Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison struggles against Tigers on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison had a rough start against the Tigers on Friday. Hutchison allowed seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out four, but he needed 90 pitches and couldn't get out of the fifth. Hutchison increased his ERA to 5.23 in the 8-6 loss.

Hutchison (8-2) got in trouble early by allowing a run to score in the first inning. Then the wheels fell off in the fourth, when the Tigers put five-spot up on the board. 

The young right-hander has failed to go at least six innings in each of his last five starts.


Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison picks up eighth victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/28/2015) Drew Hutchison continued his surprising first half for the Blue Jays, going 5 2/3 innings to pick up his eighth win of the season Sunday in a triumph over the Rangers. 

Hutchison, who has now won three straight starts, struck out eight batters and walked three, elevating his pitch count to 97, which might explain his early exit despite allowing just one unearned run on four hits. 

The starter came into the game receiving more than seven runs of support from his team during his starts, and while he only got three runs Sunday, it was enough. Hutchison's ERA dipped to 4.99 and he has not tasted defeat since May 20. 


Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison pushed back to Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Drew Hutchison has been pushed back to Sunday against the Rangers, manager John Gibbons said Friday. Gibbons added he has not decided who will start Saturday.

Hutchison is 4-0 in his last six starts.


Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison likely pushed back to Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) The Blue Jays have altered their plan to go with a four-man rotation this week, according to MLB.com. They had considered it because they don't play Thursday, but are now leaning toward promoting a pitcher to start Saturday.

Drew Hutchison had originally been penciled in as the starter, but will now get an extra day of rest and pitch Sunday. The change might have been spurred by his mediocre performance Monday against the Rays in which he allowed three runs over five innings.

The rotation spot opened when right-hander Scott Copeland was demoted following a terrible performance against Baltimore.


Blue Jays P Drew Hutchison picks up seventh win of season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison allowed three runs in Monday night’s 8-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Hutchison went five innings and gave up nine hits, two walks and struck out six batters. Hutchison is now 7-1 this season but has allowed 12 earned runs over the past three starts.

Hutchison’s ERA is now 5.33 this season.

His next start is projected for Saturday against the Rangers.


Gibbons indicates Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison to start Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) The search for a Saturday starter for the Blue Jays could be over. if so, it didn't take them very long or very far.

John Gibbons suggested Monday that hot-and-cold right-hander Drew Hutchison could be moved up from Sunday to fill that role. He added that he will discuss it with general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

"I would guess that we'll just keep rolling and go back to Hutch," Gibbons told TSN 1050.

Hutchison, who is set to start Monday night against the Rays, has traded strong outings with poor ones lately. He tossed 5 2/3 shutout innings against the Mets on Wednesday, which followed an effort in which he allowed eight earned runs in 2 1/3 innings to Boston.


Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison holds Mets scoreless Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/17/2015) Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison fell one out shy of a quality start on Wednesday, but was still effective in his outing against the Mets. Hutchison tossed 5 2/3 shutout innings, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out five. He threw 105 pitches in the outing, but was not allowed to complete six innings.

He did manage to pick up his sixth win of the season, however, as the Blue Jays torched the Mets 8-0. This was something of a rebount effort for Hutchison, who got shelled for eight runs in 2 1/3 innings his last time out. 

"I’ll take it," said Hutchison, per the Toronto Sun. "It was tight for a while and they did a great job breaking it open. We played a good game all-the way around. The defence around me made a lot of good plays again tonight. It was just good to get a win again.

"I wasn’t as sharp as I would like to be. I threw too many pitches and I would have liked to get deeper into the game but I was able to make some big pitches when I needed to. Overall, tonight was a good step but I still need to get deeper into games."

Hutchison (6-1) will carry a 5.33 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Monday in Tampa against the Rays.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison blown out in 2 1/3 innings


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2015) Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison gave up eight runs in 2 1/3 innings on Friday against Boston. 

Hutchison allowed nine hits, three of them home runs. He walked three batters and struck out three. The Blue Jays rallied, however, allowing Hutchison to escape with a no-decision.

Hutchison's next start is Wednesday, against the Mets. 


Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison strong Saturday in victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison has been pulling a Jekyll-Hyde all season. The good Drew Hutchison showed up Saturday against Houston.

Hutchison allowed one run on six hits in 6 1/3 innings with one walk and five strikeouts in raising his record to 5-1 despite a poor 4.91 ERA.

The right-hander had surrendered at least four runs in four of his previous seven starts. But he has yielded only four runs in 26 1/3 innings in his other four outings combined.

Only an RBI single by Jose Altuve in the third prevented Hutchison from throwing shutout ball Saturday.

It remains to be seen if Jekyll or Hyde shows up Friday in Boston.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison gives up four runs vs. Twins Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison wasn't a factor in the decision on Sunday, allowing four earned runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 6-5 loss to the Twins.

