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.
June 18 12:38 PM PT1:38 PM MT2:38 PM CT3:38 PM ET15:38 ET19:38 GMT3:38 12:38 PM MST2:38 PM EST3:08 PM VEN23:38 UAE2:38 PM CT-Hamels will miss at least one start because of a mild right hamstring strain. 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. He was 3-4 with a 2.35 ERA in 14 games, including 10 starts for the IronPigs.
