Rival GM: 'Hamels Is Staying Put' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jul 30, 2014 5:56 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies aren't serious about trading Cole Hamels, according to teams that have inquired about the left-hander.

The Phillies have requested packages of multiple top prospects from the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

As one rival general manager said, "Hamels is staying put."

The Phillies haven't said that specifically, but that is the indication teams are getting.

Hamels has a 2.72 ERA and trading him would save Philadelphia a significant amount of money over the next few seasons.
