Cole Hamels looked great in his most recent minor league rehab start Thursday with High-A Clearwater and Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg told Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com that they are leaning toward bringing him back to start next Wednesday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
Hamels was forced to begin the season on the 15-day disabled list due to left biceps tendinitis, but he showed no ill effects during his rehab stint, putting up a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 17 innings over three starts. He tossed seven innings of one-run ball on Thursday.
UPDATE: It’s official. Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that Hamels is confirmed to pitch next Wednesday.
