Hahn (elbow) has been throwing live batting practice in Arizona, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Hahn is still on the mend from surgery on his right UCL, but he's closing in on a rehab assignment. He remains without a timetable for a return, though he'll likely need a lengthy rehab assignment.
Hahn (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
This is simply procedural, as Hahn is already expected to remain sidelined until June while recovering from surgery he underwent in August to repair the UCL in his right elbow. The right-hander will likely remain at the Royals' spring training facility after camp concludes to continue his rehab.
Hahn (elbow) will likely remain at the Royals' spring training facility after camp concludes and could be on the injured list until June, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
The delayed start to Hahn's season doesn't come as a major surprise after he required surgery in August to repair the UCL in his right elbow. While his procedure wasn't quite on the same level of a Tommy John surgery, it nonetheless requires a rehab period of several months and will put him well behind his fellow pitchers this spring. Hahn should still be able to begin some sort of throwing schedule during camp and could be ready to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment in May.
Hahn (elbow) inked a one-year contract with Kansas City on Thursday.
The deal is reportedly worth $800,000 and Hahn will avoid arbitration. It's unclear whether Hahn will be ready for spring training following surgery to repair his UCL near the end of August, but he didn't pitch in the major leagues last year. He made 14 appearances (13 starts) for the Royals in 2017, accruing a 5.30 ERA and 1.51 WHIP with 55 punchouts over 69.2 frames.
Hahn (elbow) underwent UCL "repair" surgery and he'll need at least six months until returning to action, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic Kansas City reports.
Hahn had been rehabbing from a right UCL strain suffered in March, and he'd progressed to Triple-A Omaha prior to the procedure. If all goes well in his recovery process, Hahn will likely be ready for the beginning of spring training.
Hahn (elbow) transferred his rehab assignment to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. He faced three batters, striking out two and giving up a base hit.
Hahn's rehab assignment had been shut down for more than a week before he returned to action Tuesday, but it's not clear if his absence was the result of a setback or pre-planned rest. In any case, Hahn has now made six appearances in the minors, covering no more than 1.2 innings in any of those outings. The light workloads suggest that Hahn, who has made all but three of his 53 appearances in the big leagues as starter, is likely being groomed for a bullpen role once he's activated from the 60-day disabled list.
Hahn (elbow) made the fifth appearance of his rehab assignment at Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Sunday, tossing 1.2 scoreless innings and conceding no hits and one walk.
The 29-year-old has made 50 of his 53 career big-league appearances as a starter, but Hahn's usage thus far in his rehab suggests the Royals may be prepping him for a multi-inning relief role once he's reinstated from the 60-day disabled list. Hahn, who is working his way back from a UCL sprain suffered in spring training, has tossed no more than 31 pitches in any of his minor-league outings to date. Expect the Royals to keep him on the farm for nearly the entirety of his 30-day rehab window.
Hahn (elbow) will start a rehab assignment with the Royals' Rookie-League club Wednesday.
Hahn missed the first half of the 2018 season due to a right UCL sprain that he suffered in early March. The right-hander will likely require a lengthy rehab assignment in the minors before working his way up to Kansas City. Over 14 appearances (13 starts) for Oakland last year, he logged a 5.30 ERA and 1.51 WHIP.
Hahn (elbow) could begin throwing bullpen sessions in the near future, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Hahn was placed on the 60-day DL due to a right UCL sprain in early March, but he has been able to resume throwing and making gradual progress over the past couple weeks. There was a possibility that he would need Tommy John surgery if his elbow didn't show signs of improvement, though that doesn't seem necessary at the moment. Expect another update once Hahn begins to throw off the mound.
Hahn was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a right ulnar collateral ligament sprain, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.
It's unclear how the injury cropped up or how severe it is, but it will keep Hahn on the shelf until at least the end of May, with Tommy John surgery a possibility if the issue doesn't improve. This is a tough break for the injury-prone 28-year-old, as he was looking to win a back-end spot in the Royals' starting rotation out of camp prior to suffering the injury. The move opens up a roster spot for Jon Jay, who was signed to a one-year deal Tuesday.
Hahn was traded to the Royals from the A's with Heath Fillmyer in exchange for Ryan Buchter and Brandon Moss, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
The 2017 season wasn't too kind to Hahn, who pitched 69.2 innings across 14 games, over which he pieced together a 5.30 ERA and 1.51 WHIP. His control was lacking, as he walked batters at an 8.5 percent rate. However, despite last season's struggles, it's expected that Hahn will compete for a spot in Kansas City's starting rotation during spring training, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.
