FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Cole Hamels allowed just one run on four hits and no walks while striking out nine batters over seven innings in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Braves. 

Hamels tossed a gem on Saturday, as he improved to 4-5 with a 2.83 ERA and 1.17 WHIP through his first 17 starts. Despite a poor record, Hamels has pitched excellent in 2014, having allowed three runs or less in all but three trips to the mound while owning an impressive 115:38 K:BB rate over 114.1 innings. He will look to get back to .500 when he takes on Tim Hudson and the Giants on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
