TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays placed right-hander Drew Hutchison on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a right elbow UCL sprain.

The 21-year-old rookie left Friday night's 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies after just nine pitches.

Hutchison, who has a 5-3 record with a 4.60 earned-run average in 11 starts, is the third Toronto starting pitcher to go down in five days.

The Blue Jays said on Friday that an MRI revealed right-hander Kyle Drabek has a torn ligament in his elbow that may require surgery. Drabek left in the fifth inning of Toronto's 6-2 loss to Washington on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, right-hander Brandon Morrow left Monday's 6-3 loss to the Nationals after just nine pitches with a strained oblique muscle in his left side. He's also on the 15-day DL.

The Jays recalled Robert Coello from triple-A Las Vegas to take Hutchison's spot on the roster.

The 27-year-old spent time with the Jays earlier this month, holding the Boston Red Sox to three hits and no runs in two innings of work back on June 1.
