|Drew Pomeranz to fill in for Jason Hammel Saturday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/16/14) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel will miss Saturday's scheduled start due to the birth of his second child, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Drew Pomeranz will make a spot start in his place.
|Athletics reorganize starting rotation |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/15/14) To better align their starting rotation for the end of the season, the Athletics have decided to push Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel back a day and move Scott Kazmir and Sonny Gray up a day. Kazmir will now start the first game of a three-game series against the Rangers Tuesday, followed by Samardzija and Gray. Hammel will start the first game of a three-game series against the Phillies Friday, followed by Jon Lester.
The move allows the Athletics to start Gray on the final day of the regular season rather than Hammel.
|Jason Hammel takes the loss Friday in Seattle |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/13/14) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel took the loss Friday night against the Mariners in Seattle, dropping to 10-11 on the season. The right-hander permitted three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings of a 4-2 defeat.
Over his last two starts covering 11 2/3 innings, Hammel has allowed five earned runs. He owns a 3.60 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP over 28 starts (167 1/3 innings). His next start will come Thursday at home against Texas.
|Jason Hammel continues surge Sunday with strong outing |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/7/14) Right-hander Jason Hammel continued to pitch better Sunday for the Athletics after a rotten stretch upon his acquisition from the Cubs.
Hammel yielded two runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings against Houston. He walked one and fanned seven. He pitched six shutout innings before the Astros scored twice to take a 2-1 lead. Hammel has allowed just four runs in his last 21 2/3 innings, but is just 2-7 since arriving in Oakland.
He will try to make it 3-7 in a key game Friday in Seattle.
|Jason Hammel twirls eight one-run innings Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel earned a win Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 victory over the Mariners.
Hammel (10-10) gave up just three hits in an outing for the second straight start, and like in his previous game, gave up a solo home run for the opposition's only scoring on the starter. He owns a 3.58 ERA and 136:42 K:BB ratio in 155 2/3 innings. Hammel is scheduled to face the Astros Sunday.
|Jason Hammel took a step backward from his promising 2012 campaign last year, watching his ERA (3.43 in 2012; 4.97 in 2013), WHIP (1.24 to 1.46), and hit rate (7.9 H/9 to 10.0 H/9) all rise. His strikeout rate -- which was a career-best 8.6 in 2012, came back to his career norm, settling in at 6.2 K/9 last season. Hammel now has seven seasons with an ERA of above 4.30, with just that one 2012 season dipping below the 4.00 mark. Hammel did miss some time in 2013 with an injured forearm/flexor strain, suggesting he may have been pitching through pain (he received a cortisone injection) for a good amount of the season. But that doesn't bode especially well for 2014, as the pain could carry over. Hammel showed some promise in 2012, but between the inflated ratios and injury last season, he can be left undrafted in most mixed league formats, and should be taken cautiously in single-league drafts