Hutchison was able to hold the Twins to one run through five innings, but he gave up an RBI single in the sixth and followed it by serving up a game-tying two-run homer. The outing comes on the heels of a complete-game shutout for Hutchison, who has alternated between moments of brillance and frustration this season.

Hutchison owns a 5.26 ERA and 54:16 K:BB ratio in 63 1/3 innings. He's lined up to square off with the Astros at home on Saturday.


Fastball, slider fueling Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison's turnaround


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Following Monday's complete-game shutout against the White Sox, Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison has a 2.36 ERA and .220 opponents' batting average in his last four starts. It's been a nice turnaround after he posted an 8.88 ERA and .327 opponents' batting average in his previous five starts.

"It started with my fastball command that night (in Houston on May 14)," Hutchison said, per Sportsnet.ca. "I was able to hit down and away real consistent and then the last three innings that game I found my slider, and I feel like I’ve done a good job of repeating that and making good pitches and executing quality pitches in the zone, not just falling behind and throwing pitches in the zone.

"There’s a difference, and I feel like I’ve done a better job of that lately."


Drew Hutchison pitches complete game shutout for Blue Jays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison pitched his second career complete-game shutout on Monday, beating the White Sox to move to 4-1 on the season. 

Hutchison's previous shutout was May 16, 2014, at Texas.

"I think it started with my fastball command that night," Hutchison said, per MLB.com. "I was able to get down and away, real consistent, and the last few innings in that game, I found my slider. I feel like I've done a good job of repeating that, making better pitches, executing quality pitches in the zone."

On Sunday, he allowed just four hits without walking a batter. Hutchison struck out eight. He went the distance on 96 pitches, throwing 70 strikes.

"He was really hitting on everything, he had a good exploding fastball, some good breaking balls, mixed in some good changeups," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "So he had them swinging, he was hitting the zone and I don't know if he even broke a sweat tonight. That's one of those games where it's nice to sit back and watch because he was in total control."

Hutchison cut his ERA to 5.12. His next start is scheduled for Sunday, at Minnesota. 


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison allows four runs in loss vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison was stuck with a loss on Wednesday after giving up four earned runs on six hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 defeat against the Angels.

Hutchison (3-1) had been able to avoid losses this season despite an elevated ERA, but a two-run double in the seventh saw him lose the lead for good. His other two runs came on a bases-loaded walk in the fourth and a solo homer in the fifth.

Hutchison owns a 6.06 ERA and 43:16 K:BB ratio in 49 innings. He's slated to face the White Sox at home on Monday.


Blue Jays shuffle rotation, name Todd Redmond Monday starter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) The Blue Jays will start pitcher Todd Redmond in Monday's game against the Angels, Sportsnet reports.

Redmond struggled in two relief appearances in mid-April, giving up eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking five. He's made one start and three relief appearances with Triple-A Buffalo, posting a 4.50 ERA and 13:2 K:BB ratio in 14 innings.

With the change, the team is bumping back the rest of the rotation a day, with Monday's originally-scheduled starter, Aaron Sanchez, moving to Tuesday. Drew Hutchison and R.A. Dickey will pitch Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison strikes out nine in no decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison struck out nine batters in six innings, but a Houston rally against the bullpen left him with a no decision.

Hutchison allowed two runs on five hits and a walk. He threw 98 pitches, 58 for strikes and reduced his ERA to 6.17. His next start will be Tuesday against the Angels.  

"He bounced back after a little bit of a slow start, started using his changeup more and really threw a nice ballgame overall," manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison allows one run in win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison earned the win Saturday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits and one walk in five innings while striking out six in his team's 7-1 victory over the Red Sox.

Hutchison (3-0) had been knocked around in his previous two starts before finding his groove Saturday, with an RBI single in the fifth inning representing his only damage on the scoreboard. It was just his third quality start in seven outings this season.

"For his year, where he's at, I thought it was huge that he gets over that hump," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "There's absolutely nothing physical. I thought it might have been a mental thing, which is natural for a young guy like that. I thought it was very important and hopefully that can carry him on."

Hutchison owns a 6.69 ERA and 29:13 K:BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Astros in Houston Thursday.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison looking to fix mechanics to find slider


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison has struggled this season, and the problem seems to be that his slider has abandoned him. 

"When you look at the shape of the slider right now, there have been a couple of games where he has a little more of the vertical drop and the downward action," pitching coach Pete Walker said, per MLB.com. "For him, it is about staying on top of the baseball and it's about keeping that good depth on his slider … We definitely have to get back to that feel. He definitely had it at the end of last year and we're trying to get back to that right now." 

