A List of the Teams Cole Hamels can be Dealt to
According to FOX Sports' baseball insiders Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal Cole Hamels can be traded to nine different teams without his permission. Those teams are the Dodgers, Angels, Cardinals, Nationals, Braves, Yankees, Red Sox, Rangers and Padres. Hamles still has four seasons remaining on his seven-year, $153 million contract.
The left-hander is 3-5 with a 2.87 for the year, the Phillies scored a total of six runs in his losses.
It remains to be seen if teams are interested in Hamels or if the Phillies even want to entertain the thoughts on dealing him at this stage. He is still a very good, left-handed pitcher who has four season left on his deal. One obstacle in dealing Hamels away would be his $153 million remaining - not many teams would be willing to pay that kind of salary, but they would get a top-of-the-rotation pitcher for four more seasons.
So Phillies fans, do you think the Phillies should trade Cole Hamles?
