Jason Hammel

Postby deerayfan072 » Sun Apr 13, 2008 11:58 am

Very interesting to start the season. He looked horrid in ST and in his 2 starts this season he has gotten hit very hard in the first 2 innings, but settles down and pitches well. I have watched both his starts and he has looked very good from the 2nd inning on. Against the Orioles he made some of them look very bad with his pitches. Is this just a fluke or can he be a decent starter in the league? Trade bait? :-?

Hopefully trade bait.

We need more time to see, but if he can get through the first few innings who might be a solid option for another team.

Fluke. His stuff is not that good. He could be a solid MR, but doesn't have the stuff nor the endurance to be a starter. As far as trade bait, I doubt it. I can't see many teams paying for his arm unless they think they can make a 8th inning man out of him, but his mental makeup leads me to think he couldn't handle the 8th inning.

that is what I thought. The MR thing doesn't seem like a possibility to me because of how bad he is in the first 2 innings. :-o
