Hamels (10-2) allowed one unearned run on four hits while striking out seven to earn the win Sunday at the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Hamels received a pair of runs from the Rangers' offense in the second inning, which was enough to help him win his 10th game of the year. After allowing five runs in each of his last two outings, he appears to be back on track, and he now has a 3.00 ERA on the season. He'll make his next start Saturday at the Royals.

Hamels is expected to get the start Sunday for his first start after the All-Star break, T,R, Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hamels has allowed 10 runs in his past 8.1 innings and gets a tough initial assignment in Wrigley, but the short week will provide limited opportunities to dip into your depth if you were leaning toward looking elsewhere in smaller leagues.

Hamels (9-2) allowed five runs on five hits and six walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings, but received no decision Friday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Hamels left with a 5-4 deficit, but the offense picked him up after his departure to take him off the hook for a potential loss. After posting a 1.51 ERA in June, he's allowed 10 runs in 8.1 innings over two July starts to raise his ERA to 3.21 on the year. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

Hamels (9-1) defeated the Yankees with seven shutout innings Tuesday, striking out seven while limiting them to six hits and one walk.

EDGE Analysis

Hamels was dominant all night en route to his fourth consecutive win. The former Phillies ace has been impressive in all aspects this season, but his 6-0 record in eight starts away from Globe Life Park in Arlington is especially eye-catching. He lands another favorable road matchup in his next outing Sunday at Minnesota.

Hamels (8-1) whiffed eight Reds over six innings of one-run ball Wednesday, allowing just five hits and two walks in a 6-4 win.

EDGE Analysis

The bullpen made this game closer than it needed to be, but Hamels gave them more than leeway to work with by way of his fifth straight quality start. He may not be quite as dominant as the good old days -- his 1.40 HR/9 and 3.44 BB/9 are both easily career worsts -- but the 32-year-old lefty has given fantasy owners precious little to complain about. That said, he's never had peripherals this ugly before, so the baseball gods may send some painful regression Hamels' way soon. He'll head to New York for a road start against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Hamels (7-1) silenced the Cardinals on Friday, keeping them off the scoreboard for 7.2 innings while allowing just three hits and three walks. He struck out six in the 1-0 win.

EDGE Analysis

For the fourth straight outing, Hamels notched a quality start while pitching seven-plus innings, a feat he hadn't accomplished since early June of last year. He lowered his ERA to 2.88 while notching more strikeout than he did in any of his previous four starts. Hamels has won more than 15 games just once in his impressive 10-year career entering 2016. This year, however, the 32-year-old is on pace to bypass 15 and challenge his personal record of 17 wins in a season.

Hamels tossed seven inning of one-run ball versus the Mariners on Sunday, striking out five and walking two en route to his sixth win of the season.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander was on point Sunday, as he allowed just four runners past first base and lowered his ERA to 3.14 with his third consecutive quality start. Hamels boasts a solid 8.8 K/9 rate to supplement that figure, and he is on pace to surpass last season's total of 13 wins for a red hot Rangers club. His next start will come Friday at St. Louis.

Hamels allowed just two runs with four strikeouts and four walks across seven innings Tuesday versus the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty delivered his fourth quality start in the last five outings, but the Rangers once again waited until the latter stages of the game to pull away and cost him a shot at a win. Hamels' performances of late have masked a couple of worrisome items, as he has a 14:9 K:BB ratio over his last three starts and has allowed 10 home runs over his last six. Nevertheless, he has a solid 3.32 ERA on the season and should improve upon that figure if he can get back to limiting the free passes as well as the long balls. His next chance to do so will come Sunday at Seattle.

Hamels allowed three runs on six hits, including a homer, over seven innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Wednesday. He also struck out five and walked three.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw has tossed up nine bombs in his last five outings, which has helped give him an alarmingly high 1.69 HR/9 rate. However, that will more than likely come down, as he has an unsustainable 26.7 HR/FB ratio. And despite all the homers, Hamels is still 5-1 with a 3.39 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 72 strikeouts in 69 innings. He will look to keep the ball in the park during his next start on Tuesday versus the Astros.
