|Cole Hamels feels 'really good' after bullpen session |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9:53 am ET) Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels (shoulder) said his arm felt "really good" after throwing off a mound for the first time in 11 days Wednesday, per the Philadelphia Daily News. Hamels, who threw 20-30 pitches Wednesday, hopes to face live hitters soon.
"A week from now? Definitely," Hamels said. "That’s obviously the goal. But at the same time, it’s seeing how I’m going to feel, putting more workouts in, and really, ultimately building as much strength as I possible can so I have something to go off of."
Pitching coach Bob McClure feels it's possible Hamels, who won't be ready by opening day, to pitch in a spring game before camp breaks.
"He could," McCure said. "Normally he would go pen, pen, pen, a couple days off, bullpen. A couple days off, BP. A couple days off, BP. Day off, side. Two days, game. So, yeah, it could happen."

(3/10/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, per The Philadelphia Inquirer. Hamels has been idle for the last week as he continues to deal with a shoulder injury.
|Cole Hamels suffers setback |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/6/14) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels has suffered a setback in his recovery from shoulder issues, according to MLB.com.
Hamels said he's feeling fatigued, and won't throw again for another week. He said he's not dealing with any shoulder pain. The team still isn't overly concerned with the injury, and no MRI has been scheduled. Hamels said he pushed it too hard, and tried to come back too fast. He wouldn't say whether he'll make it back by April.
Hamels posted a 3.60 ERA in 220 innings last season.
|Cole Hamels to throw live batting practice Thursday |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/3/14) Phillies starter Cole Hamels will throw live batting practice Thursday and Sunday, according to the Philadephia Daily News.
Hamels has thrown two bullpen sessions already, and this will be his first live BP session since experiencing shoulder discomfort in early February. The team thinks that -- without further setbacks -- Hamels should miss just two regular season starts.
Hamels, 30, was 8-14 last season, with a 3.60 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He has thrown at least 200 innings in each of the last four seasons.
|Cole Hamels tosses second 'pen session, eyes batting practice |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels continues to make progress in his recovery from left shoulder discomfort, and could face live hitters in a week.
Hamels tossed his second bullpen session without issue Saturday, and is progressing nicely. Assuming he avoids a setback, he told MLB.com he expects to throw a live batting practice session next week.
"Everything felt really good," Hamels said. "My pitches are really coming along. I'm really able to execute down in the zone. I know that's something Bob [McClure, pitching coach] preaches to everybody. I know I'm pretty good at doing that, so to get into my second bullpen and execute down in the zone, correct pitches within a pitch, having the control, it feels great."
|Cole Hamels surprisingly was one of the top busts of the 2013 Fantasy Baseball season. Hamels on average was a second-round pick last spring, but he struggled to live up to the billing as a Fantasy ace. It was a bit alarming when Hamels went 1-3 with a 4.78 ERA in six April starts, but panic didn't really set in for Fantasy owners until Hamels lost all six of his May starts. It didn't get better in June, as Hamels won once in five starts. Before we knew it, Hamels was 2-11 with a 4.58 ERA in 17 starts. Some of it had to do with poor run support, but plenty of the blame fell on the left-hander, who struggled with his command and was hit hard at times. Luckily, Hamels did rebound over the final three months, going 6-3 with a 2.68 ERA in his final 16 starts. Despite winning less than 10 games for the first time in seven seasons, Hamels still surpassed 200 innings and 200 strikeouts. Still, more bad news is lurking as Hamels might be out until at least mid-to-late April due to shoulder tendinitis. Hamels is still a potential bounce-back candidate, but you might target a different pitcher to be the ace of your Fantasy staff Draft Day with the news Hamels won't be ready by opening day.
