Cubs' Cole Hamels: Dominates again in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamels didn't factor into the decision against the Nationals on Sunday, giving up just one earned run and one hit over seven innings, striking out nine and walking one in the Cubs' 4-3 victory.

The left-hander continues to thrive in his new surroundings, as he's now given up just two earned runs in 18 innings since making his Cubs debut August 1. The change of scenery appears to be just what Hamels needed to get his season on track, and he looks poised to reward owners who stayed patient with him through his struggles with the Rangers earlier this season.

Cubs' Cole Hamels: Delivers six one-run innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamels (7-9) delivered six innings of one-run ball en route to a win over the Royals on Monday, allowing seven hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

Hamels allowed a run on two hits in the second inning, but he settled down and scattered baserunners the rest of the way as he limited the hosts to one. He threw 68 percent of his pitches for strikes, and though he couldn't strike hitters out as effectively as he did in his Cubs debut, he invited plenty of weak contact to record outs. Hamels has now allowed just one earned run across 11 innings since arriving in a trade with the Rangers and appears to have benefited from the change of scenery. He'll next get the ball this weekend against the Nationals.

Cubs' Cole Hamels: Dominates in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamels (6-9) picked up a win Wednesday in the Cubs' 9-2 triumph over the Pirates, striking out nine while allowing one unearned run on three hits and two walks over five innings.

The Cubs scored four runs in the top of the first inning to provide Hamels with an early cushion in his team debut, though the lefty didn't require much offensive support. Hamels' changeup looked especially sharp during the outing, with the 34-year-old collecting six of his nine punchouts with that offering. He didn't merely get by on fooling the Pirates with off-speed stuff, however. According to Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com, Hamels' fastball maxed out at 96.4 miles per hour, representing the hardest pitch he has thrown in over two years. The uptick in velocity -- along with a cushy matchup his next time out against the 34-73 Royals -- may embolden fantasy players in shallower formats to scoop Hamels off the wire if he's still available.

Cubs' Cole Hamels: In line for start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamels will take the mound for his Cubs debut against the Pirates on Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Hamels will be pitching on eight days of rest after facing Oakland on Monday during his final start with Texas. In order to make room for Hamels in the rotation, Tyler Chatwood was moved to the bullpen. Across 20 starts this year, Hamels has posted a 4.72 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with a 9.0 K/9.

Cubs' Cole Hamels: Officially lands with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hamels was traded to the Cubs on Friday in exchange for Eddie Butler, Rollie Lacy and a player to be named later, Jay Cohen of the Chicago Daily Chronicle reports.

Hamels has struggled mightily throughout the 2018 campaign, posting the worst ERA of his career (4.72) over 20 starts this season. The Cubs are hoping the veteran lefty can improve their depleted rotation, as Yu Darvish (shoulder) and Drew Smyly (elbow) are still a ways off from a return to action. Hamels figures to slot in as the No. 4 starter until Chicago's pitching staff manages to become healthy.
