In Friday’s 14-9 loss against the Toronto Blue Jays, Cole Hamels made his 2010 spring training debut.
Tossing 32 pitches in two innings, Hamels allowed one run (a solo home run), two hits, and walked one. Hamels’ fastball topped at 89 mph, but he also showed a cutter and curveball. Hamels was confident in his cutter. In addition, Charlie Manuel acknowledged that Hamels’ curveball was good, especially to left-handed hitters.
In a “B” game, Jamie Moyer also made his spring debut. In three shutout innings, he allowed three hits and struck out three. 23 of his 31 pitches were for strikes.
Also on Friday, Tyson Gillies homered and Domonic Brown went 2-for-4. However, pitchers J.C Ramirez, Ryan Vogelsong, and Bill White struggled.
