Red Sox | Cole Hamels unlikely for Boston

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 16:12:25 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels doesn't appear likely to be dealt to the Boston Red Sox, as there are no signs that point toward any progress in trade talks surrounding Hamels between the two clubs, according to two major league sources. The Phillies have been rumored to covet Red Sox C Blake Swihart and OF Mookie Betts in a package for Hamels. However, Boston is in no rush to swing a trade, and they are unlikely to agree to any trade that involves either Swihart or Betts. Boston is also high on SP Henry Owens.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels' fantasy value would look much better away from the Phillies, but a trade might not happen until closer to the All-Star break now. Regardless, Hamels is one of the more reliable starting pitchers in the league, and he'll keep fantasy ace qualification in Philadelphia to start the season.

Red Sox | BOS has no urgency on Cole Hamels

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 04:22:26 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels has had trade talks cool with the Boston Red Sox, who feel no urgency to deal the pitcher. The Red Sox do not want to part with either OF Mookie Betts or C Blake Swihart in any deal and the Phillies are interested in those players.

Fantasy Tip: All indications are Hamels opens the season in Philadelphia and stays there, at least until the trading deadline. If Hamels can get past his trade demands and is healthy to pitch, he remains a solid option in most mixed and NL drafts.

Cardinals | Philly driving hard for Carlos Martinez

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 05:46:49 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez must be included in a trade proposal for Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels before the Phillies will listen. Hamels loves St. Louis, and his wife is from the area.

Fantasy Tip: There is very little chance the Cards let go of Carlos Martinez unless they feel Adam Wainwright (elbow) or Michael Wacha (shoulder) are compromised for the 2015 season. Martinez has the inside track to win their final rotation spot, and he's a SP4 target in fantasy.

Phillies | Cole Hamels wants to be dealt

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:29:40 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels said he just wants to win Wednesday, Feb. 18, and he knows that is not going to happen with the Phillies. "I want to be in the playoffs every year. That's where you make a name for yourself. It's not about the Cy Young awards and MVP awards. It's about winning championships. You want to be in a place where you have a chance to win."

Fantasy Tip: Hamels has been involved in a number of trade rumors, and landing on a winning team would skyrocket his fantasy stock. Currently, Hamels is a reliable No. 2 arm for your fake team because of his solid ratios and strikeout potential.

Phillies | Cole Hamels' value at its peak

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 16:25:32 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels should be dealt prior to the season, in the opinion of Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Bob Ford. The Phillies have reportedly turned down offers from four teams, but Ford argues Hamels' value will never be higher. Hamels is coming off of a season in which he won only nine games, but his 2.46 ERA indicates he pitched well.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels is a low-end SP1 in deep leagues or high-end SP2, and it's hard to imagine a trade hurting his value. There are very few ballparks that are less favorable for keeping flyballs in than Citizens Bank Park, and a deal to a team that can provide him more run support would help him in the wins category. The rest of the veteran southpaw's sterling numbers should remain strong regardless of what club he pitches for this season.

Padres | SD made aggressive bid for Cole Hamels

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 11:22:17 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels had been a trade target of the San Diego Padres, and the Friars made an aggressive bid to trade for Hamels before they signed SP James Shields to a four-year deal. The Phillies, though, were adamant about acquiring a blue-chip prospect in a trade for Hamels, according to sources, and the Padres might have "not had enough." Another source said the Phillies prefer to trade with the Boston Red Sox, presuming they could receive OF Mookie Betts or C Blake Swihart. However, Hamels can also block a trade to Boston.
