Wednesday's quality start, albeit against the Reds, dampened the dumpster fire that was Hammel's season. Since May 22, he's 2-2 with a 2.16 ERA, and 28 strikeouts in 31 2/3 innings. He still can't be trusted, but is slated to take on Texas for his next start; he struck out 10 over 5 1/3 innings when he faced them on May 27, if owners in daily leagues are feeling daring.
