Jason Hammel was handed a no-decision but pitched well, allowing one run in six innings, in Thursday's walk-off loss to the Rangers.

Eric O’Flaherty out, but A’s roster includes Hammel, Burns

From Chronicle staff writer Susan Slusser in Kansas City As I wrote in this morning’s Chronicle might be the case, left-handed reliever Eric O’Flaherty was left off today’s wild-card roster. He is coming back from Tommy John surgery and he wasn’t available during the series at Texas and it sounds as if his arm hasn’t been feeling quite as he’d like. Speedster Billy Burns is, as I’d thought, on the roster, as is starter Jason Hammel and starter/long man Drew Pomeranz, and Pomeranz is left-handed – he’s not a lefty-lefty specialist, since he’s usually a multiple-innings...

Hammel strong again in a no-decision vs. TEX - Jason Hammel (S) Oakland Athletics

Jason Hammel was handed a no-decision but pitched well, allowing one run in six innings, in Thursday's walk-off loss to the Rangers.

A’s Jason Hammel to miss start, Drew Pomeranz to fill in

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum Jason Hammel will leave for the birth of his second child after Thursday’s game and will miss his next start, The Chronicle has learned, so left-hander Drew Pomeranz will start on Saturday against the Phillies.

Pomeranz pitched very well in his one start in the second half, going 5 1/3 innings and allowed three hits and one run, not earned, at...

A’s set rotation, as expected, so Sonny Gray goes in Game 162

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Safeco Field The A’s have announced that Scott Kazmir, Jeff Samardzija and Sonny Gray will pitch against the Rangers this week, so Gray does move ahead of Jason Hammel and would be in line to start the final game of the regular season, as I had speculated yesterday. Kazmir jumps ahead of Samardzija in the rotation, a little unexpected – the left-handers , Jon Lester and Kazmir, wind up going back-to-back again. But as I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, just pushing Hammel back to the end of the rotation would have put Kazmir in line to pitch...
