News: 5 days agoHamels (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Spin: Hamels had been dealing with a shoulder issue that dates back to an offseason workout. He indicated that he would have been on schedule to pitch by late May but stretched out his rehab schedule due to the delayed season. Friday's bullpen session was his third as he works his way back into game shape. He's expected to be used cautiously in his first few starts of the year, but he is expected to be on the Opening Day roster.
