Phillies select the contract of RHP Drew Hutchison.
It means Hutchison has made the Opening Day roster, as the Phillies will go with an eight-man bullpen to begin the 2018 season. The former Blue Jay threw the ball well this spring, posting a 3.45 ERA and striking out 14 in his 16 2/3 innings. There won't be any fantasy value in his long-relief efforts. Mar 25 - 8:36 AM

Drew Hutchison allowed just one base hit and no runs through four innings of a 4-1 Grapefruit League win over the Tigers.

The only knock was a single by Miguel Cabrera in the first inning. Hutchison fanned three and walked three while improving his ERA to 2.75 through 19 2/3 spring innings. He was considered a longshot to make the team after signing a minor league contract in the offseason, but he has pitched plenty well enough to force the team to give him strong consideration at this point. For his career he has a 4.93 ERA in 82 games, including 74 starts. The fly-ball pitcher has exhibited strong strikeout and walk rates in his career but has been burned by the longball.
Mar 24 - 6:10 PM

Drew Hutchison limited the Red Sox to one run in five innings on Monday.

Hutchison is unlikely to secure a spot in the Phillies' rotation, but maybe someone else will want him if he finishes the spring strong. He has a 3.45 ERA and a 14/5 K/BB ratio through 15 2/3 innings.
Mar 19 - 5:13 PM

Drew Hutchison allowed one run in three innings of relief work Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Hutchison struck out four and walked none. He's allowed two runs in eight innings this spring to help his chances of claiming one of the two openings in Philadelphia's rotation. He's likely still behind Ben Lively, Nick Pivetta and Mark Leiter.
Mar 7 - 3:53 PM

Drew Hutchison tossed three scoreless innings out of the pen Friday against the Rays.

Hutchison has allowed one run in five innings as he attempts to claim one of the openings in the Phillies' rotation. He doesn't have much fantasy upside, but we haven't given up on him as a capable fifth starter for a major league team.
Mar 2 - 4:55 PM

Phillies signed RHP Drew Hutchison to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.

Hutchison spent the entire 2017 season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Pirates, posting a 3.56 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 124/57 K/BB ratio in 159 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old right-hander will function as depth for a Phillies rotation that carries some serious question marks into 2018. He was once a promising young starter with the Blue Jays, making his major league debut at age 21 back in 2012.

The Orioles are showing interest in free agent Drew Hutchison as they seek to fill three spots in their rotation.

There's a chance that the Orioles will spend to fill one of their vacancies, but they're need some bargain-basement options, too. Hutchison qualifies, as he's likely to have to settle for a minor league deal after being let go by the Pirates. The 27-year-old righty is 30-21 with a 4.93 ERA in the bigs, though just 24 of his 418 career innings have come the last two years.
Feb 4 - 1:13 PM

Drew Hutchison has elected free agency.

The right-hander has never been able to deliver consistent results at the major league level, but is still talented enough that there should be several teams clamoring to take him on as a reclamation project.

Pirates sent RHP Drew Hutchison outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Due to his minor league service time, Hutchison will become a free agent at the end of the season. The shine has seemingly worn off this once highly-touted prospect.

Pirates optioned RHP Drew Hutchison to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hutchison was in the mix for the fifth spot in the rotation this spring, but he was blasted for nine runs over 3 2/3 innings in his final spring start Tuesday against the Red Sox. The Pirates will choose either Tyler Glasnow or Trevor Williams for the fifth spot.
Wed, Mar 29, 2017 11:13:00 AM

Drew Hutchison was lit up for nine runs on 10 hits and two walks over just 3 2/3 frames against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

This isn't the last impression Hutchison was looking to make before the Pirates pick a No. 5 starter. Six of the runs came in the first inning, and the righty was touched up for three more in the fourth. Hutchison has been absolutely dreadful over his last three starts this spring, pushing his Grapefruit League ERA up to 10.02. It would be a surprise if he cracks the rotation at this point.
Tue, Mar 28, 2017 10:36:00 PM

Drew Hutchison was roughed up for six runs on 10 hits and two walks over 4 2/3 frames versus the Red Sox on Thursday.

Seven of the 10 hits were singles, but that's not really comforting. Hutchison looked good in his first three starts this spring but has now been pummeled for six runs each of the last two times out, allowing a whopping 23 baserunners along the way. He'll have to shape up in a hurry if he wants a spot in the Pirates' rotation.
Thu, Mar 23, 2017 06:28:00 PM

Drew Hutchison was lit up for six runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Orioles on Friday.

That's a definite setback to Hutchison's chances of securing a rotation spot. Hutchison had allowed two runs in nine innings this spring, but he gave up runs in three of his four innings of work today. Steven Brault could be back in the lead for the fifth spot now.
Fri, Mar 17, 2017 04:54:00 PM

Drew Hutchison held the Rays to one run in four innings and struck out five Friday in the Pirates' 3-1 victory.

Hutchison must feel like he's still in the AL East; he's faced the Orioles twice and now Tampa Bay in his three spring outings. He's done well, though, allowing just one run and striking out nine in seven innings. He entered camp as something of an underdog to be the Pirates' fifth starter, but he might be moving into the driver's seat now. He's a definite NL-only sleeper.
Fri, Mar 10, 2017 04:38:00 PM

Drew Hutchison pitched three scoreless innings and struck out four Friday against the Orioles.

Hutchison didn't face the best of competition while working the sixth-through-eighth innings in this one, but he couldn't have hurt his chances in the battle to become the Pirates' fifth starter. He's still a bit of an underdog for the role, but he's an NL-only sleeper.
