Cubs | Jason Hammel starting Sunday

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:24:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel is starting against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: While his win total sits at just three, Hammel ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has a 2.98 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 over 60 1/3 innings through nine starts. And though he has pitched extremely well, the Royals are an admirable opponent. FantasyScore players should view Hammel as a high-risk, high-reward start in all formats Sunday.

Cubs | Jason Hammel has nail issue

Fri, 29 May 2015 11:08:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel (hand) has been hampered by a fingernail issue on his right hand.

Fantasy Tip: This could be an issue for Hammel ($7,200, 14.4% of cap), as any issue with a fingernail could hamper gripping the ball, releasing it, holding on properly, etc. The best thing to do is leave Hammel sidelined until he is 100 percent.

Cubs | Jason Hammel has success vs. Brewers

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:06:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel has a 5-0 record with a 2.20 ERA over seven career starts against the Milwaukee Brewers. Hammel is starting against Milwaukee Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: In his last start, Hammel ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) allowed three earned runs on five hits and a walk with four punchouts through six innings against the Brewers. He admitted to pitching with a broken fingernail on the middle finger of his right hand and never had real command of his fastball during the start. At his cap hit, Hammel has nice upside, and he should be viewed as a potential source of cap relief for FantasyScore players, albeit one with a degree of risk.

Cubs | Jason Hammel pitches well against MIL

Thu, 07 May 2015 16:52:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel is 5-0 with a 2.20 ERA in seven career starts against the Milwaukee Brewers, who he faces Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has allowed at least three earned runs in four of his five starts this season. However, the Brewers rank 13th in the National League in OPS (.630) and have the third most strikeouts in the NL with 232. Hammel profiles as a risk/reward play at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Jason Hammel pitched with a cracked nail

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:39:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel (finger) is expected to make his next start after pitching against the Milwaukee Brewers with a cracked fingernail on his right middle finger Sunday, May 3. Hammel's next start is projected for Friday, May 8, against the Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) fastball command was noticeably off Sunday, so perhaps the fingernail played a part in the location problems. While had an excellent outing in his previous start against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Hammel needs to string together a few plus-showings before he can be relied on with confidence in any fantasy format.

Cubs | Jason Hammel has Brewers number

Sun, 03 May 2015 07:13:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel will start against a familiar opponent Sunday, May 3, when the Cubs play the Milwaukee Brewers. Hammel is one of two active pitchers with a 5-0 record against the Brewers. San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is the only pitcher, with at least five starts against Milwaukee, to have a better ERA than Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Hammel ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has 23 strikeouts through 25 and one-third innings this season, and he is worthy of strong FantasyScore consideration, while offering some cap relief at the most important position.
