RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hutchison returned from Tommy John surgery with what can only be considered a resounding success. Donít let the ERA fool you. He had some rough spots, but the bulk of his season was fantastic. He had a severe home/road split favoring the road to start the season only to flip halfway through, and he started getting shellacked away from Toronto. By seasonís end, the split was virtually nonexistent, so there is no need to read into any of it. He had some rough spots (nine starts of five-plus ER), but he also had runs of dominance, including his final seven starts during which he had a 3.32 ERA in 41 innings with 57 strikeouts and a 4.4 K/BB ratio. His swinging strike rate (11%) was 14th among qualified starters, giving his 23.4% strikeout rate credibility. On the downside, he has a sharp platoon split that does deserve attention as his changeup allowed seven of his 23 homers. He needs to refine both his fastball and changeup against lefties to cut down the .811 OPS allowed against southpaws (righties were at .615). This is a growth profile worth buying.
Hutchison spent most of 2013 rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, before working his way up through the minors late in the season. He never reached the majors and struggled from an ERA perspective in the minors, but Hutchison did strike out 42 batters over 35.1 innings across three levels. Given that he produced a respectable 4.60 ERA in 11 starts with the Blue Jays during the 2012 season, Hutchison could be a candidate for the 2014 starting rotation, even though he hasn't spent significant time at any level of the minors above High-A ball. Still just 23 years old, Hutchison remains one of the better young pitchers in the Toronto organization, despite missing more than a year following Tommy John surgery.
Hutchison became a surprise callup for the Jays when the need for a starter arose in April. As a 21-year-old with just six career starts at Double-A, he fared reasonably well with a 7.5 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 over 11 starts before elbow trouble sent him to the disabled list in June. The initial diagnosis required a shutdown period, but it was determined in early August that he needed to undergo Tommy John surgery. As a result of the delay, Hutchison will likely miss a significant portion of the 2013 season while rehabbing his way back.
