In what was very likely his final minor league rehab start, Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings for Class-A Clearwater on Thursday night. Hamels allowed one run on three hits while walking one and striking out two.
After a shaky start to his rehab Hamels has been lights out since and will be a welcome addition to both the Phillies rotation and your fantasy team for those who remained patience during his recovery. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
