Drew Hutchison pitched well but lost on Wednesday versus the Angels, yielding four runs over 6 2/3 innings.
Hutchison walked in a run in the fourth inning and served up a solo home run to Mike Trout, accounting for the only damage through six innings. In the seventh, though, Hutchison allowed an infield single, uncorked a wild pitch, and issued a walk to Trout before he was replaced by Steve Delabar, who allowed both inherited runners to score. Overall, Hutchison surrendered six hits while walking two and striking out five. The right-hander has pitched better than his 6.06 ERA indicates, as he also carries a 1.47 WHIP and a 43/16 K/BB ratio in 49 innings. He'll look for better results in a home start versus the White Sox next. May 20 - 9:56 PM

Date:

Drew Hutchison pitched six innings of two-run ball and struck out nine against the Astros on Thursday.

Hutchison exited with a two-run lead, which was promptly given away in the seventh. Still, it was one of Hutchison's better outings to date. The strikeouts were a season high, and he went without allowing a homer. His ERA is still all of the way up to 6.17, but he'll keep improving.
May 14 - 11:08 PM

Drew Hutchison racked up six strikeouts over five-plus innings of one-run ball against the Red Sox on Saturday to earn his third victory of the season.

Hutchison scattered seven hits and a walk on the afternoon. The only run charged to him came around to score after he had departed in the sixth inning. Now 3-0 on the season, he'll look to further improve upon his 6.69 ERA and 1.60 WHIP when he squares off against the Astros in Houston on Thursday.
May 9 - 4:24 PM

Drew Hutchison got a no-decision after giving up six runs in 4 1/3 innings of work on Sunday in a 10-7 loss to the Indians.

The Jays staked Hutchison to a 6-1 lead after the top of the fourth inning, but the right-hander gave a run back in the bottom-half, then contributed to a six-run fifth. He gave up eight hits in total along with a walk and two strikeouts. There's been a lot more bad than good for Hutchison thus far, as his ERA is now 7.47 with a 1.60 WHIP and a 23/12 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. He'll try to turn things around in a weekend start at home against the Red Sox.
May 3 - 4:41 PM

Drew Hutchison was hit around in a no-decision versus the Red Sox on Tuesday, yielding six runs over four innings.

The Red Sox rallied for four runs in the second inning and tacked on an additional run in both the third and fourth innings. Hutchison, when he was around the strike zone, was hittable, as the Red Sox racked up six hits and drew five walks. He recorded no strikeouts. The right-hander has an unsightly 6.67 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP and a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 27 innings. Hutchison will look for improved results in Cleveland against the Indians in his next start.
Apr 28 - 10:43 PM

Drew Hutchison allowed two runs and four hits over eight innings in defeating the Orioles on Thursday.

Hutchison pitched hitless ball through five innings, and he struck out seven on the night. Hopefully this means his early-season woes are over. He's still a decent enough bet as a fifth or sixth starter in mixed leagues.
Apr 23 - 10:29 PM

Drew Hutchison's early-season struggles continued in Friday's no-decision against the Braves as he surrendered five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.

On the plus side, he did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night while walking three. The Jays staked him to an early 4-1 lead but Hutchison couldn't get through the fifth inning, with a two-out two-run triple from Andrelton Simmons chasing him from the contest. Through three starts, he owns an uninspiring 7.20 ERA and 1.53 WHIP despite his 14/6 K/BB ratio across 15 innings. He'll look to get back on track on Thursday against the Orioles.
Apr 17 - 10:23 PM

Drew Hutchison struggled in Sunday's start versus the Orioles, yielding seven runs in 4 1/3 innings.

It was a slugfest, as opposing pitcher Chris Tillman also served up two home runs. The two Hutchison allowed: a two-run homer to Adam Jones in the first inning, and a three-run home run to Travis Snider in the fifth. Overall, Hutchison allowed seven hits, walked one, and struck out five. Hutchison matches up against the Braves at home in his next start.
Apr 12 - 5:20 PM

Drew Hutchison spun six innings of one-run ball in the Blue Jays' 6-1 Opening Day win over the Yankees.

The only real blemish of the afternoon for Hutchison was Brett Gardner's sixth-inning solo home run. Hutchison allowed only two other hits -- both singles -- and he struck out three. The young right-hander finished the 2014 season with a 4.48 ERA, but his 1.26 WHIP and 9.0 K/9 from last year are much more indicative of his high-level ability. He'll get the Orioles on the road in his second start of 2015.
Apr 6 - 4:35 PM

The Blue Jays have named Drew Hutchison their Opening Day starter.

R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle have a big experience edge on Hutchison, but the young right-hander is the easy choice here. Hutchison posted a 4.48 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 184/60 K/BB ratio for the Jays last season and could take another step forward in 2015.
Mar 31 - 8:01 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched five strong innings, allowing just one run, Friday versus the Tigers.

Hutchison struck out six and walked one. He's been strong all spring, going 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA. He rates as at least a fringe mixed-league starter this year, even though he's not in a great situation for pitchers in Toronto.
Mar 27 - 4:09 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched four scoreless innings Wednesday in the Blue Jays' 5-2 win over the Orioles.

The Jays already needed Hutchison to build on last year's modest success in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery, but now it's even more important with Marcus Stroman down. He should prove to be a solid No. 3 starter, but his fantasy upside is limited by pitching in Toronto and the AL East. He might be a fringe mixed-league guy anyway.
Mar 11 - 4:01 PM

Drew Hutchison won his 11th game of the season, allowing two runs in five innings on Friday against the Orioles.

Hutchison ends his up-and-down season with a positive. The right-hander gave up five hits, walked one, and struck out eight Oriole batters. He finishes 2014 with an 11-13 record, a 4.48 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 184/60 K/BB ratio. Hutchison's peripheral numbers suggest he may be a bit better than his ERA currently indicates, which, if accurate, gives him additional fantasy value in 2015.
Fri, Sep 26, 2014 10:25:00 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched well through six innings, but tired in the seventh, resulting in a loss as he allowed six runs over 6 1/3 innings against the Orioles on Tuesday.

Hutchison made a mistake to Steve Pearce in the first inning, a three-run home run, and settled down from there. But the bases were loaded with one out in the seventh on a single, Hutchison's own throwing error, and a hit batsman, and all three came around to score on Alejandro De Aza's triple. Overall, he yielded five hits, walked two, and struck out 11, giving him back-to-back double-digit strikeout starts. Hutchison will take his 4.51 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 170/56 K/BB ratio into a road start against the Yankees on Sunday.
Tue, Sep 16, 2014 10:32:00 PM

Drew Hutchison fanned 10 batters, allowing one run over 6 1/3 innings, as the Blue Jays polished off a series sweep with another rout of the Cubs on Wednesday.

The Jays outscored the Cubs 28-3 in the series. The 11 runs they scored on Wednesday was more than enough for Hutchison, who gave up only four hits (a Jorge Soler solo home run) and a walk along with the double-digit punch-outs. Hutchison has been maddeningly inconsistent, sporting a 4.36 ERA despite a 159/54 K/BB ratio. He'll try to repeat the success in a road start against the Orioles on Tuesday.
