Toronto Blue Jays prospect T.J. Zeuch is not happy with MiLB’s pace-of-play changes and voiced his frustration on Twitter Wednesday night.
The changes, announced by the minor-league baseball governing body Wednesday morning, include a rule that all extra innings will start with a runner on second base. In addition, pitch clocks in double-A and triple-A have been reduced from 20 seconds to 15 seconds.
MiLB also followed in the path that Major League Baseball forged this season by including a limit on mound visits.
Zeuch, 22, spent most of 2017 in single-A with the Dunedin Blue Jays. The 2016 first-round pick excelled in the Arizona Fall League last year and could see time in double-A at some point this season.
