Well That Didn’t Take Long

Not two weeks in to his Major League career, Cole Hamels misses his first start due to injury.

From the AP:

Rookie pitcher Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies experienced soreness in the back of his left shoulder while throwing in the outfield Tuesday and was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday night against the New York Mets.

Hamels will return to Philadelphia on Wednesday for an evaluation. To replace him, the Phillies will start Jon Lieber against the Mets on Wednesday, with Brett Myers going Thursday afternoon.

So how ’bout those Sixers and their 13th overall pick?