Manager Bob Melvin said Hahn could be an option out of the bullpen in 2018, though he'll be stretched out as a starter, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Hahn worked primarily as a starter for Oakland last season, starting 13 of his 14 appearances for the big club and posting a 5.51 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across those outings. He'll compete for an Opening Day role in the Athletics' rotation in 2018, though there's a chance he winds up in the bullpen if he struggles as a starter in spring.
Hahn was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Hahn has failed to make it out of the third inning in his last two starts, surrendering a total of 16 runs (15 earned) on 15 hits in the process. The rough patch likely won't eliminate Hahn from consideration for rejoining the rotation in the second half, but for now, the Athletics will wait for him to right the ship in the minors before giving him another look. Hahn's demotion likely means that Paul Blackburn, who tossed six innings and gave up an unearned run in his MLB debut Saturday against the Braves, will stick around in the rotation for at least one more week.
Hahn (3-6) spotted the Astros six runs on nine hits over just two innings in Wednesday's 11-8 loss.
He's now been annihilated for 16 runs (15 earned) over his last three innings -- a stretch that'll sink any pitcher's stat line. Hahn was delivering decent-enough work before this stretch, but even at his best, he's been far from a league-winning fantasy asset. It's still possible to utilize him as a streamer if you pick your spots carefully, but it may be wise to steer clear of Hahn until he bounces back.
Hahn (3-5) was shelled for 10 runs (nine earned) over 2.0 innings in Thursday's loss to the Astros. He allowed 10 hits and three walks while failing to record a strikeout.
Hahn's command was off from the get-go on Thursday as he threw 29 strikes on 57 pitches. When he did throw strikes, the Astros did not miss as they launched a pair of home runs off of Hahn en route to building an insurmountable lead by the time the third inning started. In fairness, Hahn was going against the best lineup in baseball and he had been relatively effective in his previous three starts (16.0 IP, 2.81 ERA, 13 K). Hahn is lined up to have a shot at redemption next time out when he takes the ball Wednesday in Houston.
Hahn (3-4) allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out six batters through five innings during Saturday's win over the Yankees.
Hahn has now allowed just five earned runs through 16 innings over his past three starts, and he's down to a respectable 3.56 ERA and 1.32 WHIP for the campaign. Saturday's outing was especially impressive because New York entered as the highest-scoring team in the majors. Hahn will have another tough test in his next start against the Astros at Oakland Coliseum.
Hahn allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks across five innings during Sunday's no-decision against the Rays. He struck out five.
Hahn cruised into the fifth inning but ran into trouble and allowed three runs on five consecutive two-out hits before closing out the frame. He threw just 93 pitches on the day, but the amount of effort he expended in the fifth prompted manager Bob Melvin to turn to the bullpen in a close game. Hahn has faded a bit after a stellar start to the season, but he has gone at least five innings while allowing three runs or fewer in eight of his last 10 starts to keep his ERA at a respectable 3.56. He will look to continue his string of steady contributions Saturday against the Yankees.
Hahn (2-4) gave up an unearned run on seven hits and a walk over six innings in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jays. He also recorded two strikeouts.
Hahn was activated earlier in the day from a disabled list stint that was prompted by a triceps injury. Although his location was a bit rusty, which led to 92 pitches over his six frames, the right-hander issued just one walk and posted his second start without any earned runs on the season. It was a particularly encouraging outing for the 27-year-old considering he'd given up nine runs (eight earned) over the seven innings encompassing the last two starts before his injury. Hahn also continues to do an outstanding job of keeping the ball down, as he's given up just one home run across 55.2 innings this season. He'll look to put together an equally impressive encore when he takes on the Rays in a road start Sunday.
Hahn (triceps) was activated from the 10-day DL ahead of Tuesday's start against Toronto.
As expected, Hahn will return Tuesday to start opposite Marco Estrada, having made it through a 75-pitch rehab outing and a subsequent bullpen session without any issues. Hahn's elbow was found to be structurally sound in an MRI, but the 27-year-old's long injury history should always be at the forefront of prospective owners' minds. He has posted a 3.81 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 41:18 K:BB over 49.2 innings so far this season.
Hahn (triceps) will return from the disabled list to start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
The Athletics reopened a spot in the rotation for Hahn by demoting Daniel Mengden to Triple-A Nashville earlier Sunday. Hahn has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with the right triceps strain, but the Athletics were comfortable signing off on his return from the DL after he looked strong while covering 5.1 innings in a rehab start for High-A Stockton last Wednesday. With the Athletics playing seven games during the upcoming week, Hahn could line up for a second start next Sunday against the Rays in Tampa.
