Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Zack Wheeler and the Phillies have agreed on a 5 year, $118 million deal, per multiple reports Zack Wheeler and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed on a 5 year, $118 million deal, per multiple reports. Evan Grant had reported earlier today that the Texas Rangers, who had Wheeler near the top of their free agent wish list, had been informed they were out of the running. 5 years and a little over $23 million per year is fairly steep for a pitcher with Wheeler’s track record, but after dealing with injuries and ineffectiveness early in his career, Wheeler has...

Report: Profar traded to Padres

Photo by Stephen Brashear/ Former Ranger Jurickson Profar is reportedly on his way to San Diego MLB Trade Rumors: Jurickson Profar has been sent to the San Diego Padres from the Oakland A’s, per multiple reports.

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.

He made 17 starts for the Cubs up to the end of June, posting a...
