Phillies | Cole Hamels start pushed back

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:55:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels will not start against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, July 30, and is now scheduled to start against the Braves Friday, July 31, but he may be traded before the deadline. The Phillies did not want the possibility of an injury before the deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) may have made his last start with the Phillies, so his next start is uncertain at this point. Hamels has received interest from several teams and could be traded in the next few days. Hamels should be a solid option on FantasyScore not matter where he plays.

Phillies | Cole Hamels offers encouraged soon

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:18:28 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is firmly on the trade block this week, and the Phillies are telling several teams that they'd prefer it if they get their "best" offers in by Wednesday, July 29, according to sources. Philadelphia continues to speak with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox about Hamels. The Phillies have initiated talks with about half of that group, though. The Astros have made a late push to land Hamels after he threw a no-hitter over the weekend. The Giants appear to have a hard time matching the Phillies' demands. Hamels' next start is Thursday, July 30, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) to be dealt sometime later this week. The Dodgers and Rangers remain his most likely landing spots. Hamels already has fantasy ace value, but he'll be even more attractive pitching for a contending team.

Phillies | Cole Hamels has no-trade list

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:42:01 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has a limited no-trade list, and the Houston Astros and Arizona Diamondbacks are both on it.

Fantasy Tip: It seems inevitable that Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) will be traded this week, it's just a matter of where he lands. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers are the favorites for his services. Hamels is already a fantasy ace, but his value will increase slightly pitching for a contender.

Giants | San Fran making push for Cole Hamels

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 06:17:45 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is receiving a strong pursuit by the San Francisco Giants in recent days. The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Dodgers are still ahead of the Giants in the lead to acquire him, but the Giants have $50 million coming off their books at the end of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is a top-flight starter no matter where he pitches, but San Francisco could give him a boost on FantasyScore.

Astros | Cole Hamels would say no to HOU

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:15:49 -0700

The Houston Astros made a late push to acquire Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels. However, sources said weeks ago that Hamels would not approve a deal to Houston.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is scheduled to pitch Thursday for the Phillies, but FantasyScore players will want to be really careful to double- and triple-check those lineups to make sure he isn't scratched due to a trade, or a potential trade.

Diamondbacks | Arizona looking at Cole Hamels

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:07:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has received interest from the Arizona Diamondbacks, and they have reached out to the Phillies to express their interest, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably unlikely the D-backs land Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap), but even a move to Arizona and the National League West would likely be at least a small upgrade to his fantasy value. He remains a true fantasy ace that should become more valuable even with a move to the American League.

Cubs | Chicago in the mix for Cole Hamels

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 11:15:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels remains in the mix for the Chicago Cubs in trade discussions, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers and the Dodgers are the favorites for Hamels' ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) services, but the Cubs could land him, too. Hamels will surely see his fantasy value rise with a trade out of Philly to a contender, and he'll be that much more valuable as a fantasy ace for the rest of the season.

Phillies | Dodgers, Rangers favorites for Cole Hamels

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:19:04 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is expected to land with either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Texas Rangers, according to multiple sources. The Phillies are also discussing Hamels with the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox, but those teams are having more trouble matching up on a potential deal than the Dodgers or Rangers. Sources would be surprised if any trade is worked out before Tuesday, July 28. The Dodgers and Rangers, among other teams, both had scouts during Hamels' no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs over the weekend. Hamels is under contract for three more years after 2015 and has a team or vesting option for a fourth season, making him more attractive than the class of free-agent aces on the market. Teams speaking with Philadelphia won't be surprised if a deal goes right down to the deadline Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels' ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) numbers this year with the Phils don't look that great, particularly because of the lack of run support he's receiving. But he remains one of the top-tier pitchers in the game, and a trade away from Philly will only increase his fantasy value while pitching for a contender.

Phillies | Cole Hamels no-hits Cubs

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 15:44:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels threw a no-hitter to beat the Chicago Cubs Saturday, July 25. Hamels walked two and struck out 13 in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: If that was the last game Hamels throws for the Phillies, he went out with a bang. Hamels ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is a top-flight starter on FantasyScore regardless of the jersey he dons.

Rangers | TEX won't part with top prospects

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:43:55 -0700

The Texas Rangers have intensified trade talks with the Philadelphia Phillies regarding SP Cole Hamels, according to a major league source. However, they are unlikely to part with top prospects such as 3B Joey Gallo and OF Nomar Mazara in any potential deal and want the Phillies to pick up a chunk of his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is appealing to the Rangers because he is under contract through the 2018 season, with a vesting option for 2019. He will start against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, July 25, but FantasyScore owners should avoid using him because he is 0-2 with a 19.89 ERA over his last two starts.
