Drew Hutchison, #36

News
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 catcher Dioner Navarro remains without a timetable for his return to the big leagues while dealing with a hamstring injury, according to MLB.com.

Navarro, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the injury, felt tightness while rehabbing in Dunedin, Fla. The catcher is hitting .267 with four RBI in 30 at-bats this season.

News
Several days after reports that the Blue Jays are considering moving him to the bullpen, right-hander Aaron Sanchez beat the Indians on Saturday.

But it was not the kind of performance that would change their minds.

Sanchez benefitted from a prolific Toronto offense and anemic Indians bats with runners on base. He surrendered two runs on four hits and six walks in 5 2/3 innings, leaving in the sixth with the bases loaded.

John Gibbons wasn't down on Sanchez after the game.

"He got a lot of ground balls today," he told MLB.com. "...When guys are on base, he's able to get out of some innings like that. These last few starts, he's been pretty effective but he's walked a lot of guys too. Over time, that's not going to work, so he's get to get in the zone better."

Sanchez faced 26 batters in less than six innings, but still raised his record to 2-2 and lowered his ERA to 4.62. If he remains in the rotation, he will start again Friday against Boston.

Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis went 1 for 5 with a grand slam in his team's 10-7 loss to the Indians Sunday.

The home run was already the seventh of the season for Travis, who has slowed down offensively over the last week but is still hitting .318/.394/.625 with six doubles and 23 RBI in 88 at-bats. Sunday's loss was also his first time not drawing a walk in five games.

"I don't think there's a silver lining today," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "The kid's good. What are you going to say, he's been doing it all year. It's not like he's on a little hot streak. He's been doing it all year. I think he's a pretty special find for us."

Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey (1-3) gave up one run on three hits in eight innings of work against the Yankees Monday to collect his first win of the season on Monday. 

The lone run allowed scored in the seventh inning when Carlos Beltran led off with a double and came around to score on a ground out. 

"I can honestly say, I think that was as good as I've seen him in three years," manager John Gibbons said of Dickey after the win, per MLB.com. "He was really good tonight, and we needed it after a tough loss yesterday to bounce back, even though it didn't happen until late in the game. A lot of movement; I can't remember any mistakes. Usually his mistakes are when his ball flattens out a little bit, and I didn't see any of those today. He was good. Justice served, because he deserved to win on that one."

Dickey had allowed 15 runs over his last 18 2/3 innings (7.23 ERA) before Monday's gem. 

Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin was disappointed the offense couldn't give Dickey more support.

"You go eight innings strong, give up one run, you want your pitcher to get the W out there," he said.

Dickey will return to the mound for his next start Sunday against the Red Sox.

In limited action this season, Valencia is batting a crisp .379 with three RBI in 11 games played.
