Phillies | Cole Hamels serves up another homer

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 17:29:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels gave up his seventh home run of the season Thursday, April 16, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) has gotten off to a frustrating start for owners who paid the high price on draft day or continue to pay up on FantasyScore. This season it took just 65 batters faced to hit seven home runs off of Hamels after it took 359 batters to hit seven homers last season. It's an unlucky start for Hamels, but owners will need to show patience in the likely ace of their fantasy staff.

Phillies | Cole Hamels solid against Nats

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 13:29:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has a 2.59 ERA in 33 career starts against the Washington Nationals, following a seven-inning start Saturday, April 11, where he allowed one run.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is off to a strong start, but keep this in mind when he faces the Nationals. Looks like Hamels has a mastery of Washington, give or take one bad outing. Hamels is a solid pitcher in all formats.

Phillies | Cole Hamels has rough outing

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 16:34:48 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels allowed four runs on five hits in five innings against the Boston Red Sox Monday, April 6. He also allowed four home runs in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) was facing a tough Boston lineup, so outings like this probably will not happen very often. Hamels is scheduled to face the Washington Nationals in his next start and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cole Hamels to start opener

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 03:55:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels will start the team's opener Monday, April 6, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) goes up against a team that has made no secret it would like him in a Boston uniform. The teams just haven't agreed on a price tag. His stats suggest a mixed bag. Hamels was 3-3 with a 3.20 ERA at Citizens Bank Park last year, but he was 0-2, 6.75 in April. Combined with a revived Boston lineup, he may not be worth the high salary.

Phillies | PHI may shop for fifth starter

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 00:08:56 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies may look outside the organization for a fifth starter to complement SPs Cole Hamels, Aaron Harang, David Buchanan and Jerome Williams. Names tossed about include free-agent SP Jhoulys Chacin (Rockies), free-agent SP Scott Baker (Yankees) and free-agent SP Felix Doubront (Cubs).

Fantasy Tip: It may be worth a pick towards the last few rounds of deep NL drafts depending on who wins the job. Stay tuned.

Phillies | Cole Hamels returns to form

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 19:00:40 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels tossed five scoreless innings against the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, March 26, allowing two hits and three walks while striking out four.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels had been struggling this spring, but he shut down a powerful Toronto lineup Thursday. Despite a 9-9 record last year, he finished last season with an impressive 2.46 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. His win total may be depressed a bit if he stays in Philadelphia, but his ratios and strikeout totals should make him a solid No. 2 starter on fantasy rosters.

Rangers | Texas remains interested in Cole Hamels

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:12:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels continues to be discussed in trade talks with the Texas Rangers, according to sources. The teams are not close to a deal, though. The Phillies are said to be seeking three good prospects, including a top-flight one, in return for Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Hamels to finish the 2015 season with Philadelphia, and a relocation could be a significant fantasy boost. However, there is no telling when a deal will take place or where he'll go. Hamels remains a strong No. 2 starter for your fake rotation and worth targeting after the top arms come off the board on draft day.

Phillies | Cole Hamels trade not imminent

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 16:32:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels doesn't appear to be any closer to being dealt in light of SP Cliff Lee's injury news. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro doesn't believe there is a lesson to be learned from Lee's injury. "Nope," Amaro told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark, quite succinctly. "Why would it change? No reason to change it."

Fantasy Tip: Hamels remains an SP2 in fantasy leagues, but if he's dealt to a club that can provide him more run support, he could become a fringe SP1.

Yankees | NYY closest on Cole Hamels?

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 01:43:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has been the subject of trade talks, and the New York Yankees appear to have matched up best with the Phillies, according to those in the know.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels is still a desirable pitcher in all league formats, and a move to the Yankees would not decrease Hamels' fantasy value much if at all.

Rangers | Texas could target Cole Hamels

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 14:59:10 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels could be of interest to the Texas Rangers, depending on the results of SP Yu Darvish's (elbow) second elbow examination.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels' value would take a slight hit moving to the American League. The ballpark factors are pretty similar, and he has thrived in Philly. So he's still a low-end SP1 target if he were to land in Texas.
