Hamels (13-4) mowed down 10 Rays while allowing just an earned run on three hits and two walks over 7.1 innings in Friday's 6-2 victory.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw was in vintage form, firing 69 of 104 pitches for strikes and notching an impressive 15 swinging strikes overall. Hamels now has five straight quality starts but has only gone 2-2 over that span due to lack of run support in some of those appearances. He'll look to keep his solid stretch of pitching going when he takes on the Reds next Wednesday.

Hamels allowed two runs on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Monday against Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Hamels did enough to keep his club in the game, and the Rangers eventually won behind a three-run ninth inning rally. He was nasty, as he induced 20 swinging strikes in 115 pitches, but he was inefficient in part thanks to just 12 first-pitch strikes to 24 hitters. Still, Hamels is in excellent form, as he hasn't allowed more than three runs since July 8 against Minnesota, a five start stretch. In that span, he has dropped his ERA from 3.21 to 2.89.

Hamels (12-3) pitched seven innings, allowing three runs, four hits and four walks while striking out six Orioles in Wednesday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

Entering the game, Hamels was 7-1 in his previous 11 starts and 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA since the All-Star break. On Wednesday, the lefty showed that he's still locked in at that high level, but just lost focus in one costly inning. Hamels yielded three runs and three hits in a rocky first inning, then retired 13 of the next 14 batters without allowing a hit. Surprisingly, Orioles starter Kevin Gausman, who entered the game with just two victories, outdueled Hamels in this one. Despite hit hot arm, owners may want to use caution before deploying Hamels in his next start Monday at Coors Field.

Hamels (12-2) struck out a dozen Royals over eight innings Thursday, allowing just two runs on six hits and a walk in a 3-2 victory.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals are usually a fairly contact-oriented team, as Hamels saw in his start against them last weekend, when he struck out just four. But apparently he picked something up, as the second go-around saw him whiff all but one of Kansas City's starting lineup. This was only his second double-digit-strikeout game of the year, but he's still averaging nearly a whiff per inning nonetheless.

Hamels (11-2) allowed one unearned run on five hits and three walks while striking out four over 5.1 innings to earn the win Saturday at the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Despite struggling with control issues, Hamels left the contest with a two-run lead before the Rangers' offense was able to put away the game in the latter innings. He's now held opponents to one or fewer earned runs in six of his last eight starts, and he boasts a 2.87 ERA in 2016. He'll make his next start Thursday against 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.
