The contract situation for Hamels, who is a free agent at the end of this season, has been a hot topic among Phillies fans.
"Cole's not the only issue that we have right now. We've got a lot of other ones," Amaro said. "We've got a third baseman [Placido Polanco] who's going to be a free agent. We've got a center fielder [Shane Victorino] who's going to be a free agent. We've got a starting pitcher in [Joe] Blanton who's going to be a free agent. We've got another starter in Cole. They're are a lot of pieces to the puzzle.
"[Cole is] one of the priorities. But we're still trying to figure out what we're going to do with our club. He is a priority. There's no question we'd like to keep him. We have a lot of other things to think about, too."
