Latest Update Padres recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Double-A San Antonio. Sat Aug, 30, 05:24 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 had been sent down to San Antonio to limit his innings, and will work out of the bullpen for the remainder of this season, as the Padres want to limit their young pitcher's innings the rest of the way. While he has been great as a whole this season, he had begun to tire, allowing 11 runs over his last 16.1 innings before being sent down. Hahn doesn't offer much value for the remainder of this season, but could be very valuable next season if he can repeat his 2014 success. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Wow. That is shocking, especially since he was pitching quite well this season. Believe they made this move so they could limit his innings pitched. Feel free to drop him in redraft leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Hahn has been great for the Padres this season going 7-3 with a 2.96 ERA. He has only pitched 70 innings so far this year in the Majors but had pitched 40 innings for Triple-A before being called up.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
After a pair of mediocre starts, Hahn comes up with this ugliness and fantasy owners are wondering if his time is up. He's now failed to make it out of the sixth inning for three-straight starts and while his strikeout rate was never that big, it has dipped a bit here as well. His next start comes against Arizona, so he should definitely be active based on the match-up. Should he fail again, then yes, it's probably all she wrote.Analyst: Howard Bender
