Cubs | Interested in Cole Hamels

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 11:56:38 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is once again attracting interest from the Chicago Cubs, who are also interested in free-agent SPs Jon Lester (Athletics) and Max Scherzer (Tigers), according to sources. The Cubs will also likely look into free-agent SP James Shields (Royals), who has ties to new manager Joe Maddon. The Cubs claimed Hamels on revocable waivers in early July before the Phillies pulled him back. Hamels will be paid $96 million over the next four years, meaning he'll come cheaper than the free agent pitchers on the market.
