Drew Hutchinson (SP, TOR) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Shawn Caswell - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in deeper leagues

ANALYSIS: Hutchinson is pitching admirably early on for the Blue Jays. He's boasting an above average K rate of 11.4% with 33 punch-outs over 26 IP and just nine free passes issued. Hutchinson has struck out nine in both of his last two outings and is gaining steam for the Jays. He's got an average fastball topping out at around 91 mph, but he possesses the ability to keep hitters off balance. These factors plus his slightly unlucky .368 BABIP could mean sneaky fantasy value. His secondary offerings, the changeup and slider are average pitches and his whiff rate on the fastball could very well revert back to league average which makes him only viable in deeper leagues for now. Keep an eye on his progress and if you need help in deeper leagues I would not hesitate to add him to your roster.
