Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels hit 96.2 mph on the radar gun Thursday, July 24. It was the fastest he has thrown since 2010.
Fantasy Tip: Hamels missed the beginning of the season with a shoulder injury, so this is encouraging news for fantasy owners. He has allowed three earned runs or less in his last 10 outings, striking out 107 batters in 103 2/3 innings pitched, with a 2.43 ERA.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels pitched eight innings, allowing an earned run on six hits and a walk, while striking out 10 batters, to earn his fifth win Thursday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: It was business as usual for Hamels, who now sports a measly 2.72 ERA. Fantasy owners would love to see an uptick in wins, which could happen if he is moved to a superior team.
