Phillies | Willing to take some of Cole Hamels' salary

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 19:17:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Phillies are listening to offers for SP Cole Hamels, but the price is astronomical. He has four years left on his contract after this season, at $22.5 million per year. The Phillies have told teams they're willing to take on $10 million of that. Despite that, one American League executive said Monday, July 28, that the asking price is "just not realistic."

Phillies | Cole Hamels' price: 'the world'

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:37:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is technically available on the trade market, but "they want the world" in exchange for him, according to a rival general manager. Hamels has a 20-team no-trade list but might be open to a trade because of Philadelphia's recent performance on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Hardly a surprise, considering he's a much better long-term ace than Cliff Lee, who has a better chance of being dealt, even after the non-waiver deadline. It'd take a ridiculous offer for Hamels to be moved.
