Hamels, Adams Updates

Ryne Sandberg, A.J. Burnett, Cole HamelsCole Hamels is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session next Tuesday at Carpenter Complex.

He is behind schedule after feeling discomfort in his left shoulder in November. He said he could open the season on the disabled list, but if he does he does not expect to miss much time.

Right-hander Mike Adams is throwing off flat ground two more times before he could throw his first bullpen session Feb. 27. He is behind schedule following right shoulder surgery in July.

He said he would be pushing it to be ready by Opening Day on March 31.

“I would love to be ready for Opening Day, but I’ve got to do what’s best for myself and best for the team. I want to make sure I’m there for the long haul and not rush myself out there and do something that’s not smart. I’m thinking early to mid-April might be more realistic. Once I’m ready to go, I don’t want to have no more setbacks or go on the DL or anything. If it’s late April, it’s late April. Do what’s best.”

I read Adam’s comments and think of Crash Davis giving Nuke LaLusch the quick guide to what to say to the press for any occasion. See ya in June Mike, before you break down again in July.

Not feeling (nor is Mike Adams) too confident about his production this year. Isn’t Ruben Amaro wonderful?
