      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Waiting for another MLB opportunity

      Hutchison is not yet close to becoming a permanent fixture in the team's starting rotation, MLB.comt reports. For now, Hutchison will retain his current role. He will likely receive another promotion when the Blue Jays want to give their starters an extra day of rest, and he remains the first line of defense if anyone goes down with an injury. Hutchison is still considered a top pitching prospect in the organization, but he struggled to consistently get major league hitters out over the past two and a half seasons. The club is perfectly content with allowing the righty more time to develop at Triple-A Buffalo.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Wins debut before heading back to Buffalo

      Hutchison showed flashes of dominance for the Blue Jays on Sunday, going 5 2/3 innings and giving up a pair of runs while striking out five in Toronto's 6-3 victory over Oakland. He was sent back to Triple-A following the game. The 25-year-old was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to make a spot start and give Toronto's starters an extra day of rest, and he received tons of praise for his effort. Although he was sent back to the minors after the game, the right-hander will likely be back soon. Having Hutchison allows the Blue Jays to monitor the innings and health of their starting rotation, in anticipation of another run toward the postseason. While manager John Gibbons has expressed a six-man rotation is not something the team will use, he conveyed that Hutchison provides the luxury of having a Major League-caliber starter waiting in the wings if necessary.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: To be sent down after Sunday's start

      Hutchison will be sent down following his start Sunday against Oakland, Blue Jays play-by-play announcer Mike Wilner reports. It was announced Friday that Hutchison would come up for the start Sunday after starting the season at Triple-A Buffalo, but that will be his only appearance on his short stint. Hutchison has plenty of starting experience at the big league level, but the Blue Jays rotation appears to be cemented for now. The 25-year-old right-hander will likely be back up with the Blue Jays again this season, but it's unclear if it will only be as an occasional spot starter.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Will start on Sunday

      Hutchison will be promoted and start for the Blue Jays on Sunday, John Hickey of Bay Area News reports. Hutchison opened the season with the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons, where he has a record a 0-1 record with a 4.11 ERA and 20 strikeouts through three starts. The 25-year-old was the Blue Jays' Opening Day starter in 2015 and posted a 13-5 record with a 5.57 ERA last year, but failed to make the rotation out of Spring Training this season. The The Blue Jays are going through a stretch in which they play 29 games in 30 days and bringing Hutchison on as a sixth starter will give the remaining members of the rotation some much-needed rest.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Looking at getting called up soon

      The Blue Jays are thinking of temporarily adding a sixth starter, a role Hutchison would likely be called on to fill, MLB.com reports. Adding Hutchison would buy an extra day of rest for each starter and help the club get through its current stretch of 29 games in 30 days. The idea of using a sixth starter is not new. Toronto took a similar approach last season when right-hander Scott Copeland was promoted from the Minor Leagues for the same reason. Through three starts at AAA Buffalo, Hutchison is 0-1 with a 4.11 ERA and 20 strikeouts through 15.1 innings.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Optioned to Triple-A

      The Blue Jays optioned Hutchison (head) to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday. Hutchison made a run at a starting spot with the big club by posting a 3.26 ERA in six spring outings, but there simply was not enough room for him in the rotation. The Blue Jays do want him to continue starting, though, so they sent him to Buffalo to work in that role. He started 71 games for the Blue Jays over the last three seasons, so there is a good chance he joins the rotation at some point this season.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Hit in ahead Sunday, presumed to be OK

      Hutchison exited Sunday's spring training game after he was struck in the back of the head by a catcher attempting to throw out a baserunner, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Hutchison was able to stand up on his own power and appeared to want to stay in the game, but was pulled after further discussion. He'll likely be evaluated further in order for the team to be certain he is entirely free of concussion symptoms. Until further notice, Hutchison should be considered day-to-day in advance of his next spring start -- an important one, as he continues to battle for the Jays' fifth starter job.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Triple-A bound to open 2016?

      Hutchison will likely begin the season as the Opening Day starter at Triple-A Buffalo, Sportsnet reports. Aaron Sanchez and Gavin Floyd appear to be ahead of him in the battle for the Jays' No. 5 starter job to begin the season. Hutchison has allowed six runs -- five earned -- on nine hits with an 8:3 K:BB in 11.1 innings in Grapefruit League play this spring. Even if Hutchison opens the year at Buffalo, it's reasonable to think that he'll be the first starter recalled when the need arises with the big club.

      Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Avoids arbitration with Blue Jays

      Hutchison agreed to a one-year, $2.2 million deal with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports. As things stand, Hutchison will be competing with Jesse Chavez for the final spot in the Blue Jays rotation in spring training. A popular breakout candidate in 2015, Hutchison was abjectly bad in almost every sense, posting a 19.4% K-rate -- his lowest mark since 2012, and a 4.42 FIP. Even if he gets luckier than he did last year (5.57 ERA), it's buyer beware until Hutchison can tap into his potential for a prolonged stretch of starts.

      Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison to start Thursday

      Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison will start Thursday's game against the Orioles, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports. David Price is being pushed back to line him up for Game 1 of the ALDS, affording Hutchison another starting opportunity. While he is 13-4 on the year, Hutchison has struggled mightily throughout the season (5.33 ERA, 1.46 WHIP), and he made just one appearance out of the bullpen (11 pitches) after being bumped from the rotation following his Sept. 9 start.
