Hamels Has Two Surgeries
The Phillies announced that Cole Hamels had two successful surgeries Friday.
He had a hernia repaired and loose bodies removed from his left elbow.
The Phillies said Hamels should begin a throwing program in three to four weeks. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said earlier this week that Hamels will be ready for the beginning of Spring Training. Hamels went 14-9 with a 2.79 ERA in 32 appearances this season.
