Oakland A’s: Are the recent bullpen additions worthwhile?

It’s late August. Clearly, the 54-70 Oakland A’s aren’t an October ball club. Don’t expect this to change anytime soon, given Oakland’s current roster—something A’s management continues to change up, in accordance with their endless, uphill rebuilding process. The A’s’ acquisition of two new pitchers this past week – Chris Hatcher from the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Sam Moll from the...

Dodgers agree to 1-year deal with pitcher Chris Hatcher

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers have agreed to a one-year deal with pitcher Chris Hatcher, avoiding arbitration. The right-hander earned $552,500 last season, when he was 3-5 with a 3.69 ERA. Five other Dodgers have filed for arbitration, including closer Kenley Jansen. The others are catcher Yasmani Grandal, infielder Justin Turner, outfielder Scott Van Slyke and pitcher Luis Avilan...

Chris Hatcher’s resurgence due to a new cutter and better pitch selection

Chris Hatcher‘s ERA on June 17 was 6.38, he had just been placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury, and fans had already been calling for him to be designated for over a month. Season over, try to do better next year, right? A funny thing happened, though. On Aug. 14, Hatcher was activated from the 60-day DL to much moaning and groaning, and all he’s done is work his way...

If You Squint Hard Enough, Chris Hatcher Looks Better

I’m not sure there’s really enough here to devote a full post to; in fact, I’m certain there’s not. However, the only thing I’m more sure of than that is that no one wants to stare at a recap of the Dodgers being no-hit all day long. So, let’s not do that. Let’s do this instead: After two rough months to start his Dodger career and two more sidelined due to injury, Chris Hatcher...

Chris Hatcher’s release point cause of perceived struggles

People have said Chris Hatcher is bad because of his 6.91 ERA. People have said Chris Hatcher is good because of his 2.21 FIP. Guess what: You’re both right. Hatcher has been one of the more polarizing players on the 2015 Dodgers’ roster, and he really isn’t as bad as his ERA makes him out to be, but he hasn’t been as good as his FIP would lead you to believe. According to FanGraphs...

The Los Angeles Dodgers new strength…the bullpen?

During the offseason, I kept trying to show how improved the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen would be. My main points involved Chris Hatcher, Joel Peralta, J.P. Howell and the departure of Brian Wilson and Chris Perez. While Wilson’s and Perez’s absences from the bullpen have undoubtably helped, the three relievers I was most excited about have been a disappointment. Yet, with all the...

Let’s Get To Know Chris Hatcher

The headlines of last week’s Marlins-Dodgers-Angels swap aren’t focused on the bit players the Dodgers got back from the Marlins. The main focus on the trade is on Dee Gordon, Howie Kendrick, and Andrew Heaney, and understandably so. But, as we’ve seen in previous posts, the other players received from Miami are pretty interesting, too. So, let’s get to know Chris Hatcher, the relief...

Murray State Head Coach Chris Hatcher Previews Louisville

Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher met with the media earlier this week to preview Saturday’s game against Louisville. First thing first, I think we can all agree that Coach Hatcher’s accent and voice is as good as any coach that Louisville will face this season. Also, he certainly seems to have a ton of respect for Bobby Petrino. Here is Hatcher’s full press conference.

Hatcher finds success at new position

The Florida Marlins' Chris Hatcher became the first player in 75 years Saturday to debut as a pitcher the year after debuting as a catcher. The last man to do it was Art Doll for the Boston Braves in 1936, MLB.com reported. Hatcher, 26, struck out Kosuke Fukodome on a 94mph fastball to complete a perfect eighth inning as the Marlins beat the Chicago Cubs 13-3 at Wrigley Field....
