Cole Hamels pain-free after throwing session

Cole Hamels reported he was pain-free after a throwing session. He will continue playing catch for another week before ramping up his throwing program.

Fantasy Impact

It's good news for owners as Hamels is resuming throwing. Still, he's likely to be sidelined until early July, and that's assuming no setbacks. Hamels raised more red flags in the early going, but owners likely have to stay put and see how he's able to return considering the investment.

Cole Hamels to miss roughly two months with oblique strain

The Rangers announced on Wednesday that Cole Hamels was being placed on the disabled list with a right oblique strain and is likely to miss about eight weeks.

Fantasy Impact

This is devastating news for fantasy owners who likely grabbed Hamels as one of their top three starters for this season, as it sounds like he is going to be out until around the trade deadline in July. Through his first five starts, Hamels had an incredibly lackluster 15-to-12 strikeout-to-walk ratio, though perhaps he had been trying to pitch through this issue during that time. In any event, plan to be without Hamels for at least the next two months.

Cole Hamels scratched from Tuesday's start with oblique issue

Cole Hamels experienced 'tightness' with his oblique muscle on his right side while going through normal pre-game warmup tosses in the bullpen minutes before the game against the Astros Tuesday night. He was quickly removed from the starting lineup. The team announced that he will be returning to Arlington to be examined by Dr. Keith Meister.

Fantasy Impact

Obviously not a very good sign so owners will have to do their homework on whom to use if Hamels misses any more time. This is a rough time for Hamels and the Rangers but he was showing major regression this year and this could be an opportunity to pick up a starter who shows upside for fantasy purposes. Stay tuned to the experts at FantasyPros to evaluate and offer information on possible fill-ins.

Cole Hamels spectacular over eight innings Friday night

Cole Hamels was spectacular Friday night in the win over Kansas City. Over eight innings, he allowed three hits and one run (earned) while walking two and striking out three. It was just what the beleaguered Rangers needed, a solid outing and a win. With the victory, Hamels is now 1-0 on the year. Next up for him is Hector Santiago and the Twins, Wednesday in Arlington.

Fantasy Impact

This is the kind of performance that owners look forward to from Hamels. Just solid, gritty determination to get the job done. He is primed for a great year and games like this may not occur weekly, but still, he set the expectation tonight and is up to the challenge of being a big presence on the mound for his team.
