According to Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker, newly acquired pitcher Cole Hamels is not down in Orlando for Spring Training.

Instead, Hamels is in Dallas. Why? He irritated his pitching shoulder doing weighted-ball exercises and will be re-evaluated in 3 weeks.

The Braves inked Hamels to a one-year deal, $18 million deal in the offseason.

The veteran left-hander will not be ready in time for Opening Day per Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos.
