Cole Hamels' season is officially over.
The Atlanta Braves left-handed gunner told the team he had no strength in his left shoulder and couldn't take the mound. His next start was scheduled for Tuesday against the Marlins.
Whoever signed a one-year contract for $ 18 million, will only get one start with the Georgia team. He pitched three innings and a third against the Baltimore Orioles, conceding three earned runs.
It's a season to forget for the 36-year-old southpaw. From the start of training camp in July, he suffered from tendonitis in that same shoulder and had been sidelined for the first eight weeks of a ten-season season.
The Braves immediately asked major league baseball to remove its name from the list of 40 players who could make playoff games.
