Jesse Hahn struck out three batters as he fired three shutout innings at the Rangers on Thursday.

He gave up three hits, all singles. It was a nice bounce-back effort for Hahn after he allowed three runs to the Cubs in his first spring outing. He is battling Andrew Triggs for the fifth slot in the Athletics' starting rotation. He started nine games for Oakland last season, finishing with a 6.02 ERA and only 23 strikeouts in 46 1/3 innings.
Mar 2 - 8:04 PM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that Jesse Hahn is in a "neck-and-neck" race with Andrew Triggs for the fifth spot in the Athletics' rotation.

Triggs has been talked up all offseason as the likely fifth starter after his surprising late-season success in the A's rotation. He probably still has a slight lead at this juncture, but Slusser says Hahn has been "impressive" in his early bullpen sessions. Hahn did struggle in the team's Cactus League opener Saturday, and of course he posted an ugly 6.02 ERA for the A's last season. There's obviously a long way to go before this battle is sorted out.

Jesse Hahn allowed three runs on four hits over 1 2/3 innings in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Cubs.

Hahn struck out two and walked one in his spring debut. Not the sharpest of outings, but it is early yet. The 27-year-old right-hander has an outside shot at landing the fifth spot in the rotation, with Andrew Triggs considered the favorite at this juncture. Last season, Hahn pitched to a rough 6.02 ERA across 46 1/3 innings (nine starts).
Feb 25 - 5:56 PM

Jesse Hahn will start the Athletics' Cactus League opener Saturday against the Cubs.

Andrew Triggs has been considered the favorite for the fifth spot in the rotation, but this is an indication that Hahn is still very much in the mix. We've seen success when healthy in the past, so he could earn a spot with a strong spring. A's manager Bob Melvin noted last week that Hahn has the sink back on his fastball, so he's a name to watch.

A's manager Bob Melvin said Thursday that Jesse Hahn (shoulder) has the sink back on his fastball.

Oakland catchers Stephen Vogt and Josh Phegley have said the same. Hahn carries a real shot at claiming a starting rotation spot this spring despite finishing the 2016 season off the 25-man roster. The 27-year-old right-hander has always been effective when healthy. There's some sneaky fantasy value building here.
Feb 16 - 2:33 PM

Athletics activated RHP Jesse Hahn from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn is over his shoulder issue but won't rejoin the big club just yet. He was pummeled for seven runs over 3 2/3 innings in his last rehab start.

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Nashville next Tuesday.

Hahn has been on the disabled list since August 5 because of a right shoulder strain. He was supposed to return this past Sunday but felt lingering discomfort while throwing a tuneup bullpen session. The right-hander owns a rough 6.02 ERA in 46 1/3 innings this season at the major league level.

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) will not make his scheduled start Sunday after suffering a setback during a recent bullpen session.

He's feeling some slight shoulder discomfort, which prevents him from fully extending on his pitches. Despite the setback, Hahn is confident he'll pitch again this season. Zach Neal will draw the start in his place Sunday against the White Sox.

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) will rejoin the Athletics' rotation on Sunday against the White Sox.

Hahn allowed one run over four innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Nashville, paving the way for his return to the A's rotation. Zach Neal will move back to the bullpen to accommodate Hahn's return.

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) allowed one run over four innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Nashville.

He yielded only two hits but walked three in the so-so outing against the Triple-A affiliate of the Mariners. There's been talk of Hahn returning to the A's rotation next week, but it's possible he'll be asked to make one more start on the farm. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since August 5 with a minor shoulder strain.
Tue, Aug 16, 2016 11:36:00 PM

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) is expected to make a rehab start on Tuesday.

Working his way back from right shoulder fatigue, Hahn threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday with no issues. He'll rejoin the A's rotation after Tuesday's rehab start, either taking the ball August 21 against the White Sox or August 22 versus the Indians.
Sun, Aug 14, 2016 10:11:00 AM

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) is expected to return to the A's rotation around August 20.

Hahn felt strong after some throwing work earlier this week and A's manager Bob Melvin said Thursday that a rehab start will be coming soon. The right-hander has been on the 15-day disabled list since August 5 because of a minor right shoulder strain. "Our guess is that will be close to if not right around the 15 days, the way he is progressing right now," Melvin told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Thu, Aug 11, 2016 03:17:00 PM

Jesse Hahn (shoulder) played catch Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

Hahn was pounded for five runs on seven hits over just four innings last Thursday in his return from Triple-A Nashville and then hit the DL less than 24 hours later with a right shoulder strain. Tuesday's light workout was a sign of improvement, but we still might not see him again this season. Hahn carries a 6.02 ERA in 46 1/3 innings at the major league level in 2016.
Wed, Aug 10, 2016 09:21:00 AM

Athletics placed RHP Jesse Hahn on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

Hahn was evidently injured during Thursday's outing against the Angels. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Daniel Mengden is expected to replace him in the A's rotation.
