Player Notes
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro said Tuesday that he thinks Cole Hamels "is going to be in our uniform" next season.

Advice: "I don’t really foresee him being moved," Amaro said. "It is possible because we’re literally keeping our minds and eyes and ears open on every player that we have on our roster. That said, he’s one of the best pitchers in baseball. And so, if we were to move him, we’re going to have to get some of the best prospects in baseball back." It's perfectly reasonable for Amaro to take this stance, as Hamels is his best trade chip and he needs to extract as much value as possible if he's going to deal him. And, because Hamels is under contract for four more years, there's no pressure for the GM to make a move unless he gets exactly what he wants. The Cardinals, Red Sox, Padres and Rangers have been talking to the Phillies about the southpaw, though the Rangers are likely now out of the picture after they dealt for Yovani Gallardo.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Cardinals' interest in Cole Hamels has "not advanced."

Advice: It was Rosenthal who reported just over a week ago that the Cardinals were interested in Hamels, but it appears no headway has been made in trade talks since then. He thinks the Cards might be "focused on other matters," which could be Max Scherzer and/or David Price, two other arms Rosenthal connected the team to. In addition to St. Louis, Boston, Texas and San Diego appear to be the primary suitors for Hamels. It doesn't appear that the lefty is close to be traded anywhere, though.

Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports that a potential "stumbling block" with the Rangers possibly trading for Cole Hamels is the money involved.

Advice: Hamels is owed $96 million over the next four seasons and has a $20 million club option (or $24 million vesting option) for a fifth year, and that's evidently a tad rich for the Rangers. Fraley says that the Phillies would have to pick up some of Hamels' contract in order to make something work, and it seems unlikely that they'd be willing to do that since, relatively, his deal is quite reasonable. The Red Sox, Padres and Cardinals are also in on the left-hander.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com was told by a source familiar with the Phillies’ thinking on the matter that general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. and his club have been "unrealistic in their expectations" in regard to a return in a trade for Cole Hamels.

Advice: They have every reason to, as Hamels is their biggest trade chip and would fetch a huge haul to kickstart their rebuilding effort. Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reported Thursday that the Phillies are eyeing Red Sox catching prospect Blake Swihart and Padres catching prospect Austin Hedges in a possible Hamels deal, but they'd surely want some other major pieces in both scenarios. The Red Sox have a clear need, but this situation might not have a resolution until later in the season. The Cardinals and Rangers have also been linked to Hamels in recent days.

The Phillies are high on Red Sox catching prospect Blake Swihart and would insist on Padres catching prospect Austin Hedges in a trade involving Cole Hamels, according to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly.

Advice: Carlos Ruiz turns 36 years old in a week and the Phillies are rather thin in catching depth at the higher levels of the minor leagues, so adding a prospect like Swihart or Hedges would be a boon to their system. The Phillies are reportedly asking for a lot in any Hamels deal, so they may not move him before the start of the season. A July trade seems more likely. Along with the Red Sox and Padres, the Cardinals and Rangers have also reportedly shown interest in Hamels.
