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.


Jason Hammel records just six outs in loss Saturday


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.


Jason Hammel takes loss in Athletics debut Wednesday


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. He didn't come out for the six after throwing 99 pitches in the first five frames. Hammel owns a 3.01 ERA and 107:26 K:BB ratio in 113 2/3 innings going into the break.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.  


Report: A's, Cubs complete blockbuster deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) According to a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Athletics have acquired pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs for shortstop prospect Addison Russell

According to ESPN's Keith Law, the Cubs will receive outfielder Billy McKinney, pitcher Dan Straily and a player to be named later.

Report: Cubs, A's in 'serious' talks on blockbuster deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) The Cubs have engaged in serious talks with the Athletics on a potential deal involving pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, FOX Sports reports Friday.

The Cubs have been unable to lock Samardzija down with an extension and are listening to offers leading up to the July 31 trade deadline. Samardzija is 2-7 with a 2.83 ERA over 17 starts (108 innings). Hammel is 8-5 with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 17 starts (108 2/3 innings).

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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Cubs starter Jason Hammel expressed disappointment Friday after being limited to 92 pitches and six innings in a win at Washington.

"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."

The reason could be that the team wants to save him to make him more attractive to possible trade suitors. Hammel is considered to be prime trade bait as the deadline approaches.


Jason Hammel a winner on July 4 in nation's capital


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel won his second straight start Friday after two losses and two no-decisions. He shut down host Washington on two runs in six innings before being removed after throwing just 92 pitches.

Hammel yielded a home run to Jayson Werth in the first inning before settling down. He finished having surrendered five hits with two walks and seven strikeouts as he raised his record to 7-5. He will try to make it 8-5 in Cincinnati on Wednesday.


Jason Hammel snaps winless streak


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel tossed his second quality start in a row Friday against the Nationals, and actually had something to shot for it this time, in a 7-2 win.

Hammel tossed 6 1/3 solid innings in the game, allowing two runs on five hits. He got plenty of help, however, and left with his first win in five starts, while striking out six batters on 101 pitches.

Hammel snapped his four-start winless streak with the win, and is now 7-5 in 16 starts. He has a 2.98 ERA heading into his next start, set for Friday in Washington. 


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. 


Jason Hammel Ks nine in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel struck out nine but was unable to factor into the decision Monday night against the Marlins in Miami. The right-hander permitted four runs on eight hits and one hit over six innings of work.

Of his 90 pitches, 68 were strikes. Hammel owns a 3.02 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP through 14 starts (89 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Sunday at home against Pittsburgh.

Cubs already discussing Jeff Samardzija, Jason Hammel deals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) The Cubs are already discussing trades involving Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

The Braves, Mariners and Blue Jays have all shown interest in both players. Seattle is also believed to be a player, particularly for Hammel. The club is expected to entertain deals for both players around the trade deadline, so it's not a surprise to see the trade rumors are already starting.


Last start no reason to lose faith in Jason Hammel


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) I had only recently come around to Jason Hammel, bumping him up to 68th in my starting pitcher rankings (which is basically must-own) at last update. No chance I'm backing off after one rocky start. And neither should you.

What if you had when he allowed five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings at St. Louis May 15? What about when he followed it up with two more less-than-quality starts, pitching 5 2/3 innings in each? You would have missed him pitching seven shutout innings in his next two starts, which affirmed, at least to me, that he's here to stay.

Which isn't to say he won't regress at all. If I honestly expected him to finish with a 2.81 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings, I wouldn't rank him only 68. For his numbers to normalize, he'll need to have occasional starts like Wednesday's.

But consider where he fell short exactly. He didn't issue a bunch of walks, which has been the biggest key to his success far. He still struck out six in nine innings. He gave up 11 hits, sure, but that happens from time to time for pitchers who throw as many strikes as he does and isn't necessarily a reflection of how well he pitched. If it continues, it's a problem, but after one start, it's no reason to sound the alarm.


