Jason Hammel

The magic of the potato chips has worn off. The year Jason Hammel has been fantastic. However, the last five starts for the right-handed pitcher may have put him in the bullpen for the postseason. Hammel is 1-4 with an 8.61 ERA during the last four weeks. That one win was at Wrigley.

We know Hammel can do. We all want for him to perform well. And, the Chicago Cubs will need him in the postseason. It is possible that Manager Joe Maddon would start Hammel at Wrigley in game five of the World Series given the 2-3-2 format. And, Hammel 9-1 at his home ballpark.
