The Phillies and Cole Hamels have agreed to a three year deal worth 20.5 million dollars. The Phillies lock up one of the best young pitchers in the game through his arbitration years, after he posted a 4-0 record with a 1.80 ERA in the playoffs. Hamels was 14-10 with a 3.09 ERA and 196 K in 33 games for the Phillies last season, and owns a 38-23 career record. The Phillies could try to do something similar with Ryan Howard, but they could look to move him for prospects instead.
