Description: Cubs starter Jason Hammel allowed just two unearned runs in the, 4-3, loss to the Padres on Tuesday.
Insight: Hammel only allowed three hits, struck out eight and didn't walk a batter, but the two unearned runs led to a no-decision. Hammel is 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings this season.
 
5/3/2015 4:17:00 PM

9/1/2014 6:39:00 PM

Insight: Hammel has given up six hits and two runs in his last 15 innings, but he still has a 4.98 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, a 32/19 K/BB and a 2.11 HR/9 in 47 innings since he joined Oakland.
 
Cold8/19/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Jason Hammel's next turn through the rotation will be skipped, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. The Athletics have an important series against the Angels this weekend and cannot afford to run Hammel out there. Sonny Gray, Jon Lester and Scott Kazmir will start.
Insight: Hammel has gone 1-5 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP in seven starts since the A's acquired him from the Cubs. He's posted a 21/17 K/BB and given up a whopping nine home runs in that span. He was scheduled to start Friday against Hector Santiago.
 
Cold8/15/2014 10:38:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Jason Hammel allowed five runs on six hits (3 HR) in three innings Friday night at Atlanta.
Insight: Hammel is now 1-5 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP in seven starts since the A's acquired him from the Cubs. He's posted a 21/17 K/BB and given up a whopping nine home runs in that span.
 
8/10/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Jason Hammel gave up one run on four hits in 6 1/3 innings Sunday against Minnesota.
Insight: Hammel went 0-4 with a 9.53 ERA and a 2.12 WHIP over 17 innings in his first four starts with Oakland before holding the Rays scoreless his last time out, which he did despite giving up 11 baserunners in 5 2/3 innings. He has a 19/16 K/BB in 29 innings with the A's and will remain a shaky option.
 
Cold7/30/2014 4:56:00 PM
Description: Jeff Samardzija has done pretty well in his transition to the AL, but Jason Hammel has been terrible since the two pitchers joined the Athletics in a trade from the Cubs.
Insight: Hammel allowed eight runs on seven hits (2 HR) over 4 1/3 innings Wednesday at Houston. In four starts with Oakland, he has gone 0-4 with a 9.53 ERA and a 2.12 WHIP in 17 innings. He was 8-5 with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP in 108 2/3 innings with Chicago.
 
7/5/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Right-hander Jason Hammel has been traded to Oakland along with Jeff Samardzija.
Insight: Hammel is 8-5 on the year with a smart 2.98 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and 104 Ks in 108 2/3 innings. It will be interesting to see who gets dropped from the A's already strong starting rotation.
 
Hot7/4/2014 8:53:00 PM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel has allowed two runs in each of his last three starts.
Insight: Hammel improved to 8-5 on the year after going six innings and striking out seven batters Friday. The right-hander has been terrific this season, posting a 2.98 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and 104 Ks in 108 2/3 innings. Along with teammate Jeff Samardzija, he's one of the top pitchers available on the trade market.
 
Cold6/27/2014 11:02:00 AM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel has a stellar 2.99 ERA this season, but he hasn't pitched particularly well of late.
Insight: Hammel (6-5, 2.99 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) owns an 0-2 record with a 5.00 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in his last three starts. Avoid him against the Nationals on Friday.
 
6/22/2014 5:39:00 PM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel gave up two runs on six hits in seven innings Sunday against the Pirates, but the Cubs scored just one run and Hammel dropped to 6-5.
Insight: Hammel (6-5, 2.99 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) will be out of Chicago soon, that's a given. However, his fantasy value would worsen if he's traded to an AL team, much like Ryan Dempster, Matt Garza and Scott Feldman in the previous two seasons.
 
6/6/2014 8:48:00 PM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel was in cruise control Friday against the Marlins.
Insight: He held Miami to six hits over seven shutout innings. The eight strikeouts Hammel registered tied a season-high. Unfortunately closer Hector Rondon squandered a three-run lead in the ninth inning, leaving Hammel (6-3, 2.53 ERA) with a no-decision.
 
5/31/2014 9:22:00 PM
Description: Chicago starter Jason Hammel registered eight punchouts Saturday in a win against Milwaukee.
Insight: He didn't let up a run in seven innings of work. Hammel has pitched like an All-Star this season, winning six of 11 starts with an ERA under three. His next start is Friday against the Marlins.
 
Hot5/9/2014 11:05:00 PM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel gave up two runs and had a 5/1 K/BB in seven innings Friday at Atlanta.
Insight: Hammel has enjoyed his return to the National League after a couple years in Baltimore. He has thrown at least six innings in all seven starts and is 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.
 
Hot4/27/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel didn't allow Milwaukee to score Sunday afternoon.
Insight: Hammel (4-1, 2.08 ERA, 0.69 WHIP) tossed seven innings, struck out seven and allowed just three hits. Like Scott Feldman last year, the Cubs brought Hammel in on a low-risk deal and he has worked out. If he keeps it up, they'll trade him prior to the deadline. Fantasy owners should prepare for some regression, however, because batters have hit just .138 on balls in play against Hammel this year.
 
4/23/2014 9:15:00 AM
Description: Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel was brilliant Tuesday in a win over Arizona.
Insight: Hammel (7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 4 K's, 0 BB) has been practically unhittable this year, limiting opponents to a .151 batting average over 27 2/3 innings. He has, however, been susceptible to giving up the long ball. In fact, five of the eight runs Hammel (3-1, 2.60 ERA) has allowed this season have come on round-trippers. His next start will be Sunday against Milwaukee.
 
1/31/2014 2:37:00 PM
Description: Righthander Jason Hammel has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal with the Cubs, according to Fox's Ken Rosenthal.
Insight: Hammel, who was 7-8 with a 4.97 ERA in 26 appearances last year, will need to return to 2012 form if he wants to have any fantasy value. The wins will come tougher without Chris Davis, Adam Jones and Manny Machado around to give him run support.
 
9/6/2013 6:09:00 PM
Description: Baltimore righthander Jason Hammel will be used out of the bullpen until further notice. SOURCE: Baltimore Sun
Insight: Obviously, it's a huge hit to his fantasy value. Hammel, who is 7-8 with a 5.20 ERA in 21 starts this year, hasn't made a relief appearance since 2011.
