Blue Jays and RHP Drew Hutchison avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.2 million contract.

Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro acknowledged Wednesday that Drew Hutchison is drawing trade interest but then said the team expects to keep him.

Shapiro doesn't want to sell low on the 25-year-old right-hander, who had an unsightly 5.57 ERA in 150 1/3 innings with the Blue Jays in 2015. Hutchison makes for a decent bounceback candidate in 2016 -- talent has never been the issue -- and he is under contractual control with Toronto through 2018. He's projected to make around $2.5 million next year.

Drew Hutchison will start for the Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon against the Orioles.

Hutchison was moved into a bullpen role in mid-September, but he'll get one final turn as a starter before the regular season comes to a close. The 25-year-old right-hander is ticketed for long relief in the playoffs.

Drew Hutchison has been removed from the Blue Jays' rotation and will pitch in relief down the stretch.

Hutchison had more road troubles last Wednesday, yielding six runs in 3 1/3 innings at Fenway Park. The young right-hander has been very good at home for the Blue Jays and he's sitting on a 13-4 record, but his 5.33 season ERA is more indicative of how he has pitched overall.

Drew Hutchison was lit up for six runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

After six straight home starts, Hutchison finally pitched on the road again tonight, and it went about well as his previous ones did. He's 11-2 with a 2.91 ERA in 15 starts in Toronto and 2-2 with a 9.44 ERA in 12 starts elsewhere. He's given up eight homers in 92 2/3 innings at home and 12 in 54 1/3 innings on the road. The Blue Jays likely will try to keep him starting in Toronto as much as possible the rest of the way.

Drew Hutchison had a rare off-night at the Rogers Centre on Friday, surrendering six runs on nine hits over his five innings of work.

He struck out two and didn't issue a walk in the contest. While Hutchison's overall numbers on the season aren't impressive, he entered Friday's start with an 11-1 mark and 2.47 ERA at home. His biggest problem Friday was his inability to keep the ball in the yard, serving up a pair of homers to Chris Davis and a solo shot to Matt Wieters. He'll look to get back on track on Wednesday against the Red Sox in Boston.

Drew Hutchison cruised to an easy victory over the Tigers on Saturday, allowing just one run on six hits over seven strong innings.

Hutchison racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. The only scoring against him came on a fielder's choice that was nearly a double play in the third inning. His home and away splits continue to boggle the mind as he's now 11-1 with a 2.47 ERA in the hitter's paradise that is the Rogers Centre, while compiling an unfathomable 9.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP over 11 starts away from home. Fantasy owners can safely roll him out again on Friday when he takes on the Orioles in Toronto.

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

Hutchison will return to the rotation on Saturday against the Tigers. The 24-year-old hurler sits at 12-2 on the season despite a 5.06 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 131 2/3 innings in his first 24 starts.

Drew Hutchison is expected to return to the Blue Jays' rotation August 29 against the Tigers.

Hutchison was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday as the Jays entered a stretch of eight games in 10 days (which has allowed them to use a four-man rotation). The 24-year-old right-hander threw 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in a win over the Yankees, though he still holds an ugly 5.06 ERA for the season.

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

Toronto will roll with a four-man rotation over an upcoming stretch of eight games in 10 days. Hutchison should return after that. He threw 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in a big victory over the Yankees and also looked sharp last Tuesday against the A's. The 24-year-old right-hander is 12-2 this season despite a 5.06 ERA.

Drew Hutchison enjoyed some more home cooking Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 frames of one-run ball in a 3-1 victory over the Yankees.

He struck out five, walked only one and yielded just three hits, with Jacoby Ellsbury's solo shot in the sixth inning representing the only dent in the scoreboard. It's yet another superb effort from Hutchison at Rogers Centre, where he boasts a 2.57 ERA for the season. On the road, he holds a 9.00 mark. He'll be on the road in his next outing when he takes on the Angels in Anaheim next weekend.

Drew Hutchison pitched seven innings of two-run ball to earn his 11th win of the season on Tuesday against the Athletics.

Hutchison allowed a run on a Danny Valencia double in the first inning and that was the extent of the damage through seven innings. He allowed a leadoff single to begin the eighth and was immediately lifted, but reliever Aaron Sanchez eventually allowed the inherited runner to score. Overall, Hutchison gave up four hits and a pair of walks while striking out six. The inconsistent hurler has a 5.26 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP and a 110/39 K/BB ratio over 125 innings. He'll host the Yankees in his next outing.

Drew Hutchison won Wednesday despite allowing seven runs -- three earned -- in five innings against the Twins.

Only Hutchison. Really, only Hutchison. The guy is 10-2 this season with a 5.42 ERA. The nine runs the Jays scored for him tonight hardly looks out of place. They've scored at least six runs in his last six starts (two of which they lost anyway). They've scored doubles figures in his starts three times, and they've never once failed to score at least three runs in his 22 outings.

Drew Hutchison gave up four runs (three earned) over five-plus innings Friday in a no-decision against the Royals.

Hutchison allowed three runs in the first inning and was charged with the final run after being pulled in the sixth. He gave up seven hits and walked one while registering just one strikeout. The 24-year-old has now failed to complete six innings in eight out of his last nine starts. He'll bring a 5.42 ERA into a start against the Twins next week at home.

Drew Hutchison allowed six runs -- five earned -- over four innings Saturday in a no-decision in Seattle.

Toronto didn't take the lead for good until the top of the ninth inning. Hutchison was scratched from scheduled starts Thursday and Friday due to illness, and he was probably dealing with some level of fatigue on Saturday afternoon. The young right-hander has a rough 5.42 ERA on the season.
