Top pitching prospect Ricky Tiedemann promoted to High A Vancouver

According to Shi Davidi, 24-year-old right-handed pitcher Yosver Zulueta and 19-year-old left handed pitcher Ricky Tiedemann are being called up to High A Vancouver.

Rumblings are that Blue Jays prospects Yosver Zulueta and Ricky Tiedemann are being promoted to high-A Vancouver from low-A Dunedin after latest dominant outings.
Zulueta K’d 10 in 4.2 innings Thursday while Tiedemann K’d 10 in 5 innings last night.

Yosver Zulueta:
Zulueta was an international free agent who signed in 2019, this is the 24-year-olds first full season. In June 2019, he underwent Tommy John surgery, missing the rest of that season as well as 2020.

The sample size is small, but he’s looked fantastic in his 12 innings pitched. He has a 3.00 ERA, but a much better FIP of 1.32. His BB/9 sits at 2.25, while his K/9 sits at an incredible 17.25. Interestingly, he had also balked four times and has hit four batters, while only walking three batters.

I don’t reckon he’ll be in Low A for long lol.
