Royals RHP Jason Hammel moves around, turns season around

Royals General Manager Dayton Moore suddenly had a gaping hole in the rotation after the death of Yordano Ventura in a vehicle accident on January 22nd in the Dominican Republic. Jason Hammel was unsigned after his former club, the Chicago Cubs, captured the 2016 World Series Crown. Moore promptly signed the right-handed pitcher to a two-year $16 million contract on February 8.

After a slow start in 2017, Jason Hammel said he has “absolutely” turned his season around.

“One hundred percent it’s changed for sure,” Hammel said.
