Tuesday night, the Toronto Blue Jays and Drew Hutchison will take on the Detroit Tigers and Anibal Sanchez. Hutchison will make his 12th start as Sanchez makes his 9th.
Drew Hutchison picked up his 3rd straight win in his last start and that boosted his record to 4 – 3 with a 3.88 ERA. In that outing, Hutchison gave up 5 runs on 7 hits (including 3 homers) in just 5 innings. He walked 4 without a strikeout, but his offense bailed him out of an almost certain loss. Hutchison is pitching his first season after missing all of last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
Hutchison didn’t face the Tigers in 2012 and has only faced one of Detroit’s batters in his career. Ian Kinsler is 1 of 4 with a double and 3 RBIs against the young right-hander.
Anibal Sanchez pitched to a no-decision in his last outing despite a solid start. His record stayed at 2 - 2 with a 2.49 ERA after he surrendered just a run on 3 hits in 8.1 innings of work. Sanchez walked 1 while striking out 9. Last season, Sanchez was 14 – 8 with a 2.57 ERA in 29 starts.
In 2013, Sanchez won his only start against the Blue Jays after allowing 2 runs on 5 hits in 7 innings of work. Sanchez might want to pitch around to Melky Cabrera because Cabrera is 10 of 18 with an RBI against the right-hander.
