      Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans 12 in win

      Gerrit Cole (15-5) earned the win Thursday after holding the Tigers scoreless while striking out 12 over seven innings. He allowed two hits and one walk.Despite missing more than two weeks with hamstring soreness, the right-hander's velocity hit 99 mph in the first inning and stayed high all night. Cole's strikeout of Jake Rogers in the sixth inning--his 10th of the game--matched a franchise record of 14 games in one season with 10 strikeouts or more. The 28-year-old now owns a ridiculous 2.75 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 238:40 K:BB, and falls just one strikeout behind teammate Justin Verlander. Cole is scheduled to take the hill again on Wednesday against Tampa Bay.

      Astros' Gerrit Cole: Plays catch Friday

      Gerrit Cole (hamstring) played catch Friday for the first time since being scratched from Tuesday's start, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.Cole said he felt no ill effects following the session and is expected to play catch again this weekend in Oakland. That will be followed by an "extensive" bullpen session when Houston returns home. Getting through that pain-free will clear Cole for a return to the rotation during a four-game set against the Tigers which begins Monday. "Right now, our hope is that he's going to be able to pitch at the back end of that Detroit Tigers series," manager A.J. Hinch said. The Houston Astros will need a fifth starter Thursday.

      Astros' Gerrit Cole: On track to return next week

      Manager AJ Hinch said Thursday that he expects Gerrit Cole (hamstring) to slot back into the Houston rotation next week, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.Hinch didn't pinpoint a specific day for Cole's return, but the presumption is that he'll take the hill when his next turn in the rotation comes up Monday in Detroit. That would set Cole up for a two-start week, with his second turn coming next weekend at home versus the Angels. Before the Houston Astros confirm his availability, however, Cole will likely need to complete a bullpen session and/or throw a live batting practice session to prove his sore right hamstring isn't an issue.
