Cubs, Rangers Discussing Cole Hamels Deal

Published

on

The Chicago Cubs are reportedly in “strong pursuit” of a trade for Texas Rangers’ starting pitcher Cole Hamels, according to MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM’s Jim Bowden.

Per Bowden, the Cubs would send lower-level prospects to Texas in exchange for Hamels.

According to Fancred’s Jon Heyman, there’s a “decent chance” of a trade being completed, sending Hamels back to the National League, where he spent the majority of his career while playing for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Hamels, 34, is in the final guaranteed season of his six-year, $144M contract, and this season has posted a meager 4.72 ERA, although he has experienced an uptick in his velocity since early season dips.
