Hammel struck out two, ending the game with a 4.81 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel was in line for his first victory since June 19 until Kelvin Herrera allowed a go-ahead two-run homer to Mikie Mahtook in the top of the ninth. The right-hander still turned in a solid performance he'll try to replicate in a road matchup with the Tigers on Monday.

Hammel struck out seven, ending the game with a 5.04 ERA and 1.50 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was technically a quality start, but Hammel has been putting way too many runners on base lately. He's allowed 22 hits and eight walks in 16 1/3 innings over his last three starts.
|July 2 10:07 AM PT11:07 AM MT12:07 PM CT1:07 PM ET13:07 ET17:07 GMT1:07 10:07 AM MST12:07 PM EST12:37 PM VEN21:07 UAE12:07 PM CT-Jason Hammel fell to 4-7, allowing seven runs - six earned - on nine hits and two walks in 5.1 innings, as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Minnesota Twins 10-5 on Saturday. Hammel struck out five, ending the game with a 5.08 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel had entered the matchup on a roll, compiling a 2-0 record and a 2.10 ERA over his previous four starts and yielding two runs or less in each of those outings. The journeyman won't be a recommended option, though, when he next faces the red-hot Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday.
|June 26 10:50 AM PT11:50 AM MT12:50 PM CT1:50 PM ET13:50 ET17:50 GMT1:50 10:50 AM MST12:50 PM EST1:20 PM VEN21:50 UAE12:50 PM CT-Jason Hammel allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 on Sunday. Hammel struck out six, ending the game with a 4.75 ERA and 1.44 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: An elevated pitch count prevented Hammel from notching a fifth straight quality start, though he remained unbeaten during his turnaround June. The right-hander ends the month 3-0 with a 2.51 ERA in five starts.
|June 19 8:53 PM PT9:53 PM MT10:53 PM CT11:53 PM ET23:53 ET3:53 GMT11:53 8:53 PM MST10:53 PM EST11:23 PM VEN7:53 UAE (+1)10:53 PM CT-Jason Hammel improved to 4-6, allowing two runs on seven hits in 7.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-2 on Monday.

Analysis: Hammel is 3-0 with a 2.30 ERA in his last four starts after going 1-5 with a 6.18 mark in his first 10 outings.
|June 14 4:40 PM PT5:40 PM MT6:40 PM CT7:40 PM ET19:40 ET23:40 GMT7:40 4:40 PM MST6:40 PM EST7:10 PM VEN3:40 UAE (+1)6:40 PM CT-Jason Hammel improved to 3-6, allowing one run on eight hits and one walk in 6.2 innings, as the Kansas City Royals defeated the San Francisco Giants 7-2 on Wednesday.

|June 9 10:33 AM PT11:33 AM MT12:33 PM CT1:33 PM ET13:33 ET17:33 GMT1:33 10:33 AM MST12:33 PM EST1:03 PM VEN21:33 UAE12:33 PM CT-Jason Hammel allowed one run on four hits in 7.0 innings as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Houston Astros 6-1 on Thursday. Hammel struck out four, ending the game with a 5.43 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel wasn't thrilled about being removed after 85 pitches, and the bullpen let him down. The only run he allowed came on a balk in the sixth inning when he made a move to throw to first and the ball slipped out of his glove. Thursday's outing matched his longest of the season and was his second straight quality start.
|June 3 3:12 PM PT4:12 PM MT5:12 PM CT6:12 PM ET18:12 ET22:12 GMT6:12 3:12 PM MST5:12 PM EST5:42 PM VEN2:12 UAE (+1)5:12 PM CT-Jason Hammel improved to 2-6, allowing three runs on five hits in 6.2 innings, as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Cleveland Indians 12-5 on Saturday. Hammel struck out seven, ending the game with a 5.93 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel gave up two homers in the second, but he retired 15 of his next 17 batters before leaving. Both of the right-hander's wins this season have been against Cleveland, with the last coming May 5.
|May 30 9:19 AM PT10:19 AM MT11:19 AM CT12:19 PM ET12:19 ET16:19 GMT0:19 9:19 AM MST11:19 AM EST11:49 AM VEN20:19 UAE11:19 AM CT-Jason Hammel allowed four runs on four hits and four walks in 4.1 innings as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Detroit Tigers 10-7 on Monday. Hammel struck out two, ending the game with a 6.18 ERA and 1.71 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel is 0-3 with a 6.94 ERA in his last four starts and seemingly isn't comfortable being back in the AL.
|May 24 8:25 PM PT9:25 PM MT10:25 PM CT11:25 PM ET23:25 ET3:25 GMT11:25 8:25 PM MST10:25 PM EST10:55 PM VEN7:25 UAE (+1)10:25 PM CT-Jason Hammel fell to 1-6, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals lost to the New York Yankees 3-0 on Wednesday.