Jason Hammel gives up four runs in loss vs. Pirates


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel was charged with a loss Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on 11 hits and two walks in five innings while striking out six in his team's 4-2 defeat against the Pirates.

Hammel (6-4) was coming off back-to-back scoreless performances before struggling through his second start with more than three earned runs this season. Even with the mediocre outing, he still owns a 2.81 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 76:18 K:BB ratio in 83 1/3 innings. Hammel is slated to face the Marlins Monday.


Jason Hammel tosses seven shutout frames in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Cubs starter Jason Hammel turned in his second dominant performance in a row Friday against the Marlins, though he had to settle for a no-decision as the game went into extra innings.  

Hammel nearly matched his last outing, as he tossed seven shutout innings yet again. He allowed six hits and a walk in the game, but struck out eight batters on 99 pitches before leaving with a lead intact.

The bullpen could not make Hammel's lead stand up, as he settled for a no-decision despite the shutout. He did lower his ERA to 2.53 in 78 1/3 innings of work, while his record stays at 6-3. He will put his shutout streak on the line in his next outing, set for Wednesday in Pittsburgh. 


Jason Hammel suffers third loss Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel (5-3) turned in a decent outing on Sunday but was charged with the loss in a 4-3 defeat to the Padres in San Diego. The right-hander permitted three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five in 5 2/3 innings.

Over his last three starts covering 16 2/3 innings, Hammel has yielded nine earned runs. He owns a 3.08 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP in 10 starts (64 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at Milwaukee.

Jason Hammel good to go for Sunday start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel will make his scheduled start Sunday against the Padres.

Hammel suffered a deep bone bruise after getting hit in the hand by a line drive Tuesday, but he expressed certainty he would make Sunday's start. He is 5-2 with a 2.91 ERA and 49:13 K:BB ratio in 58 2/3 innings.

Jason Hammel not concerned about trade rumors


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel isn't worried about trade rumors, according to MLB.com.

Hammel is well aware of the team's tendency to flip veterans for prospects at the trade deadline, but he's only concerned about his current status. "I could care less," Hammel said. "I’m wearing blue pinstripes right now and I’m excited to be here. I don’t think about that kind of stuff." 

He added that he's happy to be in Chicago now, and just wants to win games with the team. "For right now, that’s all that matters to me," he said.

Hammel has a 2.91 ERA over 58 2/3 innings.


Jason Hammel picks up win No. 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Cubs starting pitcher Jason Hammel was much improved in his start against the Yankees Tuesday, as he earned his fifth win of the season.

Hammel limited the Yankees to just one run, but fell one out shot of a quality start. He scattered four hits and a walk in his five-plus innings, and was chased after allowing a pair of two-out hits in the sixth inning, having thrown a season-low 92 pitches. Hammel struck out six batters in the outing.

Hammel is now 5-2 in nine starts, while posting a 2.91 ERA in 58 2/3 innings of work. His next start is set for Sunday in San Diego. 


Cubs announce minor rotation change for next week


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) The Cubs are adjusting their schedule for the upcoming turn in order to keep Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija on a five-day schedule.

With Monday's off day, the Cubs are moving Jake Arrieta back to Thursday's game against the Padres, in order to give him extra time to work on his mechanics, according to MLB.com. The move also allows Hammel and Samardzija to remain on schedule, as they will not pitch Tuesday and Wednesday against the Yankees, respectively.


Jason Hammel ends run of fine starts with dud in St. Louis


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Cubs starter Jason Hammel had racked up nothing but quality starts this season - until Thursday.

Hammel suffered through his shortest and worst outing of the year against the Cardinals. He was doomed by a four-run second inning in which he gave up two walks and three hits, including a key two-run single by opposing pitcher Michael Wacha.

The right-hander recovered to pitch three shutout innings before a double and single knocked him out in the sixth. Hammel, whose ERA rose from 2.45 to 3.06, will make his next start Tuesday against the Yankees.
