Early in Phillies spring training a common theme has emerged. For whatever reason, several of Philadelphia's pitchers have suffered shoulder injuries.
The Philadelphia Phillies are expected to once again have two of the best pitchers in baseball anchoring their rotation. Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee are as good as any No. 1 and No.
Shortly after news broke that Cole Hamels will not be ready for Opening Day, the Phillies reached agreement on a one-year, $16 million deal with free agent A.J. Burnett.
While the Nats are unlikely to sign free agent starter A.J. Burnett, he may still land in the National League East division.
