Blue Jays minor leaguer T.J. Zeuch throws no-hitter

1 Comment

Toronto Blue Jays minor leaguer T.J. Zeuch tossed a no-hitter for Triple-A Buffalo last night. The feat came in a 3-0 victory over the Rochester Red Wings. He needed 114 pitches to do it while striking out three and walking one. He also hit a batter, giving him only two blemishes in the game.

The last no-hitter for Buffalo came when the club was the Indians’ Triple-A team back on June 20, 1997. The guy who did it: Bartolo Colon.

Zeuch, 24, was a first round draft pick of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2016. It came in his 11th Triple-A start. Coming into the season he was named the Blue Jays’ 17th-ranked prospect by MLB.com. The guy is 6’7″, which makes you think of Randy Johnson or someone, but he’s described as a ground ball machine who pitches to contact. I suppose a no-hitter with only three strikeouts is evidence of that. He projects as a backend starter in the bigs who, if he ups his strikeout rate, could be something truly special.
