Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels reported feeling “really good” this morning, two days after throwing a 20-pitch bullpen session to test his injured shoulder, and Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com writes that he’s slated to throw another bullpen session Sunday.

However, according to Hamels the Sunday session will likely only be at “around 60 to 65 percent throwing” intensity, so there’s no timetable yet for his regular season debut. Salisbury reports that “Phillies officials are holding out hope he could pitch sometime in April, but May 1 might be a more realistic target.”

Good news, but still a lot of hurdles to clear.

      Putin doesn’t believe anything the Phils say either.

    So if he’s scheduled to throw a bullpen on Sunday, I assume he’ll be placed on the DL sometime around Tuesday?
