Last year, Pitt ace T.J. Zeuch was selected in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft, going to the Toronto Blue Jays. Zeuch signed quickly and spent the rest of that year in rookie ball and at the Class A level.

In 2017, Zeuch still finds himself in Class A, but in the advanced league with Dunedin. And the move up the ranks hasn't slowed him down much statistically.

So far this year, he is 3-3 with a 3.23 ERA through nine starts. Zeuch has given up only two home runs in 53 innings of work and has 42 strikeouts. His K/inning ratio has dropped slightly but his ERA is more than a full run lower than it was last year in the same amount of starts.

Zeuch still has quite a while to get to the big leagues but so far, he seems to be progressing well.
