Blue Jays lose a third starter as Drew Hutchison leaves game with sore elbow

Saturday June 16th, 2012

It has not been a week to remember for the Toronto Blue Jays, specifically for members of their starting rotation. On Tuesday righthander Brandon Morrow was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique. On Friday morning righty Kyle Drabek was placed on the 15-day DL with a ligament tear in his pitching elbow.

And now on Friday evening, 21-year-old rookie righty Drew Hutchison had to leave his start against the Philadelphia Phillies after just two batters and nine pitches. Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star reports that Hutchison had elbow soreness.
