Cole Hamels arrived at spring camp for the Atlanta Braves on Saturday. Atlanta signed Hamels this offseason to add a veteran option to the starting rotation but Hamels will get a bit of a late start after he irritated his shoulder during an offseason workout. Hamels is expected to miss the beginning of the season but arrived to camp on Saturday where he met with the media.
Hamels is looking to bring some veteran leadership to some of the Braves’ young pitchers. He also discussed where he is at with the shoulder injury and his decision to sign with Atlanta this offseason.
