    • Hamels (11-6) allowed three runs on five hits and one walk across three innings to take the loss Sunday against the Athletics. He struck out five. Hamels struggled in the third inning, allowing four straight hits to begin the frame and surrendering three runs before he was able to escape. With nothing left to play for, the veteran was lifted prior to the fourth inning after working up to just 59 pitches. So concludes what will go down as a disappointing season for Hamels, who finishes with a 4.20 ERA and 105 strikeouts in 148 innings. He dealt with multiple injuries along the way, but he still flashed his potential at times and will look to return to his best form in the 2018 campaign.

    • Rangers' Cole Hamels: Status for weekend uncertain
      By RotoWire Staff

      Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News said it's his "guess" that Tuesday's start was Hamels' last of the 2017 season. The team is currently listing Sunday's probable starter as "TBA." Texas was officially eliminated from postseason contention with the loss Tuesday -- a loss which was attributed to Hamels (six runs over three innings). The Rangers are at home to close out the season, but it's possible they will shut Hamels down early and go with a bullpen game in the finale with nothing left to play for.

    • Rangers' Cole Hamels: Chased early by Astros
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hamels (11-5) took the loss in Tuesday's game against the Astros. He allowed six runs on six hits and four walks while striking out three over three-plus innings. Hamels was hit hard from the get-go Tuesday, as the veteran southpaw allowed four runs in the opening frame before even recording the first out. The disastrous outing -- which was his shortest of the season -- snapped his streak of three consecutive quality starts and inflated his ERA from 3.80 to 4.10. He'll close out the regular season against the A's on Sunday.

    • Hamels (11-4) allowed a single run on three hits and two walks while striking out eight batters through eight innings to take the win over Seattle on Thursday. The veteran lefty has found a groove of late with a 2.53 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 8.4 K/9 through his past three starts. Hamels had allowed 21 runs through 28.1 innings over a five-game stretch before his recent rebound, so this mid-September surge has helped stabilize his season-long numbers (3.80 ERA, 1.14 WHIP). It's definitely worth highlighting his career-worst 6.1 K/9, which is significantly lower than the 8.6 mark he posted through his first 11 seasons in the majors. Hamels has a daunting matchup against the Astros up next.

    • Rangers' Cole Hamels: Takes tough-luck loss Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hamels (10-4) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five batters through 7.1 innings during Saturday's loss to the Angels. Considering Hamels entered Saturday's outing with a 6.03 ERA over his previous six starts, this is a nice return to form. The veteran lefty owns a respectable 3.96 ERA and 1.17 WHIP for the campaign, but his 6.0 K/9 is well below the 8.6 career mark he entered the season with. Looking ahead, Hamels lines up for two tough upcoming starts. He'll face Seattle at Safeco Field and then host the Astros at home.
