Player Notes
According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Rangers are "now the clear-cut favorite" to land Cole Hamels.

Advice: Nightengale says the Dodgers prefer David Price, and the Tigers made it public Wednesday that they're going to begin selling parts. Hamels is also drawing interest from the Astros, but word from Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle is that the Astros expect the ace left-hander to land elsewhere. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Wednesday afternoon that the Giants are "fading" in the Hamels chase. It's all coming together for Texas.

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros "remain in the Cole Hamels race" but expect him to land elsewhere.

Advice: That's seemed to be the feeling for a while, as the Astros have made a nice effort for Hamels but can't seem to convince the left-hander to consider accepting a trade there. The Rangers and Dodgers are looking like the teams to beat for the southpaw.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are "fading" in the pursuit of Cole Hamels.

Advice: It's not a surprise. The Giants would like a frontline starter to pair with Madison Bumgarner, but they have a weak farm system and, thus, can't compete for Hamels if there's a bidding war. San Francisco might have to set their sights a bit lower in their desire for a starter.

Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com "strongly believes" that the Phillies will trade Cole Hamels to the Rangers.

Advice: Salisbury is well-connected with the Phillies and it's the second time in the last few days that he's listed the Rangers as the favorites for Hamels' services. The Dodgers will likely be their biggest competitors, with the Astros, Yankees, Giants, Cubs, Red Sox and Diamondbacks also in the mix.

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports that Cole Hamels' no-trade clause "continues to be a roadblock" when it comes to the Red Sox trying to acquire him.

Advice: The Red Sox have often been connected to Hamels since last offseason, but Bradford says they "aren’t a likely landing spot" due to them being on the southpaw's no-trade list. The Astros have run into the same problem, as they've pursued Hamels heavily but it doesn't sound like the lefty wants to go there. The Dodgers and Rangers look like the favorites for Hamels at the moment.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Astros are "making a strong effort" for Cole Hamels.

Advice: ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported something similar on Tuesday. It's still unknown whether Hamels would wind up approving a deal to Houston, but it appears the Astros are giving it their best shot. The Phillies have reportedly told teams to get their best offers in for Hamels on Wednesday.

Cole Hamels' next start has been pushed to Friday.

Advice: Hamels is scheduled to start Thursday, but the Phillies obviously don't want to use him one day before the July 31 trade deadline. His start Friday will likely be in a different uniform. The left-hander threw a no-hitter against the Cubs on Saturday afternoon.

According to Jayson Stark of ESPN, the Phillies have told several teams interested in Cole Hamels that they'd like to get their "best" offers by Wednesday.

Advice: Coming off a no-hitter, Hamels is currently scheduled to make his next start Thursday against the Braves. The Phillies would apparently prefer to make a decision before that, but there's a chance this situation could drag into Friday. The Dodgers and Rangers have been considered the favorites to land Hamels in recent days, but the Phillies have also spoken with the Cubs, Giants, Astros, Diamondbacks, Yankees, and Red Sox.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Giants are making a "strong push" to acquire Cole Hamels from the Phillies.

Advice: Rosenthal notes that the Giants have $50 million coming off the payroll at the end of the season, so adding Hamels wouldn't break the bank. The Giants' biggest competition might be the division rival Dodgers, though the Rangers, Yankees, Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Astros have also been mentioned as possibilities.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Astros "were told weeks ago" that Cole Hamels would not approve a trade to Houston.

Advice: It apparently hasn't kept the Astros from pursuing him, as both Stark and his colleague, Jerry Crasnick, are hearing that Houston is making a late push for the left-hander. Whether they'd be able to offer the best package and talk the left-hander into changing his mind remains to be seen.
