Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels (biceps) pitched what was likely his final rehab start on Thursday, April 17, as he threw seven strong innings for Class A Clearwater. Hamels allowed one run on three hits while walking one and striking out two. Hamels, making his third start for the Threshers, threw 57 of his 81 pitches for strikes.
