Cubs' Jason Hammel goes seven strong in no-decision
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel put together another dominant outing but was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night against the Padres.
Hammel allowed a run-scoring single to Yangervis Solarte in the fifth and another run-scoring single to Will Venable in the seventh for his only blemishes of the evening. He was charged with two runs -- none earned -- on three hits and no walks while striking out eight over seven innings of a 4-3 defeat. Of his 106 pitches, 76 were strikes.
Hammel has lowered his ERA from 5.19 to 2.70 on the year over his last five starts. He'll look for win No. 4 on Sunday at Arizona.

|(5/13/15) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel allowed only one run in eight innings during a no-decision effort in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over the Mets.

Hammel's next start is projected for May 19 against the Padres.

|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings of work to earn his third win of the season during Friday's 7-6 win over the Brewers.
Hammel struck out eight batters and walked three during the outing. His biggest mistake was serving up a solo home run to Khris Davis in the sixth inning. The eight strikeouts were a season high for Hammel.
Hammel (3-1) has not allowed more than three runs in five of his six starts this season and his ERA now stands at 3.52. His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Mets.
Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel not expected to miss start
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel is not expected to miss a start this week after being bothered by a cracked nail on his middle finger during Sunday's game.
Hammel allowed three runs on five hits in his start on Sunday against the Brewers, but did not factor into the final decision. He currently boasts a 3.73 ERA in 37 1/3 innings of work this season.
Cubs' Jason Hammel delivers quality start vs. Brewers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel wasn't a factor in the decision Sunday, allowing three earned runs on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out four in his team's 5-3 loss to the Brewers.
Hammel served up a solo home run in the second inning and followed it up by giving up a run in the third and another in the fourth, but his offense was able to bail him out by scoring two runs in the fifth. It's the second straight quality start of the season for Hammel, who has allowed three earned runs or less in four of his five starts.
"My feel wasn't there," Hammel said to MLB.com. "Today was a battle, grind it out, and try to keep it close. ... I kept us in it but it could've been a lot better."
Hammel owns a 3.73 ERA and 27:2 K:BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. He'll square off with the Brewers again Saturday, this time in Milwaukee.
|2014 summary: Jason Hammel may have overstayed his welcome with the Rockies and the Orioles, falling flat after some initial successes with those clubs, but the Cubs didn't give him the opportunity to do the same with them. Before getting traded at midseason to the Athletics, Hammel gave the Cubs a strong 17-start run, during which he went 8-5 with a 2.98 ERA. Then he got off to a poor start with Oakland, posting a 9.53 ERA in his first four starts after getting traded. However, he did finish his stint there on a positive note, delivering five quality starts in his final seven tries. The Cubs signed Hammel this offseason to a two-year deal, so the possibility still looms for a letdown in Wrigleyville.|
Playing time status: Hammel is neither efficient nor durable, so while his place in the Cubs' rotation should be secure, he does not figure to be a big innings eater.
2015 outlook: Seemingly every season, Hammel profiles as a different type of pitcher, but he clearly offers some strikeout potential. Hammel also offers the downside of erratic control and a tendency to allow extra-base hits, so he is a late-round option at best in standard mixed leagues.