Walker thinks a tweak to Hutchison's mechanics should help him regain his slider. "His release point right now, we're trying to stay consistent with this slot and get it back to where it was last year," Walker said. "I think there have been times where he's been a little lower. His front hip opens up a little too soon at times and he tends to get around the baseball."


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison struggles in no-decision Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison didn't factor into the decision Sunday, allowing six earned runs on eight hits and one walk in 4 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 10-7 loss to the Indians.

Hutchison allowed a solo home run in the bottom of the third inning but was staked to a 6-1 lead after the top of the fourth due to a six-run frame by his offense. After surrendering a second run in the fourth inning, Hutchison came apart in the fifth, giving up two doubles, a single and a walk and seeing all four runners score in the inning, along with two others allowed by the bullpen.

"Our offense, once again, goes out there and puts up a lot of runs and I go out there and give it back and give it away like that," Hutchison said to MLB.com. "It's not good, and I killed our bullpen even more. Not being able to get through the fifth with a four-run lead is unacceptable."

Hutchison has been rocked twice in a row and three times in his six starts this season, giving up a total of 19 earned runs in those three games. He owns a 7.47 ERA and 23:12 K:BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings heading into Saturday's matchup with the Red Sox.


Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison allows six runs in no decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison allowed six runs on nine hits in four innings of work to earn a no decision in Toronto's 11-8 win over the Red Sox Tuesday. 

Hutchison's issues started in the second when he allowed a lead off double to Pablo Sandoval. After reaching third on a ground out, Sandoval scored on a Xander Bogaerts single to right. Then with two men on, Mookie Betts singled to right to bring home another run. Two more consecutive singles by Boston led to two more runs.

Hutchison, who remains 2-0, ballooned his ERA to 6.67 with six walks and no strikeouts in the contest. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Indians.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison strikes out seven in win vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison earned a win Thursday, allowing two earned runs on four htis in eight innings while striking out seven and walking none in his team's 7-6 victory over the Orioles.

"He really gave us what we needed," manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "I mean, we were fresh [in the bullpen], but we've been looking for that seven- or eight-inning start, that always helps everybody out."

Hutchison (2-0) was brilliant through the first five innings as his team built up a 7-0 lead. He then surrendered a solo home run in the sixth inning and another run on a fielder's choice in the seventh. The Orioles made a run in the ninth inning but fell just short of completing the comeback.

"I think you're just out there concentrating on one guy at a time," Hutchison said. "Maybe if you got deeper -- I haven't got deeper so I wouldn't know -- but I wasn't really thinking about [the perfect game]."

Hutchison owns a 5.48 ERA and 21:6 K:BB ratio in 23 innings over four starts. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox in Boston Wednesday.


Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison gets no decision after 4 2/3 innings


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison was touched for four earned runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings of work on Friday for a no decision against the Braves.

Hutchinson was removed in the fifth after surrendering back-to-back RBI triples to Andrelton Simmons and Jace Peterson.

He threw 99 pitches and recorded six strikeouts.

"He was kind of in and out. At times he was popping that fastball and locating it ... it's really what happens to him all the time," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He starts scattering it. It's pretty unanimous what happens to most pitchers. The game is being able to locate pitches, fastballs with some offspeed stuff when you get behind in the count."

"It looked like he had an aggressive mindset, just wasn't commanding the ball like he wanted to out there," Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin said.

Hutchinson next start is set for Thursday against the Orioles.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison surrenders seven runs vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison didn't factor into the season Sunday despite allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 4 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 10-7 win over the Orioles.

Hutchison (1-0) enjoyed a strong performance on Opening Day but couldn't keep things going Sunday, allowing home runs with runners on base in the first and fifth innings and also giving up two more runs in the third inning. His only saving grace was that the Blue Jays were able to score eight runs of their own through the first four innings.

Hutchison will look for a bounce-back performance Friday against the Braves.


Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison shuts down Yankees to win opener


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Drew Hutchison shut down the Yankees to record an Opening Day win, 6-1, on Monday. 

Hutchison got the start and didn't allow a hit until two outs in the fourth inning. He allowed three runs and one hit over six innings, striking out three and walking two.

Hutchison threw 57 strikes in his 93 pitches. The only run he allowed was a solo homer to Brett Gardner in the sixth.

"He worked on his changeup in Spring Training, I thought he was running a lot of balls inside, he was using both sides of the plate," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com.

The next start for Hutchison will likely be Sunday at Baltimore, against Chris Tillman. He is 4-1, 2.29 against the Orioles in his career.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison allowed three hits and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out one in his team's 9-7 win over the Red Sox Wednesday.

Hutchison's fine spring finale gives him a 1.50 ERA and 12:5 K:BB ratio in 18 spring innings. His next start will come against the Yankees Monday on Opening Day.
