Jesse Hahn was on his game Monday, going the distance for his first career shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Tigers.
Hahn's defense didn't make things easy on him, as he had to navigate around three errors behind him. Three double-play balls helped, as did just one walk and five strikeouts. All four of the Tigers' hits were just singles. After a 5/3 K/BB ratio over his first three starts of the season, Hahn has a 31/9 K/BB ratio since in six outings. He'll bring an improving 3.69 ERA into a home matchup with the Yankees this weekend. May 25 - 7:08 PM

Jesse Hahn allowed three earned runs over six innings Wednesday in the A's loss to the Astros.

Hahn gave up an RBI single to Jake Marisnick in the bottom of the third inning and a two-run Evan Gattis homer in the bottom of the sixth. It wasn't a terrible start -- Hahn struck out six and walked just two -- but Astros ace Dallas Keuchel shut down the Oakland offense with relative ease. Hahn will carry a 1-4 record and 4.43 ERA into his next outing at home against the Tigers.
May 20 - 5:24 PM

Jesse Hahn yielded six runs -- four earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Mariners.

Hahn's ERA has jumped from 2.86 to 4.73 while he's given up 10 earned runs over 10 1/3 innings in his last two starts. It's encouraging that he's allowed just one homer this season, but he's been a mild disappointment, particularly in the strikeout department. We wouldn't give up on him in mixed leagues just yet.
May 10 - 1:27 AM

Jesse Hahn was hammered by the Twins, giving up six runs in five-plus innings en route to a loss on Monday.

Hahn was slipping nothing by a normally-weak Twins lineup. The right-hander allowed 10 hits, walked none, and struck out five in the effort. The Twins countered the Athletics' four-run first inning with a four-run second inning. Hahn contributed to a four-run sixth as well, departing in the middle of the onslaught. The right-hander has a mediocre 4.33 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 16/4 K/BB ratio in 27 innings. He'll look to rebound in his next start in Seattle against the Mariners.
May 4 - 11:34 PM

Jesse Hahn surrendered three runs on four hits and a walk across five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

He punched out six. Hahn exited last Saturday's start versus the Royals with a blister on his right hand and missed his next outing waiting for it to abate. He gave up two runs in the first inning but pitched well in the next four frames outside of a third inning solo Mike Trout homer. The 25-year-old, who posted a 3.07 ERA with a 70/32 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings for the Padres last year, has put up a nice 2.86 ERA and 0.95 WHIP across his first four starts in green and gold.
Apr 30 - 1:12 AM

Jesse Hahn (blister) has been cleared to start on Wednesday against the Angels.

Hahn missed a turn due to a blister, but he says it's much better and he's ready to go. The young right-hander boasts a 2.12 ERA and 0.94 WHIP through his first three starts, though he's struck out just five across 17 innings.
Apr 28 - 6:36 PM

Jesse Hahn (blister) will throw a bullpen on Sunday or Monday to determine if he's able to return to the Athletics rotation on Wednesday.

He was scratched from his scheduled start on Thursday due to the blister issue, which has improved in recent days. If Hahn is unable to go, Jesse Chavez seems likely to take another turn through the rotation.
Apr 25 - 3:00 PM

Jesse Hahn (blister) has been scratched from his next scheduled start on Thursday in Anaheim.

He'll miss just the one outing, as the A's want to give him some extra rest in order to allow his blister to fully heal. Hahn will rejoin the rotation next week. Jesse Chavez will make a spot start on Thursday in Hahn's place.
Apr 20 - 8:14 PM

The Athletics will wait to see how Jesse Hahn (blister) does in his between-starts bullpen session before determining whether he'll be ready for his next outing.

Hahn tossed 5 1/3 scoreless frames Saturday before having to leave with a blister issue. He'll ultimately be fine, but it's possible the A's will skip him one time through the rotation in order to allow the blister to fully heal. Jesse Chavez, who threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings himself in relief of Hahn, would be in line for a spot start.
Apr 19 - 12:15 PM

Jesse Hahn left his start Saturday versus the Royals with a blister on his right hand.

It doesn't sound like much, though blisters sometimes cause starting pitchers to miss rotation turns. It's a coin flip whether Hahn will be ready to go Thursday against the Angels. If he isn't ready, expect Jesse Chavez to get the nod. Hahn allowed just three hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings on Saturday night against the Royals and boasts a 2.12 ERA through three starts this season.
Apr 18 - 9:22 PM

Jesse Hahn left Saturday's start against the Royals in the sixth inning after fielding a comebacker.

He was looking at a finger on his throwing hand when he exited. It's a shame because Hahn was having an excellent game, allowing just three hits in 5 1/3 shutout innings. Jesse Chavez came on to take his place. We should know more about Hahn's status after the game. He could be dealing with a blister.
Apr 18 - 8:58 PM

Jesse Hahn surrendered four runs (one earned) on three hits across 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Sandwiched between a sixth inning sacrifice fly and an RBI single was a big Josh Reddick error that allowed two runs to score. Outside of that sketchy sixth frame, Hahn was fine. He struck out two and walked two. Hahn's a talented pitcher, though his numbers through two starts aren't particularly eye-popping. He won his rotation slot off a strong spring.
Apr 12 - 7:38 PM

Jesse Hahn got the loss in Tuesday's start against the Rangers after allowing three earned runs in six innings.

Only one of the seven hits Hahn allowed was of the extra-base variety. Prince Fielder did most of the damage, knocking in all three runs with two singles. Teammate Craig Gentry made a fielding error which allowed the third run to score. Hahn walked none and struck out three on the evening.
Apr 8 - 12:45 AM

Jesse Hahn excelled in his Cactus League start against the Rangers on Friday, surrendering just one run on three hits across 5 1/3 innings.

Hahn punched out three on the afternoon while issuing only one free pass. He has been terrific in his battle for a spot in the A's rotation this spring, compiling a 3.06 ERA and 11/5 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings. As long as he secures a spot in the rotation, the 25-year-old right-hander has more than enough upside to be mixed league relevant in 2015.
Mar 27 - 8:58 PM

Jesse Hahn had a solid afternoon against the Reds on Saturday, tossing five scoreless innings.

Hahn limited the opposition to four hits and two walks while striking out two. He's one of many contestants for a spot in the Athletics' rotation, so he badly needed to perform well in his latest start. Hahn now has a 3.65 ERA in 12 1/3 spring innings.
