MESA Reggie Jackson Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Chicago Cubs pitcher Cole Hamels has had a fun few days of firsts. Over the weekend, he recorded his first hole-in-one on a golf course, and on Monday night he hit a home run in his final spring training tuneup.Hamels has another first coming up when he faces the Texas Rangers in his initial start of the regular season. It’ll be the first time the left-hander has pitched against a former team.Although Cubs manager Joe Maddon had not announced the rotation order, it is now lined up with Jon Lester starting on opening day Thursday against the Rangers, followed by Yu Darvish, Hamels, Kyle Hendricks and Jose Quintana.“It’s finally that time. I feel healthy, strong http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authent ... art-jersey ,” Hamels said. “Now it’s go time, get in front of the big crowds and big stadiums and everything starts to matter.”Monday night was Hamels’ fifth spring start. He faced the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox and did serve up Andrew Benintendi’s home run with one out in the third, but led off the Cubs half with a homer to tie the game. He has hit two home runs in the regular season, including one last year with Chicago.“I’ve been taking lots of BP,” Hamels said. “I haven’t had to do that in a couple years. We all had fun in the dugout with that. It’s nice to just make solid contact.”Does it feel the same as making an ace?“No. I’d take a hole-in-one,” Hamels said, laughing. “It’s a lot more rare. It took me about 15 years to get that.”He was playing with seven others, including teammates Anthony Rizzo and Lester Yunel Escobar Jersey , so he has plenty of witnesses.“It was nice to go up there and finally hit one on the green on that hole,” Hamels said. “Normally, I ended up in the bunker. I was happy I got it on the green and then it just disappeared. It was a cool moment.”Who knows what’s in store for Hamels this season?“Rizzo is a little perplexed right now because of what’s been going on,” Hamels said.After Benintendi’s homer, Hamels retired the next eight batters and exited after five innings. Chicago went on to win 3-2.Next up will be the Rangers, who Hamels pitched for from 2015 until last July, when he was traded to the Cubs.“I haven’t had an opportunity to go up against a former team,” Hamels said. “I’m pretty familiar with the ballpark. It’s just making sure I keep the ball in play.”NOTES: Reliever Pedro Strop struck out two in one inning in his first game action since March 9 Martin Maldonado Jersey , when he injured his right hamstring. … Maddon said Monday he has yet to talk to outfielder Ian Happ, who was not happy about being assigned to Triple-A Iowa. “I respect the fact that he’s upset,” Maddon said. “We all believe it’s the best thing for him right now. We think this will make him a better baseball player for years to come.” … Outfielder Mark Zagunis could make the Cubs as an extra outfielder. “It’d be awesome,” Zagunis said. “I get chills thinking about it.” Maddon said Zagunis has shown good at-bats, power and good baserunning. “What I’ve explained to him is, ‘You had the camp that everybody told us you’re capable of,'” Maddon said. Rich Schultz/Getty ImagesContrary to prior reports, the Atlanta Braves reportedly have yet to make a trade offer for Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto.SiriusXM's Craig Mish reported Wednesday that the Braves made Miami a "strong offer" and that the Marlins were "operating as though a trade is likely to happen."In response http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authent ... art-jersey , Fancred's Jon Heyman reported that the Braves "have yet to make any offer" involving Realmuto.The 27-year-old was named an All-Star for the first time last season, as he hit .277 and led the Marlins with 21 home runs and 74 RBI.Realmuto was one of the few remaining core pieces in Miami after it purged the roster last offseason by trading outfielders Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna.PerSpotrac, Realmuto played at a salary of just $2.9 million in 2018, and he is arbitration-eligible for the next two seasons before becoming a free agent in 2021.Atlanta could be an ideal landing spot for Realmuto if the Marlins decide to part ways with him.While backup catcher Tyler Flowers, 32, is under contract for the next two seasons, 2018 starter Kurt Suzuki is a free agent. The 35-year-old hit .271 with 12 home runs and 50 RBI last season Darin Erstad Jersey , and the Braves would likely replace and eclipse that production by trading for Realmuto.One potential issue is the fact that the Marlins and Braves both reside in the NL East, although Miami didn't shy away from keeping both Yelich and Ozuna in the National League last year with trades to the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals, respectively.The Braves went a surprising 90-72 last season to win the NL East, and Realmuto would be a good fit on an Atlanta team that features a strong mix of youngsters such as Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. as well as veterans like Freddie Freeman and Ender Inciarte.
