DENVER - The subject matter being studied under the microscope has changed over the years. Seldom have the up-close inspections affected Cole Hamels' on-field performance. Hamels zoomed through the farm system after the Phillies made him a first-round pick in 2002, proved he belonged in the big leagues as soon as he arrived, and was the best pitcher in the postseason when his team won the World Series in 2008. The only double bogey of Hamels' career was the 2009 season, and even Tiger Woods fails to make the cut sometimes.

Ryan Howard dropped his bat, stood at home plate and watched. He watched his grand slam rocket over the right-center-field wall, watched it crash into Citizens Bank Park's visiting bullpen, and watched it trigger a 10-6 win over the Colorado Rockies. The watch was vintage Howard. And his recent run may be enough for Howard to find himself playing for a contender for the final stretch of the season. The grand slam - Howard's 14th of his career - is the first baseman's seventh homer in his last 27 games.

DENVER - Jamie Moyer has agreed to terms on a minor league contract with an invite to the Colorado Rockies' spring training, pending a physical. The 49-year-old lefty didn't play last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow. Moyer has played 24 major league seasons, starting with the Chicago Cubs in 1986. He went 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA for the Phillies in 2010. Moyer, who was 56-40 in 4 1/2 seasons with the Phillies, is 267-204 in his career with a 4.24 career ERA.

In a move to bolster their rotation for the stretch run, the Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired veteran righthander Greg Maddux from the San Diego Padres, the Los Angeles Times reported last night. The newspaper cited an anonymous person close to the deal. It was not known who San Diego would receive in return. The 42-year-old Maddux is 6-9 with a 3.99 ERA this season. He is 353-223 in a 22-year big-league career, having won four consecutive Cy Young Awards from 1992 to 1995.

The free-agent season got underway shortly after midnight on Monday and the hot stove rumor mill is already churning. The Denver Pos t reported yesterday that the Colorado Rockies are expected to offer Carlos Ruiz a multiyear contract before the end of the week. Ruiz, 34, has spent his entire 8-year big-league career with the Phillies. The Phillies declined to offer Ruiz a qualifying offer before Monday's deadline, which would ensure them a first-round pick if Ruiz signed elsewhere.

Maikel Franco glared toward the pitcher's mound Saturday night and for a moment it looked as if emotions were ready to boil over during the hottest game of the season. The dugouts emptied. The bullpens did, too. But the fourth-inning drama ended there in a 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. Franco was upset after being hit by a pitch on the left knee by Rockies pitcher Tyler Anderson, who was immediately ejected by home-plate umpire Eric Cooper. The pitcher tried to explain himself to Franco, who stood near home plate and stared through Anderson as he removed his equipment.

Going from the World Series-champion Boston Red Sox to the lowly Colorado Rockies - and their hitter-friendly ballpark - doesn't bother Blaine Neal. Fact is, Neal, a Bishop Eustace graduate, sounded excited after learning yesterday that the Rockies had claimed him off waivers from the Red Sox. "I'm happy because I'm going to get an opportunity to pitch," said Neal, 27, who was 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in eight appearances with the Red Sox this season. At one point, he went seven days between appearances.

WALT WEISS is the new manager of the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies hired the former major league shortstop late Wednesday night to replace Jim Tracy, who resigned Oct. 7 with 1 year and $1.4 million left on his contract rather than return to a club where its assistant general manager had moved into an office in the clubhouse. The 1988 AL Rookie of the Year with Oakland, Weiss played shortstop for the Rockies from 1994-97 and was a special assistant to general manager Dan O'Dowd from 2002-08.

DENVER - A trip to Coors Field proved once again to be a welcome visit for Ryan Howard. The Phillies first baseman homered in second inning of the game against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night. It was his 10th homer in 34 games at the hitter-friendly ballpark. Howard's homer rate at Coors - one per every 3.4 games - is his fourth-highest rate in active ballparks in which he has played at least 30 games. The homer, which tied the score at 1, was the 369th of Howard's career, tying him with Ralph Kiner and Todd Helton for 78th on baseball's all-time list.

