Padres, Cole Hamels In Agreement On Minor League Deal

The Padres and left-hander Cole Hamels are in agreement on a minor league deal, reports Robert Murray of FanSided. Presumably, Hamels will receive an invitation to major league Spring Training once the deal is finalized. The southpaw is represented by John Boggs & Associates.

Hamels, 39, is a wild card at this point in his career. He spent many years as one of the most reliable and consistent hurlers in the big leagues but has barely pitched at all over the past three seasons. From 2006 through 2019, he logged just shy of 2,700 innings with a 3.42 ERA in that time. He pitched at least 132 frames in all 14 of those campaigns and topped 180 in 11 of them. His ERA was never higher than 4.32 in any individual season and he kept that mark under 4.00 in all but three of those years. He also pitched in the postseason in eight of those campaigns, winning NLCS and World Series MVP honors in 2008 with the world champion Phillies.

He's on track for my PHoM, but he needs to add some bulk and get to 200 wins to have a chance with real HoF. Outside of a Moyer-like second act, I'm not sure that's happening.

I hope he gets a chance to pitch for the Padres. That would make two hometown guys on the staff with he and Musgrove.

That seems like the team where he's lesat likely to get an opportunity.
