Drew Hutchison allowed three runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the A's on Sunday.
Hutchison walked two and struck out four in the outing. He continues to confound, seemingly rotating stellar starts with less-than-great ones. They've all added up to a 6-7 record, 3.86 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through 18 starts. If the pattern holds, he should have a good shot at a win at the Rays on Saturday. Jul 6 - 9:55 PM

Drew Hutchison tossed seven innings of one-run ball in a dominant start Tuesday against the Brewers.

Hutchison struck out 10 batters and held the red-hot Brewers offense to just three hits over his seven impressive frames. It was a nice bounceback showing from the 23-year-old right-hander, who got knocked around in his previous two starts. Hutchison owns a solid 3.81 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 89/31 K/BB ratio in 99 1/3 total innings this season. He will face the A's in Oakland next.
Jul 1 - 4:21 PM

Drew Hutchison fell to 5-6, allowing four runs over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

Hutchison had a rough third inning, but otherwise held the Yankees at bay. In the third, Hutchison yielded all four runs on a walk, an RBI double, an RBI single, and a two-run home run. Overall, the right-hander allowed seven hits, walked two, and struck out six. Hutchison will take a 4.00 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a 79/29 K/BB ratio into his next start against the Brewers at home.
Jun 25 - 10:29 PM

Drew Hutchison fell to 5-5, allowing four runs over 4 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Hutchison has been Jekyll and Hyde over his last seven starts, ranging from dominant (three starts of at least seven shutout innings) to awful (five earned runs in two starts). On Thursday, the right-hander allowed six hits, walked four, and struck out three, bringing his ERA up to 3.86. He'll take on the Yankees again in his next start, but will have the benefit of home field advantage.
Jun 19 - 11:08 PM

Drew Hutchison fired seven scoreless innings in Friday's 4-0 win over the Orioles.

He didn't return after a rain delay. Hutchison scattered six hits while walking none and striking out three. It was nice to see after he was knocked around for five runs over three innings last time out. The 23-year-old has battled inconsistency, but he owns a solid 3.62 ERA and 70/23 K/BB ratio in 82 innings over 14 starts this season. He deserves to be owned in more fantasy leagues at this point.
Jun 13 - 10:32 PM

Drew Hutchison had a rough showing Sunday versus the Cardinals, getting pulled after allowing five runs over just three innings of work.

He permitted hit hits, walked one and struck out one. It was an ugly day from the get-go for Hutchison, as even many of the outs he managed to record were hard hit. The young right-hander now holds a 2.03 ERA in eight road starts and an 8.86 ERA in five home starts this season. He'll be on the road next weekend at Camden Yards.
Jun 8 - 4:30 PM

Drew Hutchison got the no-decision, shutting out the Tigers over seven innings in Tuesday's 5-3 win.

Hutchison and Anibal Sanchez battled fiercely in a scoreless pitcher's duel, unfortunately resulting in no-decisions for both. Hutchison held the Tigers to three hits without issuing a walk and striking out seven. The right-hander has been a welcome addition to the Jays' rotation, now sporting a 3.50 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a 66/22 K/BB ratio in 72 innings. He'll face the Cardinals at home in his next start.
Jun 3 - 10:22 PM

Drew Hutchison gave up three homers and five runs in five innings Monday in a win over the Rays.

Hutchison entered the night with 59 strikeouts and five homers allowed in 60 innings. Now he has 59 strikeouts and eight homers allowed in 65 innings, which isn't quite so impressive. Hopefully, this was nothing more than an off night: his ability to induce grounders as well as swings and misses has made him one of the AL's biggest surprises. Expect better against the Royals next time out.
May 26 - 11:41 PM

Drew Hutchison evened his record at 3-3 by holding the Red Sox to one run in 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday.

Hutchison tossed a shutout last time out. That wasn't going to happen tonight against a patient Red Sox lineup, but he was effective nonetheless. He allowed six hits, walked two and struck out four in the 102-pitch outing. It wasn't Hutchison at his best, but it was good enough against a floundering team.
May 21 - 10:51 PM

Drew Hutchison tossed a complete game shutout as the Blue Jays defeated the Rangers on Friday.

The right-hander outdueled superstar Yu Darvish, holding the Rangers to three hits and a walk while striking out six in his first career complete game. Hutchison has had some hiccups but has done a good job for the Blue Jays overall, owning a 3.64 ERA with a 55/16 K/BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings. He will face the Red Sox on the road next week.
May 16 - 10:39 PM

Drew Hutchison surrendered five runs in eight innings and took the no-decision as the Blue Jays defeated the Phillies in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Hutchison was rolling along until the Phillies posted a five-spot in the sixth inning against the right-hander, thanks largely to Cody Asche's game-tying grand slam. Overall, Hutchison allowed nine hits, walked one, and struck out six. Hutchison's defense-independent numbers are impressive, as he currently owns a 44/11 K/BB ratio in 41 innings, so it stands to reason that he could further improve on his 4.17 ERA. If the Jays' rotation stays on schedule, Hutchison will face the Angels at home next.
May 6 - 10:34 PM

Drew Hutchison gave up four runs in seven innings to take a loss to the Royals on Wednesday.

Hutchison was one out away from a very nice outing, but Alcides Escobar doubled in two runs with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. It gave the Royals a 4-2 lead and resulted in Hutchison taking his second loss in six starts. He's still been very solid this season; better than his 3.82 ERA are his 38/10 K/BB ratio and three homers allowed in 33 innings.
Apr 30 - 11:51 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched well in Thursday's start against the Orioles, but earned the no-decision despite allowing only two runs over six innings.

Hutchison exited the game in line for the win, but the Jays' bullpen surrendered nine runs total in the seventh and eighth innings, leaving the right-hander with the no-decision. Hutchison allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out nine. He's looked sharp in his last two starts, having struck out 18 and walked one in 11 1/3 innings. Hutchison will face the meager Royals offense in his next outing.
Apr 24 - 10:10 PM

Drew Hutchison allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Indians.

Hutchison held the Indians scoreless over the first five innings, but he was chased after giving up a go-ahead two-run home run to Carlos Santana in the sixth inning. He equaled a career-high with nine strikeouts and walked none in the no-decision. With a 3.60 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 20 innings, Hutchison is worth monitoring in deeper mixed leagues, but he's a risky play next week against the Orioles at home.
Apr 18 - 11:22 PM

Drew Hutchison fired six shutout innings in a no-decision Saturday night against the Orioles.

It was a nice turnaround outing for Hutchison, who was lit up for six runs over just 3 1/3 innings last Sunday by the Yankees. Ups and downs should be expected throughout the season for the talented 23-year-old righty. He'll face the Indians in Cleveland next.