Analysis: Hammel notched his third quality start in nine outings but lost his third straight start.
|May 17 9:37 AM PT10:37 AM MT11:37 AM CT12:37 PM ET12:37 ET16:37 GMT0:37 9:37 AM MST11:37 AM EST12:07 PM VEN20:37 UAE11:37 AM CT-Jason Hammel fell to 1-5, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals lost to the New York Yankees 7-1 on Tuesday.

|May 10 7:33 PM PT8:33 PM MT9:33 PM CT10:33 PM ET22:33 ET2:33 GMT10:33 7:33 PM MST9:33 PM EST10:03 PM VEN6:33 UAE (+1)9:33 PM CT-Jason Hammel fell to 1-4, allowing seven runs - six earned - on 13 hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 12-1 on Wednesday. Hammel struck out six, ending the game with a 5.97 ERA and 1.76 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After tossing six innings of one-run, three-hit ball to defeat Cleveland on Friday, Hammel reverted back to the mediocre pitcher he's been much of this season. With a matchup against the power-hitting Yankees next on tap, he isn't a recommended option.
|May 6 9:06 PM PT10:06 PM MT11:06 PM CT12:06 AM ET0:06 ET4:06 GMT12:06 9:06 PM MST11:06 PM EST11:36 PM VEN8:06 UAE11:06 PM CT-Jason Hammel improved to 1-3, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Cleveland Indians 3-1 on Friday. Hammel struck out six, ending the game with a 5.53 ERA and 1.70 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel (1-3) ended a six-start winless streak dating to Sept. 19, when he defeated Cincinnati for the Chicago Cubs. Hammel, who left the World Series champions as a free agent to sign a $16 million, two-year deal with Kansas City, failed to get out of the fourth inning in his previous two starts
|Apr. 30 5:05 PM PT6:05 PM MT7:05 PM CT8:05 PM ET20:05 ET0:05 GMT8:05 5:05 PM MST7:05 PM EST7:35 PM VEN4:05 UAE (+1)7:05 PM CT-Jason Hammel fell to 0-3, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks in 3.0 innings, as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Sunday. Hammel struck out five, ending the game with a 6.65 ERA and 1.94 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hammel's dismal season got worse Sunday as he failed to complete five innings for the third time in four starts. Hammel allowed his first home runs in 21 2/3 innings this season, but has surrendered 29 hits in that span.
|Apr. 13 2:01 PM PT3:01 PM MT4:01 PM CT5:01 PM ET17:01 ET21:01 GMT5:01 2:01 PM MST4:01 PM EST4:31 PM VEN1:01 UAE (+1)4:01 PM CT-Hammel took the loss Wednesday against Oakland after being reached for four runs and seven hits over 4 2/3 innings.
Analysis: Hammel's fantasy value reached its peak when he won 15 games for the eventual World Series champion Cubs last season. The 33-year-old appears nothing more than a stopgap option on a Kansas City team that hasn't resembled a contender thus far, so owners may be better off looking elsewhere.
|Apr. 6 4:50 PM PT5:50 PM MT6:50 PM CT7:50 PM ET19:50 ET23:50 GMT7:50 4:50 PM MST6:50 PM EST7:20 PM VEN3:50 UAE (+1)6:50 PM CT-Hammel gave up three runs, six hits and four walks in five innings while not receiving a decision Thursday against the Twins.
Analysis: Hammel began his 12th major league season, with his sixth different team. He signed a $16 million, two-year contract in February with the Royals, who needed a replacement in the rotation following the death of Yordano Ventura in a Dominican Republic car crash. He won a career-high 15 games for the world champion Cubs last season but was left off the postseason roster.
|Feb. 6 12:24 PM PT1:24 PM MT2:24 PM CT3:24 PM ET15:24 ET20:24 GMT4:24 1:24 PM MST3:24 PM EST3:54 PM VEN0:24 UAE (+1)2:24 PM CT-The Royals have agreed with Hammel on a two-year, $16 million contract.
Analysis: The veteran right-hander will take the rotation spot of the late Yordano Ventura after winning a career-high 15 games for the world champion Cubs last season. Hammel was left off Chicago's postseason roster, however, and had a $12 million option declined by the club in November. The 34-year-old is 84-87 with a 4.42 ERA over 11 major league seasons and has previous American League stints with Tampa Bay, Baltimore and Oakland.
