Hamels, who had an outstanding rookie season, struggled in his previous three starts and entered with a 7.00 ERA. The left-hander has been working on establishing an inside fastball. All five homers he's allowed this spring were on fastballs that didn't get far enough inside.
"I was able to execute and my timing was a lot better," Hamels said. "Now I know I'm ready. It's a big help."

"Faberge eggs, china dolls, ice sculptures, Cole Hamels. If this were that pyramid gameshow, the category would be "beautiful things that are fragile."
These are the opening 2 sentences in Baseball Prospectus' write-up on Hamels.
Hamel's injury history is really weird, there isn't much significant that is baseball related.
