Hammel has second straight solid outing, but A’s lose to Twins

While not an ideal way to introduce himself to a new team and fan base, Jason Hammel said he believed his first four winless starts were “a couple bumps and bruises.” The A’s did, too, or they likely wouldn’t have traded for Hammel – acquiring him in the deal that also brought Jeff Samardzija from the Chicago Cubs – or stuck with him during his rough start, with manager Bob Melvin professing belief in Hammel’s “track record.”
