Drew Hutchison- New York Yankees

Drew Hutchison will suit up for his fifth MLB organization in 2019 when the hurler takes the ball for the New York Yankees. Hutchison spent parts of four seasons with the Blue Jays before he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for Francisco Liriano, Harold Ramirez, and Reese McGuire in 2016.

The former 15th round pick made 76 appearances with the Blue Jays going 30-21 with a 4.92 earned run average and a 0.4 WAR during his tenure with Toronto. Hutchison still has not yet been able to live up to the expectations of once being the Blue Jays opening day starter.

Ironically that opening day start in 2015 was versus the Yankees and Hutchison reigned victorious over Masahiro Tanaka beating New York 6-1.

Last season, Hutchison spent time with the Phillies and Rangers going 2-2 with an inflated 6.75 earned run average in 16 appearances. He will surely begin the 2019 campaign in Triple-A for the Yankees and provide rotational depth in the event New York runs into injury troubles.
