Cole didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up five runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out six.

The Jays jumped on the right-hander right out of the gate, as George Springer drove Cole's first pitch of the night into the left-center field gap for a double, and all told seven of Toronto's nine hits off him went for extra bases -- including homers by Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette. If this was Cole's last outing of the regular season, he won't take much momentum into a potential playoff run for the Yankees, as he has a 5.13 ERA and 13.8 WHIP in September, albeit with a 43:9 K:BB through 33.1 innings.
