Drew Hutchison was scratched from his scheduled start against the Mariners on Friday due to illness.

It's the second straight day that he's had his start pushed back due to the flu. Marco Estrada will move up a day and will pitch for the Blue Jays on Friday, with Hutchison working on Saturday if he's feeling up to it.
Jul 24 - 6:08 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is hopeful Drew Hutchison (flu) will be able to start Friday against the Mariners.

Hutchison was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday against the A's with flu-like symptoms, but the 24-year-old right-hander is already feeling better. If he can't go Friday, Hutchison will start Saturday.
Jul 23 - 2:48 PM

Drew Hutchison has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday due to flu-like symptoms.

R.A. Dickey will jump up a day and start the Jays' series finale against the A's. Hutchison should be fine to return to the rotation either over the weekend or early next week. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 5.19 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 94/32 K/BB ratio in 104 innings this season, though he's somehow sporting a 9-2 record.

Drew Hutchison is questionable for his scheduled Thursday start due to flu-like symptoms.

If Hutchison can't go, the Jays will roll with R.A. Dickey instead. Hutchison's availability for the game should be known early Thursday.
Jul 22 - 7:27 PM

Drew Hutchison picked up his ninth win of the season on Friday, allowing just two runs on five hits across six innings against the Rays.

The young right-hander walked a pair and struck out three on the night. Astoundingly, Hutchison is now 7-1 with a 2.21 ERA in the hitter's paradise that is the Rogers Centre, while compiling an 8.81 ERA and 1.98 WHIP away from home. Fantasy owners may want to keep him on the pine on Thursday when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland.
Jul 17 - 9:45 PM

Drew Hutchison yielded four runs in five innings Wednesday versus the White Sox.

Hutchison bounced back after surrendering three runs in the first, and he hung around just long enough to qualify for the win (though the bullpen coughed up his lead). Unfortunately, five innings or so has pretty much been Hutchison's limit of late; he hasn't completed six innings in a month. Still, he's won three of his last five starts anyway, and had the bullpen held up, tonight would have made it four.
Jul 8 - 11:26 PM

Drew Hutchison's struggles away from Toronto continued in Friday's loss to the Tigers as the right-hander was hammered for seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Hutchison walked a pair and struck out four on the night. After holding the Tigers to just one run through the first three innings, the wheels fell off in the fourth inning as they broke through for five runs, including a pair that were unearned. He's now 6-1 with a 2.12 ERA at home this season and 2-1 with an absurdly bad 9.00 ERA on the road. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes when he takes on the White Sox in Chicago on Wednesday.
Jul 3 - 10:11 PM

Drew Hutchison won his eighth game Sunday, holding the Rangers to one unearned run over 5 2/3 frames in a 3-2 victory.

Hutchison issued three free passes on the day, but he yielded only four hits and recorded eight strikeouts. It's been a roller-coaster ride for the righty's fantasy owners this season, as he's been terribly inconsistent from start-to-start and holds a 4.99 ERA. However, he's managed to win eight games and has whiffed 81 over 88 1/3 innings. Hutchison takes on the Tigers on the road next weekend.
Jun 28 - 4:12 PM

Drew Hutchison wasn't dominant, allowing three runs in five innings, but was good enough to improve to 7-1 in Monday's start against the Rays.

Hutchison allowed nine hits and walked two, so he was lucky to allow only the three runs. He used six strikeouts to his advantage. The Jays' offense, as they have been wont to do, provided him with run support before he was officially taken out of the game, scoring four times in the top of the sixth. Hutchison will carry a 5.33 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 73/23 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings into a home start against the Rangers next.
Jun 22 - 10:50 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched well, tossing 5 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball as the Blue Jays defeated the Mets 8-0 on Wednesday.

Hutchison was effective but inefficient, needing 105 pitches without being able to finish the sixth inning. He scattered four hits and a walk while striking out five. Hutchison has alternated between dominating and dreadful outings for most of the season, carrying a perplexing 5.33 ERA with a 1.38 WHIP and a 67/21 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings. He'll hope for another good outing in his next start, which will come in Tampa against the Rays.
Jun 17 - 9:55 PM

Drew Hutchison was chased after giving up a career-high eight runs in just 2 1/3 innings Friday against the Red Sox.

It was his shortest outing of the season. Hutchison gave up a five-spot in the first inning, including a two-run homer to Pablo Sandoval and a solo blast to Mookie Betts. Dustin Pedroia then launched a three-run homer in the third inning, which marked the end of his night. Fortunately for him, his offense (and the Red Sox bullpen) got him off the hook. Hutchison walked three and struck out in three in the no-decision and saw his ERA jump to 5.75 for the year. Those who were hoping for a breakout this season have been disappointed.
Jun 12 - 11:21 PM

Drew Hutchison yielded one run over 6 1/3 innings in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Astros.

The only run scored on an RBI single from Jose Altuve in the third inning. Hutchison held the Astros to six hits and one walk while striking out five batters. He's now 5-1 with a 4.91 ERA on the year and has performed much better at home than on the road. He'll try to buck that trend when he faces the Red Sox next week at Fenway Park.
Jun 6 - 4:32 PM

Drew Hutchison surrendered four runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's contest with the Twins.

Hutchison struck out three without walking a batter. He pitched well enough until the sixth inning, when an RBI single by Joe Mauer and a two-run homer by Trevor Plouffe sent him to the showers. Hutchison would not earn a decision in the ultimate 6-5 loss, as the Twins scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to deprive him of the win. This season, he's pitching to a 4.83 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 54/16 K/BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings. A Saturday afternoon home start against the Astros is next on the schedule.
May 31 - 5:25 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched a four-hit shutout against the White Sox in Monday's win.

It's the second shutout of Hutchison's career. All four hits were singles and the White Sox only once had a runner reach scoring position. Hutchison also issued zero walks while fanning eight. The terrific outing knocks the right-hander's ERA to 5.12 with a 1.31 WHIP and a 51/16 K/BB ratio in 58 innings. He'll look for more of the same his next time out in Minnesota against the Twins.
