Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Moves past oblique injury
Hutchison (oblique) struck out two and gave up one earned run on three hits and a walk over three innings Tuesday for Triple-A Buffalo in the club's 7-2 win over Rochester.
Hutchison battled a left oblique injury in the latter stages of spring training, but he was able to make enough progress in his recovery from the injury to avoid a stint on the 7-day injured list to open the Triple-A campaign. Though he doesn't possess a spot on the Blue Jays' 40-man roster, Hutchison still may rank near the top of the list for a promotion to the big club if Toronto's rotation depth is tested as the season unfolds....

Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Reassigned to minor-league camp
Hutchison (oblique) was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Blue Jays on Monday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.
Hutchison probably wasn't going to crack the Opening Day roster anyway, but an oblique injury ended any chances of that. He'll try to get healthy and get on track at Triple-A Buffalo.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Hoping for mound work soon
Hutchison (oblique) is aiming to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Working his way back from left oblique tightness, Hutchison did some light throwing Sunday and is slated to long-toss from 120 feet Monday. The veteran right-hander probably won't be ready in time for Opening Day, but he seemed to be a long shot to make the roster, anyway.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Drew Hutchison: Will miss next start
Hutchison (oblique) will miss his next start, but the club is hopeful he won't be sidelined long term, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
An MRI showed no structural damage, and while he will not make his regularly scheduled start, which would have been Sunday or Monday, it sounds like his absence will be a matter of weeks, not months. Hutchison will serve as organizational rotation depth this season and is unlikely to make the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Removed from 40-man roster
Hutchison was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Tuesday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
After turning in one of the better campaigns of his career in 2022 -- a 4.53 ERA and 1.48 WHIP -- Hutchison finds himself on waivers nonetheless. The decision to DFA him comes after the Tigers claimed Jermaine Palacios off waivers from Minnesota. Should Hutchison clear waivers, it's possible he may elect to test the free-agent market this offseason and sign elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Strikes out five in no-decision
Hutchison gave up two earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings in a 3-2 victory over the Twins on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.
Hutchison threw 103 pitches in his 18th and final start of the year but could not make it out of the fifth inning. The 32-year-old right-hander had a rough end to his season, posting a poor 6.20 ERA in five September starts leading up to this matchup with the Tigers. Hutchison logged 105.1 innings in 2022, the most in any season since he was a starter with Toronto in 2015. He finishes the year with a 4.53 ERA and 1.48 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Picks up third win
Hutchison (3-9) earned the win against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one batter over five innings.
Hutchison was far from dominant in the start -- he induced only six swinging strikes and fanned just one batter -- but he hung around long enough to earn his first victory in September. The right-hander gave up a pair of solo homers and a double among the four hits he allowed, yet he held Chicago to just two runs. Hutchison has struggled with a 4.54 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 101 innings this season, and his 14.7 percent strikeout rate ranks in the bottom five percent leaguewide.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Hit hard in loss
Hutchison (2-9) allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four in 4.2 innings to take the loss during Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Hutchison allowed just two runs over the first four innings of Sunday's matchup but struggled in the top of the fifth inning. He loaded the bases before giving up a run by walking Gavin Sheets with two outs. He was removed from the game afterward, and Jason Foley gave up a grand slam to the next batter. Hutchison has now given up at least two runs in each of his last five outings, and he's been charged with back-to-back losses. The right-hander tentatively lines up for a rematch with the White Sox on the road Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Struggles against lefties

He's allowed six homers in his last four starts, spanning 20.1 innings.

Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Lasts four innings Wednesday
Hutchison allowed two runs on five hits across four innings and did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's game against the Angels. He walked two and struck out three.
Hutchison wasn't particularly efficient, as he needed 84 pitches to last four innings, and that was enough for manager A.J. Hinch. The righty had gone five innings or more in his previous seven appearances. Hutchison still did a decent job of limiting runs in the shorter outing, and the veteran has a solid 3.47 ERA since the beginning of August. He's scheduled to start again Tuesday against a potent Houston offense.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Coughs up four runs
Hutchison yielded four runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk over 5.1 innings against the Royals on Friday. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
Hutchison allowed two runs through five innings before Michael Taylor tagged him with a two-run shot in the sixth during Detroit's victory. The veteran righty had allowed two or fewer runs in three straight outings to close out August. He's now sporting a 4.06 ERA with a 53:34 K:BB through 81.2 innings this season. Hutchison is projected to face the Angels on the road next week.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Strong outing in win

Hutchison cruised through the first five innings Sunday, scattering two hits and two walks while holding the Rangers scoreless. After retiring the first batter in the sixth, he allowed back-to-back homers to Corey Seager and Nathaniel Lowe and then walked a batter before being removed. It was his second win of the season and first since July 5. Over his last 10 starts, the 32-year-old has posted a 3.63 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 31:18 K:BB in 51 innings. His next start will likely be next weekend against Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Takes tough-luck loss Tuesday
Hutchison (1-7) allowed just one run on four hits across five innings but took the loss Tuesday against the Giants. He walked two and struck out three.
Hutchison pitched well, but he left the game with the Tigers trailing 1-0 against San Francisco ace Carlos Rodon, and then Daniel Norris allowed two more runs to score as the Giants would go on to win 3-1. Hutchison has allowed one run in his last two outings, though neither resulted in a win, and the righty is in fact winless since July 5. He's pitched decently with a 4.06 ERA this season, but Detroit's offense isn't doing any favors to the pitching staff. Hutchison will look to end his winless streak in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Turns in decent outing
Hutchison allowed one run on seven hits and one walk while striking out four over 5.1 innings in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians. He didn't factor into the decision.
Hutchison dealt with plenty of traffic on the bases, but he tossed four scoreless frames to begin his start before allowing an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. The right-hander had suffered two consecutive losses entering Monday's start, but he's been keeping his team in the game of late, surrendering three or fewer runs in four straight outings, which Monday's appearance....

Hutchison (1-6) allowed three runs on eight hits across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Guardians. He walked one and struck out three.
Hutchison allowed three runs across the first two innings but then settled down to fire three scoreless frames before exiting. However, the Tigers mustered only two runs against Cleveland starter Aaron Civale and six relievers. Hutchison has pitched decently with a 4.45 ERA, though his record reflects the small margin of error any Detroit pitcher has right now with a struggling offense behind them. The veteran righty is scheduled to take the hill again Monday against this same Cleveland squad.... See More ... See Less
