Rangers | Cole Hamels' win streak snapped

Fri, 27 May 2016 22:24:02 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels was touched up for six runs (five earned) on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, May 27. It was Hamels' first loss since August 7, 2015, and ended a streak of 12 straight winning decisions.

Fantasy Tip: It was bound to happen. Hamels made 19 starts in between losses, earning the "W" in a dozen of them. The southpaw hasn't been quite as sharp lately -- 4.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP in his last four starts -- but there's no reason to panic. Weather the storm secure in the knowledge that better days are ahead.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels isn't a fantasy ace, but he is proving to be a solid No. 2 fantasy starter this season.

Rangers | Cole Hamels takes no-decision

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:48:39 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels picked up a no-decision Tuesday, May 17, versus the Oakland Athletics. He registered 6 2/3 innings, surrendering four runs (three earned) on nine hits, including three homers, and two walks. He also added six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels is generally very steady, and that has continued to remain the case in 2016, in which he's allowed three earned runs or fewer in all but one of his eight assignments. With a 3.10 ERA, as well as 51 strikeouts in 49 1/3 total innings, Hamels is proving to still be effective in his first full year with the Rangers.

Rangers | Cole Hamels fans nine batters

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:30:21 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed five runs -- three earned -- on nine hits while striking out nine batters through 5 2/3 innings during the Rangers' 6-5 win over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 11. Hamels did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels is off to a solid start with a 4-0 record, a 2.95 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP with 45 strikeouts through 42 2/3 innings. He could be slightly overachieving as he also stands with a 4.29 FIP, so it isn't out of the question to attempt to sell high on the veteran. At the same time, though, he's a solid mid-rotation arm for your fantasy staff.

Rangers | Cole Hamels to return Sunday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:46:24 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (groin) threw a successful second bullpen session Wednesday, April 27, and he's scheduled to return to the rotation and face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels isn't getting as many strikeouts as he has in the past (23 in 25 inning), but he's been efficient and has gone at least six innings in three of his four starts. Hamels has also allowed three earned runs or less in each of his outings. Facing the Angels Sunday, Hamels should be returned to starting lineups everywhere. The Halos rank dead last in the AL with a .646 OPS.

Rangers | No decision on Cole Hamels

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 16:47:53 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (groin) could return to the rotation as early as this weekend, but the Rangers have yet to make a decision on his next start. Hamels threw a 26-pitch bullpen session without problems Monday, April 25, and threw long toss Tuesday, April 26. He'll need to throw an extended bullpen Wednesday, April 27, before possibly facing the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, April 30. SP Cesar Ramos could step in for Hamels this weekend if needed.

Fantasy Tip: If Hamels doesn't have any setbacks tomorrow, expect him to make his second start against the Angels this season on Saturday. Despite only 23 strikeouts in 25 innings, Hamels hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his four starts this year. The Halos are one of the weaker hitting offenses in the AL, too, so returning Hamels to your lineups would be advised.

Rangers | Cesar Ramos solid as replacement

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:45:09 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cesar Ramos made the start Monday, April 25, against the New York Yankees in place of the injured SP Cole Hamels (groin). He allowed three earned runs, nine hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings in a loss.

Fantasy Tip: This might be a one-off start for Ramos. Avoid him in AL-only fantasy leagues unless the team gives him another start.

Rangers | No issues for Cole Hamels

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:57:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (hamstring) threw a 26-pitch bullpen session Monday, April 25, and experienced no issues. He could return to the rotation as early as Saturday, April 30, opposite the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Those who own Hamels in weekly leagues can breathe a sigh of relief now, as it was possible Hamels could've missed the whole week if today's bullpen didn't turn out well. Instead, there were no complications, and the veteran southpaw should be all systems go for his next assignment. Considering the Angels are last in baseball in team batting average, there's a solid chance Hamels churns out another quality outing.

Rangers | Cole Hamels to throw bullpen

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:02:30 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (groin) is scheduled to throw a bullpen Monday, April 25. He still might make his start this weekend after being scratched from his outing opposite the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: This puts weekly league owners in a pickle, as Hamels was supposed to have two starts this week, yet may end up having none if his bullpen session doesn't go as desired. Regardless, he's worth keeping in fantasy lineups, as he would take on the Angels if he's healthy enough for his next start. The Halos are currently last in baseball in team batting average, so Hamels could thrive and still give his owners something useful this week.
