Zach Stewart Update

What’s going on with Zach Stewart? The key prospect acquired in the Scott Rolen trade is currently pitching in AAA Las Vegas. To this point he’s been used exclusively out of the bullpen. His role has been short relief and his longest outing has been one inning. I’m not going to read too much into four appearances. Here’s a screen cap of his game logs;

We’ll get to see Stewart in a Toronto uniform soon enough. He’s a shoe-in to be a September call-up (total of only 94.2 IP this seaon). And in my mind a September call-up for a pitcher on this club is a plus, as they’ll receive some good ole’ Brad Arnsberg tutelage.

Here’s a video of Stewart facing the Reds in pre-season inter-squad game. He faces Edwin Encarnacion. Watch for the nasty slider that he throws around second 22. He makes EE look like a fool.

    They would have to make room on the 40 man roster to move Stewart up. How would they do that?

  • Kick Millar to the curb, something I assume the club will do before September and the call-up period. Barrett is also a candidate to get dropped.

  • Once Stewart has Tommy John surgery and comes back a year later, he’s going to be sick!

    Eyebleaf, what are you implying?

  • Coach, I’m implying that now that Stewart is a Blue Jay, he’s cursed, and arm trouble awaits.

    But, still: In Arnsberg We Trust.
