Drew Hutchison's early-season struggles continued in Friday's no-decision against the Braves as he surrendered five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.
On the plus side, he did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night while walking three. The Jays staked him to an early 4-1 lead but Hutchison couldn't get through the fifth inning, with a two-out two-run triple from Andrelton Simmons chasing him from the contest. Through three starts, he owns an uninspiring 7.20 ERA and 1.53 WHIP despite his 14/6 K/BB ratio across 15 innings. He'll look to get back on track on Thursday against the Orioles. Apr 17 - 10:23 PM

Drew Hutchison struggled in Sunday's start versus the Orioles, yielding seven runs in 4 1/3 innings.

It was a slugfest, as opposing pitcher Chris Tillman also served up two home runs. The two Hutchison allowed: a two-run homer to Adam Jones in the first inning, and a three-run home run to Travis Snider in the fifth. Overall, Hutchison allowed seven hits, walked one, and struck out five. Hutchison matches up against the Braves at home in his next start.
Apr 12 - 5:20 PM

Drew Hutchison spun six innings of one-run ball in the Blue Jays' 6-1 Opening Day win over the Yankees.

The only real blemish of the afternoon for Hutchison was Brett Gardner's sixth-inning solo home run. Hutchison allowed only two other hits -- both singles -- and he struck out three. The young right-hander finished the 2014 season with a 4.48 ERA, but his 1.26 WHIP and 9.0 K/9 from last year are much more indicative of his high-level ability. He'll get the Orioles on the road in his second start of 2015.
Apr 6 - 4:35 PM

The Blue Jays have named Drew Hutchison their Opening Day starter.

R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle have a big experience edge on Hutchison, but the young right-hander is the easy choice here. Hutchison posted a 4.48 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 184/60 K/BB ratio for the Jays last season and could take another step forward in 2015.
Mar 31 - 8:01 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched five strong innings, allowing just one run, Friday versus the Tigers.

Hutchison struck out six and walked one. He's been strong all spring, going 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA. He rates as at least a fringe mixed-league starter this year, even though he's not in a great situation for pitchers in Toronto.
Mar 27 - 4:09 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched four scoreless innings Wednesday in the Blue Jays' 5-2 win over the Orioles.

The Jays already needed Hutchison to build on last year's modest success in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery, but now it's even more important with Marcus Stroman down. He should prove to be a solid No. 3 starter, but his fantasy upside is limited by pitching in Toronto and the AL East. He might be a fringe mixed-league guy anyway.
Mar 11 - 4:01 PM

Drew Hutchison won his 11th game of the season, allowing two runs in five innings on Friday against the Orioles.

Hutchison ends his up-and-down season with a positive. The right-hander gave up five hits, walked one, and struck out eight Oriole batters. He finishes 2014 with an 11-13 record, a 4.48 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a 184/60 K/BB ratio. Hutchison's peripheral numbers suggest he may be a bit better than his ERA currently indicates, which, if accurate, gives him additional fantasy value in 2015.

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.

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.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 10:45:00 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.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 11:43:00 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
