1BJW Interview: Drew Hutchison


One of the fastest rising prospects across the minor leagues this season was Toronto's Drew Hutchison. The right-handed hurler began the 2011 season with the Class A Lansing Lugnuts and swiftly moved up two levels, landing with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats in August.

Combined at three levels this season, Hutchison posted a 14-5 record with a 2.53 ERA and a .220 batting average against.

Despite helping the Fisher Cats reach the Eastern League finals, which they eventually won, Hutchison, who threw 149 1/3 innings during the regular season, was shut down before the championship round. He was re-assigned to Dunedin, at that point, but stayed with New Hampshire as the team defeated Richmond 3 games to 1 to win its second ever EL title.

The Florida native was a 15th round draft pick in 2009. Hutchison, who stands 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds, is expected to begin next season back with the Fisher Cats.

Prior to the postseason, I spoke with Drew about his pitch repertoire, his successful season and plenty more. Check out the media player below to hear the full interview.
