by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"If it’s a fair value, like I have said all along, I would gladly sign," Zimmermann said. "But at the end of the day, it’s gotta be something that’s fair and if it’s not, then I’ll be moving on.

"I’m a National for one year, for this upcoming season, and we’ll see if it’s a fair, if we can come up with something that’s fair for both sides, then we’ll sign the deal. At the end of the day, it’s gotta be fair."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a little exciting to know that there are other teams that are asking about me," he told SiriusXM Radio. "That's kind of the thing if you do get traded. Yeah, it's a little bittersweet because you're leaving the team and your friends, and really the Mets have been like a family to me. But the other, flip side is, hey, somebody wants you. Not to say the Mets don't. I have no hard feelings either way. Like I said, I understand what it is."

Phillies' Hamels seems resigned to pitching for new team next season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels seems resigned to pitching for a new team in 2015, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

"It's unfortunate, but all great teams have that season or drought for a couple of years and then they start to rebuild," Hamels said during an interview Sunday with MLB Network Radio. "I know I'm young enough to be able to go out there and play, and I love playing in the city of Philadelphia. Nothing but the best. The fans have been great; the organization has been great to me. But I do understand that baseball is a game that will go on, even after I'm done playing.

"So you have to put that in perspective and not really be too down about it. It's something, where if it does happen, I completely understand. Hopefully there will be a time when I can come back before my career is over. But, at the same time, it's a business. It's baseball."

Hamels, who has been mentioned heavily in trade rumors, said his perfect scenario would be to pitch for "a team that wants to win."

"Whenever you're in the postseason, that's what you play the game for," Hamels said.

I’m a part of this team, and that’s what I want to be. Until something else happens, until I’m told otherwise, that’s what I want to be and that’s where I am.

"There were always rumors, but I want to be taken by surprise because I want to expect that I’m going to be back here next year. That’s how I want to approach things, that’s how I want to take it. You take this jersey away from me, I don’t want to take it off. That’s how much I love each team that I play for. I want to be loyal to that team. I want to be a National."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart indicated Friday that pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster are in line to pitch in the rotation in 2015, MLB.com reports. The two pitchers were acquired from the Red Sox in a trade that was announced Friday.

An earlier report stated that Stewart indicated that Josh Collmenter would start the regular-season opener, but he just happened to be the first name listed by the general manager when discussing the team's rotation plans.

Currently, Collmenter is lone holdover in the Diamondbacks rotation after the team acquired De La Rosa, Webster and Jeremy Hellickson to fill three spots.
