Cubs | Jason Hammel solid of late

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:11:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his last six starts, and he has a 3.59 ERA in his last 11 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) is a fine option in daily leagues while he's pitching well, and he's worth a look tonight on FantasyScore against the Detroit Tigers, even with Miguel Cabrera back from the DL.

Cubs | Jason Hammel gives Brewers trouble

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:41:38 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel is 7-0 with a 2.18 ERA in nine career starts against the Milwaukee Brewers, who he faces Wednesday, Aug. 12. Hammel is 2-0 against them with a 2.89 ERA in three starts in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) is lined up as a great play for one of your two starting pitching spots on FantasyScore tonight. The Brewers have struggled offensively for much of the season, and Hammel should continue to have little problem setting them down.

Cubs | Jon Lester starting Friday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 17:03:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester will make his next start against the San Francisco Giants at home Friday, Aug. 7, after having his start rained out Monday, Aug. 3. SP Dan Haren is going against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his debut with the team Wednesday, Aug. 5, and SP Jason Hammel will go against the Giants Thursday, Aug. 6. SP Kyle Hendricks will be pushed back a day to Saturday, Aug. 8, while SP Jake Arrieta will pitch on normal rest Sunday, Aug. 9. Lester threw only 31 pitches Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Lester ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) threw some before the game was canceled Monday shouldn't make you hesitant to use him Friday on FantasyScore. However, the Gigantes have the third-best OPS in the league (.766) on the road this year, meaning you may want to save Lester for another day.

Cubs | Jason Hammel spins another solid game

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 20:47:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel struck out six batters through 7 2/3 scoreless innings while allowing two hits and two walks during the Cubs' 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday, June 23. Hammel did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) currently sports a 2.65 ERA, 3.03 FIP and 0.94 WHIP with 92 strikeouts over 91 2/3 innings this season. The veteran righty has only allowed more than three earned runs in just two of his 14 starts this season.
