Cole (shoulder) agreed to a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays on Monday which includes an invite to spring training, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Whether Cole will be healthy this spring remains to be seen, as he was shut down with a shoulder impingement in mid-August. He's a decent gamble for the Blue Jays, as he posted a 3.81 ERA in 26 innings of relief for Cleveland last season.
Cole (shoulder) refused an outright assignment to the minors Monday and became a free agent.
Cole looked good in 26 innings of relief for Cleveland this season, posting a 3.81 ERA and a 30:8 K:BB. He was shut down for the year with a shoulder impingement in mid-August, however, making his status heading into spring training unclear.
Cole (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Cole was placed on the injured list Aug. 10 with a right shoulder impingement. The move was made to free space on the 40-man roster and will end Cole's season.
Cole was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right shoulder impingement, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Cole last pitched Wednesday when he delivered 2.2 scoreless innings against the Rangers, but it's unclear when he actually sustained the injury. Hunter Wood will rejoin the Indians' bullpen in a corresponding move.
Cole allowed one run in one inning to earn the save against Kansas City on Thursday, giving up two hits and a walk while striking out one.
Having already burned through six relievers -- including usual closer Brad Hand -- after 13 innings, manager Terry Francona turned to Cole to protect a two-run lead in the bottom of the 14th. Cole nearly imploded, allowing the first three hitters to reach base before retiring Jorge Soler on a sacrifice fly to record his first out. The 27-year-old then induced another flyball out before whiffing Bubba Starling to end the game and earn his first save since 2015. He's pitched relatively well this season, picking up a pair of wins while posting a 3.63 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB in 22.1 innings out of the bullpen.
Cole was recalled by the Indians on Saturday, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Cole has an unimpressive 5.05 career ERA in 148 major-league innings. He's worked as both a starter and reliever in the past but appears to be up as a reliever this time, as he's pitched exclusively out of the pen for Triple-A Columbus this season, recording a 3.18 ERA in 17 innings. Cody Anderson was optioned in a corresponding move.
Cole was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Cole was designated for assignment in February but still stuck around major-league camp until this point as a non-roster invitee. The 27-year-old allowed five runs (four earned) on 10 hits through eight innings this spring. He will rejoin Triple-A Columbus to begin the season.
Cole cleared waivers Monday and will remain in the Indians' organization.
Cole was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus but will still be in major-league camp as a non-roster invitee. The 27-year-old projected as a potential mid-rotation starter as a prospect but has yet to put things together at the big-league level, recording a 5.05 ERA in 148 innings.
Cole was designated for assignment by Cleveland on Monday.
Cole was removed from the roster to make way for the newly acquired Nick Wittgren, who came over in a trade from Miami. Cole lasted less than a month on the Indians' 40-man roster after being claimed from the Yankees in January and could be on his way to his third team of the offseason should any team be interested in a 27-year-old with a career 5.05 ERA.
Cole was claimed by the Indians on Friday.
Cole was designated for assignment by the Yankees a week ago, and it didn't take long for Cleveland to scoop him up. The 27-year-old right-hander spent the majority of his 2018 season in the big leagues but failed to find much success, posting a 6.14 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with 59 strikeouts over 48.1 innings. He'll aim to earn a spot in the Indians' bullpen during spring training.
Cole was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Friday to make room for new signing Troy Tulowitzki.
Cole's 4.26 ERA in 38.0 innings for the Yankees last season was at least better than the 13.06 mark he posted in 10.1 innings for the Nationals prior to a late-April trade, but he didn't do enough to convince the team to keep him on the roster. His career 5.05 ERA over parts of four seasons won't send teams scrambling to claim him off waivers, but he was formerly at least a moderately interesting prospect, so at least one team may take a chance.
Cole (neck) was activated from the 10-day DL on Tuesday.
As expected, Cole will rejoin the Yankees after appearing in a pair of minor-league rehab outings with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last week. He will slide back into a long-relief role with the Yankees moving forward.
Cole (neck) will be reinstated from the disabled list Tuesday, Marc Carig of The Athletic New York reports.
After making a minor-league start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, Cole will return to the big leagues. Through 11 appearances this season, he's posted an ugly 6.17 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with a 25:12 K:BB over 23.1 innings.
Cole (neck) made a rehab start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday. He retired none of the five batters he faced and was charged with three runs on three hits and two walks.
Cole threw 26 pitches before giving way to the bullpen in what marked his first appearance in a game at any level since June 19. Prior to that, Cole hadn't been used out of the big-league bullpen since May 28, so the Yankees may want to have him make a few appearance in the minors before activating him from the disabled list. The right-hander will likely serve in a long-relief role for the Yankees once he's reinstated.
Cole was put on the 10-day disabled list with a neck strain.
Cole will be eligible to return from the shelf against Boston on June 30. The 26-year-old has appeared in seven games for the Yankees this season, posting a 0.69 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with a 15:6 K:BB across 13 innings of relief. In a corresponding move, the club activated Luis Cessa (oblique) from the disabled list prior to Thursday's contest.
Cole won't open for the Yankees on Monday when the club resumes its May 15 suspended game against the Nationals, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.
Since Cole offered a fresh arm in long relief after having not made an appearance out of the New York bullpen since May 28, there was some thought that he might be summoned into action with the two sides picking things up with the score at 3-3 in the bottom of the sixth inning. It appears the Yankees aren't comfortable turning to Cole late in a tied game, so setup ace Chad Green will instead open for the club.
Cole is the top candidate to take the hill for the Yankees on Monday when they resume their game with the Nationals that was suspended due to rain May 15, Sweeny Murti of Sports Radio 66 WFAN reports.
The game was suspended with the score at 3-3 in the bottom of the sixth inning. Though Cole has gone unused out of the Yankees bullpen since May 28, he has kept his arm conditioned by throwing simulated games and live batting practice. He should be able to cover as many innings as the Yankees need out of him before the two sides make up a May 16 postponed game 30 minutes after the suspended game is completed.
Cole is unlikely to be with the Yankees for long, as he is expected to be designated for assignment in the coming days/weeks, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The Yankees have a roster churn going, with former long man David Hale getting designated for assignment Monday and Cole likely to follow a similar path after serving as a mop-up man in the short term. The Yankees have better internal options if a rotation spot opens, and better internal options for mid-to-high leverage relief pitching, so they're simply using Cole for short-term low-leverage bullpen work. The 26-year-old righty has a 5.32 ERA in 110 MLB innings.
Cole was sent to the Yankees for cash considerations Monday.
Cole was designated for assignment Friday, but will be added to both the Yankees' 40-man and 25-man roster after the trade. The 26-year-old has appeared in four games this season, tossing 10.1 innings and accruing a 13.06 ERA.
Cole was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
In a corresponding move, Washington selected the contract of Carlos Torres from Triple-A Syracuse. Over four appearances with the Nationals this season, Cole allowed 15 earned runs off 16 hits and six walks in 10.1 innings split between the rotation and bullpen. The 26-year-old will be exposed to waivers in the coming days. If unclaimed, he will report to Syracuse and remain organizational depth for Washington.
