“According to Amaro, Hamels ‘got aggressive’ with his throwing program sometime in October. The pitcher, according to Amaro, ‘had some soreness’ and contacted [head athletic trainer] Scott Sheridan.
‘We shut him down for a couple of weeks, but he’s fine now,’ Amaro said.”
Great. For a Phillies team entering the season with a number of question marks, Cole Hamels need to be at the top of his game if they want to compete. It sounds like Hamels is doing better now but this is certain to make Phillies fans uneasy. Hamels, 29, won a career high 17 games last year going 17-6 with a 3.05 ERA while striking out a career high 216 batters.
