2020 Fantasy Outlook
Zeuch threw a no-hitter for Triple-A Buffalo last season before debuting in September. His run with the big club was mostly underwhelming, though he did nearly double his strikeout rate with the jump to the majors, from an ultra-low 11.6% to 20.2%. The 6-foot-7 righty's signature pitch is the sinking fastball, which helped him to groundball rates in the upper-50s/low-60s throughout his time on the farm. The league at large had been moving away from sinkerballers, but in a juiced ball year, extreme groundball pitchers became more en vogue. His slider and changeup were positive offerings by pitch values. However, when a pitcher allows as much contact as Zeuch does, a lot is left up to chance and the defense behind them, and the Blue Jays had a bottom-five defense in the American League last season. In this division, the spots where you could realistically use Zeuch will be few and far between. Read Past Outlooks

The Blue Jays included Zeuch as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
With Ryan Borucki (elbow) looking on track to be ready for when the season begins July 23 or 24 and several other depth starting options on hand in the roster pool, Zeuch isn't expected to have a path to meaningful innings with Toronto in 2020. Zeuch reached the majors in the second half of 2019 and provided a 4.76 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 22.2 innings in his five appearances (three starts), but he was quickly dismissed from the competition for a rotation spot this spring, as the Blue Jays optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo on March 10.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A first-round pick in this past June's draft, Zeuch presents an imposing figure on the mound at 6-foot-7, 225 lbs. The 21-year-old from Pittsburgh relies mostly on a fastball/slider combination, though his curveball also has the potential to be a plus pitch. He even features a changeup from time to time, though that remains a work in progress. Zeuch fanned 14 batters in his final two starts at Low-A to end the 2016 campaign, so the strikeout potential exists. Zeuch will likely return to that level and work on his secondary pitches as well as repeating his delivery, as is often the issue for tall hurlers. Still, Zeuch is supposed to have above-average control, and the polished college hurler could advance quickly with a fast start.
