Cole Hamels to Test his Ailing Shoulder; Will Throw a Bullpen Wednesday
Cole Hamels is scheduled to test his sore left shoulder with a bullpen session on Wednesday in camp.
Hamels suffered a setback in his recovery from left shoulder tendinitis last week and explained to the media that he felt fatigue. The left-hander canceled a live BP workout a week ago due to fatigue, but he is now feeling improved strength in his throwing shoulder.
Hamels' had a good, not great season in 2013 ending with an 8-14 record and 3.60 ERA - he will hope to improve on those numbers this season to help justify his six-year, $144 million contract with Philadelphia in July 2012.
