Jesse Hahn (elbow) hopes to resume throwing in a couple of weeks.
Hahn was placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday after being diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right arm. He could eventually require Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but the 28-year-old right-hander will first try a rehab plan. "We’re just gonna treat it right now and see how it responds," Hahn said Tuesday. "Test it dynamically, so, you know, let it calm down and then get out there, start a throwing program and just take it from there, one step day by day." Mar 6 - 8:04 PM

Royals placed RHP Jesse Hahn on the 60-day disabled list with sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Well, that's no good. Hahn was acquired from the Athletics in January and appeared likely to crack the Opening Day roster either in a starting or relief role. Now it's possible he could be facing Tommy John surgery. He previously had the surgery in 2010. More should be known soon. Placing him on the 60-day DL clears a spot for the newly-signed Jon Jay on the 40-man roster.

Jesse Hahn allowed two runs on two hits over 1 2/3 innings in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Dodgers.

Hahn was acquired from the A's in trade at the end of January. Making his spring debut with his new crew on Saturday, he struck out two and walked two. Both runs on his line scored in the second inning. He'll be attempting to win a back-end rotation spot as the spring unfolds and would likely work in a long-relief capacity if he fails to crack the starting five. Hahn has put up an unsightly 5.59 ERA over 116 combined frames during the last two seasons. He doesn't figure to hold any significant fantasy value for the upcoming campaign, regardless of how the spring shakes out.
Feb 24 - 5:51 PM

Royals acquired RHPs Jesse Hahn and Heath Fillmyer from the Athletics for 1B/OF Brandon Moss, LHP Ryan Buchter and cash.

Hahn has shown flashes at the major league level but holds a 5.59 ERA across 116 innings over the last two seasons and has had trouble staying healthy. He will compete for a spot in the Royals' rotation and should stick around in long relief if that doesn't work out since he's out of options.

Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn was torched for 16 runs -- 15 earned -- over his last two starts, lasting just two innings in each outing. Both of those outings were against Houston, though, and he had posted a 3.56 ERA prior to those starts, so Hahn figures to get another shot before too long. It appears that Paul Blackburn and Daniel Gossett will remain in the A's rotation for the time being.

Jesse Hahn was roughed up again Wednesday, surrendering six runs in two-plus innings against the Astros.

Everything was going swimmingly for Hahn a week ago, as he was sporting a 3.56 ERA in 65 2/3 innings. Since then, he's given up 15 earned runs while getting just 12 outs in his last two starts, which makes us wonder if he might be hurt again. His ERA is suddenly up to 5.30, and his rotation spot is probably in jeopardy.

Jesse Hahn imploded in Thursday’s loss to the Astros, allowing six hits, 10 runs (nine earned) and three walks over two miserable innings.

Hahn had no command whatsoever, throwing just 29 of his 58 pitches for strikes. Jake Marisnick smoked Hahn’s offering for a three-run homer in the second inning and Marwin Gonzalez added to the misery by swatting a three-run blast of his own later in the frame. In total, the Astros scored eight times off Hahn in the second while sending 11 men to the plate. Hahn is now 0-2 with a 13.50 ERA in two starts against the Astros this year. Unfortunately he'll match up with Houston again on Wednesday.

Jesse Hahn allowed two runs in five innings to earn a win over the Yankees on Saturday.

He allowed just three base hits but unfortunately they all came in the same inning. The Yankees strung together three straight singles and a sacrifice fly to plate two runs in the second frame. Hahn struck out six batters and issued three free passes while amassing 105 pitches in his five innings. His record improves to 3-4 with a 3.56 ERA.

Jesse Hahn surrendered three runs on seven hits over five innings while taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Hahn was working with a 3-0 advantage through the first four innings, but the fifth proved problematic for him. In the frame, Mallex Smith, Corey Dickerson and Evan Longoria all picked up RBI hits, tying the game in the process. The 27-year-old right-hander will bring a 3.56 ERA and 1.34 WHIP into a home start against the lava-hot Yankees offense next time he toes the rubber.

Jesse Hahn allowed one unearned run while working around seven hits and a walk over six innings in a win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Hahn threw 52 of his 92 pitches for strikes in the quality start, making a successful return from the 10-day disabled list. He held down a pretty decent lineup and did not show any ill effects of his triceps injury. He'll look to keep it going in Sunday's start at Tampa Bay.

Athletics activated RHP Jesse Hahn from the 10-day disabled list.

Hahn will rejoin the A's rotation on Tuesday against the Blue Jays. The right-hander allowed two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings last Wednesday in a rehab start after going down with a mild triceps strain.
Tue, Jun 6, 2017 02:38:00 PM

Jesse Hahn (triceps) has officially been cleared to start Tuesday versus the Blue Jays.

Hahn allowed two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings last week in a rehab appearance and got through his regular between-starts bullpen session Saturday with no issues. He boasts a 3.81 ERA and 41/18 K/BB ratio over 49 2/3 innings this season and should be thrown back into fantasy lineups.
Sun, Jun 4, 2017 02:25:00 PM

Jesse Hahn (triceps) declared Friday that he's ready to return from the disabled list.

He'll throw his regular bullpen session on Saturday with the idea that he'll return to the A's rotation next week. Hahn has been sidelined since May 27 due to a right triceps strain.

Jesse Hahn (triceps) allowed two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in his rehab start with High-A Stockton.

Hahn allowed four hits and a walk while striking out four. He made it to 75 pitches and could be cleared to return to the Athletics' starting rotation next week, though there's nothing official yet on that front. Hahn landed on the 10-day disabled list May 27 with a right triceps strain.

Jesse Hahn (triceps) will make a minor league rehab start Wednesday with High-A Stockton.

Hahn suffered a right triceps strain in his start against the Marlins last Tuesday, but it doesn't look like it will keep him out of action for long. It's unclear if he'll require more than one rehab start before rejoining the A's rotation.
