Cole Hamels made a rehab start Saturday at Class A Clearwater. Hamels allowed one run on five hits and no walks while striking out six over six innings of work.
This was Hamels second rehab start and he showed significant improvement across the boards. The Phillies will likely have him do at least one more, probably at the Triple-A level, and put him on track to return by GM Ruben Amaro's April 22 target date.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Mo Williams (knee) will play Friday against the Wizards.
As he has been playing through this knee issue, Williams' shooting percentage has been dreadfully low (23-percent). Considering this, do exactly what the Hornets are doing: play him with caution. Williams is a tealented guard, but be reasonable with your expectations, as he has struggled with his shot while dealing with the injury. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Brad Miller not in the Mariners lineup Friday because of an illness.
Considering Miller committed an atrocious 18 errors in a mere 107 games last season, one would be led to believe that he has the plate presence of Tony Gwynn in order to hold down the Mariners starting shortstop position, however that is not at all the case, as Miller hit a lowly .221, with 10 homers, 36 RBI, and boasted an inexcuseable .288 OBP in 2014. Stay away from him in drafts. Analysis: Dom Murtha
