Jason Hammel has strong start ruined by pen


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel had his strong start ruined by the bullpen Tuesday.

Hammel gave up one run on three hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Hammel’s only run came in the fourth inning. Dexter Fowler led things off by taking a pitch deep to right field for the solo shot. Hammel gave up just one walk the rest of the game. He set down the last 10 Astros he faced.

Hammel left the game with a one-run lead, but the bullpen couldn’t hold it. Because of that, Hammel came away with a no-decision. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start.


Report: Athletics considered ousting Jason Hammel from rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) The Athletics considered permanently removing Jason Hammel from the rotation before deciding to just skip his next turn, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Hammel who will pitch against Houston next week, has been a mess since arriving in Oakland via a trade from the Cubs. His ERA has leaped from 2.98 to 3.84, courtesy of 24 earned runs allowed in 32 innings pitched covering seven outings. He has just one quality start during that stretch.

The right-hander has blamed mechanical issues that are leaving his pitches up for his struggles, but adds that it should be an easy fix. He is also claiming no problem with the temporary move to the bullpen.

"I'm not bothered by it," he said. "You've got to check your ego at the door when you're not getting it done."

The Athletics could place Jesse Chavez or Drew Pomeranz in their rotation if Hammel continues to get battered.


Athletics shake up weekend rotation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) The Athletics have altered their rotation for the weekend series against the Angels.

Jason Hammel will be skipped. He was slated to start Friday. The team will now go with Sonny Gray, Jon Lester and Scott Kazmir for the series. Gray will start Friday, Lester will start Saturday and Kazmir will go Sunday. 


Athletics to skip Jason Hammel's next start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) The Athletics will skip Jason Hammel's next start, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Hammel has struggled since joining the A's. In seven starts since joining the club, Hammel has posted a 6.75 ERA. Hammel was slated to start Friday against the Angels. 


Jason Hammel can't make it past the third inning


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel couldn't make it past the third inning Friday.

Hammel gave up five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two and walked one. Home runs proved to be a major issue for Hammel. He gave up two solo shots in the second inning, and then allowed a three-run blast the following inning. Home runs accounted for all five runs Hammel allowed. 

With the loss, Hammel dropped to 1-5 on the year. He'll take on the Angels in his next start. 


Jason Hammel unable to factor into decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel wasn't a factor into the decision Sunday afternoon at home against the Twins. The right-hander was on the wrong end of pitcher's duel as he permitted one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five over 6 1/3 innings of a 6-1 defeat.

Over his last two starts covering 12 innings, Hammel has allowed only one earned run. He owns a 3.60 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 23 starts (137 2/3 innings). His next start will come Friday in Atlanta.

Jason Hammel holds Rays scoreless in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel earned a win Tuesday, giving up seven hits and four walks in 5 2/3 scoreless innings and striking out two in his team's 3-0 victory over the Rays.

It's not often you see a pitcher give up about two runners per inning and put all zeroes on the board, but Hammel (9-9) was able to end a four-game losing streak with his new team thanks to multiple fielder's choices to nab the lead runner as well as multiple double plays. He owns a 3.70 ERA and 118:37 K:BB ratio in 131 1/3 innings. Hammel is scheduled to face the Twins Sunday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Jason Hammel to beat out Jesse Chavez for final rotation spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) After an interview with Athletics general manager Billy Beane, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports that Jason Hammel will likely stick as the fifth starter over Jesse Chavez.

Chavez owns a 3.44 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 119:41 K:BB ratio in 125 2/3 innings. Hammel has lost his first four decisions with his new club. He owns a 3.87 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP over 21 starts (125 2/3 innings).

A's 'flooded' with calls about Jason Hammel


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Athletics were not planning on moving recently acquired pitcher Jason Hammel before Thursday's trade deadline, but FOXSports.com reports they have been "flooded" with calls about his availability and could change their minds.

