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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 24 - 6:20 PM

Jesse Hahn is expected to rejoin the Padres' rotation on July 26.

Hahn was optioned to Triple-A El Paso before the All-Star break so that he could keep pitching. The young right-hander will start for El Paso on Monday before likely rejoining the Padres that weekend if all goes well. He's put up a of the season's first half. Hahn is 5-2 with a 2.21 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 47 strikeouts in 40 2/3 innings for San Diego.
Jul 18 - 1:43 PM

Padres optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A El Paso.

Hahn should return after the All-Star break. He was sent down so that the Padres could add an extra infielder for their final two games of the season's first half. Hahn is 5-2 with a 2.21 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 47 strikeouts in 40 2/3 innings (seven starts) this year for San Diego.
Jul 12 - 6:17 PM

Jesse Hahn moved to 5-2 after limiting the Dodgers to one run and three hits in six innings Friday.

Hahn struck out six and walked four in his latest gem. Since returning to the majors on June 14, he's won five of his six starts, allowing just six earned runs over 37 innings. However, while Hahn figures to remain an asset in mixed leagues in the coming weeks, he's a prime candidate to be shut down for the season in early or mid-September. Prepare accordingly.
Jul 12 - 1:51 AM

Jesse Hahn allowed three runs on five hits over seven innings in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Hahn had strung together four consecutive wins before Sunday's outing. Even then, it's not as though Hahn was bad -- he walked two while striking out five, and his seven innings pitched matched his longest outing this season. The right-hander has an impressive 2.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 41/12 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings this year, and he'll look to get back in the win column Friday at the Dodgers.
Jul 6 - 10:51 PM

Jesse Hahn dominated in a brief appearance Monday, blanking the Reds over five innings and striking out nine in a 1-0 victory.

In the series opener in San Diego, Hahn scattered just three hits and issued two free passes over 97 pitches. The major league-worst Padres' offense had showed up for Hahn prior to tonight, scoring 14 runs of support during a three-start winning streak in which he posted a 0.95 ERA. Obviously he didn't need much help to stretch that streak to four straight. Hahn is still unowned in two-thirds of Yahoo leagues, so there's still some time to buy in. Now 4-1 with a 1.95 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 36/10 K/BB rate, Hahn welcomes the Giants to Petco on Sunday.
