Cole Hamels allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and four walks while striking out eight batters over seven innings taking the no-decision against the Mets on Sunday.
Hamels bounced back nicely from a rough start, but was unable to factor into the decision after yet another extra-inning game on Sunday. He is now 1-3 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through his first eight starts, averaging just over one strikeout per inning pitched (9.06 K/9). Although wins will be hard to come by moving forward, as long as he continues to rack up strikeouts he is a pitcher that should be started every time he takes the mound no matter the matchup. Hamels will look to get back to his winning ways when he takes on the Reds on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kyle Schwarber was reassigned to minor league camp.
A top pick in the 2014 draft, Schwarber is a great hitter who's biggest question mark is what position he will play. The stick is ahead of the glove, so the Cubs may chose to speed up his ETA and stick him in the outfield. In that case, he could be MLB ready in 2016 and fantasy relevant soon after that.
