Phillies Make Cole Hamels Available, Dodgers Interested

With the MLB trade deadline only days away, rumors continue to swirl around the Philadelphia Phillies, who have fallen from being one of the MLB’s top teams to a cellar dwellar in a matter of just three years.

Still, the Phillies have assets, and according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, they have made one of their top trade pieces, lefty pitcher Cole Hamels, available on the trade market.

Morosi also notes that the Dodgers are interested in Hamels, but that the price remains high—as many as three top prospects, according to Nick Cafardo.

Hamels is having another very solid year for the Philes, having posted a 2.72 ERA through 18 starts. The former World Series MVP and three-time All-Star would be a very strong second southpaw behind ace Clayton Kershaw for the Dodgers.

This interest also makes sense because Hamels hails from SoCal and cannot block any trade to the Dodgers due to his limited no-trade clause.

The Dodgers’ two top prospects are OF Joc Pederson and SS Corey Seager, who play for the LA’s Triple-A and Double-A affiliates respectively. It is likely that the Phillies would want at least one, if not both, of those guys in any trade for Hamels.
