Chicago Cubs: How can Brett Anderson help the team?

The Chicago Cubs may add Brett Anderson to their rotation. Can he help? The Chicago Cubs don’t have a ton of depth in their starting rotation. Their fifth starter last year, Jason Hammel, is currently a free agent after the Cubs declined his option. They traded for Mike Montgomery last season with the intention of […] Chicago Cubs: How can Brett Anderson help the team? - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

MLB hot stove notes: New suitor for Jason Hammel; Jose Quintana update

Here is all the latest baseball news and rumors.
Yankees have been connected to Boone Logan and Jerry Blevins

Yankees have been connected to Boone Logan and Jerry Blevins

Should the Yankees sign one of these lefty relievers? The offseason already feels like it is dragging along, and there is still over a month left before pitchers and catchers report to spring training. It has been a few weeks since the Yankees made any substantial moves, but rumors continue to circulate. So far the Yankees have done very little to improve their pitching (other than signing Aroldis Chapman), but they are rumored to be interested in signing Jason Hammel, and they have shown interest in acquiring Jose Quintana. The Yankees have reportedly been connected to left-handed...

With weakness in the back of the rotation, Hammel makes sense. The Yankees’ starting rotation is not in great shape. Masahiro Tanaka is a fine number one, but there is a quick drop-off in performance with Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia and Michael Pineda. The former is maddeningly inconsistent, and the latter is coming off his first good season since 2012. Beyond them? Who knows. It’s a hodgepodge of uneasy names, with Luis Severino, Luis Cessa, Chad Green, Bryan Mitchell, and Adam Warren all in the mix. 2017 seems to be shaping up as another development-focused year for the Yankees,...

Scouting the Free Agent Market: Jason Hammel

According to Brian Cashman, the Yankees went into this offseason looking for “pitching, pitching, pitching,” and so far they’ve (re-)signed Aroldis Chapman. And that’s it. Unless you count claiming Joe Mantiply off waivers and signing Jason Gurka to a minor league deal. The rotation has been untouched and Chapman has been the only bullpen upgrade.

Why Isn’t Jason Hammel a Mariner?

Why Isn’t Jason Hammel a Mariner?

A local boy, who plays a position the M’s need depth at, hasn’t signed yet. What gives? The Mariners need starting pitching. This isn’t exactly an open secret - with the trade of Taijuan Walker earlier this offseason, the M’s dealt away a mainstay of their rotation. Combine that with the departures of Wade Miley and Wade LeBlanc, along with a few other starters, and the M’s need to replace roughly 1⁄3 of their games started for 2017. Some of that comes through the simple accumulation of depth, and adding players like Chris Heston and, to a lesser extent, Ryan Weber, certainly...
