Cole Hamels' Fine-tuning Continues Today Against Baltimore

Cole Hamels' Fine-tuning Continues Today Against Baltimore
March 8, 2011, 7:51 am

While Dom Brown had successful surgery on his right hand this morning and mum is the word on Chase Utley's knee, the rest of the Phillies are back in action today in Clearwater as they take on the Baltimore Orioles.

Much of the conversation down in Florida this spring has revolved around the injuries, but one guy who is feeling just fine and appears to be in the best shape of his life, Cole Hamels, will take the mound today and look to continue his prep work for what most are anticipating being a huge year for the former World Series MVP.

Cole has been sharp all spring and has only given up two hits in his six innings of work while striking out five and walking only two batters. Just a reminder that despite all the injury panic, there are plenty of positives to focus on from Florida.

Listen to today's game on MLB.com here and follow along on gameday here.

Ben Francisco will get the day off due to a stiff neck and Delwyn Young will get the nod in right.

1:05 scheduled start time from Bright House Field.
