Phillies' Hamels seems resigned to pitching for new team next season
by Michael Hurcomb |

Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels seems resigned to pitching for a new team in 2015, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

"It's unfortunate, but all great teams have that season or drought for a couple of years and then they start to rebuild," Hamels said during an interview Sunday with MLB Network Radio. "I know I'm young enough to be able to go out there and play, and I love playing in the city of Philadelphia. Nothing but the best. The fans have been great; the organization has been great to me. But I do understand that baseball is a game that will go on, even after I'm done playing.

"So you have to put that in perspective and not really be too down about it. It's something, where if it does happen, I completely understand. Hopefully there will be a time when I can come back before my career is over. But, at the same time, it's a business. It's baseball."

Hamels, who has been mentioned heavily in trade rumors, said his perfect scenario would be to pitch for "a team that wants to win."

"Whenever you're in the postseason, that's what you play the game for," Hamels said.

Orioles on Ryan Howard's pre-approved list for trades
by Igor Mello |

The Orioles and the Phillies discussed a package deal that included outfielder Marlon Byrd and first baseman Ryan Howard during the winter meetings, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports Saturday.

According to Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Orioles are one of eight teams on Howard's pre-approved list for trades. An American League team seems like an ideal landing spot for the veteran, who could spend the final two years of his contract as a designated hitter. However, according to Heyman, there's "not a lot there at the moment" between the two clubs.

Howard has two years and a guaranteed $60 million remaining on his contract, with a $23 million option for 2017. He slashed .223/.310/.380 with 23 homers, 95 RBI while also striking out 190 times over 569 at-bats last season

Report: Phillies, Orioles discuss 1B Ryan Howard
by R.J. White |

The Phillies and Orioles have talked about first baseman Ryan Howard this week, the New York Daily News reports.

It's unclear how much interest the Orioles have in Howard, a player who has declined in recent years and is owed $25 million in each of the next two seasons as well as a $10 million buyout of his 2017 option. He hit .223/.310/.380 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 569 at-bats in 2014.
