The latest Jason Hammel MLB and fantasy baseball news
Fri, 17 May 2013 20:25:24 -0700
Baltimore Orioles SP Jason Hammel allowed season-highs of seven runs and 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss Friday, May 17, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He also gave up two walks with four strikeouts, posting 58 strikes on 99 pitches.
Fantasy Tip: Hammel has allowed 13 runs and 18 hits over the past two starts. Until he gets back into a groove, he isn't even worth using in AL-only fantasy formats.

Baltimore Orioles SP Jair Jurrjens could be called up from Triple-A Norfolk to join the rotation with SPs Miguel Gonzalez (thumb) and Wei-Yin Chen (oblique) injured. Jurrjens allowed five runs and seven hits while walking none and striking out six in seven innings for Norfolk Monday, May 13. Manager Buck Showalter is deciding between SPs Freddy Garcia and Jason Hammel for Wednesday, May 15, against the San Diego Padres. Chen could start Saturday, May 18, but SP Steven Johnson could be recalled if Chen needs to go on the disabled list. Jurrjens could opt out of his contract June 15.
Fantasy Tip: 2012 was an atrocious season for Jurrjens, and his injuries didn't help him at all. Baltimore may decide to opt for Jurrjens over Johnson if they need an extra starter because of Jurrjen's opt out date approaching. Jurrjens hasn't impressed in the minors, though, so don't expect much from him if he's recalled. He'll strictly be AL-only rotation fodder if you're desperate.

Baltimore Orioles SP Jason Hammel (knees) declared himself fully healthy after tossing two scoreless innings Friday, March 1, striking out two. "I made a goal for me in the offseason to be able to come out and pitch without a brace," said Hammel, who had a right knee injury - and surgery - that hampered him nearly all of last season. "So, check that one off the list." Hammel is a candidate to be the team's opening day starter.
