Pirates | More on Gerrit Cole's rehab outing

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 17:04:32 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) will make a minor-league rehab start Monday, July 28, with Triple-A Indianapolis. Manager Clint Hurdle said Cole will shoot for 80 to 85 pitches Monday after throwing 60 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, July 25. Cole sounded open to making at least one or two rehab starts before returning to the big club.

Fantasy Tip: It might be two more scoring periods before fantasy owners have Cole back with the big league team. Be patient, but don't expect to activate him until early August.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole to rehab Monday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:32:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) said he will make a rehab start Monday, July 28, for Triple-A Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Cole could be back sometime in early August at that rate. Hopefully his quick and painful return last time taught him to take his time in this recovery. He's a must-start when he comes back, frankly because you're running out of time to use him this year.

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.
