While Zeuch didn’t see much major league action in 2019, the young Blue Jays bullpen arm showed promise with his changeup, limiting batters to a .195 wOBA and inducing an impressive 40% infield fly-ball percentage on a 50% fly-ball rate.
Zeuch had little command of his curveball during his brief big league stint. A 20% walk rate and a .526 wOBA highlight some of his struggles from last season.
Baseball Savant tabs Zeuch’s fastball as a sinker, thanks to the steep downward plane of the pitch deployed by the reliever’s impressive 6’7″ frame. A ground-ball rate over 50% is certainly a sturdy backbone to work with, but a matching 12.7% walk and strikeout rate leaves something to be desired for a pitch with below average velocity (34th percentile on Statcast) and spin rate (33rd percentile).
Zeuch’s slider proved to be a nice offering in limited action in 2019. He held batters to a minuscule .143 BAA and a .095 ISO.
