Analysis: Hammel notched his third quality start in nine outings but lost his third straight start.

Hammel did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 6.20 ERA and 1.75 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was another dismal night for Hammel, who allowed seven runs over seven innings in his last start against Tampa Bay. The right-hander has served up six home runs in his last four outings.
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.
