Cole Hamels suffers a setback

Not good news for the Phillies:

Cole Hamels suffers setback. Said he is fatigued. No pain in shoulder. But obviously not good news. Wouldn’t say if he could pitch in April.

He was set to throw live batting practice, but now there isn’t a timetable.

It’s already going to require a series of gambles to pay off for the Phillies to contend this year. If Hamels is gone for long stretches, it’s pretty much an impossibility, I’d say.
