Pirates | Gerrit Cole throws Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:33:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) threw 35 pitches during a bullpen session Tuesday, June 28, and did not report any pain. He was able to throw all of his pitches during the session. Cole said he does not know what his next step will be.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Cole is making steady progress in his recovery, but he probably will not be back until after the All-Star break. Owners should keep Cole on their bench until he is able to return.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole rehabbing

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:01:52 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) delivered pitches to a bullpen catcher in the outfield Monday, June 27, and the Pirates and pitching coach Ray Searage are trying a new approach to rehab for their pitchers that involves more pitching and less throwing. "I feel like it's paying off in the bullpens because I'm repeating my delivery way better than I have in a while," Cole said. The idea is to help pitchers maintain their mechanics as they work back from injuries.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, don't expect Cole back before the All-Star break. He hasn't been great in 2016 but he's been solid for fantasy owners with a 2.77 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 7.2 K/9. Keep him stashed in all fantasy formats for now and stay tuned for an update on when he'll begin a rehab assignment.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole throws off mound

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 23:36:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) threw 15 fastballs off a mound for the first time Sunday, June 26. He will throw a few more bullpen sessions on the upcoming road trip before the team lays out a rehab assignment schedule.

Fantasy Tip: Cole is likely to return sometime after the All-Star break. The team doesn't have a fifth starter right now, which could open a place for top prospect Tyler Glasnow for a spot start. He's worth speculating on in deeper leagues. Keep Cole stashed on the bench.

Red Sox | Boston inquires about big-name starters

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:02:55 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have reached out to the Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins regarding the availability of SPs Gerrit Cole and Jose Fernandez, respectively, according to multiple baseball sources.

Fantasy Tip: No deal appears imminent for either hurler and it's likely that the Red Sox were just doing their due diligence to see what it would take to land a big-name starter. At the very least, a potential deal would likely involve SS Xander Bogaerts and/or OF Mookie Betts. When healthy, both Fernandez and Cole should be viewed as fantasy aces in seasonal leagues and must-start options in daily contests.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole won't be activated Sunday

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 18:17:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) will not return from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 26, on the first day he is eligible to be activated. He has been playing catch recently but hasn't resumed throwing off a mound.

Fantasy Tip: Cole should be viewed as a fantasy ace when healthy and deserves to remain stashed in all formats. The 25-year-old right-hander is 5-4 with a 2.77 ERA through 12 starts this year, with 20 walks and 55 strikeouts over 68 1/3 innings.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole plays catch

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 09:16:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) played catch Sunday, June 19, and Monday, June 20, but there's no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: The original timetable was at most two starts, which means he could be back sometime next week. Cole is an SP1 when he's right, and he's a daily consideration when he returns.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole put on DL

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:59:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Cole's triceps injury isn't believed to be too serious, so the Pirates are expecting him to miss only two starts while he's on the 15-day DL. Cole is a top-tier fantasy starter and should remain stashed in all leagues. Jameson Taillon is coming up Tuesday to make his second career start. Taillon is a top pitching prospect that is likely already owned in the majority of leagues. He could stick around longer this time.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole may miss two starts

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 05:48:42 -0700

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) will miss his next start, but the triceps tightness isn't expected to keep him out more than two turns whether he lands on the disabled list or not.

Fantasy Tip: Cole hasn't been himself this year, despite sporting a 2.77 ERA. His walks up are, and he's allowing more than a hit per inning, which has led to a career-worst 1.32 WHIP. His K-rate is down from 8.74 to 7.24 per nine innings. Cole has the stuff of an SP1, but he's not there yet. That being said, if you can acquire him at a reduced rate, do so.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole to undergo MRI exam

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:23:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) will undergo an MRI exam on his triceps Saturday, June 11. The injury is not believed to be season-ending, although he is expected to miss some time.

Fantasy Tip: The amount of time Cole will miss remains unknown but a timetable for his return should be available after the results have been revealed. At the very least, expect him to miss his next scheduled start versus the New York Mets Thursday, June 16. The 25-year-old right-hander is 5-4 with a 2.77 ERA in 12 starts this year and should remain stashed in all fantasy formats.
