Notes on Jason Hammel

Jason Hammel threw a bullpen today, and it went okay according to Buck Showalter. Hammel will rest for two days and then throw another bullpen session that includes around 40 pitches, according to Rock Kubatko.

Hammel’s likely return to the Orioles in 2-3 weeks increases their playoff chances. If you’re looking to bet on the Orioles, check out this website for Sportsbook reviews and more sports information.

Hammel had been the team’s best starter before going down with a knee injury.

In 109.1 innings with the Orioles this season, Hammel has put up 2.8 fWAR and strick out 106 while walking just 39 hitters.

Most of his numbers are career bests.
