    Despite rumors to the contrary the Cubs were, in fact, outbid for Masahiro Tanaka, so now Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that they’ve decided to add free agent Jason Hammel to the starting rotation. Hammel had a career-year for the Orioles in 2012, but resumed being a back-of-the-rotation starter with a 4.97 ERA and 96/48…

    From FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi comes word that the Cubs, Pirates, Royals and Braves are among the teams with interest in free agent Jason Hammel.

    ESPN’s Buster Olney reports that free agent right-hander Jason Hammel is looking for a three- or four-year deal in free agency. This is an excellent market for starting pitching, with Phil Hughes and Scott Feldman both recently receiving three-year deals, but it’s not that good. While Hammel was one of the Orioles’ best starters in…

According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, the San Francisco front office has requested to view the medical records of free agent right-hander Jason Hammel — an indication that the interest level is pretty serious.

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    Tampa Bay Rays v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hadn’t homered since August 28, which created a bit of tension as Miguel Cabrera attempts to win another Triple Crown. Cabrera, though, has played once since the 30th, so the four-homer gap between the two remained until tonight, when Davis blasted #48 off of White Sox starter John Danks in…

    Out since late July with a strained forearm, Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel is scheduled to throw off flat ground twice before advancing to a mound session Friday.

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Red Sox DH David Ortiz went 4-for-4 with 2 RBI in his first game after destroying the telephone in the visitor’s dugout at Camden Yards last night.

  12. Chris Davis hits 36th homer of season, now on pace for 61

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:20 PM EST

    Orioles Rays Baseball

    It seems like Orioles first baseman Chris Davis homers on every day that ends in “y”. This afternoon against Blue Jays starter Todd Redmond, Davis went deep for the 36th time this season and for the third consecutive game. The Orioles lost 7-3 despite the best efforts of Davis as starter Jason Hammel allowed six…

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

  14. By the way, the Red Sox still think the Blue Jays are cheaters, too

    May 3, 2013, 1:44 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Toronto Maple Leafs

    While Dirk Hayhurst and Jack Morris have chimed in, none of this “Clay Buchholz is cheating” talk is coming from Blue Jays players or management. And it probably won’t. The Blue Jays don’t want to go accusing someone of cheating and then have their own dirty laundry aired. The Red Sox, for instance, still seem…

    Still basking in the afterglow from their surprising 2012 run, the Orioles have locked manager Buck Showalter and executive VP of baseball operations Dan Duquette through 2018.

    Alex Rodriguez

    The Yankees decided it wasn’t in their best interests to play Alex Rodriguez against Jason Hammel in Friday’s Game 5. So why on earth would he start against any of the right-handers the Tigers will throw in the ALCS?
