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.
