Things were looking up for Oakland A’s starting pitcher Jason Hammel early in August when he earned his first win in an Athletics uniform. But in his last outing against the Atlanta Braves, Hammel gave up five earned runs in three innings pitched. Since coming to Oakland, Hammel has a 1-5 record with 7.00 ERA.

The Chicago Cubs lost a key addition in Masahiro Tanaka, who eventually signed a seven-year deal with the New York Yankees worth $155 million. Without Tanaka, the Cubs lost a key role that could have been filled in their starting rotation and a future ace. With that, the Cubs secured Baltimore Oriole starter Jason Hammel to a one-year deal last week worth $6 million. Although Hammel...
