Dubee on Hamels: ‘Opening Day is probably a long shot’

coleanddubeePitching coach Rich Dubee on Cole Hamels:

“I don’t know if it’s out of the question, but it looks like it’s probably a long shot.

“We have to get him up and running and we have to stretch him out. I think he’s been up to 52 or 54 pitches. We like our guys, if they’re going to pitch, hopefully they’ll be ready to throw 100 pitches by Opening Day. It could be a long shot. Again, this guy has always risen to the occasion. It’s good that we caught it when we did. It wasn’t getting cleared up. It wasn’t getting any worse, but it wasn’t getting any better.”
