Aug. 29 3:28 PM PT4:28 PM MT5:28 PM CT6:28 PM ET18:28 ET22:28 GMT6:28 3:28 PM MST5:28 PM EST5:58 PM VEN2:28 UAE (+1)5:28 PM CT-Hamels treated the O's as birdfeed on Friday.
Analysis: Hamels pitched his best game since being acquired by Texas, striking out 10 in eight innings Friday night in a 4-1 win over the sinking Orioles. Hamels is a former World Series MVP.
Aug. 24 1:16 PM PT2:16 PM MT3:16 PM CT4:16 PM ET16:16 ET20:16 GMT4:16 1:16 PM MST3:16 PM EST3:46 PM VEN0:16 UAE (+1)3:16 PM CT-Hamels earned his first Texas win Sunday.
Analysis: The mercenary hurler allowed two runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out two.
Aug. 18 12:26 PM PT1:26 PM MT2:26 PM CT3:26 PM ET15:26 ET19:26 GMT3:26 12:26 PM MST2:26 PM EST2:56 PM VEN23:26 UAE2:26 PM CT-Hamels remained at 0-1 with his new club, allowing three runs over seven innings in Texas' 4-3 victory against Seattle on Monday.
Analysis: This was by far Hamels' best performance since joining the Rangers, though opponents are batting .303 in his three outings compared to .233 in his 20 games for Philadelphia.
Aug. 11 4:38 PM PT5:38 PM MT6:38 PM CT7:38 PM ET19:38 ET23:38 GMT7:38 4:38 PM MST6:38 PM EST7:08 PM VEN3:38 UAE (+1)6:38 PM CT-Hamels is on track to make his next start.
Analysis: Hamels was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday because of a sore left groin. He threw a bullpen session before Friday's game and says everything felt "pretty good." Texas has lost both of Hamels' starts since he was acquired from Philadelphia two weeks ago. If all goes well, he will start Monday against Seattle.
Aug. 1 2:22 PM PT3:22 PM MT4:22 PM CT5:22 PM ET17:22 ET21:22 GMT5:22 2:22 PM MST4:22 PM EST4:52 PM VEN1:22 UAE (+1)4:22 PM CT-Hamels was officially added to the Texas Rangers' active roster on Saturday.
Analysis: The three-time National League All-Star is scheduled to make his American League debut on Saturday night at home against the San Francisco Giants. In his last start for the Philadelphia Phillies, the 31-year-old left-hander no-hit the Chicago Cubs on July 25.
July 30 10:09 PM PT11:09 PM MT12:09 AM CT1:09 AM ET1:09 ET5:09 GMT13:09 10:09 PM MST12:09 AM EST12:39 AM VEN9:09 UAE12:09 AM CT-Hamels' locker was still intact in Philadelphia's clubhouse, as was Matt Harrison's in Texas' locker room.
Analysis: Details were still being finalized late Thursday night for the expected blockbuster deal that will send ace lefty Hamels and reliever Jake Diekman to the Rangers for Harrison and a package of top prospects. But players on both sides already talked like they had lost beloved teammates.
July 28 3:54 PM PT4:54 PM MT5:54 PM CT6:54 PM ET18:54 ET22:54 GMT6:54 3:54 PM MST5:54 PM EST6:24 PM VEN2:54 UAE (+1)5:54 PM CT-Hamels is being pushed back one day in Philadelphia's starting rotation and is not scheduled to start for the Phillies again until after Friday's trade deadline has passed.
Analysis: Hamels threw a season-high 129 pitches in Sunday's no-hitter over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. He is 6-7 with a 3.64 ERA in 20 starts. The decision gives Hamels an extra day of rest, and prevents him from getting hurt before Friday's 4 p.m. deadline to trade players without securing waivers.
July 25 4:02 PM PT5:02 PM MT6:02 PM CT7:02 PM ET19:02 ET23:02 GMT7:02 4:02 PM MST6:02 PM EST6:32 PM VEN3:02 UAE (+1)6:02 PM CT-Hamels enhanced his trade value even more, becoming the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs in 50 years while leading Philadelphia to a 5-0 win Saturday.
Analysis: Hamels struck out 13 in the first no-hitter versus the Cubs since Sandy Koufax pitched a perfect game in 1965.

Analysis: Hamels, who gave up six hits over seven shutout innings, is 0-3 with a 3.06 ERA since his last victory.
June 25 2:21 PM PT3:21 PM MT4:21 PM CT5:21 PM ET17:21 ET21:21 GMT5:21 2:21 PM MST4:21 PM EST4:51 PM VEN1:21 UAE (+1)4:21 PM CT-Hamels didn't help his trade value Wednesday.
Analysis: After missing his previous turn because of a strained right hamstring, Hamels allowed five runs, eight hits and three walks in five innings. Signed at $22.5 million a season through 2018, he is among the veterans the last-place Phillies may trade by the end of July.

Hamels is 5-5 with a 2.96 ERA. The three-time All-Star and 2008 World Series MVP is a valuable trade asset for rebuilding Philadelphia, which has the worst record in the majors.
Analysis: Right-hander Phillippe Aumont will be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Philadelphia's game against St. Louis on Friday night instead of Hamels. Aumont was converted to starter this season after struggling as a reliever since the Phillies acquired him from Seattle in the Cliff Lee trade of December 2009.
