Cole Hamels will not be ready to start the season for the Philadelphia Phillies but the left hander is set to begin throwing.
Hamels will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday.
The Phillies believe Hamels will be ready to go in early April.
Hamels will throw his first bullpen tomorrow (wed). He is doing well, pitching coach McClure said. Scheduling matter.
