Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.
This season has been something of a trying one for Hahn. Through seven starts covering 34 2/3 innings, he holds a 6.49 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 16/15 K/BB ratio. His last start might have been the nail in the coffin -- he surrendered four runs on eight hits in just 3 2/3 innings against the Brewers last time out. He should earn a chance at redemption if he can tighten things up at the lower level. Jun 10 - 2:03 PM

Date:

Jesse Hahn was pulled after giving up four runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Brewers.

Unfortunately, that start last week in which Hahn failed to make it out of the first didn't turn out to be an aberration. Hahn had a 3.23 ERA in 170 innings as a major leaguer coming into this year and he's currently throwing harder than he ever has before, yet his ERA stands at 6.49 right now. He should get things turned around, but perhaps the A's will send him down to right the ship in Triple-A.

Jesse Hahn failed to make it out of the first inning Friday against the Astros, as he was hammered for seven runs and retired just two batters.

Ouch. Hahn blanked the Astros over 6 2/3 innings in his MLB season debut on April 30, but they had his number this time around. He allowed six hits (five of them singles) and walked a pair in the nightmare frame. To be fair, the damage could have been limited to three runs if Chris Coghlan was able to snag a catchable ball in right field. The ugly outing saw Hahn’s ERA balloon from 4.15 to 6.10 on the year. The right-hander will attempt to turn the page in an interleague start against the Brewers next week on the road.
Jun 4 - 12:27 AM

Jesse Hahn allowed three runs over six innings in a win over the Tigers on Saturday.

It wasn't his most efficient start, as he gave up five hits while walking four, but Hahn did well to avoid most of the damage. A two-run home run in the sixth inning by Victor Martinez threatened to leave him without a say in the decision, but the A's scored five runs in the bottom of the inning to get Hahn his second win of the year. The right-hander will take a 4.15 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into Friday's start at the Astros.
May 28 - 7:09 PM

Jesse Hahn struggled in Sunday's loss to the Yankees, surrendering four runs on six hits over his 5 2/3 innings.

Hahn struck out three on the afternoon without issuing a walk. His troubles stemmed from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, with Jacoby Ellsbury and Bran McCann each launching solo homers against him. He'll look to improve upon a 4.07 ERA and 1.40 WHIP when he takes on the Tigers on Saturday.
May 22 - 7:34 PM

Jesse Hahn pitched decently in Tuesday's no-decision against the Rangers, surrendering three runs on 10 hits over 6 2/3 innings.

The 10 hits allowed aren't particularly encouraging, but given that Hahn had been toiling in Triple-A prior to Tuesday's start, the outing was a fine effort on the whole. All three runs on his line scored in the fourth inning, with solo homers by Nomar Mazara and Adrian Beltre accounting for two of the three. Hahn should have a chance to stick in the rotation, particularly with Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) suffering a recent setback in his rehab. His next start will come at home against the Yankees.
May 18 - 1:05 AM

Athletics recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn will return from the minors to start Tuesday against the Rangers. The 26-year-old has made two starts with the A's this season -- one great, one not-so-great -- but he's worth a shot over Eric Surkamp. With Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) suffering a setback, he could have a chance to run away with a rotation spot. Health is always a question with Hahn, but he's worth monitoring in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 17 - 8:22 AM

The Athletics are expected to call up right-hander Jesse Hahn from Triple-A Nashville to start Tuesday against the Rangers.

He'll get the nod over Eric Surkamp, who gave up four runs in just 2 2/3 innings against the Red Sox last week. No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Hahn had one excellent outing and one shaky start with the A's prior to being sent down earlier this month, but he's capable of producing value in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 16 - 9:03 PM

Jesse Hahn is no longer listed as Tuesday's starter with Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn, who was optioned to Triple-A earlier this month, is eligible to return as soon as Wednesday. Nothing is official, but it appears likely he could get a call up later this week.
May 16 - 4:29 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn was terrific in his season debut but then struggled in his second outing Saturday and now finds himself back in the minors. Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) won't quite be ready by the time the A's need a fifth starter, so Eric Surkamp could get another shot.
May 8 - 10:10 AM

Jesse Hahn allowed five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Orioles in the second game of a doubleheader Saturday.

Hahn gave up a two-run home run to Chris Davis among his eight hits allowed, and he also walked four. It was a disappointing follow-up to his season debut in which he blanked the Astros over 6 2/3 innings. With one strong start and one clunker, perhaps we'll get a clearer picture of the real Hahn next weekend against the Rays.
May 7 - 10:11 PM

Jesse Hahn made a statement in his season debut Saturday, holding the Astros scoreless over 6 2/3 innings in the Athletics' 2-0 win.

Hahn gave up just three hits and walked two in the game. He began the season at Triple-A Nashville after struggling in spring, but he posted a 2.04 ERA in four starts in the minors prior to being recalled. With Chris Bassitt on the disabled list, Hahn will keep his rotation spot for at least the next few weeks. If he pitches well, his stay in the A's rotation will very likely extend beyond Bassitt's return.
Apr 30 - 6:50 PM

Athletics recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn will make his season debut on Saturday against the Astros. As long as he pitches well, he has a chance to stick for a while given all of the injuries experienced in the A's rotation.
Apr 30 - 12:42 PM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are calling up Jesse Hahn to start Saturday against the Astros.

It was previously reported that Hahn wouldn't be called up this weekend due to a blister, but he's apparently feeling better. Sean Manaea is making his major league debut Friday, so it's unclear who Hahn will bump from the rotation. Chris Bassitt is probably the most likely candidate. Hahn has posted a 2.04 ERA and 13/9 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings through four starts this season with Triple-A Nashville.
Apr 29 - 1:17 PM

Jesse Hahn will not join the A's rotation this week because he is dealing with a blister.

Sean Manaea, the A's top pitching prospect, is going to get the nod instead in place of recently-demoted starter Eric Surkamp. Manaea is good enough to run away with that rotation spot, but Hahn will get his shot eventually. He owns a 2.04 ERA in four starts this season at the Triple-A level.
