Latest Update Jesse Hahn could be nearing his innings pitched cap Mon Jul, 28, 12:36 PM
Boasts an excellent fastball, strikeout ability (thanks to his heater, plus over-the-top curve and solid changeup) and a very projectable 6-5 frame.
Flaws: : Has already endured an elbow reconstruction, which is a concern. Also, he needs to find a consistent release point in his delivery. His slider needs more work, too.
Hahn has now thrown 87 innings between Double-A and the majors, so we should be looking at roughly six or seven starts depending on how deep he goes into games. That should take him through the end of August, so while fantasy owners will lose him for the final month, you're still getting strong work from him and plenty of advanced notice that a replacement is needed.Analyst: Howard Bender
Hahn has able to take care of business once again on Friday, as the Padres youngster earned his sixth win of the season in first eight career starts. Although he has been very impressive in his young career, he has been rather lucky up to this point, with opponents hitting .182 against him, not to mention his walk rate is a little high (19 BB through 46.2 IP) which is no encouraging. However, until he starts to fade Hahn is a worthy fantasy option in all but the shallowest of leagues while pitching at a high level. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Hahn was sent down at the All Star break to continue his regular throwing schedule and Friday against the Braves is now his regular turn in the rotation. Prior to the break, Hahn made seven starts and posted a 2.21 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP and a 47:16 K:BB over 40.2 innings. He is definitely a recommended starter, but just beware of the innings cap towards the end of the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Hahn had been optioned to Triple-A following his last start on June 11 in order to keep on the same pitching schedule. Through seven starts, Hahn is 5-2 with a 2.21 ERA and 1.06 WHIP while maintaining a 47:16 K:BB rate over 40.2 innings. There is no way opponents will continue to hit just .185 against him the rest of the way, so regression is certainly in store, but even if his production was to dip he has show enough to warrant ownership in all but the shallowest of leagues no back in the big leagues.
