MLB Rumors: Will Phillies Trade Cole Hamels To Padres For Andrew Cashner Or Red Sox For Blake Swihart?

The Philadelphia Phillies will trade Cole Hamels. That much appears certain. As we draw closer and closer to Spring Training (although, you would never know that if you live in the Northeast), many MLB teams still have a need to add a quality starting pitcher, while the Phillies have an even bigger need to focus on rebuilding by paring down some of their payroll. Philadelphia has Hamels under its control for a few more seasons, meaning the team does not need to deal its best player. Yet, when you look at the fact that this team is simply nowhere near being able to compete with the Washington Nationals, Atlanta Braves and the rest of the National League East, it is clearly time for the Phillies to tear things down and start over. Hamels is the team’s biggest asset, meaning they must trade him, whether they see that now or not until the MLB Trade Deadline in August, remains to be seen.
