Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are calling up Jesse Hahn to start Saturday against the Astros.
It was previously reported that Hahn wouldn't be called up this weekend due to a blister, but he's apparently feeling better. Sean Manaea is making his major league debut Friday, so it's unclear who Hahn will bump from the rotation. Chris Bassitt is probably the most likely candidate. Hahn has posted a 2.04 ERA and 13/9 K/BB ratio in 17 2/3 innings through four starts this season with Triple-A Nashville. Apr 29 - 1:17 PM

Jesse Hahn will not join the A's rotation this week because he is dealing with a blister.

Sean Manaea, the A's top pitching prospect, is going to get the nod instead in place of recently-demoted starter Eric Surkamp. Manaea is good enough to run away with that rotation spot, but Hahn will get his shot eventually. He owns a 2.04 ERA in four starts this season at the Triple-A level.
Apr 27 - 1:02 PM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle suspects Jesse Hahn will join the A's rotation this week.

Eric Surkamp was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Monday after getting hammered by the Blue Jays on Sunday. Hahn boasts a 2.04 ERA in four starts this season at the Triple-A level, though he has walked nine batters in 17 2/3 innings. He may be a decent fantasy streaming option in the right matchups.
Apr 25 - 2:57 PM

Jesse Hahn would likely start in Felix Doubront's place if he can't make his scheduled start on Friday.

Doubront left Saturday's outing with left forearm tightness and is now headed for an MRI. Hahn was optioned to Triple-A Nashville earlier this week but is on the same schedule as Doubront and would seem to be the obvious replacement. Hahn pitched well for Oakland last year, recording a 3.35 ERA over 16 starts.
Apr 2 - 10:47 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.

This means that Felix Doubront will open the season in Oakland's rotation. Hahn is healthy this spring and has displayed good velocity, but he posted an ugly 11.15 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings. He'll try to get back on track in the minors.
Mar 29 - 3:12 PM

Jesse Hahn was torched for six runs on 10 hits and two walks over 4 2/3 frames on Monday versus the Indians.

Hahn entered the contest with a 10.97 ERA this spring and managed to push it up to 11.15. The right-hander's velocity this spring has been fine, but he's no longer throwing his slider in order to protect his elbow and it's possible that's hurting his results.
Mar 28 - 6:53 PM

Jesse Hahn gave up two runs in four innings against the Indians on Friday.

Hahn started out shaky by giving up two runs in the first inning, but he settled down from there. With his fastball velocity touching the mid-90s, he gave up four hits in all while issuing one walk and striking out five batters. Health and workload are the big questions for Hahn after he missed the second half last year with a forearm strain, but he’s certainly worth late-round consideration in mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 18 - 9:15 PM

Jesse Hahn allowed a pair of runs over two innings of work on Monday versus the Royals.

Mike Moustakas took Hahn deep with a two-run shot in the first inning, but the right-hander settled in after that and didn't give up any more hits. Hahn will ditch his slider this season, which could limit his upside even if it helps keep him healthy.
Mar 7 - 8:06 PM

John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports that Jesse Hahn plans to stop throwing his slider in 2016.

The right-hander feels that pitch is the primary cause of his elbow troubles in 2015 so he'll scrap it altogether. While it may help to keep him healthy, it may limit his effectiveness on the mound.
Feb 21 - 5:36 PM

Jesse Hahn said Saturday that he has now had five mound sessions and indicated that his forearm feels good.

He also added that he doesn't have any restrictions on him as spring training opens. While the 26-year-old right-hander has a lengthy injury history, he's as healthy as he has been in years and has a spot secure in the A's rotation to begin the season. He'll be a terrific mixed league asset for as long as he remains healthy.
Feb 20 - 12:44 PM

Jesse Hahn (elbow) said Sunday that he's thrown "with no pain" this offseason.

Hahn missed the second half with a forearm/elbow issue, but he resumed a throwing program last September and it appears he's continued to progress with no setbacks. The right-hander has dealt with multiple injuries in his career and remains a health risk going into 2016, but it sounds like he'll enter spring training without any limitations.
Jan 24 - 2:02 PM

Athletics activated RHP Jesse Hahn from the 60-day disabled list.

He's back on the 40-man roster. Hahn missed the second half with a forearm/elbow issue but resumed a throwing program late in the year. The hope is that he'll be 100 percent for spring training.

Jesse Hahn (forearm) resumed throwing at 60 feet on Tuesday.

It's a pleasant surprise. Hahn has already been ruled out for the season with a forearm injury that first surfaced just before the All-Star break, but him getting in some throwing before the end of the season is a good sign. The hope will be that he can have a normal offseason and report to spring training at 100 percent.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 07:13:00 PM

Athletics transferred RHP Jesse Hahn from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move makes room for the A's September call-ups. Hahn was shut down in July with right forearm inflammation and simply hasn't made enough progress to return.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 03:36:00 PM

Jesse Hahn (forearm) is still feeling stiffness when doing strengthening exercises.

Obviously, the A's aren't going to allow him to resume a throwing program until that stiffness completely subsides. There's a good chance the club winds up shutting Hahn down for the season.
