Cole Hamels shoulder problems will land him on the 15-day DL, tweeted Todd Zolecki. Infielder Pete Orr will be called up in his place.
Zolecki followed that up with, “Hamels is scheduled to start series opener against Cincinnati on Aug. 29, which means he has been pushed back 3 days.” He also said, logically explaining the move since Hamels’ DL is retro-active to August 14, “I’m guessing they did this to give them an extra bench man with Ibanez hurting. Also gives Hamels a couple more days to rest.”
There you have it. Nothing to worry about.
