    • Hamels (oblique) said he would play catch for another week before ramping up his throwing program, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Hamels has experienced no renewed soreness with his strained right oblique after throwing on consecutive days, but the Rangers will still have him take it easy for the next few days before having him test things out on a mound. There's been no change in the eight-week recovery timetable the Rangers initially outlined for Hamels back on May 3, so it's not expected that he'll rejoin the rotation until shortly before the All-Star break.

    • Rangers' Cole Hamels: Resumes throwing Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hamels (oblique) played catch Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Although he's likely still out until the All-Star break, the fact that Hamels has started to throw again is a positive sign of progress. According to Wilson, Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail was impressed with the zip Hamels was getting on his tosses Tuesday. The next step of Hamels' rehab process will likely be decided after the club sees how his oblique responds to the increased activity in the coming days.

    • Hamels was placed on the 10-day DL Wednesday with a right oblique strain and is expected to miss about eight weeks, the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant reports. He suffered the injury while warming up for his start on Tuesday before eventually being scratched. This is a huge blow to the Rangers and Hamels' fantasy owners, as it was thought he might only need a couple weeks off before returning to the rotation, but might now be out until the All-Star break. Nick Martinez is expected to remain in the rotation for the time being, as Tyson Ross (shoulder) has yet to go on a rehab assignment.

    • Hamels was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Astros due to tightness in his oblique, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. It's unclear if the oblique tightness flared up during warmups or if this is something that has been bothering Hamels in the past. Either way, the starter will not pitch Tuesday against the Astros in a very last-minute scratch. Alex Claudio will take the mound for his first major-league start in Hamels' absence. More news on the injury should become available in the near future.

    • Rangers' Cole Hamels: Beats Twins with quality start
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hamels (2-0) allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks across 6.2 innings in Wednesday's win over the Twins. He struck out one. Hamels cruised after allowing a two-run homer in the second inning, with the only other run on his ledger coming after the bullpen let an inherited runner score with two outs in the seventh inning. He induced 10 ground balls, including a pair of double plays, as he delivered his fourth quality start in five tries. Hamels has been a consistent performer through the opening weeks of the season and will carry a 3.03 ERA to go along with a 1.13 WHIP into Tuesday's start against the Astros.
