Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Stellar in second Nashville start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton compiled nine strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in Triple-A Nashville's win over Sacramento on Sunday, allowing three hits and one walk.

The young right-hander was much sharper in his second appearance for the Sounds after having given up three earned runs on six hits over five frames last Tuesday in his debut. Cotton worked up to 90 pitches Sunday, firing 62 for strikes. He's now 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and .200 BAA over 12.0 innings across his two trips to the mound. If he can demonstrate improvement over a stretch of starts, it would appear highly likely the 25-year-old finds himself back with the big-league club at some point during the season.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Allows three earned runs in first Nashville start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton struck out four while allowing three earned runs on six hits over five innings in his first start for Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The young right-hander will try to figure things out with the Sounds after going 3-4 with a 5.68 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over seven starts. Cotton particularly struggled with his command -- posting a bloated 3.79 BB/9 -- and also saw his strand rate drop from last season's 85 percent to 65.4. He's scheduled to remain at the Triple-A level unless injuries to the Oakland rotation necessitate a quicker return to the big leagues.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

This comes after Cotton was taken deep three times for seven runs during his last start (five innings). The 25-year-old was just 3-4 with a 5.68 ERA and 1.53 WHIP across 38 innings (seven starts) before being sent back to Nashville, where he'll look to straighten things out. The move seemingly clears up a spot in the rotation for Sean Manaea (shoulder), who is expected to return from the disabled list shortly.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Victimized by long ball Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (3-4) gave up seven runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk while striking out seven over five innings in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Angels.

The long balls all came in the first two innings as Albert Pujols, Yunel Escobar and Ben Revere (who had six career homers in 769 games coming into Tuesday) took Cotton deep. The 25-year-old righty now has a solid 35:16 K:BB through 38 innings, but a 1.4 HR/9 and .333 BABIP have left him with a 5.68 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. He'll try to turn things around in his next start Tuesday in Seattle.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Grabs third win with nine-strikeout outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (3-3) allowed three runs -- two earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out nine batters over six innings during Thursday's win over the Twins.

After plenty of offseason buzz leading into 2017, Cotton hasn't made a significant fantasy impact to start the year. Thursday's outing was his best start since shutting out the Royals through seven innings April 10, and Cotton now sports an underwhelming 4.64 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, 3.98 FIP and 7.6 K/9 for the campaign. He'll look to build on Thursday's strong outing in his upcoming start against the Angels next week.
