The 30-year-old left-hander, sidelined for the first three weeks because of biceps tendinitis, attempted to get his 100th regular-season victory on Wednesday night.

Analysis: The Phillies' ace had slowed down his rehab from biceps tendinitis after feeling discomfort earlier in spring. Hamels entered camp behind the rest of the pitchers after battling biceps tendinitis in November. Since he's roughly a month behind the other members of the Phillies staff, Hamels is likely to begin the season on the disabled list and could miss the majority of April, too.
