Phillies SP Cole Hamels goes eight strong innings in win Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Phillies ace left-hander Cole Hamels was masterful against the Nationals on Saturday afternoon. Hamels held the Nats to just one run on five hits in eight innings, walking one and striking out five along the way. He threw 104 pitches, with 73 going for strikes.
The only run to score on Hamels came in his final inning on an RBI-double by Ian Desmond. Hamels was able to quiet the team that leads the National League in scoring.
"They're a great lineup," Hamels said, per MLB.com. "One through nine, they've got some pitchers who hit. Every single one of them can start a rally faster than you can possibly imagine, so you just have to keep bearing down with them, you can't give in. Sometimes you look at the National League as being the weaker division, but that kind of team is an American League-style team."
Hamels (5-3) lowered his season ERA from 3.24 to 2.98. He's set to make his next start Friday against the Rockies.
Phillies' Cole Hamels wouldn't waive no-trade clause for Blue Jays
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) The Blue Jays inquired about Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels, but were told Hamels would not waive his 20-team no-trade clause to go to Toronto, sources told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Heyman wrote Hamels turning down a trade to the Blue Jays was disappointing to the Phillies since Philadelphia likely saw Toronto as a good trade partner with all its young pitching talent (i.e. Aaron Sanchez, Daniel Norris).
Phillies P Cole Hamels earns win in Monday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) For the first time this season, Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels was able to pitch past the seventh inning during Monday's 4-3 win over the Rockies.
Hamels allowed one run on six hits over 7 1/3 innings of work to pick up his fourth win of the season. He also struck out seven batters and walked one during the outing. He lowered his ERA to 3.24 after Monday’s start.
"I had the utmost confidence -- just the way we've been playing -- that we were going to put up some runs," Hamels said, per MLB.com. "I wasn't trying to be too fine, just really trying to challenge them."
After surrendering seven home runs in his first three starts of the season, Hamels has given up one home run in his last six starts. He has now pitched at least seven innings and given up two or fewer runs in three-consecutive starts.
His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday at Washington.
Could the Astros make a move for Kazmir, Buchholz or Lohse?
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) It would be a surprise to most if the Astros become players in the Cole Hamels sweepstakes, considering his annual salary of $24 million is about half of what the Astros' total payrolls sunk to in recent lowly years.
However, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, Scott Kazmir (a Houston native), Clay Buchholz and Kyle Lohse (ties to general manager Jeff Luhnow) are the three pitchers to watch for in Houston, should they become available.
Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels strikes out nine in win Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Philadelpia's 3-2 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.
Hamels cruised through much of his start, striking out nine batters. His only issue came in the fifth inning when he loaded the bases. After striking out Sean Rodriguez, Hamels allowed an RBI single to Andrew McCutchen, scoring two runs.
Hamels, now 3-3, lowered his ERA to 3.53 in 51 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Monday against the Rockies.
|2014 summary: For the second season in a row, the Phillies failed to provide Cole Hamels with three runs of support per nine innings, but the lefty emerged with a 9-9 record and a top 20 standing among starting pitchers in Fantasy value. Hamels did his typically stellar job of throwing strikes and missing bats, but even with Citizens Bank Park as a backdrop for 14 of his starts, he did a superb job of limiting extra-base hits (opponents' .345 slugging percentage, .110 Isolated Power). That helped Hamels to achieve a career-low 2.46 ERA.|
Playing time status: Hamels' 2014 season started more than three weeks late due to shoulder inflammation, and his 30 starts were his lowest total since 2007. Even with the delay, Hamels turned in his fifth straight season with at least 200 innings pitched, so owners should feel comfortable banking on a sixth straight season.
2015 outlook: Not surprisingly, Hamels has been more homer-prone when pitching in Philadelphia, so the fact that he is very likely to be wearing a different uniform by opening day is likely to be a good development. Just maybe he can get some better run support as well. While Hamels' circumstances could improve, there are no signs of decline in terms of what he brings to the mound. He can be drafted as a top 15 starter who has the upside of a top 10 option.
