Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said  "it's possible" Cole Hamels (biceps) will make his final rehab start Thursday.

The target date for Hamels to return is April 22nd and a Thursday start would keep him on track. The only reason he doesn't make the start is to spare his shoulder any additional wear and tear so he'd be looking at a series of simulated sessions instead. Either way, get ready to activate, not this week, but next.ANALYST: Howard Bender
