Cole Hamels (biceps) is expected to start Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Hamels threw seven innings of one-run ball for High-A Clearwater on Thursday and allowed just three hits in what was expected to be his final rehab start before heading back to the majors. There was talk of actually bringing him up Tuesday, but manager Ryne Sandberg wants to set it up so that A.J. Burnett is between his two lefties, Hamels and Cliff Lee. It's a tough match-up against the Dodgers but it's also hard to tell you to sit him for his season debut. Gun to my head, I say start him and take the chance. How bad could it be?
