BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Hutchison has the inside track for the rotation in Toronto , Is he Meh or is there any upside left ? Cheers Mike.
(boatman44 from Liverpool)
He's meh for me, and with Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman beating down the door, he's more of a capable AL-only fill in than a guy I'd gamble on in a deeper mixed. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there a place for Drew Hutchison in the Blue Jay's 2014 rotation?
(Paul from DC)
yes but can he grab it is the question. Could be a competitive spring. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)I play in a 20 Team Strat-o-matic League and we are allowed 3 'uncarded' slots on our 40 man rosters for players with no MLB experience the previous season. Last Strat season I had Toronto pitcher Drew Hutchison on my roster. He didn't make it back to Toronto in the 2013 MLB season after 2012 TJ surgery. Is he worth one of my 3 'uncarded' roster spots?
(Paul from DC)
Without knowing the alternatives it's hard to say, but if Hutchinson gets healthy he has the chance to be a middle-of-the-rotation starter. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on some guys coming back from TJ surgery: Joe Wieland, Drew Hutchison. Do you like them for 2013, 2014 ?
(tbwhite from San Diego)
I prefer Wieland, though we gotta wait on both. I really think Wieland can be a solid fantasy asset thanks to half of his games being in Petco (in addition to some real talent). (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please say something nice about Joe Wieland and/or Drew Hutchison, I'm trying to move them....
(tbwhite from San Diego)
#1 and #2 on the top 100 next year FOR SURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Paul Sporer)
2012-08-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Regarding players that may or may not qualify for prospect lists: does any time in the show disqualify one from inclusion? Trevor Bauer? Joe Weiland/ Drew Hutchison?
(Breakables from Chicago)
Standard ROY rules, so 130 AB/50 innings. (Kevin Goldstein)
