Baseball America updated its farm system rankings post deadline and the Jays moved up to #6 from #9.

That's genuinely impressive given all the talent we've graduated this season.

Hard to imagine the Jays staying top 10 right now if you graduate out Vlad, Bo, Biggio, Jansen, SRF, even McGuire. None will be rookies in 2020. Bo & McGuire are still listed on prospect lists but not for much longer.

If after losing all those to the majors the Jays are still at top 10 then the current team running the Jays are doing a heck of a job.

Zeuch threw 6 shutout innings with 2 walks and 6 Ks tonight. He's due to be called up.
PeterG - Wednesday, August 14 2019 @ 10:12 PM EDT (#379882) #
Diaz in AA and Castillo in A both pitched 5+ shutout innings tonight as well.

Nice to see the pitching prospects having a good day. Zeuch's game was his 1st really good start in quite a while for Buffalo. I'd like to see a few more like tonight's game before he's called up. In his previous 6 starts, his ERA was almost 5.50, and his K:BB ratio was 19:18 in 36 2/3 IP. I see him as more of a 2020 possibility for the rotation.

Manoah pitched 3 innings tonight and gave up 2 runs, 1 earned, didn't walk anybody and struck out 2. After an error in the 1st inning, he gave up a HR to Spokane 1B Blaine Crimm, who was slashing .354/.410/.528/.938 heading into tonight's game.

I doubt the Jays will call up any more real prospects this year. Not enough time to evaluate them, you'd just start their FA/arbitration clocks early. Just guys already on the 40 man, non-prospects, etc.
Mike Green - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 09:02 AM EDT (#379898) #
Dan, here's what Zeuch has done in his last 4 starts:

Jul 29- 7 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 1W, 5K
Aug 3- 6 IP,  6H, 4 ER, 3W, 1K
Aug 8- 7.1 IP, 6H 4 ER, 2W, 4K
Aug 14- 6 IP, 4H, 0 ER, 2W, 6K

In the August 8 start, Zeuch had pitched brilliantly through 7, allowing 2 hits and 2 walks.  Toledo opened the 8th with a soft line drive, a pop-up and a bunt single to load the bases. Zeuch gave up a line drive single and a fly out, and was then pulled.  The reliever gave up a grand slam so he was charged with 4 ER. 

His game is the groundball, and he's continued to rack those up (he was 10-2 after 7 innings on August 8 and 7-2 yesterday).  You also have to bear in mind that triple A this year is an extreme hitter's environment.  Waguespack had an ERA of 5.30 in Buffalo, and Reid-Foley was at 6.26.  I think Zeuch is the best of the three. 

And as for service time, now is not the time to be playing service time games with Zeuch.  He's 24 years old and the club needs pitching.  He's had 30 high minors starts and succeeded at that.  Time to test the waters (when it doesn't matter) in the big leagues.

Zeuch's numbers have been legit good at age appropriate levels all the way up. His stuff grades well. His K rate isn't great but his groundball rate is elite.

Everything he has done so far tells me he has every chance to be an mlb SP.
Jonny German - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 09:19 AM EDT (#379902) #
2 other factors in favour of having Zeuch pitch in Toronto in September - he started his season 2 months late (lat strain), and he needs to go on the 40-man this winter regardless.
PeterG - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 09:58 AM EDT (#379903) #
I agree that Zeuch should be called up in September and think it likely that he is.
bpoz - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 10:08 AM EDT (#379904) #
Zeuch is adjusting fast to the AAA ball.
Shoeless Joe - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 10:25 AM EDT (#379905) #
I just don't think Zeuch will make it in the big leagues, there aren't too many pitchers who succeed without at least one big breaking pitch in todays MLB.
uglyone - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 11:30 AM EDT (#379909) #
the funny thing with Zeuch is despite the lack of Ks, he has to breakers that are usually graded pretty well and are potentially above average pitches - his curve and his slider.
scottt - Thursday, August 15 2019 @ 05:49 PM EDT (#379923) #
Usually, slider/sinker guys work in the bottom of the zone, so they don't strike out as many as guys who work all over the strike zone.

We'll see how his stuff plays when they bring him up.
