Hutchison signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Sunday.
Hutchison pitched at the Triple-A level in 2019, posting a 5.82 ERA and 1.49 WHIP over 25 appearances (23 starts). After playing in the American Association last year, he'll likely serve as organizational depth for the Tigers in 2021.
Hutchison was traded from the Twins to the Angels on Monday in exchange for cash considerations, Morrie Silver reports.
Hutchison struggled with Triple-A Rochester, accruing a 6.11 ERA and 1.66 WHIP with 52 strikeouts over 45.2 innings this season. He'll aim to turn things around with the Bees following Monday's trade.
Hutchison agreed to a minor-league contract with the Twins on Friday, La Velle E. Neal of the Star Tribune reports.
Hutchison had previously been part of the Yankees minor-league system, posting a 5.14 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 61 strikeouts over 63 innings this season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He'll now head to Rochester, where he's expected to start Friday night at Toledo, per Neal.
Hutchison was assigned to minor-league camp Friday.
Hutchison had been in big-league camp as a non-roster invitee but wasn't expected to make the Opening Day roster. He recorded a 6.75 ERA in 42.2 major-league innings last season and isn't on the Yankees' 40-man roster, so his odds of making a significant impact this season are low.
Hutchison signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Hutchison split the 2018 season between Philadelphia and Texas, compiling a forgettable 6.75 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 31:26 K:BB over 42.2 innings. The 28-year-old last posted an sub-5.00 ERA in the majors in 2013 and should serve as organizational depth for the Yankees.
Hutchison was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.
Hutchison will report to the Express after struggling to an 8.86 ERA across five starts (21.1 innings) with the Rangers. It's unclear who will take his spot in the big-league rotation at the moment.
Hutchison didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 10-7 loss to the Twins, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk over four innings while striking out two.
The 28-year-old appeared headed for his second win as a Ranger and third of the season when he was handed a 6-0 lead through four innings, but after four straight Twins led off the fifth with hits -- including a Tyler Austin solo shot to begin the rally -- Hutchison hit the showers. He'll take a ghastly 6.75 ERA into his next start Wednesday at home against the Angels.
Hutchison didn't factor into the decision against the Giants on Friday, yielding six earned runs on seven hits through four innings, striking out two and walking four as the Rangers eventually prevailed 7-6 in 10 innings.
It was the second time in his last four appearances that Hutchison has given up six earned and he's issued more walks than strikeouts twice over that same timeframe. That leaves Hutchison with a 6.52 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP over 38.2 innings, numbers that leave him well off the fantasy radar.
Hutchison will start Thursday against San Francisco.
The Rangers' rotation was in a state of flux for a few days due to injuries, but it's been straightened out. Hutchison is pitching on five days rest after picking up his first win as a Ranger last Friday against the Angels. In three starts for Texas, the right-hander has a 7.43 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 13.1 innings.
Hutchison (2-2) allowed two runs on five hits in a win over the Angels on Friday, striking out six and walking one in five innings.
Hutchison made his third start for the Rangers this season, picking up his first win with the new ball club. In three starts Hutchison is 1-1 with a 7.43 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP. On the season the right-hander has a 5.71 ERA with a 27:21 K:BB in 34.2 innings. He's slated to take on the A's in Oakland for his next start, but that may change if Mike Minor (back) returns to the starting rotation soon.
Hutchison will start Friday's game against the Angels after Mike Minor was scratched with back stiffness.
Hutchison's start was moved up a day to compensate for Minor needing at least one game to get over his back issue. He gave up three runs over 5.1 innings against the Yankees in his last outing -- a marked improvement after being shelled for six earned over 3.0 innings in his Ranger debut.
Hutchison gave up three runs in 5.1 innings Saturday against the Yankees, allowing five hits (including one homer) and four walks while striking out just two. He did not factor into the decision.
