Southpaw Cole Hamels signed a one-year deal with the Atlanta Braves in the off-season. Before the coronavirus pandemic, he signed a one-year, $18 million deal.
Hamels may never get to play with the Braves due to an injury. He has been placed on a 45-day injured list due to left triceps tendinitis.
The veteran left-handed suffered the shoulder injury during spring training. But the triceps injury flared up again earlier this month when the Braves were preparing for the season.
With a 60-game schedule, there’s a chance that Hamels joins the team later in the season, potentially in September. If he’s healthy, he could join the team for a potential playoff run.
However, if he does return, it’ll all depend on how his injury heals over the next several weeks. If it does not heal right, the Braves will shut down the veteran.
Without Hamels, the Braves have a spot in their rotation up for grabs. The team recently signed veteran pitcher Jhoulys Chacín to help replace Hamels.
Presently, there are six starting pitchers, who are battling to be a part of the team’s five-man starting rotating, according to MLB.com. Besides Chacín, Mike Soroka, Max Fried, Sean Newcomb, Kyle Wright, and Mike Foltynewicz.
