Cole Hamels admits he came back too soon from his oblique injury

Cole Hamels admits he came back too soon from his oblique injury

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Perhaps this season might have turned out differently. Cole Hamels suffered an oblique injury in late April 2017 when he was with the Rangers. At the time, it was said he’d miss about eight weeks. That was just about how much time he did miss; he returned in late June. Even then, he wasn’t quite the same pitcher after the injury: Before injury: 5 starts, 32⅔ innings, 3.03 ERA, 1.133 WHIPAfter injury: 19 starts, 115⅓ innings, 4.53 ERA, 1.223 WHIP The same thing happened to Hamels in 2019. He made 17 starts for the Cubs up to the end of June, posting a...

Cole Hamels could provide competence - and nostalgia - for the 2020 Phillies rotation

Could Cole Hamels be headed back to Philadelphia? As the Eagles have shown us, nothing can go wrong by bringing back a great player from the past The Phillies’ top priority this offseason should be bolstering their shaky starting rotation. According to Todd Zolecki, one possibility for that bolstering is a very familiar name: The #Phillies need starting pitchers. Cole Hamels needs a job. A Phillies-Hamels reunion makes sense, especially because he is willing to take a one-year deal to play for a contender. https://t.co/Z0KLqLWSMp— Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) November 7,...

Chicago Cubs: Looking at trade partners for Jose Quintana

The Chicago Cubs front office is in a rather tricky place heading into the  offseason and could look to trade Jose Quintana to address other areas. Sure, the Chicago Cubs have created some extra payroll space by declining options on the likes of Brandon Morrow, Kendall Graveman, David Phelps and Derek Holland.

MLB Trade Rumors predicts Braves sign Cole Hamels, Mike Moustakas

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports For entertainment purposes only... MLB Trade Rumors just released their annual free agency predictions, which is always a fun read for baseball fans as the offseason gets going. Before you freak out, please remember these are complete guesses by their staff. Last year’s list had Bryce Harper going to the Dodgers for 14 years, Manny Machado joining the Phillies, Josh Donaldson playing for the Cardinals and Dallas Keuchel becoming a National while getting 6x the amount of money he ended up signing with the Braves for in June.

Cubs roster moves: No qualifying offer to Cole Hamels, Colin Rea added to 40-man roster

Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/ Now the free agent signing period truly begins. Lefthander Cole Hamels became a free agent the day after the World Series ended. I had thought the Cubs might make him a qualifying offer ($17.8 million this year), but that is apparently not happening: Hearing the Cubs aren’t offering Cole Hamels a qualifying offer so he’ll be a free agent with no draft compensation attached to him etc.— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) November 4, 2019 This doesn’t preclude the Cubs from negotiating with Hamels on a new contract if they so choose. I certainly wouldn’t...