He grew up following the Phillies, but now his job is to help his employers - the Colorado Rockies - knock Philadelphia out of the National League division series. So far, Will George has done his part. George, 48, is a Colorado scout who, many moons ago, was a Pennsauken High pitcher who later was Cal Ripken's roommate on Baltimore's single-A, double-A and triple-A teams. He is a man who has played a major role in the Rockies' development, a man who has filed major-league scouting reports this summer with a heavy heart.

Tommy Joseph was out of the lineup Saturday night against the Mets. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said he would use the second half of the season to determine where the rookie first baseman fits into the system. Since Joseph was called up from Lehigh Valley on May 13, he has batted .255 with a .510 slugging percentage. "He came in like gangbusters," Mackanin said. "Then he went through that bad stretch and he came out of it, little by little. Now it is going to be determined: Is he going to come out of it big or so-so?

DENVER - Tommy Joseph entered July battling the first slump of his major-league career. He had just eight hits in his first 70 at-bats since manager Pete Mackanin named him the starting first baseman. It was quite a funk, Joseph said. But the rookie appears to be showing signs of leaving his funk behind in the first half as the Phillies near the all-star break. He hit a pinch-hit, go-ahead homer in the 5-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night and homered and doubled in his first two at-bats Saturday night.

DENVER - It was simple to pinpoint the moment on Saturday night when Jerad Eickhoff began to unravel. The Phillies pitcher had cruised through the first four innings and looked to be working on another strong outing before the all-star break. And then Eickhoff faced the opposing pitcher with two outs in the fifth. An easy third out turned into a two-run homer. Eickhoff's night - the worst start of his career - started to spiral out of control, and an 8-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies was sealed.

Aaron Nola's all-star break will start a bit early as the Phillies will skip the pitcher's start on Thursday against the Colorado Rockies at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Manager Pete Mackanin said Sunday that the Phillies are skipping Nola so the pitcher can "clear his head" after a rough stretch of starts. He will pitch in a simulated game during the team's four-game trip to Denver. Mackanin did not say who would start for Nola on Thursday. The righthander has a 13.50 ERA in his last five starts and was tagged for five runs in five innings on Saturday.

READING - The two top sluggers in all of minor-league baseball took the field this week for batting practice, and Rhys Hoskins made an observation to Dylan Cozens. "Man, I just feel like a better hitter here," Hoskins said to Cozens. "I don't know what it is. " Cozens and Hoskins - the heart of double-A Reading's potent lineup - each entered Friday with 19 home runs, tied for the minor-league lead. Their 38 combined home runs were the second-most by any two teammates in professional baseball, trailing only the 39 homers from Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies.

San Francisco lefthander Madison Bumgarner was scratched from his Sunday start against San Diego because of tightness in his rib cage and a nerve condition in his left foot. Bumgarner said that both problems were minor but that he didn't want to let them linger. He said he would have pitched had it been a regular-season game. Bumgarner developed neuroma, a nerve condition affecting toes on his left foot, during the offseason and said it was under control following treatment. The 2014 World Series MVP felt something pull in his rib cage in batting practice a few days ago. Yanks' Gardner takes his swings New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner batted nine times Sunday in his first simulated game since bruising his left wrist in last year's AL wild-card loss to Houston.

Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton will start the season on the disabled list because of an injured left knee. Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine said the five-time all-star, bothered by swelling in the knee, received a stem cell and platelet-rich plasma injection Monday, when he was examined by orthopedist James Andrews. Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, will be on crutches for seven to 10 days and is projected to need eight weeks of recovery time. Levine said Hamilton likely would start a minor-league rehabilitation assignment in late April and the Rangers hope he will return to their lineup in early May. Hamilton will be making his 11th trip to the disabled list.
