Pirates' Gerrit Cole: Unrewarded for 10-whiff outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole struck out 10 over seven innings of one-run ball against Milwaukee on Wednesday, only to settle for a no-decision. He gave up six hits and didn't walk anyone.

This marks Cole's first double-digit-whiff outing of the year, and he's pulling his numbers back in a positive direction after a handful of rough outings derailed his 2017 to some degree. The talented righty's ERA is still rather high at 4.18, but if you take out the four-start stretch in late May and early June that saw him give up 23 runs in 19.1 innings, Cole has otherwise given up 33 earned runs in 101.1 frames -- a 2.93 ERA. Look for the 26-year-old to carry forward his strong start to the season's second half; fortunately, his turn in the rotation won't come up in this weekend's series at Coors Field. Instead, he'll next start Monday at San Francisco.

Pirates' Gerrit Cole: Fires quality start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (7-7) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out four across six innings but received a no-decision Friday against the Cardinals.

Cole gave up a two-run homer in the first inning, but settled down nicely after that as he posted a quality start. He's turned around his season lately while holding opponents to two or fewer earned runs in five of his last six outings to lower his ERA from 4.83 to 4.35, and he's re-emerged as a player who can be safely trusted in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Brewers.

Pirates' Gerrit Cole: Evens record with win over Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (7-7) struck out eight while holding the Phillies to two runs on seven hits and a walk in Wednesday's 5-2 win.

He's now won four of his last five starts, but Cole gave up seven runs in the other one -- a stretch that's fairly emblematic of his 2017 to this point. Cole may be one of the highest-upside pitchers around, but he's taken a turn for the inconsistent since going 19-8 with a 2.60 ERA and 1.09 WHIP back in 2015. Still, he's gotten unlucky in terms of HR/FB rate this year (it's a career-high 17.9 percent), and some positive regression on that front will help his stats normalize. Cole will probably start the Pirates' first game after the All-Star break, July 14 against the Cardinals.

Pirates' Gerrit Cole: Blasted for seven runs Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (6-7) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Giants.

Cole entered the fourth inning with a 3-2 lead, but he was then lit up for five more runs before being forced from the contest. He came into the game having allowed just one run in each of his last three starts, but he's also allowed seven runs in three of his last six outings, and his ERA sits at 4.51. His massive swings of inconsistency have been maddening to fantasy owners, making him a risk/reward lineup option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Phillies.

Pirates' Gerrit Cole: Collects sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (6-6) allowed a single run on five hits and two walks while striking out five batters through six innings during Saturday's win over St. Louis.

Outside of a disastrous four-game stretch where Cole allowed 23 runs through 19 innings, the 26-year-old righty has been outstanding. After all, to sport a 4.11 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with that disastrous span on the books highlights how strong the rest of Cole's body of work has been. Additionally, he's now surrendered just three runs through 20 innings over his past three starts. Cole lines up for a cushy matchup at home against the reeling Giants in his next start.
