Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels, who I just traded for in my Fantasy Pros 911 Writers League (this was literally his first start on my roster) has sprained his ankle. So yeah. Thanks for that.
The lefty exited Tuesday night's game against the horrible Washington Nationals in the fifth inning after he appeared to have snagged his metal cleat while trying to field a John Lannan bunt.
This marks the second straight start in which the reigning World Series MVP left early, after a Prince Fielder line drive nailed his pitching shoulder during last Thursday's outing against the Milwaukee Brewers in the fourth inning.
Hamels, still winless on the season, left with a 5-0 lead after allowing four hits and striking out four in 4 1-3 innings. We'll keep you posted.
