Cole Hamels allowed three runs while striking out seven and walking none over seven innings of the no-decision Thursday against the Marlins.
All three runs came on solo-home runs, which were the first home runs Hamels had allowed over his last six starts. The quality start was Hamels sixth consecutive and ninth over his last ten starts. The lefty will look to continue that streak in his next start on Wednesday in a rematch with the Marlins, this time in Miami.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The CT scan taken on SS Jean Segura came back negative.
The good news is Segura seems to be alright after taking a fastball to the helmet from Pedro Strop n Sunday afternoon and was shaken up after the game. It looks like he has avoided serious injury and might not even need a trip to the disabled list. Segura has had a nice start to the season batting .289/.324/.381 with one home run and five stolen bases in 25 games. Analysis: Drew Phelps
A clause in QB Jameis Winston's contract prohibits him from playing baseball.
The days of the two-sport start are going out the window with too much money on the tables and Winston's contract is at the forefront. He will no longer be able to pursue a baseball career, unlike Russell Wilson, who still has that opportunity for the Texas Rangers. For $25 million, the Buccaneers want to be sure their quarterback of the future is healthy and focused only on football. Analysis: Rob Trayah
