Hammel put together a strong outing on Thursday, allowing only one run in six innings against the Rangers. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out five.
After a tough start to his career with the A's, Hammel has been very effective recently. Since the start of August, Hammel has appeared in nine games (eight starts), posting a 2.49 ERA in 50.2 innings with 42 strikeouts. However, he only has two wins due to the A's extreme struggles on offense in that time. Hammel will be a free agent heading into 2015, and he should get a good amount of attention on the market after finishing this season with a 3.47 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.