Hutchison gave up a pair of runs in the first inning, allowing a Giancarlo Stanton homer and a Greg Bird double, before settling in for four scoreless frames. He left with one out in the sixth after allowing another double to Bird, who would come around to score. It wasn't a particularly inspiring showing, as he gave up at least one baserunner in every inning, but he did at least limit the damage done by a strong offense. He's tentatively lined up to start next Saturday against the Angels.
Hutchison will make his next start Saturday against the Yankees, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Manager Jeff Banister confirmed the Rangers will stay on a six-man rotation through the team's next off day, Aug. 15. That means Hutchison will get at least one more start, although it will come against a dangerous lineup. Hutchison was signed last weekend and made his Texas debut Sunday, allowing six runs over three innings in a loss to Baltimore.
Hutchison, who was signed as a free agent Saturday and started Sunday, is not guaranteed a second start, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Manager Jeff Banister would not commit to what is next for Hutchison, who tossed three shaky innings and twice gave up the lead after receiving it. "We've seen better stuff. This is not indicative of what we've seen in the past," said Banister. "We'll evaluate where we're at and make those decisions." When the Rangers announced Hutchison as Sunday's starter, the manager indicated he'd stick with a six-man rotation during the current cycle. The Rangers signed the 27-year-old right-hander with the idea of giving him an extended look as a candidate for next season's rotation, which suggests someone will have to go. That someone is likely Bartolo Colon after he gets the victory he needs to pass Dennis Martinez as the all-time leading winner among pitchers from Latin America.
Hutchison (1-2) took the loss Sunday, allowing six runs on six hits and three walks across just three innings in the 9-6 loss to Baltimore. He took the loss, failing to strike out a batter and yielding two homers.
Sunday was definitely not the first impression Hutchison wanted to make in his Rangers debut. It was his first MLB appearance since May 30, when he was working out of the bullpen with the Phillies. For the year, Hutchison owns an unsightly 19:16 K:BB and 6.29 ERA in 24.1 innings. Assuming he makes his next scheduled start, he'll have a tough matchup against the Yankees next weekend.
The Rangers added Hutchison to the active roster ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Orioles, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Hutchison will pitch in the big leagues for the first time since late May after he exercised an opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Dodgers a few days ago before signing with Texas. While he wasn't particularly successful working in relief for the Phillies earlier this season, Hutchison shined in a starting role at Triple-A Oklahoma City in the Dodgers organization, accruing a 2.14 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 42 innings. Hutchison's addition will give the Rangers a six-man rotation for the time being, with the right-hander's performance Sunday likely dictating whether manager Jeff Banister sticks with that setup going forward.
Hutchison was signed by the Rangers and will pitch the series finale against Baltimore on Sunday, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Hutchison opted out of his minor-league deal with the Dodgers earlier this week and was brought in by the Rangers for an audition Saturday. "All the reports have been really good,'' Texas manager Jeff Banister said. "He's been throwing the ball well at Triple-A." The 27-year-old right-hander was 4-1 with a 2.14 ERA in 42 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City and finished his stint in the Pacific Coast League having pitched 23 consecutive scoreless innings. Banister indicated the team will use a six-man rotation for at least one turn.
Hutchison opted out of his minor-league deal with the Dodgers on Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Hutchison appeared in 11 games at the big-league level in 2018, accruing a 4.64 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with 19 strikeouts over 21.1 innings as a reliever. He'll look to latch on elsewhere after becoming a free agent.
Hutchison signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Saturday, Alex Freedman of the Oklahoma City Dodgers reports.
Hutchison posted a 4.64 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 21.1 innings with the Phillies earlier this season prior to being designated for assignment May 31 and subsequently rejecting his assignment to Triple-A. The 27-year-old will join Triple-A Oklahoma City and could end up in the big leagues at some point if injury issues continue to plague Los Angeles' pitching staff.
Hutchison was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, but he rejected the assignment and will become a free agent, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Hutchison accrued a 4.64 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with a 19:13 K:BB across 21.1 innings for the Phillies in 2018. He'll look to latch on elsewhere after spending time with Toronto, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia over the last six years.
