Nationals' A.J. Cole: Not starting Monday's game
Cole won't start Monday's game against the Mets, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Cole's next turn in the rotation would have been scheduled for Monday, but the Nationals will instead appoint Jeremy Hellickson to fill the fifth-starter role. With Hellickson ready to take on a starter's workload following a delayed start to spring training, Cole, who doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, appears likely to work out of the Washington bullpen for the time being. The 26-year-old right-hander gave up 12 earned runs on 13 hits and five walks over nine frames in his two starts this season.
