Hamels' bullpen session goes smoothly

Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels threw a bullpen session yesterday without any problems. It was his first session since he received an anti-inflammatory injection on Tuesday.
"That was the point we were trying to make, taking five minutes off and seeing how it feels when I come back and throw a second time," Hamels said. "I went from the windup and felt good. That's the huge thing, to be able to feel comfortable that you're healthy and nothing is going to nag at every pitch."
The next step for Hamels, who threw a total of 41 pitches yesterday, is to throw 50 pitches in a minor-league game on Tuesday.

It's still unknown if he'll be ready to start for the Phillies on opening night (April 5th).
