Earns spot in 60-man pool
PToronto Blue Jays
June 30, 2020
The Blue Jays included Merryweather as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Toronto's initial 58-player list includes several other pitchers with MLB starting experience, so Merryweather -- who has yet to make his big-league debut -- will mainly function as an emergency depth option in the rotation. The 28-year-old has missed most of the past two seasons while recovering from March 2018 Tommy John surgery.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
We are taught to ignore 26-year-old prospects, and that is typically wise. But inevitably that will lead to missing on guys like Mike Clevinger and Zack Godley. Merryweather has a chance to fall into that same bucket of late-blooming mid-rotation starters. The athletic 6-foot-4 righty operates with a deceptive delivery, hiding the ball well until it is released. This allows his low-90s fastball to play up slightly. Merryweather has two average pitches in his curveball and changeup, but both secondaries can flash plus. He dominated at Double-A, which should be expected given his age and stuff. But while he posted a 3.89 xFIP over 16 starts at Triple-A, he was hit pretty hard (.327 AVG, 1.5 HR/9). Some of that can be attributed to bad luck. He had the second worst BABIP (.388) and fifth worst HR/FB (15.7) in the International League. The Indians have enviable rotation depth, so Merryweather may not get a lengthy look in the big-league rotation in 2018, but if the injury bug bites, he will be ready.
