    • Cole (5-6) gave up an earned run on six hits and a walk over six innings in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Phillies. He struck out seven. He looked considerably better than in his first start off the DL last Saturday versus the Nationals, notching first-pitch strikes on 18 of the 26 hitters he faced and inducing 14 swinging strikes overall. Cole also stayed away from the long ball once again, marking his sixth consecutive appearance without surrendering a round-tripper. The 25-year-old will look for some run support, and his first victory since May 20, when he takes on the Brewers on Friday.

    • Cole (triceps) reported no new problems following Saturday's start against the Nationals, GM Neal Huntington said Sunday. Speaking on his weekly radio show, Huntington said Cole looked rusty and was missing his spots. The Pittsburgh starter did flash glimpses of dominance, striking out four straight batters (including Bryce Harper). After a five-week layoff, look for Cole to pitch better in his next outing.

    • Cole (5-5) disappointed in his return to the mound Saturday, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits in a loss against the Nationals. He also struck out five and walked two. This was Cole's first start since June 10, but it wasn't nearly as successful as he would have liked. Washington had a runner in scoring position with one out in each of the first two innings. Both runners scored. Then in the fourth, an infield hit plus error helped lead to three more runs. Owners shouldn't be too concerned, though, because Cole is a guy that takes an outing or two to settle in. He is 5-5 with a 3.11 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 60 strikeouts in 72.1 innings this season. His next start will be Friday against the Phillies.
