    Player Outlook

    Cole Hamels has reached the stage of his career where some decline can be expected, but at least in terms of his skill indicators, none is readily apparent. He is still roughly a strikeout per inning pitcher with decent control. About to embark on his first full season with the Rangers, being out of Citizens Bank Park should help Hamels, as should the improved run support with the Rangers, though being in the American League could neutralize some of those advantages. Hamels was a top 20 starter in 2015, and he should attain that status yet again in 2016.

    • Rangers' Cole Hamels: Turns in quality start Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hamels was charged with four runs (two earned) on six hits over seven innings against the Blue Jays on Friday in Game 2 of the ALDS. He struck out six and did not issue a walk. Both Hamels and Toronto starter Marcus Stroman turned in strong performances, but the bullpens ended up deciding the game, with the Rangers getting two runs off LaTroy Hawkins in the 14th inning. The Rangers are in great position, now up 2-0 and heading to Texas, and Hamels likely won't pitch until the Championship Series unless the Blue Jays win two in a row.

    • Rangers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo will start Game 1 of ALDS against the Blue Jays on Thursday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Cole Hamels went nine innings on Sunday, so he wasn't available to make the start, leaving Gallardo next in line for the opportunity. However, considering Gallardo's struggles as of late (he's made it through six innings just once since the start of August), he will probably be on a short leash. Hamels and his 3.65 ERA will likely take the mound in Game 2.

    • Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels will start Sunday against the Angels, MLB.com's Phil Rogers reports. He would not have pitched again until the postseason but the Rangers collapsed Saturday and Sunday's game now carries a great deal of importance. Garrett Richards will start on short rest for the Angels.

    • After a slow start to his American League career, Rangers starter Cole Hamels continued to prove himself a worthy pickup with an easy win Thursday. He went six shutout innings while allowing four hits and three walks in a 9-1 victory over Oakland. The Rangers have now won eight straight games in which Hamels has started and it's clear that trade really catapulted this impressive run that will likely win them their division. Over his last six starts, Hamels has a 2.57 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 39 strikeouts in 42 innings pitched. The length is what the Rangers appreciate most though, as he's gone at least six innings in every outing with his new team.

    • Rangers SP Cole Hamels' next start to be Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rangers starting pitcher Cole Hamels' next start was moved up to Thursday in Oakland. This is a nice break for his fantasy owners, as Hamels will now be able to make three more starts this season instead of two. Yovani Gallardo will switch places with Hamels and take the ball Friday against the Astros.
