Scout: Boston Is Likely Cole Hamels Destination

Coming To A Park Near You?
A report on quotes a "rival" scout as suggesting that a deal involving Cole Hamels makes sense for both teams. Says the scout, "There’s a deal to be made there, absolutely. The AL East is there for the taking....I think the team with the most resources to get him is Boston. They have the talent and can take the financial hit...The Red Sox have enough minor-league talent that they can move some of it if they want to make a deal." The scout went on to detail the bevy of Sox prospects (other than the 'untouchable' Blake Swihart and Mookie Betts) who could improve the competitiveness of the Phillies. Chief among these was 3B Rafael Devers (who we profiled yesterday on FenwayNation). Hamels makes another start tonight for Philadelphia. Stay tuned!
