Braves: LHP Cole Hamels sent to 45-Day IL

dsc 5097

The inevitable happened.

The Braves sent veteran arm Cole Hamels to the 45-day DL today due to tricep tendinitis. David O’Brien broke the news moments ago.

The loss of newly-acquired Hamels eliminates a strong veteran presence around the clubhouse and, of course, opens up a spot in the rotation.

Hamels is expected to return mid-September. In the meantime, Touki Toussaint and Kyle Wright are available to fill the role.

The Braves open up their season tomorrow at Citi Field at 4:30 PM. Tune in to SportsTalkATL for in-game analysis and highlights.
