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.
Sep 8 - 7:40 PM

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.
Sep 6 - 3:25 PM

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.
Aug 1 - 6:54 PM

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.
Jul 8 - 3:37 PM

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.
Jul 7 - 11:39 PM

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.
Jul 6 - 4:31 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 10:20 AM

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.
Apr 26 - 1:59 PM

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.
