Rangers | Cole Hamels suffers loss in Game 5

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 17:37:21 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed five runs (two earned) on four hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 5 of the American League Division Series. He walked two and struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) didn't perform as poorly as the pitching line might suggest. He exited the game with the bases loaded and a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning, with all three baserunners reaching on errors, before the Jays erupted for four runs against the bullpen. Hamels should form a solid 1-2 punch with Yu Darvish at the top of the Rangers' rotation in 2016 and the 31-year-old should be one of the first left-handed starters chosen in seasonal baseball drafts next spring.

Rangers | Cole Hamels tosses seven innings

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 17:42:04 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits over seven innings in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Oct. 9, with no walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although Hamels ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) ended up with a no-decision, the Rangers improved to 11-0 in his last 11 outings. If he makes another start in this series, he will be a somewhat risky FantasyScore play because of Toronto's high-powered offense.

Rangers | Cole Hamels pitching well of late

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 17:36:07 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels is 7-1 with a 3.66 ERA over 12 starts since being acquired in a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies in late July. The team has won each of the past 10 games he has started.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) will be on the mound for Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Oct. 9, and will be making his first postseason appearance since 2011. Despite his recent success, he is a somewhat risky play in FantasyScore because of the Jays' high-powered offense, which scored the most runs in Major League Baseball during the 2015 regular season.

Rangers | Texas rotation for division series

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 09:48:57 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo will start Game 1 of the division series against the Toronto Blue Jays and SP Cole Hamels will go in Game 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers face the highest-scoring team in baseball to open the playoffs, so using their starting pitchers on FantasyScore comes with a good amount of risk, and both venues in this series are heavily tilted toward the hitters.

Rangers | Cole Hamels wins AL West for Texas

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 15:39:20 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed three hits Sunday, Oct. 4, as the Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 9-2. The win clinched the American League West for Texas and knocked the Angels out of playoff contention.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) will be one of the top AL pitchers moving forward in most fantasy drafts. With a strong lineup behind him that could be augmented in free agency, Hamels could benefit from a full season in Arlington next year.

Rangers | Cole Hamels earns win Thursday

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 17:28:14 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (11-8) allowed one unearned run on four hits over six innings in a victory over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, Sept. 24, with three walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: With the win, Hamels ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) improved to 3-0 with a 2.91 ERA through five September starts. FantasyScore owners should consider using him in his next outing will be Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the Detroit Tigers.

Rangers | Cole Hamels to start Thursday

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 20:04:48 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels will start Thursday, Sept. 24, against the Oakland Athletics rather than facing the Houston Astros Friday, Sept. 25. As a result he will see three starts down the stretch rather than just two.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) faces more of a favorable matchup, too, so FantasyScore players will want to take advantage this week.

Rangers | Cole Hamels quiets Mariners

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 06:04:58 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed one run on seven hits while striking out 12 batters during the Rangers' 10-1 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is now 4-1 with Texas, and he righted the ship after a three-game slump where he allowed 10 runs through 21 innings. Hamels checks out as a tier-two starter with the upside to yield high-end returns in the right matchups. Seasonal owners can start him with confidence against all opponents, but FantasyScore players would be wise to be selective given his hefty cap hit.

Rangers | Cole Hamels worse with extra rest

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 14:50:14 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels owns a 3.65 ERA in starts when he has five or more days of rest compared to a 3.03 ERA with a regular four days of rest during his career. Hamels is starting against the Houston Astros Monday, Sept. 14, on six days of rest.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) hasn't been overly impressive since joining the Rangers with a 4.07 ERA through seven starts, and his matchup isn't ideal against the 'Stros Monday. FantasyScore players should be able to allocate their cap space more effectively.

Rangers | Cole Hamels pushed back to Monday

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 11:02:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (shoulder) will be pushed back to start Monday, Sept. 14. SP Chi Chi Gonzalez will pitch Sunday, Sept. 13.

Fantasy Tip: With the rotation shakeup, Hamels ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) will now face the Houston Astros at home Monday. The Astros strike out plenty but have potent bats, making Hamels a risk/reward option on FantasyScore coming off injury. Gonzalez has a nice matchup against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, but he's still not a very strong play in daily formats.
