    • Cole (3-5) threw 5.2 innings of one-run ball to earn the win Monday against the Phillies, allowing six hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Cole worked out of a couple of jams in this one and was only scored upon via a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth. He labored a bit and was removed with 101 pitches under his belt, just one out shy of a quality start. Cole still earned the win and has now allowed three earned runs or fewer in five of his last six starts. He will take an improving 4.10 ERA into his final start of the regular season Saturday against the Pirates.

    • Nationals' A.J. Cole: Takes loss against Dodgers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole (2-5) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Saturday. This wasn't a disaster, but it wasn't an encouraging performance either, as Cole served up a home run and also hit two batters. With a 4.43 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 37:23 K:BB over 42.2 innings this year, Cole doesn't have much of a case for future starts, but the Nationals could always give him another opportunity or two down the stretch as they look to get their frontline starters well rested ahead of the NLDS.

    • Nationals' A.J. Cole: Could start Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole is listed as the Nationals' probable starter for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. It looks like Cole may get a spot start over the weekend as manager Dusty Baker looks to steal some extra rest for his rotation down the stretch. Cole held his own as a fill-in starter earlier in the season, compiling a 4.01 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in six starts for the Nats before being shifted to the bullpen. He isn't expected to stick in the rotation following Saturday's spot start.

    • Nationals' A.J. Cole: Grabs second win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole (2-4) allowed two runs -- just one earned -- on five hits and four walks while striking out five batters through 5.2 innings during Monday's win over Miami. The 25-year-old righty spun a gem last time out against the Mets, so this was a solid follow-up. Cole now sports a 4.01 ERA and 8.3 K/9 for the year, but if the Washington rotation is healthy, he's unlikely to start consistently over the final weeks. However, because of his recent form, Cole is a serviceable option in most fantasy settings if he receives another spot start.

    • Cole was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse and confirmed as the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. As expected, Cole will rejoin the Nationals' rotation to make his sixth start of the season for the big club. The 25-year-old held his own in his previous two spot starts, allowing four runs across 12 innings (3.00 ERA) while striking out 14 batters. Erick Fedde (forearm) was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move.
