BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Jarrod Parker suffered a setback coming back (probably too soon) from his second Tommy John surgery. Jesse Hahn, another A's pitcher who has had TJ surgery, has been shut down indefinitely with forearm inflammation. Am I wrong to think neither of these guys is going to have another start for the A's?
(Jeff from San Francisco)
I don't think you're wrong there. The Jarrod Parker setback hurts the most because anytime you try to come back like that and it backfires it stings badly. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-07-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Wow, you don't think Jesse Hahn makes another start ever for the A's? So is the forearm inflammation just the prelude to a second Tommy John surgery?
(Josh from DC)
If you're an A's fan and you're worried about Hahn making another start I think that's a valid concern considering the inflammation and the rest option the A's have gone with. Best case scenario is that he makes a few starts at the tail end of the season but I don't have all that much faith after words like "elbow inflammation", "second Tommy John", and "Jesse Hahn" are thrown together. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Jesse Hahn, Alex Wood, or Drew Hutchison?
(Shawn from Couch)
Hutchison for me. I really like that kid. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Shane Greene, Jesse Hahn, TJ House, Rubby DeLaRosa, Anthony DeScalafani, Jimmy Nelson, Zach McAllister, Trevor Bauer. If one of these is a top 20 pitcher this year, who is it?
(Matt from NJ)
Gimme Bauer in that scenario. It assumes a huge leap in development, but he has the tools to make that dream a possibility. I also like the upsides of Rubby, Hahn, and Desclafani. (Doug Thorburn)
2015-01-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)How do you see the A's rotation sorting itself out? Who gets the last two slots between Jesse Chavez, Jesse Hahn, Sean Nolin, Kendall Graveman, and Chris Bassitt?
(Dan from San Francisco)
I would give the leads to Hahn and Nolin, though I could see Nolin getting beat out by one of the last two during camp. The A's know that they need to monitor Chavez's innings, so I think that it makes sense to keep him in a swingman role until the need arises. (Doug Thorburn)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)How do you see the A's rotation battle sorting out between Drew Pomeranz, Jesse Chavez, Jesse Hahn, Sean Nolin, Kendall Graveman, and Chris Bassitt?
(Dave from Chicago)
I'll bet they all end up starting at some point. The A's have two guys penciled in right (Gray and Kazmir)? That leaves these six guys for four spots, but only eight total starters. Most teams use at least eight starters over the course of a year, if not more. I don't know who will get the first shot out of spring training, but it doesn't matter much. You'll be glad to have this kind of depth at some point in July or August. (Jeff Moore)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Jesse Hahn? Can he stick as a starter?
(Jeff from Bay Area)
I'm coming around slowly, but I'm not quite there yet. His two-pitch combo fits better in relief for me but his ability to move the fastball around may allow him to carve out some time in the rotation.


I need to sign off for a bit, but I will log back in when I get home and do some bonus chatting later tonight. Feel free to pile the questions up in the queue and I'll tackle as many as I can later tonight. (Mark Anderson)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nate Karns or Jesse Hahn?
(Danny from Boston)
Looks like the details of that Rays-Nats swap are coming in, so we've got a few Qs on that front.

This is a fun one because the Rays just traded Jesse Hahn (and Alex Torres) for Logan Forsythe and a grab bag of prospects a month ago, and now they've traded Jose Lobaton (and a grab bag of prospects) for Nick Karns.

Hahn and Karns are similar in a few senses: both were college arms, both have injury histories, both have two good pitches, and so on. Even their outlooks are a lot alike: possible MOR arm or impact bullpen guy. I guess it comes down to the medicals, and without knowing which is better, I'll just call them evenish. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give me 5 SP prospects you are higher on than industry? I really like Eddie Butler, despite Coors looming.
(JoJo from SD)
Joe Ross, Chris Anderson, Jesse Hahn, Edwin Diaz, Miguel Almonte. I like Butler too (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Vegas over/under number of number 2 or better starters from this group: Lewis Thorpe, Julio Urias, Hunter Harvey, Edwin Diaz, Alex Reyes, Jesse Hahn, Steven Matz, Adalberto Mejia.
(huggirl from Joisey)
From that group, one pitcher will develop into a number two starter (or better). I was tempted to say 0. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Since all my workers are distracted from working by your chat today, who will now be the top Rays prospect given the graduation of Wil Myers, Chris Archer, and injuries to Taylor Guerreri and Hak-Ju Lee?
(Da Boss from Bossland)
Good question. As you mentioned, graduations and injuries have killed them at the top. Of course, that's a good thing with the graduations, as Myers and Archer have played a key role (along with other guys like Torres) in the Rays contending this season. It might still be Lee. Jesse Hahn is up there if they can keep him healthy. He's not going to be no. 1 in their system this offseason, but Ryne Stanek was a great value pick with upside, I thought, and he's absolutely one to watch. (Jason Cole)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hi again ZM, Deep dynasty league... What are your thoughts on Preston Tucker, Jesse Hahn or Eddie Butler? thanks again awesome stuff.
(Andy B from WI)
Eddie Butler has an impact arm I would get him on my team if I could. Jesse Hahn has two potential plus pitches, but has injury history and I wonder what it will be going forward. I'm not on the Preston Tucker wagon. (Zach Mortimer)
2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Would you rank: Jesse Hahn, Edwin Escobar, Carlos Contreras, and Ross Stripling. Overall thoughts on them?
(boneil33 from Boston)
Escobar: really doing well with FB/CH combination
Hahn: could be a starter spoke to other issues previously
Stripling: solid reliever
Contreras: solid reliever (Zach Mortimer)
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)I follow the Rays high-a affiliate because i live in Charlotte, and was very impressed with Jesse Hahn's line last night. can you tell me more about him and what is his potential?
(kyle n. from Charlotte)
I own Hahn in a dynasty league, Kyle, and have been intrigued by him since he was drafted, but our prospect staff can offer a lot more details about his upside. Check out today's Minor League Update (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=20274) from Zach Mortimer for more info. (Daniel Rathman)
