Pirates | Gerrit Cole throws

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 12:29:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) threw on flat ground a few times from approximately 45 or 60 feet Thursday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Cole isn't close to returning. Continue to stash him in all formats. Jeff Locke and Brandon Cumpton will continue to fill out the Pirates rotation in his absence. Locke is worth consideration in all formats, at least in favorable matchups. Cumpton has fleeting NL-only value, unless Cole is out longer than the expected few weeks.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole Update

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:25:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) has no timetable for a return, but he will make a minor league rehab start before rejoining the team, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, a rehab start further delays Cole's return to the Pirates. Continue to stash Cole. In the short term, Brandon Cumpton maintains NL-only value, and he is worthy of spot starting in favorable matchups in mixed leagues.
