Hamels Scratched from Friday’s Start

Cole HamelsThis isn’t the news the Phillies needed.

They announced this afternoon that Cole Hamels has been scratched from tomorrow night’s start against the Cardinals because of a mild right hamstring strain. Triple-A right-hander Phillippe Aumont will start in his place.

Hamels is 5-5 with a 2.96 ERA in 14 starts this season, but his health is critical as the July 31 Trade Deadline approaches. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said yesterday he is hopeful the Phillies can make some trades to speed up the team’s rebuilding process. Hamels is the team’s most valuable piece, so they must hope the injury does not linger and Hamels returns to the rotation shortly.

A roster move will be made prior to Friday’s game to accommodate Aumont on the 25-man and 40-man rosters.

I figured they would give Francour’s a spot start.

Oh, lord! That’s all I can say.

what we need is to get rid of Howard,Utley and Ruiz

What we need is to get rid of (in this order) RAJ, Sandberg, Hamels, Papelbon, Harang, Howard, Ruiz. I think Chase Utley, as much as I loved him as a player needs to hang ’em up.

Le montant du financement pour un groupe d’âge serait de période là-bas entre 2 cents et aussi 3
cent pour cent relative aux difficultés .
