PHILADELPHIA - Any hopes Phillies fans had of a reunion with pitcher Cole Hamels have been dashed.
According to MLB.com, the veteran pitcher has agreed to a one-year, $18 million deal with the Atlanta Braves.
Hamels, 35, pitched for the Phillies from 2006 to 2015. Since then, he’s played for the Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs.
The left-hander became a fan favorite during his time in Philadelphia, helping lead the team to two World Series appearances, including a World Series title in 2008.
