Athletics acquired RHPs Jesse Hahn and R.J. Alvarez from the Padres in exchange for C Derek Norris, RHP Seth Streich and international bonus slot 117.
Hahn had a breakout showing with the Padres in 2014, posting a 3.07 ERA while striking out 70 over 73 1/3 innings. He's had past arm issues, but if he can stay healthy he should maintain plenty of fantasy upside pitching half his games at O.co Coliseum. Dec 18 - 11:56 PM

Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown reports that the Padres are willing to trade Jesse Hahn in order to add offense.

Hahn was terrific in his first go-round in the majors last season, holding a 3.07 ERA while striking out 70 over 73 1/3 innings. He's under team control for many more years, so the cost wouldn't be cheap. The Padres are also shopping Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy and Tyson Ross.
Dec 9 - 9:56 PM

Jesse Hahn is doubtful to get a start this month.

MLB.com's Corey Brock suspects that the Padres will use the rookie right-hander in a long relief role the rest of the way. Hahn has registered 114 1/3 innings this season between the minors and majors -- well above the 69 innings he threw in 2013. San Diego is being extra careful with the 25-year-old. Dump him in redraft leagues.
Sep 1 - 9:01 AM

Jesse Hahn pitched two innings in relief Sunday, allowing one run against the Dodgers.

Hahn wasn't terribly successful, giving up four hits and two walks in his two innings. At 72 innings, the Padres are aiming to limit his innings the rest of the way. He can be dropped in redraft leagues if he hasn't been already.
Aug 31 - 9:11 PM

Padres recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Double-A San Antonio.

Hahn is near his innings limit, so the Padres plan to use him in relief from here on out. The rookie boasts a 2.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts in 70 frames this season. He's a big part of San Diego's future.
Aug 30 - 5:31 PM

Padres optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Double-A San Antonio.

Hahn has already thrown a career-high 110 1/3 innings this season, and with his injury history that Padres are beginning the process of tapering off his workload. He will return next month but whether it's as a starter or reliever hasn't been determined. Hahn has had a terrific rookie campaign, posting a 2.96 ERA over 12 starts.
Aug 19 - 6:34 PM

Jesse Hahn is approaching his innings limit but is not expected to be shut down completely.

Hahn has pitched a career-high 110 1/3 innings this season. The Padres aren't revealing what his exact innings cap is, but it sounds like he won't be totally shut down. "In that past, we’ve skipped guys; we’ve pushed them back," manager Bud Black said. "For me, I think it’s good to keep a guy active, whether it’s in the bullpen or pitching in spots, but this time of year, I don’t know whether a complete shutdown is good. I think you have to keep players mentally engaged."
Aug 17 - 10:12 AM

Jesse Hahn yielded five earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

St. Louis pushed across four runs in the bottom of the second inning with a barrage of doubles and then one more in the fifth inning on a Matt Adams triple. But the San Diego offense went off for nine runs against Shelby Miller and the St. Louis bullpen. Hahn has pitched extremely well this season, but he may be running low on energy with his innings limit approaching. The 25-year-old could be shut down by the end of August.
Aug 17 - 12:36 AM

Jesse Hahn allowed three runs over five innings, allowing five hits, in a no-decision against the Rockies on Monday.

Hahn whiffed five and issued three free passes. The right-hander's control has perturbed us in recent weeks, though it hasn't hurt his effectiveness -- yet. He's issued 16 free passes over 29 2/3 frames in his last five outings -- to be fair, he hadn't given up more than four hits in a game until this evening -- but hasn't coughed up more than three runs since his debut back on June 3. The 25-year-old Hahn takes his 2.52 ERA into a date versus the Cardinals in St. Louis on Saturday.
Aug 12 - 1:37 AM

Jesse Hahn allowed a three-run home run in the sixth inning, taking the loss against the Twins on Tuesday.

Hahn held the Twins scoreless through two outs in the sixth, but Twins designated hitter Kennys Vargas changed the course of the game with one swing. Hahn allowed four hits and walked four in all, striking out three. The loss snapped a string of three straight wins, and Hahn is still 7-2 since a poor outing in his first career start. Hahn is 7-3 with a 2.28 ERA overall, and he'll look to get back in the win column Monday against the Rockies.
Aug 6 - 12:08 AM

Jesse Hahn fired seven innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits, in a 12-1 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Hahn, who was lifted after 95 pitches having run out of gas, whiffed a trio and also walked two. This was the right-hander's seventh win in his last eight starts. Hahn, a 2010 sixth-round pick who came to San Diego along with Alex Torres for Logan Forsythe, Brad Boxberger, Matt Andriese, and Maxx Tissenbaum in January, entered this evening 6-1 with a 1.47 ERA in seven starts since returning to the rotation on June 14. The 24-year-old right-hander boasts a 1.88 ERA and 1.01 WHIP over his first nine major league outings. Hahn has a nice matchup on deck, getting the Twins in the Twin Cities on Tuesday.
Jul 31 - 1:32 AM

Padres manager Bud Black said this weekend that Jesse Hahn has "between five and 10 starts left."

Hahn threw just 69 innings last season in the Rays' minor league system after returning from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and has already totaled 87 innings this season between Double-A San Antonio and big-league San Diego. The 24-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.12 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over his first eight major league outings, but enjoy the ride while you still can. He won't be much help down the stretch.
Jul 28 - 1:00 PM

Jesse Hahn fired six innings of one-run ball in a 5-2 win over the Braves on Friday.

Hahn was solid in his return to the majors, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out four batters. The only run scored on a sacrifice fly from Justin Upton his final inning of work. The 24-year-old now owns a 2.12 ERA and 51/19 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings over eight starts this season. The Padres don't figure to score many runs for him (even after the past two nights), but he should be relevant in mixed leagues as long as he's in the rotation.
Jul 25 - 11:13 PM

Padres recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A El Paso.

Hahn will start on Friday in Atlanta after being sent down before the All-Star break in order to keep pitching. The young right-hander has been superb over his 40 2/3 innings with the Padres, putting up a 2.21 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with 47 strikeouts.
Jul 25 - 1:40 PM

Jesse Hahn will be recalled to start on Friday in Atlanta.

Hahn was sent down over the All-Star break in order to keep pitching. The rookie has been excellent over 40 2/3 innings for San Diego, posting a 2.21 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with 47 strikeouts. He should be scooped back up in leagues where he was dropped.
