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. Hammel will rejoin the team after the weekend. Hammel has bounced back strong after a rough initial month with Oakland; he hasn’t allowed more than three runs in any of his past five starts. 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...

Hammel’s best game isn’t enough without support from A’s

There’s no doubt Jason Hammel hasn’t done as much for the A’s he, or they, would have hoped. The other side of the coin is that the A’s haven’t done all that much for Hammel, either, including Tuesday when they… Continue Reading →

Chris Carter’s three-run homer in 8th sinks A’s

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Minute Maid Park Just as the A’s were feeling good about Jason Hammel’s best outing as a member of the team, the defense – terrific up to that point – and the bullpen blew it on Tuesday at Minute Maid Park. Hammel, who hasn’t had an easy time […]

A's considered bumping Hammel from rotation - Jesse Chavez (S) Oakland Athletics

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics considered removing Jason Hammel from the rotation before ultimately deciding to just skip his turn.

A’s to skip Jason Hammel, but he’s still in rotation: Selig in town

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum The A’s rotation this weekend for a key series with the Angels looks like this: Sonny Gray, Jon Lester, Scott Kazmir. As I had reported last week, the team is indeed skipping Jason Hammel’s turn this week thanks to days off yesterday and on Thursday. Hammel’s spot is shaky altogether after mostly disappointing results, including a three-homers-allowed game on Friday at Atlanta, but manager Bob Melvin said that Hammel will slot back into the rotation in Houston next week. Hammel – who had made two much better starts before that...
