Cubs | Jason Hammel pitches well Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:20:07 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel allowed one run on four hits in 7 1/3 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, May 24, to pick up his sixth win of the season. He struck out four batters and walked three during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his nine starts this season and currently has a 2.17 ERA. He is scheduled to face the Los Angeles Dodgers in his next start and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Cubs | Jason Hammel suffers first defeat

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:53:09 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel dropped to 5-1 after losing to the Milwaukee Brewers in his start Thursday, May 19. He recorded six innings, issuing a season-high four runs on five hits and two walks. He also added seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the off outing, it's hard not to be impressed with what Hammel has done this season, as he now owns a 2.31 ERA through eight starts to go with that shiny record of his. This actually falls in line with a recent trend, as Hammel has been considerably better in the first half of the season over the past few years. In 2015, for instance, the 11-year veteran carried a 2.86 ERA and 0.95 WHIP into the All-Star break. He's worth riding at the moment as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Braun (back) and Jonathan Lucroy are out of the lineup, which makes Hammel an even better DFS option today. Start him.

Cubs | Jason Hammel silences the Reds again

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 15:06:25 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel tossed six scoreless innings against the Cincinnati Reds for the second time in three starts Sunday, April 24, and has yielded a total of two runs in four outings this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel, who has worked exactly six innings in each of his starts, yielded three hits and struck out seven Sunday after blanking the Reds on April 14. The 33-year-old has been nearly untouchable thus far and should be primed for another stellar outing Saturday when he is scheduled to face the Atlanta Braves.

Cubs | Jason Hammel churns out gem

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 11:12:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel registered his second quality start of the year in as many tries Thursday, April 14, versus the Cincinnati Reds. He tossed six shutout innings, scattering four hits, four walks and striking out three.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel is out to a nice start in 2016, having allowed just that one run in 12 total innings. Generally, he's been better in the season's first half throughout his career, especially the past two seasons when he posted significantly better numbers compared to after the All-Star break. With that in mind, he could be consistently useful up until the Midsummer Classic, at the very least.

Cubs | Jason Hammel beat up by M's

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 20:18:20 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel was destroyed by the Seattle Mariners in Cactus League action Sunday, March 27, to the tune of eight hits and nine runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Thankfully, the regular season hasn't started yet. Disregard this outing on draft day. Hammel continues to use his slider more with solid results, and he's a nice end-game pick to bolster your rotation depth.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber may catch Jason Hammel

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 09:50:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF/C Kyle Schwarber could be the personal catcher for SP Jason Hammel, according to manager Joe Maddon. Hammel was "extremely pleased" to work with Schwarber last season, and would "welcome it 100%" if that's how it plays out.

Fantasy Tip: This is wonderful news for Schwarber owners, as it would ensure his catcher eligibility in fantasy, in addition to his regular duties in the outfield. Already, Schwarber is a trendy pick to break out this season, so this news bumps up his stock even a bit further. As for Hammel, this could be a boost also, if it ensures steady pitching for the veteran right-hander. Hammel was outstanding in the first half last season, but struggled mightily following the All-Star break. Having a personal catcher he feels comfortable with could help him sustain consistency.

Cubs | Jason Hammel, Kyle Hendricks favored

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:22:54 -0800

Chicago Cubs SPs Jason Hammel and Kyle Hendricks have the upper hand for the final two starting rotation spots, according to manager Joe Maddon.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel and Hendricks both are upside picks in the latter portions of deep mixed drafts. Hammel's success is tied to his health, while Hendrick's lack of an overpowering arsenal will make him a sleeper.