The Athletics acquired another starting pitcher prior to Thursday's deadline, which could leave Hammel as the odd-man out in the rotation.  Hammel hasn't helped his case in four starts with the A's, allowing 18 runs on 26 hits and 10 walks in 17 innings of work. 


Struggles continue Wednesday for Jason Hammel


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Jason Hammel has been a mess on the mound since joining the Athletics. That mess got worse Wednesday in Houston.

Hammel was bombed for six runs in the first inning and yielded eight in 4 1/3 to lower his record to 0-4 with Oakland. He surrendered seven hits, including home runs to Jon Singleton and Robbie Grossman, while walking three and fanning four.

The right-hander, who has allowed 16 runs and five taters in 16 innings since the deal, will attempt to turn it around Tuesday against Tampa Bay.


Jason Hammel drops one against the Rangers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel had a rough start Friday against the Rangers.

Hammel allowed four runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. Hammel first ran into trouble in the second inning. After giving up a double to open the inning, he gave up a run-scoring single to the next batter. He gave up an additional run in the third inning. 

Hammel was able to get through the fourth and fifth inning unscathed, but again ran into trouble in the sixth. Hammel gave up a single and walk to open the inning, before allowing a run-scoring single to Adrian Beltre. Jim Adduci added a sac fly, scoring the fourth run of the game. 

With the loss, Hammel dropped to 8-8 on the year. His next start will come against the Astros.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel took a loss in an abbreviated outing Saturday, giving up five earned runs on six hits and two walks in two-plus innings and striking out two in his team's 8-4 defeat against the Orioles.

Hammel (8-7) has lost both of his starts with his new team after coming over from the Cubs, and he was doomed from the start Saturday, serving up two home runs in the top of the first inning. He owns a 3.35 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 109:28 K:BB ratio in 115 2/3 innings. Hammel is slated to take on the Rangers Friday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jason Hammel will pitch the second game of the Baltimore series and Sonny Gray will finish off the three-game set. Scott Kazmir will then pitch the opener of a series against Houston July 22. He will be followed by Jesse Chavez before the rotation resets.


Jason Hammel feels fine after thumb cramp Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel said after Wednesday's game that his thumb felt fine after being looked at by a trainer during the game, MLB.com reports.

Hammel said that his thumb just cramped up and that it was the first time it had ever happened to him. He went on to finish the fifth inning after being visited by the trainer but didn't come out for the sixth with 99 pitches already in the bank. The minor issue shouldn't affect his availability moving forward.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel took the loss in his debut with his new team Wednesday, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks in five innings and striking out three in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Giants.

Hammel (8-6) seemed to suffer a thumb injury in the fifth inning but remained in to complete the inning after getting checked out by a trainer.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The two sides reached a deal Friday night, but waited to officially announce the move Saturday. Samardzija and Hammel will slot into the team's rotation, though it's unclear how soon they'll make their first start with their new club.

Russell joins the Cubs' solid collection of prospects. Chicago will also receive outfield prospect Billy McKinney, pitcher Dan Straily and a player to be named later. Of the bunch, only Straily is expected to play a role with the major-league club this season.

Jason Hammel has 'no idea' why he was removed early Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"I would have liked to have stayed out there for the seventh," he told the Chicago Tribune. "I have no idea why I came out of the game."

Jason Hammel wouldn't mind staying with the Cubs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) It seems almost inevitable Cubs starting pitcher Jason Hammel will be traded this summer since the Cubs are expected to be sellers at the July 31 trade deadline and free agency looms in the offseason for the veteran pitcher. Still, Hammel isn't ruling out re-signing with the Cubs after the season.

"I would assume they are pretty happy with my body of work so far and if a trade happens it happens," Hammel said, per ESPN. "But I guarantee, say I was to go to another team, I love it here. I guarantee you they wouldn't be opposed to bringing me back next year." 

Hammel added, however, there are no current contract talks with the Cubs.

"I'm open to it but nothing is happening," said Hammel, who will be 32 years old in September.
