Cole Hamels goes four solid innings Tuesday against White Sox

Cole Hamels, doing some fine tuning with his pitching, went four solid innings Tuesday against the White Sox. He allowed three hits and two runs (one earned) while walking none and striking out five. Hamels said after the game he will use the final two spring starts to strengthen his arm. It's unclear who will serve as the Opening Day pitcher for the Rangers but Hamels said he will be ready, whether it's then or April 4th.

Fantasy Impact

Hamels is healthy and primed for another solid year. His ADP is 82 and he has good value there.

Cole Hamels goes three innings against minor league club Wednesday

Cole Hamels pitched three innings against the Rangers High-A team Wednesday and came away satisfied with the results. He primarily wanted to get a feel for his pitches and mechanics and he was able to do just that. During the outing, he allowed three hits and one run but the stats don't really matter. Hamels likes to pitch to minor leaguers in the spring because they tend to hack away and he feels they offer more feedback on his pitches than do major league hitters.

Fantasy Impact

Hamels is healthy and should be a fine addition to fantasy rosters. His current ADP is 80 which is about 16-20 ahead of where I would like him. He should receive nice run support which should give owners the Win but he is more tantalizing in leagues that score Quality Starts.

Cole Hamels gets knocked out of game against Dodgers Friday

Cole Hamels lasted only 1/3 of the first inning Friday night against the Dodgers. In that short appearance, he allowed three hits and four runs (all earned) while walking two and recording no strikeouts. Two of the hits he surrendered were home runs. He'll look to get back on track his next time out.

Fantasy Impact

No real concern here. Hamels is fine, just had a bad day. He's healthy and fully draftable.

Cole Hamels makes spring debut Monday

Cole Hamels appeared in a B game against mostly White Sox minor leaguers Monday. He threw 30 total pitches with 20 counting as strikes and gave up a two-run homer in the process. He is scheduled to pitch again this weekend on a back field, not in a regular spring game. Hamels appeared healthy as he embarks on his 12th major-league season.

Fantasy Impact

Hamels knows the routine well and is healthy. Not much has changed with his outlook and even though today was his debut, he just took it in stride as he prepares for and opening day or Day 2 start.

Cole Hamels with a no-decision

Cole Hamels allowed eight hits and five runs, three of them earned, in seven innings of work, but did not figure in the decision as the Rangers rallied for an 8-5 win over the Brewers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Hamels struck out six but did not walk a batter on the night. He left the game with his team trailing 5-4, but the Rangers put a four-spot on the board in the eighth inning to win the game.
