The Blue Jays will option Drew Hutchison to Triple-A Buffalo after Monday's game.

Hutchison allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a spot-start against the Athletics. Because he has three-plus years of service time, the Blue Jays had to wait for him to clear optional waivers before sending him back down to the minors.
Apr 25 - 4:58 PM

Drew Hutchison was decent in a spot start Sunday, limiting the Athletics to two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a 6-3 victory.

The right-hander yielded just four hits on the day, although two of them left the yard. He walked three batters but recorded five strikeouts. Hutchison was making a spot start as the Jays looked to give their rotation some extra rest. He's headed back to Triple-A Buffalo.
Apr 24 - 4:11 PM

Blue Jays recalled RHP Drew Hutchison from Triple-A Buffalo.

The Blue Jays demoted Chad Girodo to make room for him. Hutchison will draw the start Sunday against Oakland. It's only a spot start so Hutchison could be headed back to the minors after Sunday.
Apr 23 - 4:33 PM

Drew Hutchison will start on Sunday against the Athletics.

It appears to just be a spot start in order to give the other members of the Blue Jays' rotation some extra rest. Hutchison holds a 4.11 ERA and 20/6 K/BB ratio over his first 15 1/3 innings at Triple-A Buffalo.
Apr 22 - 4:42 PM

Blue Jays optioned RHP Drew Hutchison to Triple-A Buffalo.

Harsh for a guy who got plunked by a teammate's throw on Sunday, but it's that time of spring. Hutchison was never really in the running for an Opening Day roster spot, though he should surface in the majors at some point this season as emergency starter. The right-hander posted a 5.57 ERA in 150 1/3 innings last year for Toronto.
Mar 28 - 9:22 AM

Drew Hutchison said that he'll be fine after being hit in the back of the head with a ball on Sunday.

Catcher A.J. Jimenez plunked Hutchison with a throw to second base as the pitcher was crouched on the mound. "That’s what you get for being dumb and walking the leadoff guy," Hutchison said.
Mar 27 - 3:42 PM

Drew Hutchison left Sunday's appearance after being hit in the back of the head by a throw from catcher A.J. Jimenez.

Hutchison stood up and appeared to be OK, but the Blue Jays decided to pull him after a discussion on the mound. The club should provide an update on the right-hander's status later Sunday.
Mar 27 - 2:29 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched four innings and allowed just one run Tuesday in a win over the Tigers.

Hutchison has been effective this spring, but it's working against him that he has an option year remaining and Aaron Sanchez has impressed in his quest for a rotation spot. Most likely, Hutchison is going to be sent to Triple-A at the end of the spring.
Mar 22 - 5:10 PM

Drew Hutchison allowed one run and one hit over two innigns Saturday against the Phillies.

The Jays made it very clear with their offseason moves that they're not counting on Hutchison this year. It doesn't mean that he can't contribute, but he'd seem to be behind both Jesse Chavez and Aaron Sanchez in line for a spot in the rotation.
Mar 5 - 5:15 PM

Blue Jays and RHP Drew Hutchison avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.2 million contract.

It's a bit under the $2.6 million he was projected by to earn in his first year of arbitration eligibility. Hutchison held a disappointing 5.57 ERA in 2015.
Jan 15 - 5:46 PM

Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro acknowledged Wednesday that Drew Hutchison is drawing trade interest but then said the team expects to keep him.

Shapiro doesn't want to sell low on the 25-year-old right-hander, who had an unsightly 5.57 ERA in 150 1/3 innings with the Blue Jays in 2015. Hutchison makes for a decent bounceback candidate in 2016 -- talent has never been the issue -- and he is under contractual control with Toronto through 2018. He's projected to make around $2.5 million next year.

Drew Hutchison will start for the Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon against the Orioles.

Hutchison was moved into a bullpen role in mid-September, but he'll get one final turn as a starter before the regular season comes to a close. The 25-year-old right-hander is ticketed for long relief in the playoffs.

Drew Hutchison has been removed from the Blue Jays' rotation and will pitch in relief down the stretch.

Hutchison had more road troubles last Wednesday, yielding six runs in 3 1/3 innings at Fenway Park. The young right-hander has been very good at home for the Blue Jays and he's sitting on a 13-4 record, but his 5.33 season ERA is more indicative of how he has pitched overall.

Drew Hutchison was lit up for six runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

After six straight home starts, Hutchison finally pitched on the road again tonight, and it went about well as his previous ones did. He's 11-2 with a 2.91 ERA in 15 starts in Toronto and 2-2 with a 9.44 ERA in 12 starts elsewhere. He's given up eight homers in 92 2/3 innings at home and 12 in 54 1/3 innings on the road. The Blue Jays likely will try to keep him starting in Toronto as much as possible the rest of the way.
