If Cole Hamels was an everyday player, the five-game suspension the Philadelphia Phillies pitcher received for intentionally hitting Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper with a pitch might be considered significant. For pitchers, however, five games is next to nothing -- one start at best. And in Hamels' case this week, the suspension actually does amount to nothing as he really won't miss a turn in the rotation. He began serving the suspension Monday night, the day after the incident occurred.

One of the toughest jobs for a fantasy owner is deciding how long to stick with a struggling pitcher. Staff writer Tim Hubbard looks at four usually reliable starters whose problems on the mound are making life miserable for their owners. Cole Hamels Philadelphia Along with Roy Halladay, another of the Phillies' Big Three who has been uncharacteristically pedestrian in 2013. The left-hander went 0-6 in May and has a 5.32 ERA at home. On the plus side, he did strike out 11 Marlins last week … of course, they are the Marlins.

With the Dodgers still searching for a quality starting pitcher, and controlling owner Mark Walter saying the team is under no financial restrictions, Cliff Lee was put on trade waivers by the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Convenience or coincidence? It could be either. The Dodgers ramped up their batting order with the recent acquisitions of Hanley Ramirez and Shane Victorino but came up empty in their quest for a starting pitcher. The question now becomes, would they take on as much as $110 million in salary to add a pitcher who will be 38 years old when his contract expires?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The lockers of Cole Hamels and Clayton Kershaw were next to each other in the National League clubhouse, and Kershaw wasted no time throwing a recruiting pitch at Hamels. "You'd look good in Dodger blue," Kershaw told him. Hamels, the premier pitcher eligible for free agency, grew up in San Diego. He said he would be interested in the Dodgers or Angels, although he was not so sure the Angels would be interested in him. "The Angels are pretty set, aren't they?"

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels freely admits he intentionally hit Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper with a pitch in the first inning of Sunday night's game.  “I was trying to hit him,” Hamels said. “I'm not going to deny it.” The move -- and the blunt admission afterward -- is likely to cost Hamels a suspension from Major League Baseball. But at least he had a good reason for plunking the 19-year-old emerging star ... right? “That's something I grew up watching, that's kind of what happened.

Cole Hamels won't be on the free-agent market after this season after all. And he won't be traded before the July 31 deadline by the disappointing Philadelphia Phillies either. Instead, Hamels will stay put after agreeing to a six-year, $144-million contract with the Phillies that was announced by the team on Wednesday. A news conference is scheduled for 9 a.m. Pacific Time to formally announce the deal that includes a club vesting option for 2019 and a limited no-trade provision.

Bryce Harper, the rookie phenom on the once lowly Washington Nationals, will dig into the batter's box and look to exact some more revenge against the Phillies' lefthander Cole Hamels on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park. The last meeting of the two ended with Hamels being suspended and Harper rubbing a sore back as the Phillies pitcher “welcomed” the rookie into the league with a 93-mph purpose pitch to the kidneys ( see video above ). After the game, when reporters asked Hamels about the first pitch to the Nationals' right fielder, the pitcher simply said: “I was trying to hit him. I'm not going to deny it. I'm not trying to injure the guy. They're probably not going to like me for it, but I'm not going to say I wasn't trying to do it. I think they understood the message.” And in case you didn't get the message, Hamels continued, “[It's the]

Although the Red Sox are among the teams exploring the shortstop market, don't be surprised if they do little other than add a bullpen arm or two before the deadline. Scouts who saw them play the White Sox believe they could be stronger than the Yankees once David Ortiz joins a lineup that has Carl Crawford playing at a level he rarely showed a year ago....

Chad Billingsley was cleared to resume throwing Monday after a second MRI exam of the pitcher's right elbow showed the same inflammation discovered a day earlier. But it was unclear when Billingsley might make his next start. Billingsley was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday because of the soreness, with Chris Capuano taking his place. Nathan Eovaldi's next start also was moved up one day, to Monday night, but the Dodgers did not say who would pitch Tuesday.
