News: Hammel will remain in the A's starting rotation for now, the Bay Area News Group's John Hickey reports. Impact: He is 0-4 with a 9.53 ERA since joining the A's, and will be given at least one more opportunity Tuesday against the Rays, as the team thinks it's just as simple as Hammel getting the ball down in the zone. If he continues to hang sliders up over the plate, the A's are not without competent options to replace Hammel, and have even been mentioned as a candidate to acquire Jon Lester from Boston.(RotoWire, )

News: Hammel lost his third straight start Friday, giving up four runs - three eraned - and seven hits over 5 2-3 innings in a 4-1 defeat at Texas.

News: Hammel tossed 5.2 innings versus the Rangers on Friday night, allowing four runs (three earned), seven hits and two walks while striking out three in a 4-1 loss. Impact: Though this was obviously an improvement upon the beating he took at the hands of the Orioles last time out, Hammel is still yet to give the A's a strong effort since coming over from Chicago three weeks ago. Through three starts for the AL-West leaders, Hammel has posted a 7.11 ERA, 2.05 WHIP and 8:7 K:BB ratio across 12.2 innings. He is slated to be back on the mound Wednesday in Houston.(RotoWire, )

News: Hammel struggled Saturday, allowing five runs on six hits with two walks, two strikeouts, and two home runs allowed against the Orioles. Impact: Hammel was hit hard by his former team, who obviously knew the book on him. Former teammates Adam Jones and J.J. Hardy crushed homers, and Hammel is now 0-2 since joining the Athletics.(RotoWire, )
