2020 Fantasy Outlook

$Signed a one-year, $563,500 contract with the Blue Jays in March of 2020.
Available in relief Tuesday
PToronto Blue Jays  AAA
February 25, 2020
Merryweather (elbow) is listed as an available relief option for Toronto in its Grapefruit League game Tuesday against the Yankees, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While recovering from March 2018 Tommy John surgery, Merryweather was sidelined for most of the 2019 campaign, making only two rehab appearances for two of the Jays' lower-level affiliates in late June before being shut down. The right-hander returned to action in the Arizona Fall League and is apparently feeling healthy ahead of the 2020 season, as evidenced by the fact that he's available out of the bullpen Tuesday. Expect Merryweather to report to Triple-A Buffalo or Double-A New Hampshire once spring camp concludes.

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.
