Jason Hammel settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Athletics pitcher Jason Hammel pitched well in a no-decision Thursday night against the Rangers in Alrlington. Making his final start of the regular season, he allowed one run on five hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings of a 2-1 victory.

Hammel ends his 2014 campaign 10-11 with a 3.47 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 176 1/3 innings of work. Hammel will get a chance to pitch in the postseason, if the A's advance past the AL Wild Card Game.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics reorganize starting rotation


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) 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
(9/7/2014) 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
(9/1/2014) 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 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.

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

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.

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 R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

Cubs, A's complete mega-deal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) The Cubs and Athletics have completed a mega-deal which will send pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for shortstop Addison Russell .

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.
