Hamels placed on 60-day IL before making appearance with Dodgers
Cole Hamels' career in Hollywood is over before it started.
Hamels, who signed with the Dodgers on Aug. 4, was looking to build up arm strength before joining the club.
The 37-year-old was supposed to throw a two-inning simulated game but was pulled after one, according to Juan Toribio of MLB.com.
Hamels has thrown a total of 3 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2020 season. He will be a free agent again this winter.
Los Angeles selected the contract of reliever Neftali Feliz and recalled right-hander Andre Jackson in addition to optioning lefty Darien Nunez and righty Edwin Uceta to Triple-A in corresponding moves.
