Phillies announce $144 million extension with Cole Hamels

By C. Trent Rosecrans | Blogger

It's official -- Cole Hamels has signed a six-year extension worth $144 million with the Phillies.

Philadelphia put out a press released Wednesday morning that said the two sides had agreed to the extension through the 2018 season with a club/vesting option for 2019. Hamels will also have a limited no-trade provision until his five-and-10 rights kick in.

With the 28-year-old left-hander off the market, Milwaukee's Zack Greinke becomes the belle of the trade deadline ball, unless perhaps the Marlins are serious about dealing Josh Johnson.
