Jesse Hahn allowed just one single and two walks with six strikeouts over eight scoreless innings in a no-decision Tuesday at L.A. Angels.
Hahn dropped his season ERA to 2.08, and he has allowed just three hits in 14 innings over his past two outings. Hahn was disastrous last season, posting a 2-4 record with a 6.02 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over nine starts for the A's. He'll look to continue his resurgence in Houston on Sunday, but he faces an uphill climb against a good lineup while being opposed by LHP Dallas Keuchel. Apr 26 - 2:30 AM

Jesse Hahn pitched well in Wednesday's win over the Rangers, allowing one run on two hits over six innings.

Hahn was a little wobbly with his control -- he walked four on the afternoon -- but it was otherwise a nice showing by the 27-year-old right-hander. He will carry a 3.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into a road start against the Angels next time he takes to the mound.

Jesse Hahn turned in a quality start in Thursday’s loss to the Royals, surrendering three runs on six hits over six innings.

Hahn struck out seven and walked two on the evening. The Royals hit him up for a pair of runs in the first inning courtesy of RBI singles by Lorenzo Cain and Salvador Perez. Brandon Moss’ third-inning sacrifice fly would polish of the scoring on Hahn’s line. Over his first two starts this season, the 27-year-old right-hander has pitched respectably enough, having allowed five runs on 13 hits over 12 frames. A home start against the Rangers shows next on his schedule.
Apr 14 - 5:02 AM

Jesse Hahn will start on Thursday versus the Royals.

He's taking Raul Alcantara's spot in the rotation. Hahn relieved a struggling Alcantara last Friday and allowed two runs over six innings of work, showing a fastball that touched 98 mph. The righty posted a 6.02 ERA over nine starts with the A's last season, but Hahn has certainly flashed upside before and is intriguing in deeper leagues with his velocity uptick.
Apr 9 - 1:24 PM

Jesse Hahn allowed two runs over six innings in relief of Raul Alcantara on Friday against the Rangers.

Hahn, who was called up this week when John Axford (shoulder) landed on the disabled list, allowed seven hits while walking one and striking out three. The solid outing at least saved the A’s bullpen from being stretched, but it could also open the door to him potentially taking Alcantara’s rotation spot. Of course, Hahn has options remaining while Alcantara doesn’t. It’s possible Hahn’s reward could be a return to the minors.

A's recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn was sent down at the end of spring training, but with John Axford now sidelined due to a shoulder injury, he will join the big league club to add a little pitching depth. He posted a 6.02 ERA in nine starts during the past campaign. There is no fantasy upside here.
Apr 5 - 4:57 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn had a shot to open the season in the rotation, but he posted an 8.80 ERA over 15 1/3 innings in the Cactus League. That wasn't going to cut it, especially after last year's 6.02 ERA with the big club. Hahn will try to get on track with Nashville.
Mar 26 - 12:15 PM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle called Jesse Hahn the "clear odd man out" in the Athletics' starting rotation.

Kendall Graveman, Sean Manaea and Jharel Cotton have already been announced as Oakland's No. 1-3 starters and Slusser suspects the final two spots will go to Andrew Triggs and Raul Alcantara. Hahn has had a miserable spring and fared poorly in both the majors and minors last season. Following another meltdown against the Dodgers on Saturday, Hahn's rotation chances are slim to none.
Mar 26 - 12:02 AM

Jesse Hahn had nothing in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers, surrendering seven runs (five earned) on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Ouch, just ouch. This makes two consecutive starts in which Hahn has surrendered seven runs. Five of those seven runs on Saturday touched home in a nightmare fourth inning which saw Hahn cough up a grand slam to Andrew Toles and a subsequent solo home run to Justin Turner. In 15 1/3 frames (five appearances) this spring, he is the owner of a dreadful 8.80 ERA.
Mar 25 - 8:00 PM

Jesse Hahn was blasted for seven earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings Sunday in his Cactus League start against the Rockies.

Hahn retried all three batters he faced in an efficient 1-2-3 first inning, but the Rockies struck for five runs on three singles, two walks, and a Charlie Blackmon triple in the bottom of the second. Hahn has a 7.50 ERA in 12 innings (four appearances) this spring. He posted a rough 6.02 ERA in just 46 1/3 innings last year during the regular season.
Mar 19 - 6:27 PM

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.
Feb 26 - 9:41 AM

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.
Feb 21 - 11:33 AM

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.
