Cole Hamels suffered a setback in his recovery from tendonitis in his left shoulder. He’ll throw off a mound some time next week if he doesn’t suffer any more setbacks.
Hamels' health is a cause for concern in 2014 and with draft season upon us, this is not the type of news we want to hear. His draft stock continues to drop as Spring Training progresses, and is currently holding an ADP of 69.60 according to the NFBC. If you like to gamble, Hamels will likely come at an extreme value this year, just be cautious that this is the type of injury that could resurface through the season. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
John Brown is practicing Thursday.
Brown should be a full-go this week and will see a fair share of the targets regardless of Michael Floyd's status. Obviously he'll see more if Floyd is out, but even if he's in, Brown should have ample opportunities this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
