Jesse Hahn injury update: Won't pick up baseball for at least a month

New, comments

The Athletics starting pitcher will still need rehab time after that before he returns this season, if he does.

Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Jesse Hahn will not pick up a baseball for at least a month, he informed beat reporters before Friday's game against the Minnesota Twins. Hahn received a second opinion from physicians in Los Angeles:

It was initially hoped that Hahn would be shut down for just two weeks before beginning a rehab program to return before season's end, but even that is in doubt. Hahn has made 16 starts for the A's and has a 3.35 ERA.

The A's are currently operating with an eight-man bullpen as the team does not need a fifth starter until July 25. Chris Bassitt, who has made three spot starts in recent weeks, will be recalled at that point.

This and that

A previous edition of this post quoted a tweet that purported to attribute the odds of Sean Doolittle returning this season to manager Bob Melvin. This could not be confirmed, and so the quote has been removed.
