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. Sep 16 - 10:32 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.
Sep 10 - 10:45 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched six innings of three-run ball against the Red Sox on Friday.

Hutchison did not factor in the decision. He gave up six hits and three runs over his six innings of work, striking out six and walking two. Hutchison has been a serviceable, if unspectacular, starter for the Blue Jays this season. He holds a 4.46 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and a 143/51 K/BB ratio in 157 innings this season. He'll put those numbers on the line against the Cubs in his next start.
Sep 5 - 11:43 PM

Drew Hutchison allowed just one hit over seven scoreless innings in a win over the Yankees on Saturday.

The one hit was a double by Mark Teixeira in the fourth inning. Otherwise, Hutchison dominated by striking out nine and walking two while throwing 64 out of 103 pitches for strikes. He also hit two batters. Amazingly, this is the first time all season that he has back-to-back quality starts. He'll try to keep it going next week when he brings a 4.47 ERA into a start against the Red Sox.
Aug 30 - 3:50 PM

Drew Hutchison held the Rays to one run in six innings Sunday but the Blue Jays lost in extras.

Hutchison pitched well, yielding only six hits and two walks over his six solid frames while striking out seven Tampa Bay hitters. The only run he gave up was on a fielder's choice by Evan Longoria in the top of the first inning. Hutchison has struggled in the second half of the season, but he can look to build off this good outing next time out against the Yankees.
Aug 24 - 4:45 PM

Drew Hutchison was doomed by a poor first inning en route to his 11th loss on Sunday against the White Sox, yielding seven runs in seven innings overall.

Hutchison allowed two home runs in the first inning: a grand slam to Conor Gillaspie, and a two-run home run to Jordan Danks. From there, Hutchison was able to cauterize the wound, limiting the White Sox to one run over the next six innings. Overall, he allowed eight hits and walked three while striking out three. His ERA has ballooned considerably over the last month as it now sits at 4.81 with a 1.31 WHIP and a 127/47 K/BB ratio. Hutchison will face the Rays at home next Sunday.
Aug 17 - 5:39 PM

Drew Hutchison got blasted for six runs and seven hits over 5 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Mariners.

Toronto was coming off Sunday's 6 hour and 37 minute, 19-inning victory against the Tigers, and it showed. But it started out so well for their young hurler. Hutchison retired the first six batters he faced, and then impressively danced out of a jam in the third inning. He gave up a few runs in the fourth, but struck out the side in the fifth, which convinced John Gibbons to send him out in the sixth. That, friends, was a mistake. The Mariners scored seven runs and batted around; four of those runs were charged to Hutchison. The 23-year-old right-hander comes out of the massacre with a 4.60 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and a 124/44 K/BB ratio, which he'll take into Sunday's matchup against the White Sox.
Aug 12 - 12:58 AM

Drew Hutchison was terrific on Wednesday, allowing only one run on one hit and a walk over 8 2/3 innings against the Orioles.

The right-hander struck out the first two batters he faced in the ninth but was lifted after walking Nick Markakis and running his pitch count up to 115. Hutchison accrued eight strikeouts on the evening, and the only blemish on his line came in the second inning when Chris Davis hit a solo home run. Hutchison has a 4.39 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and a 119/42 K/BB ratio, which he'll look to continue to improve upon when he takes on the Mariners to start an eight-game road trip on Monday.
Aug 6 - 9:57 PM

Drew Hutchison was only able to make it through three innings, allowing four runs in a no-decision in Thursday's win against the Astros.

Hutchison was inefficient over the three frames, needing 61 pitches to see his way through. He allowed six hits -- including a home run to Jon Singleton -- while walking none and striking out two. The right-hander has seen his ERA skyrocket into the mid-4.00's recently, as it currently sits at 4.62. He'll try to rebound at home against the Orioles in his next start.
Jul 31 - 11:13 PM

Drew Hutchison delivered a strong start in Saturday’s victory over the Yankees, allowing just two runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Hutchison racked up seven strikeouts while issuing just three walks in the game. The only blemish on his day was a two-run homer off the bat of Brian McCann in the fourth inning. The rookie right-hander now owns a 4.44 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 109/41 K/BB ratio over his 119 2/3 innings on the year. He’ll look to carry over this strong start when he takes on the Astros in Houston on Thursday.
Jul 26 - 4:35 PM

Drew Hutchison yielded six runs and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Hutchison didn't get much help from his outfield in the two-run first, but he wasn't fooling anyone tonight anyway. He also gave up six runs last time out against the Rays, and his stuff just isn't what it was at the start of the year. The Jays were prepared for him to wear down in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, but they were surely hoping it wouldn't happen so soon.
Jul 21 - 10:03 PM

Drew Hutchison gave up six earned runs in 5 1/3 innings as the Blue Jays fell to the Rays on Saturday.

Tampa Bay got to him for six hits and five walks. Hutchison is very talented but has been inconsistent this season and will head into the All-Star break with a 6-8 record, 4.16 ERA, and 1.30 WHIP in 110 1/3 innings.
Jul 12 - 7:47 PM

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.
