South Kitsap High School graduate Jason Hammel has not pitched since leaving his Sept. 11 outing with a right knee injury. But Orioles manager Buck Showalter told the Baltimore Sun he is hopeful Hammel can return before the end of the season.
“Oh, sure I'm optimistic, we just haven't had anything where, ‘Hey, this feels pretty good, let's start throwing yet,’ ” Showalter told the newspaper. “We haven't gotten the discomfort out of there yet.”
In 20 starts this season, Hammel has a 8-6 record with a 3.43 ERA. His 8.6 strikeouts per nine innings is a career-best.
