Phillies, contenders eager to see healthy Hamels

Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels will pitch against the Yankees on Wednesday after missing Friday’s start against the Cardinals because of tightness in his right hamstring. He threw a bullpen session Sunday in Philadelphia and gave a reporter the thumbs up when asked if it went well and if he planned to pitch in New York. That is good news for Hamels, the Phillies and contending teams everywhere.
