Fantasy Tip: Cole ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) remains a must-play in all FantasyScore games due to a 1.73 ERA, among others, and his status as one of the National League's best pitchers.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole dominating on the road

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 06:11:39 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole enters Sunday, June 7, with a 4-1 road record in six starts. Cole will put his 1.86 road ERA and .234 opponent batting average on the road on the line against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Cole ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) is 13th amongst qualified starters with a 10.01 K/9 on the season. Cole is coming off a seven-inning shutout in San Francisco, and he can be considered the day's best pitching option due to the favorable matchup.

Pirates | Gerrit Cole continues dominant stretch

Sat, 23 May 2015 06:39:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole won his sixth game of the season over the New York Mets Friday, May 22. He allowed a single run on six hits and a walk with 10 strikeouts over 8 1/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Tip: Cole ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) is pitching his way into the elite tier of starters, as he currently sits with a 2.05 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 9.9 K/9. His 2.27 FIP doesn't suggest there is correction looming, either. There may be cause for a brief pause against a high-end offense, but at this point, it appears Cole can be started regardless of his opposition.

Tue, 05 May 2015 21:49:15 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Cole is 8-0 with a 2.40 ERA over his past 10 starts dating back to last season. He is fairly expensive at $8,700 (or 17.4% of cap) in FantasyScore, but he has been extremely consistent and is worth the money.

He now has 286 innings at the majors, and the arrow is pointing straight up for the 24-year-old righty and 2011 first overall selection. FantasyScore players will want to consider Cole whenever he takes the hill, and especially in favorable matchups.
