Drew Hutchison’s start pushed back again

With a few hours to spare ahead of tonight’s game between the Blue Jays and Mariners, the Mariners’ PR Twitter reports that the Jays have pushed back Drew Hutchison’s start again. Instead, Marco Estrada will take the hill.

Hutchison was supposed to start against the Athletics on Thursday, but he was pushed back to Friday due to flulike symptoms. He still isn’t well enough to pitch, so the hope is he’ll take the mound on Saturday at Safeco Field. The right-hander has a 9-2 record despite a 5.19 ERA.
