Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole allowed one earned run, three hits and no walks with six strikeouts in a complete game win against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, July 27. He evened up his record at 6-6 while lowering his ERA to 2.78.

Fantasy Tip: Cole hasn't always looked like an ace this season, but this type of performance is why you do not pull the plug on Cole or trade him while his value is at its nadir. He is a fantasy stud.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole pitches well in loss Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:56:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (5-6) allowed one run on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, July 22, with one walk and seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Cole was making just his second start since coming off the disabled list earlier this month and was victimized once again by poor run support. He has a very favorable matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers in his next outing Friday, July 29, and is a must-start option in all fantasy formats.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole knocked around in D.C.

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 21:01:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) allowed five runs - four earned - and seven hits with two walks and five strikeouts over four innings in a loss against the Washington Nationals Saturday, July 16. His record slipped to 5-5.

Fantasy Tip: Cole made it through the outing without any setbacks, so that's the best news of all. However, he hasn't won in five starts dating back to May 20. While this start was poor, he hasn't pitched poorly and just hasn't had much in the way of run support. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues despite his winless drought.

Nationals | Ben Revere returns to lineup

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:38:58 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere is in the lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates RH Gerrit Cole on Saturday, July 16, and will lead off. Rookie 2B Trea Turner will head to the bench after starting the last two games in favor of 2B/SS/3B Stephen Drew, who will play second base and hit seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Revere is 7-for-12 against Cole, so perhaps he is a sneaky DFS option given his speed (10 steals), but he doesn't bring much else to the table. Drew has shown a bit of pop so far (seven homers in 91 at-bats), but he can be avoided outside of NL-only formats.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole back, Josh Bell sent down

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 16. 1B Josh Bell was sent down to Class AAA Indianapolis to make room.

Fantasy Tip: Cole should be placed into traditional lineups immediately. However, he's not a strong start against the Washington Nationals in DFS today. Bell should be stashed in NL-only leagues if possible as he should be back in September.

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 05:45:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) will come off the 15-day disabled list and start Saturday, July 16, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough matchup to use him the first time out in DFS, but Cole should definitely return to most traditional lineups upon activation.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole to rehab Sunday

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 14:33:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) will make a five-inning start with Class AAA Indianapolis Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cole should be able to return shortly after the All-Star break and should be returned to all starting lineups at that juncture. He can put up fantasy ace numbers for stretches and had a 2.77 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 7.2 strikeouts per nine innings before his injury. His return could push prospect Tyler Glasnow back to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Cole could be in line to be activated from the disabled list shortly after the All-Star break. When healthy, he should be viewed as a high-end pitching option in all fantasy formats.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (triceps) is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class AAA Indianapolis Tuesday, July 5.
