Hamels to miss next start

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced Tuesday that pitcher Cole Hamels will miss his next start with left shoulder inflammation.

The club, though, will not place the 27-year-old on the disabled list at this time.

In 25 starts for the MLB-best Phillies this season, Hamels has posted a 13-7 record with a 2.62 earned run average. He has recorded 155 strikeouts against 35 walks and held opponents to a .215 batting average.
