7/28/15 (9:22 AM): The San Francisco Giants have made a big push for Cole Hamels, according to Ken Rosenthal.

According to Todd Zolecki, the Rangers and Dodgers are still in the lead for Hamels, but the Giants are indeed moving their way up the list.

UPDATE (7/28/15, 2:34 PM):

ESPN’s Jayson stark reported that the Phillies are telling teams that they want their “best offers” for Cole Hamels in by Wednesday.

“The Phillies have continued to speak with a large number of teams — a group known to include the Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks,New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox — about Hamels.

However, sources said that in the case of about half of that group, the Phillies initiated those talks in an attempt to reopen discussion about players whom those clubs had said previously they’d be unwilling to trade.”

Ken Rosenthal confirms that the Astros are “in the ballpark” for Hamels, while the Rangers are still the strongest suitor at the moment.
