Cole Hamels in Present:

On Tuesday, the Phillies says, “It is the good news for Hamels that his elbow is not damaged.”

The Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro Junior says, "He'll start when he's ready to start." "If it's Opening Day, it's Opening Day. If it's some time beyond that, then that's when it will be. He'll let us know what the pace is. It'll depend on how he continues to progress. For us, again, it's the same old mantra: It's not about Opening Day. It's about 162 games, and hopefully beyond 162 games, that we really have to worry about."

Amaro says, "Anytime a guy is logging a lot more innings than he has in the past, you have to monitor it." "Hopefully it's a learning experience for Cole and for us, as far as how he prepares himself in the off-season and making sure these things don't occur."

"He was progressing. His velocity was progressing. He never throws hard early. He's a terrible Spring Training guy, and it takes him a while to get his arm speed up. He's a slow starter. What would have concerned me was if he had regressed -- if he had gone from 83 to 84 [mph] to 79 to 80, and that was not happening. His strength is still good. He just had soreness that was persistent, and that was the reason why we had to deal with it." aAmaro Junior told to Hamels, "You want him to be up there and pitching." "Obviously, that'll be the telltale sign that Cole is back and pitching. But overall this is pretty good news. Until he's up on the mound, pitching and competing, then we'll know that Cole is pitching like Cole can. But overall, we're pretty pleased with the way things have worked out."
