Hamels feels fine day after return to mound

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- The Phillies said Thursday that Cole Hamels felt fine following a bullpen session Wednesday at Bright House Field.

It was the first time he had thrown from a mound since March 1.

Phillies pitching coach Bob McClure said he had no idea when Hamels will throw next, however. Hamels could miss at least the first month of the season following left shoulder issues.
