Drew Hutchison was roughed up for six runs on 10 hits and two walks over 4 2/3 frames versus the Red Sox on Thursday.
Seven of the 10 hits were singles, but that's not really comforting. Hutchison looked good in his first three starts this spring but has now been pummeled for six runs each of the last two times out, allowing a whopping 23 baserunners along the way. He'll have to shape up in a hurry if he wants a spot in the Pirates' rotation. Mar 23 - 6:28 PM

Drew Hutchison was lit up for six runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Orioles on Friday.

That's a definite setback to Hutchison's chances of securing a rotation spot. Hutchison had allowed two runs in nine innings this spring, but he gave up runs in three of his four innings of work today. Steven Brault could be back in the lead for the fifth spot now.
Mar 17 - 4:54 PM

Drew Hutchison held the Rays to one run in four innings and struck out five Friday in the Pirates' 3-1 victory.

Hutchison must feel like he's still in the AL East; he's faced the Orioles twice and now Tampa Bay in his three spring outings. He's done well, though, allowing just one run and striking out nine in seven innings. He entered camp as something of an underdog to be the Pirates' fifth starter, but he might be moving into the driver's seat now. He's a definite NL-only sleeper.
Mar 10 - 4:38 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched three scoreless innings and struck out four Friday against the Orioles.

Hutchison didn't face the best of competition while working the sixth-through-eighth innings in this one, but he couldn't have hurt his chances in the battle to become the Pirates' fifth starter. He's still a bit of an underdog for the role, but he's an NL-only sleeper.
Mar 3 - 5:08 PM

Pirates and RHP Drew Hutchison avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

It's just a tick higher than the $2.2 million he received last year. Hutchison was traded to the Pirates mid-season from Toronto in the Francisco Liriano deal. He spent most of the year in the minors, but saw action in nine major-league games, putting up a 5.25 ERA in 24 innings. The 26-year-old has yet to experience much success in the majors, but his minor league track record suggests some potential for a breakout. Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage has helped several less-talented pitchers revitalize their careers in recent seasons.

Drew Hutchison struggled in a no-decision against the Reds on Saturday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his four frames.

Hutchison struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the contest. He kept the Reds offense at bay through the first three innings until they broke free for four runs in the fourth. It's unclear if this was just a spot start, or if he'll get another opportunity in the rotation on Thursday against the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Drew Hutchison will start for the Pirates on Saturday against the Reds.

The club has opted to skip Chad Kuhl's next start, which will give Hutchison his first shot at showing what he can do in the Pirates rotation. Acquired in the deal that sent Francisco Liriano to the Blue Jays, Hutchison posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 28/15 K/BB ratio over 36 innings at Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates recalled RHP Drew Hutchison from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hutchison was recently acquired from the Blue Jays in the Francisco Liriano deal. He didn't pitch all that great in Triple-A, but it will be interesting to see if he gets a couple of starts this month.

Pirates acquired RHP Drew Hutchison from the Blue Jays for LHP Francisco Liriano, OF Harold Ramirez, and C Reese McGuire.

If this looks like a lot to give up for Hutchison, just keep in mind that the Blue Jays are covering Liriano's remaining salary. The plan calls for Hutchison to report to Triple-A for now, but he should surface in the Pirates' starting rotation relatively soon. The 25-year-old has made just three appearances (two starts) in the majors this season and owns a 3.26 ERA and 110/35 K/BB ratio over 102 innings in Triple-A.

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

Hutchison was solid in a spot start Friday, but he's not going to be needed with Marco Estrada (back) expected back shortly after the All-Star break. The righty returns to a 2.78 ERA at Buffalo.

Drew Hutchison allowed three runs over six innings, striking out seven, in a no-decision against the Tigers on Thursday.

Taking a turn in place of the injured Marco Estrada, Hutchison gave up a pair of homers but acquitted himself quite well overall. The start was just his second of the year, with his first coming on April 24. It's unclear what plans the Jays have for the right-hander in the season's second half.

Drew Hutchison will start Thursday's game against the Tigers.

This was expected. Hutchison will start in place of Marco Estrada, who is currently dealing with a back injury. Prior to his call-up at the beginning of July, he held a 2.78 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 97/31 K/BB ratio covering 87 1/3 innings with Triple-A Buffalo.

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

The Blue Jays went through every reliever in their bullpen on Friday, plus a pair of middle infielders, so they are in desperate need of fresh arms. The 25-year-old hurler owns a 2.78 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 97/31 K/BB ratio across 87 1/3 innings at Triple-A this season.

Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Friday that the club could consider calling up Drew Hutchison to be used in a relief role.

The Jays have had all kinds of trouble bridging the gap from their starters to closer Roberto Osuna, so potentially considering Hutchison as a relief option makes sense. Nearly all of his appearances as a pro have come as a starter, but he could potentially be a weapon in relief. "He’s one of our best pitchers," Atkins said of Hutchison. "If we get to a point where our starting pitching isn’t in need of him any longer, and we feel like we can get into the post-season without him as a starting pitcher, then he will absolutely be a part of the solution."

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

He had to clear optional waivers before being sent down. Hutchison made a spot start Sunday against Oakland, scattering four hits and two runs over 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander will be traveling between Buffalo and Toronto often this season.
