Cole Hamels Will Miss Start Due to a Gastrointestinal Illness

Cole Hamels doesn’t feel so hot. The Phils ace will miss his Wednesday start against the Mets due to gastrointestinal illness. Yum. Instead of spending anytime worrying about the details of that, we’ll focus on the fact that the Phillies have called up Tyler Cloyd to make his Major League debut in Hamels’ place. Cloyd is a 25-year-old RHP who has posted a 12-1 record with Lehigh Valley this season.
