Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison will join rotation

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 14:11:07 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison will join the starting rotation when SP Aaron Sanchez begins pitching out of the bullpen, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: If you need pitching, Hutchison is worth a grab and stash in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. He sports a solid 3.12 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with 75 strikeouts over 69 1/3 innings for Class AAA Buffalo. Still, there is no timetable for when he'll rejoin the Toronto rotation, so don't pin your hopes on Hutchison.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison heading down

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:43:17 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays plan to option SP Drew Hutchison to Class AAA Buffalo Tuesday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a spot start Sunday. He might be back at some point, but drop him in all fantasy formats and avoid him in DFS.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison returning to minors

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:48:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison is expected to be optioned to the minors Monday, April 25, but because he has three-plus years of Major League Baseball service, he first has to clear optional waivers.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison allowed two runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts through 5 2/3 innings during his win over the Oakland Athletics Sunday, April 24. He has fantasy potential, but he doesn't have a starting job or roster spot in the majors right now. He is currently nothing more than a potential stash candidate in AL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison facing Oakland Sunday

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:04:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison will be recalled from Class AAA Buffalo to start against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison couldn't find any traction on the road last season and returned a disastrous 9.83 ERA and 2.06 WHIP through 14 away games, which can sink a weekly lineup in a hurry. He is talented, though, as proven by his 2.91 home ERA last season, so there is upside. View Hutchison as a high-risk, high-reward start in all fantasy formats Sunday, and he could be worth a speculative flier as a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues if he has a solid outing Sunday.

Blue Jays | Toronto could use six starters

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 17:03:52 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are entertaining the idea of temporarily using a six-man rotation, in order to limit the number of innings that SPs Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman will throw this season. SP Drew Hutchison, who is currently pitching for Class AAA Buffalo, is the most likely candidate to be used as a sixth starter, although RPs Gavin Floyd and Jesse Chavez (back) could also step into the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Toronto's starters lead the majors in innings pitched (95) and the team is in the midst of a stretch where they play 29 games in 30 days, hence the desire to add another starter. Hutchison is worthy of consideration for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues if he gets promoted. Manager John Gibbons views Floyd as a pitcher only capable of throwing one to three innings at this point and Chavez has been battling a sore back recently, so they appear less likely to be used in starting roles.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison leaves game early

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 12:00:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison (head) left the game early Sunday, March 27, after he was hit in the head by a throw from C A.J. Jimenez. Hutchison was able to walk off the field with the team's trainer.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison has been solid during spring training but may not make the 25-man roster. Hutchison would be an AL-only option if he makes the team but most owners can avoid him.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison to start in minors?

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 13:29:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison appears to be on the outside looking in for the competition for the fifth starting spot, and he's likely to begin the year at Class AAA Buffalo. SPs Aaron Sanchez, Jesse Chavez, Gavin Floyd and Roberto Hernandez will be the others competing with Hutchison in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: This race likely comes down to Sanchez and Hutchison, and whoever performs better this spring could win it. Sanchez has the most upside of the group, but concerns over home-run allowance and questions about his health should temper your expectations.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison favorite for rotation spot

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 13:58:13 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison will likely receive the first crack at the final starting rotation spot as he competes with SPs Jesse Chavez and Aaron Sanchez for the spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison went 13-5 but also had a 5.57 ERA in 2015 and struck out fewer hitters per nine innings than in his rookie season. That'll keep him from going until the later rounds in most fantasy drafts, but scooping him up then is surely worthwhile. He has the skills to be useful in most formats if you pick your spots wisely.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 14:35:28 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison re-signed a one-year, $2.2 million contract to avoid arbitration Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison returned a 5.57 ERA last season and was ultimately bounced from the starting rotation. He is nothing more than a player to watch leading into the season, and at best, he is a late-round flier in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Mark Buehrle could start Sunday

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 20:24:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle could start Sunday, Oct. 4, on one day's rest, manager John Gibbons said. SP Drew Hutchison will likely start if Buehrle doesn't.

Fantasy Tip: It is best to avoid Buehrle ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) at FantasyScore if he does start since he is unlikely to pitch deep into the game on such short rest. Hutchison ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) wouldn't be much better considering his struggles on the road this season.
