffalo. Zeuch is projected to get another start next week at Miami.
T.J. Zeuch allowed four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings during Wednesday's 5-4 win against the Yankees. He did not factor into the decison.
Ross Stripling was originally scheduled to start Wednesday’s game but was scratched with forearm tightness. Zeuch limited the Yankees to four runs on four hits in an emergency spot start. The 25-year-old could be line for another start early next week against the Red Sox. Zeuch owns a 5.56 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and five strikeouts across 11 1/3 innings in 2021.
T.J. Zeuch was hammered for seven runs (three earned) on six hits with three walks and two hits over 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Angels on Friday.
Zeuch worked as the bulk pitcher behind opener David Phelps against the Angels on Friday and did not have a good performance. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates to see if Zeuch will get a start next week.
T.J. Zeuch pitched four scoreless innings Sunday against the Yankees, giving up three hits and a walk while striking out one batter. He didn't factor into the decision.
Zeuch landed a spot in the Jay's rotation when Robbie Ray ended up on the injured list. The 25-year-old righty be in line to make another start at some point next week but is only worth picking up in deeper fantasy leagues.
