The Phillies are half way through spring training and Cole Hamels is still in Clearwater, but could that be changing soon?

According to CBS Sports' MLB insider Jon Heyman the Rangers and Phillies "continue to remain in contact" regarding the Phillies left-handed ace. However, as Heyman notes, the two-sides remain far apart.  The Rangers are in search of a top-of-the-rotation starter after losing ace Yu Darvish for the season due to a torn UCL and Tommy John surgery.

The big question when dealing with teams who have interest in Hamels is, do they have the prospects to get a deal done?

In this case, Texas has prospects to get something done if they want, the Phillies "have been said to be seeking three good prospects, with one top-flight one" in a deal involving Hamels.
