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.
Sep 22 - 7:13 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.
Sep 1 - 3:36 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.
Aug 4 - 7:31 PM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that it's possible Jesse Hahn (forearm) "will remain shut down."

The A's said in mid-July that Hahn, who is battling right forearm inflammation, would be shut down for at least a month. Given that they're out of playoff contention, it's possible they'll play it safe and just shut the righty down for the rest of the season. Forearm injuries often wind up leading to Tommy John surgery, and Hahn has already had the operation once.
Aug 2 - 12:13 PM

Jesse Hahn (elbow) won't throw a baseball for the next month after receiving a second opinion on his injured elbow.

The good news, is that his UCL is intact and that no structural damage was found, though he is still dealing with forearm inflammation. Chris Bassitt will continue to hold down the fort in the rotation while Hahn is sidelined.
Jul 17 - 7:18 PM

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.
Jul 11 - 10:28 AM

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.
