Athletics general manager Billy Beane admitted Thursday that Jesse Hahn is looking at a "somewhat extended stay" on the disabled list.

The A's are going to take every possible precaution to protect the arm of the 25-year-old right-hander. Chris Bassitt will continue to occupy his spot in the A's rotation and makes for an interesting add in deeper mixed leagues.
Jul 16 - 10:48 PM

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

Hahn will be shut down for the next two weeks while he recovers from the injury. Chris Bassitt has been recalled to take his place in the rotation for the time being.

Jesse Hahn will rest for the next two weeks to nurse a forearm injury.

Hahn had been slated to start against the Indians on Saturday, but an MRI revealed a forearm strain and the A's are opting to shut him down for the next two weeks. There's no current timetable for his recovery. Chris Bassitt will get the start on Saturday.
Jul 10 - 5:12 PM

Jesse Hahn was scratched from Saturday's start against the Indians and has returned to Oakland to undergo an MRI on his right elbow.

Hahn has been dealing with some elbow discomfort of late and the Athletics saw enough during his bullpen session Wednesday to send him for tests as a precautionary measure. Chris Bassitt will start in his place Saturday against Cleveland.
Jul 9 - 4:55 PM

Jesse Hahn (elbow) made it through a successful bullpen session on Wednesday afternoon.

Hahn told reporters after the workout that he should have no trouble starting Saturday against the Indians. He had been bothered by some mild discomfort in his right elbow. Hahn, 25, boasts a 3.35 ERA, 1.169 WHIP, and 64/25 K/BB ratio in 96 2/3 innings this season and he's been especially good lately.
Jul 8 - 5:27 PM

Jesse Hahn's next scheduled start has been pushed back to Saturday in Cleveland due to "slight" right elbow discomfort, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

It seems the A's are convinced it's a minor issue, otherwise they'd just hold Hahn out until after the All-Star break. Still, there's always got to be at least a little bit of concern when the elbow is involved. Hahn boasts a 2.42 ERA over his last eight starts.
Jul 8 - 9:25 AM

Jesse Hahn limited the Rockies to one run over six innings to earn the win on Wednesday.

Hahn held the Rox to just four hits while walking two on the afternoon. The right-hander also struck out six hitters in the outing. Hahn has now won five of his last seven decisions to pull even at 6-6 overall. The right-hander owns a 3.35 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 64/25 K/BB ratio heading into a bout with the Yankees in New York on Tuesday.
Jul 1 - 6:57 PM

Jesse Hahn allowed just one run over 7 2/3 innings Saturday in the A's 4-1 victory over the Angels.

Hahn walked four but gave up only four hits in the impressive afternoon outing. The one run he allowed was on an Erick Aybar RBI single in the top of the sixth inning. Hahn struck out four. The 25-year-old right-hander will bring a 3.40 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Rangers.
Jun 20 - 7:11 PM

Jesse Hahn pitched the Athletics to a 9-1 win against the Padres on Monday, giving up just one run in 6 2/3 innings.

Hahn issued a free pass to lead off the third inning and it bit him when Will Venable brought a run home with a one-out double. Other than that, Hahn was impenetrable. The right-hander allowed only three hits and two walks while striking out four in the effort. Hahn now owns a 3.62 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 49/18 K/BB ratio over 77 innings. He'll toe the rubber at home against the Angels in his next start.
Jun 16 - 1:43 AM

Jesse Hahn was chased out in the fourth inning after giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks across 3 2/3 innings in Wednesday's no-decision versus the Rangers.

Hahn, who also failed to strike out a batter, was mercifully yanked after 68 pitches. The start is a bit of a letdown, as the youngster had posted a 1.64 ERA over his last three starts. Hahn falls to 3-6, but he's pitched well overall with a 3.84 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.
Jun 11 - 1:16 AM

Jesse Hahn pitched another very good game in a 7-5 win over the Tigers on Thursday afternoon, allowing just one run on five hits over seven innings.

Maybe Hahn just needs to face the Tigers every time he starts. In his last outing, he shut them out in a complete game effort. Thursday's rematch didn't see another shutout--Miguel Cabrera dinged him for an RBI single in the sixth inning--but it's still been an impressive last two starts for the 25-year-old righty. Hahn struck out five and walked one in a game that helped to lower his ERA to 3.51. He'll take that number, plus a 1.13 WHIP and 45/14 K/BB ratio over 73 2/3 innings, into a home start against the Rangers next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 4 - 4:21 PM

Jesse Hahn was on his game Monday, going the distance for his first career shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Tigers.

Hahn's defense didn't make things easy on him, as he had to navigate around three errors behind him. Three double-play balls helped, as did just one walk and five strikeouts. All four of the Tigers' hits were just singles. After a 5/3 K/BB ratio over his first three starts of the season, Hahn has a 31/9 K/BB ratio since in six outings. He'll bring an improving 3.69 ERA into a home matchup with the Yankees this weekend.
May 25 - 7:08 PM

Jesse Hahn allowed three earned runs over six innings Wednesday in the A's loss to the Astros.

Hahn gave up an RBI single to Jake Marisnick in the bottom of the third inning and a two-run Evan Gattis homer in the bottom of the sixth. It wasn't a terrible start -- Hahn struck out six and walked just two -- but Astros ace Dallas Keuchel shut down the Oakland offense with relative ease. Hahn will carry a 1-4 record and 4.43 ERA into his next outing at home against the Tigers.
May 20 - 5:24 PM

Jesse Hahn yielded six runs -- four earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Mariners.

Hahn's ERA has jumped from 2.86 to 4.73 while he's given up 10 earned runs over 10 1/3 innings in his last two starts. It's encouraging that he's allowed just one homer this season, but he's been a mild disappointment, particularly in the strikeout department. We wouldn't give up on him in mixed leagues just yet.
