Pirates | Gerrit Cole's struggles continue

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 05:00:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole has lost three straight starts on the road after winning the previous three, and he is 0-2 with a 3.80 ERA against the St. Louis Cardinals in four starts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Cole ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) is still a strong play in FantasyScore. He is working through a slump, and his struggles against the Cardinals are dragging down his month of August. He should snap out of his funk now that St. Louis is in the rear-view mirror for the time being.

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 12:08:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole is throwing his slider a career-high 21.7% of the time this season, and opponents are batting just .138 against the pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Cole ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) is having a breakout season with 14 wins, a 2.29 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP and a 9.0 K/9. He faces the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday Aug. 7, and Clayton Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) is starting opposite Cole. It might not be the best night to utilize the Pittsburgh ace at FantasyScore.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole suffers the loss vs. Royals

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 20:39:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole allowed three runs -- two earned -- on five hits while striking out six batters through 7 1/3 innings during the Pirates' 3-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 21. It was just the fourth loss of the season for Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Cole ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) threw six scoreless frames before the Royals finally got to him, and he likely can be classified as a tough-luck loser due to the lack of run support his offense provided. Cole has emerged as an ace-caliber fantasy arm, and he can be started with confidence in FantasyScore contests in the majority of matchups.
