MLB Quick Hits: Stop ... Hammel time!

The Cubs made a big splash when they signed Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million contract over the winter, and while Lester has pitched better lately, fellow free-agent acquisition Jason Hammel has been better. Hammel ranks fourth among starters in WHIP (0.95), 22nd in ERA (2.86) and T-32 in strikeouts (105).  Hammel left his July 8 start against the Cardinals after one inning...

Chicago Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel exits start early with hamstring tightness

Jason Hammel has been great in the Chicago Cubs rotation this season, holding a 5-4 record to support an ERA of 2.89 on the season. It’s likely been the best season of the 32-year old veteran’s 10 year career, seeing as his career ERA is 4.46. He’s been a cog in what is the 4th best staff in the majors (ERA wise) and has helped the Cubs to a 46-37 record, which is currently...

Journeyman Jason Hammel has found a home with the Chicago Cubs

After pitching for five different teams over nine seasons, it appeared as though Jason Hammel was never going to find a home in the big leagues. However, that all changed when the Chicago Cubs signed Hammel to a two-year deal worth $20 million in Dec. of 2014. It looked as though Hammel had already made Chicago his home in 2014, when he went 8-5 with a 2.98 earned run average in...

Cubs' Jason Hammel: Wrigley Field ‘looks like Baghdad’

With opening day a mere days away, the Chicago Cubs are full of hope as the team gears up for one of the most highly anticipated seasons in some time.

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Jason Hammel edition

Over the past couple of seasons, Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein have been able to sign low-end free agents and flip them at the trade deadline for relatively good prospects. Scott Feldman is a prime example of this as the Chicago Cubs took a chance that Feldman would have a bounceback year and bring value at the trade deadline last season. Sure enough, he had a very good first half...

Chicago Cubs rumors: Kevin Gausman edition

As we approach the MLB trade deadline, teams are putting themselves in position to be either buyers or sellers. As the year is beginning to take shape, it is looking as though it will be a seller’s market. With no team head and shoulders above the rest, it allows for more teams to become buyers, thus making it a sellers market. With that being said, it makes the trade deadline...

Jason Hammel and the Chicago Cubs Rotation

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...
