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.

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.
