Hamels and Park, lineups

Your Inquirer baseball team has today covered from both sides of Florida. Back in Clearwater, Jim Salisbury reports that Cole Hamels long-tossed this morning. Jim also spoke with Chan Ho Park, who confirmed that he is experiencing soreness in his left hamstring after slipping while throwing a pitch to Albert Pujols Sunday. Park was able to throw a bullpen session today, and believes he'lll start Saturday--though he'll know more about that tomorrow.

Hamels and Park, lineups

Your Inquirer baseball team has today covered from both sides of Florida.  Back in Clearwater, Jim Salisbury reports that Cole Hamels long-tossed this morning.  Jim also spoke with Chan Ho Park, who confirmed that he is experiencing soreness in his left hamstring after slipping while throwing a pitch to Albert Pujols Sunday.  Park was able to throw a bullpen session today, and believes he'lll start Saturday--though he'll know more about that tomorrow.

Here in Jupiter, a gray day with thunderstorms in the forecast.  Here's the lineup for the 1:05 game against the Marlins:

Ozuna 2B

Donald SS

Ibanez LF

Howard 1B

Werth CF

Jenkins RF

Giles 3B

Coste C

Blanton P

UPDATE--  Hamels had this to say after long-tossing: "I felt good, but I had no problem long-tossing (before).  A bullpen session will be the test."

In other words, because Hamels' elbow only bothered him between innings of games that he pitched, long-tossing at 150 feet did not provide a true test of his health.  But it ain't a bad thing that he felt good.  No word yet on when Hamels will throw his first bullpen session.
