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.

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.
