    While I was out of power, multiple outlets reported that the Phillies have begun shopping Cole Hamels around the league as we approach the non-waiver trade deadline at the end of this month. Though it’s easy to see why the Phillies are begin to think of selling, what with being stuck in last place at nine games below .500 entering play today and, in just the second year of The Greatest Rotation Ever era having already been replaced as the most universally overrated team in baseball by the Rangers, Ruben Amaro Jr. is apparently holding out hope that Hamels can be extended and, via Buster Olney, is asking a king’s ransom for Hamels at the moment.

    Via Chad Jennings, Joba Chamberlain threw a 40 pitch live batting practice session yesterday, and is scheduled for a simulated game on Friday. That puts him on schedule to begin a minor league rehab stint in roughly two weeks, give or take. If there are no setbacks, that puts his timetable for a return to the big leagues at about 6-7 weeks following Tommy John surgery and that severe ankle dislocation. In other news, I’m still beyond amazed at how quickly Joba has progressed in his rehab work over the spring months.
