News: Hutchison agreed to a one-year, $2.2 million deal with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.
Impact: As things stand, Hutchison will be competing with Jesse Chavez for the final spot in the Blue Jays rotation in spring training. A popular breakout candidate in 2015, Hutchison was abjectly bad in almost every sense, posting a 19.4 percent K-rate (his lowest mark since 2012) and a 4.42 FIP. Even if he gets luckier than he did last year (5.57 ERA), it's buyer beware until Hutchison can tap into his potential for a prolonged stretch of starts.
