Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison pulled early with sore elbow

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison throws to an Atlanta Braves batter in the first inning at their Inter -League baseball game at Turner Field in Atlanta, Georgia June 9, 2012.


The Toronto Blue Jays had their third pitcher be forced from a start by injury this week when right-hander Drew Hutchison left Friday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies during the first inning.

Hutchison had retired two batters with nine pitches when he left the game with a sore right elbow after a visit from manager John Farrell and a trainer.

Left-hander Aaron Laffey took his place.
