Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans 11 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (10-5) earned the win Wednesday after recording 11 strikeouts and limiting the Angels to one run on seven hits and a walk over seven innings.

Cole delivered yet another dominant performance, this time blanking the Angels until the fifth inning, when he allowed a solo home run to Dustin Garneau. Otherwise, the 28-year-old scattered six singles while whiffing 11 batters. Cole is now 6-0 in his last 10 starts and owns a 3.12 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 194:33 K:BB on the season. The right-hander will look to extend his winning streak during a showdown Monday with Oakland.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans 13 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole struck out 13 but didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-8 loss to the Rangers, giving up four runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over six innings.

The ball was flying at Globe Life Park, as the two teams combined for nine homers, but Cole was able to minimize the damage on his long balls while fanning double-digit batters for the 10th time this season. Unfortunately, the Houston bullpen cost him his 10th win. The right-hander will take a 3.23 ERA and 183:32 K:BB through 122.2 innings into his next start Wednesday, on the road against the Angels.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Dominant once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (9-5) won his fourth straight start, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven scoreless innings in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

Cole allowed a first-inning double and a couple of harmless singles the rest of the way. It was another dominating performance for Cole, who hasn't tasted defeat over nine straight outings, a stretch during which the right-hander's posted a 1.55 ERA while winning six times. Manager AJ Hinch has not yet made official the starting rotation coming out of the break, but fantasy players should expect Cole in one of the first two games, Thursday or Friday, at Texas.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans 10 for eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (8-5) picked up the victory after allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out 10 over seven innings Sunday against the Mariners.

Cole gave up his only run of the day in the first inning on a solo homer to right center, but he managed to follow that up with six scoreless frames. The 28-year-old right-hander has now turned in seven consecutive quality starts, improving his ERA from 4.11 to 3.28 over that stretch. He also owns a fantastic 161:28 K:BB over 109.2 innings this season.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Earns seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (7-5) allowed one earned run on seven hits and two walks while striking out three across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

Cole ran into little trouble until the sixth inning, when he allowed three consecutive batters to reach base with two outs prior to inducing a groundout to strand the bases loaded. Though still effective, Cole generated only three strikeouts, his lowest total of the season. He'll bring a strong 3.42 ERA and superb 1.05 WHIP into his next start, currently scheduled for Sunday against Seattle.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole recorded eight strikeouts and allowed six hits and three walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Reds on Wednesday.

For the fifth straight start, Cole allowed two earned runs or fewer, but for the third time during that stretch, he settled for a no-decision. In this outing, closer Roberto Osuna gave up the lead in the ninth. Cole is an underwhelming 6-5 with a 3.54 ERA, but his other numbers are sparkling. He has a 1.02 WHIP, .206 batting average against and 148 strikeouts in 96.2 innings this season. Cole will face the team that drafted him, the Pirates, in his next start at home Tuesday.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Breezes to sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (6-5) struck out 10 and picked up the win in Friday's 15-2 rout of the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over six innings.

The offense put this one away early, scoring at least two runs in each of the first four innings, but Cole never gave Toronto a chance to mount any kind of comeback. The right-hander has reeled off four straight quality starts, fanning double-digit batters in three of them, and he'll take a 3.67 ERA and stunning 140:22 K:BB through 90.2 innings into his next outing Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans 14 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits and struck out 14 over seven innings Friday in a no-decision against the Orioles.

Baltimore got to Cole for two runs in the first inning and another in the third, but he would finish his night with four straight scoreless frames. He fired 80 of 113 pitches for strikes and punched out a season-high 14 batters, though he wouldn't come away with the victory. Despite this, the 28-year-old owns a 3.72 ERA with an eye-popping 130:20 K:BB over 84.2 innings this season.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fights through six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole allowed two runs on four hits and two walks across six innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Athletics. He struck out four.

Cole allowed a pair of solo home runs in the second inning, but he was rarely under duress during the rest of the outing as he secured his second straight quality start. He was a bit inefficient and failed to pitch more than six innings for the fifth consecutive appearance. Cole's ERA is an uncharacteristically high 3.94 this season, but he'll draw a favorable matchup in his next scheduled start, which lines up at home against the Orioles.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Ties season high with 12 K's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (5-5) picked up the win in Monday's 6-5 victory over the Cubs, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out 12.

The 12 K's tied his season high, and after Anthony Rizzo took him deep in the first inning, Cole put the Cubs' offense on lockdown. The right-hander has reached double-digit whiffs in half of his 12 starts this season, and he'll take a 4.02 ERA and eye-popping 112:18 K:BB through 71.2 innings into his next outing Sunday in Oakland.

May 23, 2019 04:16 PM
Astros' Gerrit Cole: Gives up six runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (4-5) gave up six runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven through five innings, taking the loss to the White Sox on Wednesday.

Cole gave up two solo home runs early and ran into trouble in the top of the sixth inning, allowing two runs and two baserunners before being removed without recording an out. Josh James went on to surrender a grand slam to Charlie TIlson, allowing both of the runs to score. Despite the rough outing, the 13 swinging strikes and limited free passes suggest he will bounce back. The right-hander has a 4-5 record with a 4.11 ERA and 100:17 K:BB through 11 starts this season. Cole will make his next start Monday against the Cubs.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Pitches five shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole allowed no runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk across five innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

Unfortunately, the Astros didn't support Cole with any runs, and he couldn't pitch past the fifth because he had already thrown 99 pitches. This breaks a streak of three straight wins for Cole, but clearly, he's firmly back on track after yielding nine runs against the Rangers on April 20. In the last five starts since then, Cole owns a 2.01 ERA. Overall, he is 4-4 with a 3.56 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in 60.2 innings this season. He will look for his fifth win during his next start against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Strikes out season-high 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (4-4) picked up the win in Saturday's 11-4 rout of the Rangers, allowing one run on four hits over six innings while striking out a season-high 12.

A Hunter Pence solo shot in the second inning was the only blemish on Cole's line for the night. The right-hander has now fanned double-digit batters five times in nine starts to lead the majors in strikeouts, and he'll take a 3.88 ERA and 86:15 K:BB through 55.2 innings into his next outing Friday in Boston.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans nine in win over Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (3-4) picked up the win Monday, allowing four runs on seven hits over 6.1 innings while striking out nine as the Astros downed the Royals, 6-4.

A pair of two-run homers accounted for all the damage off Cole, the second time in the last three starts he's served up multiple long balls. The right-hander remains one of baseball's premier strikeout artists, fanning at least eight batters in seven of his eight trips to the mound this year, and he'll take a 4.17 ERA and 74:15 K:BB through 49.2 innings into his next start Saturday, at home against the Rangers.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Strikes out 11 in seven scoreless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (2-4) threw seven shutout innings, allowing just one hit with three walks while striking out 11 in an 11-0 victory against the Twins on Tuesday.

Astros hitting has not given Cole a whole lot of support this season. They certainly did Tuesday, but the right-hander didn't need it. Cole was absolutely dominant, turning in his best outing of the young season. The one hit he allowed set a new season low, and his 11 strikeouts tied a season high. Cole is just 2-4 with a 3.95 ERA, but he's been excellent in the other major categories -- 1.04 WHIP, .190 batting average against and 65 strikeouts in 43.1 innings. His next outing is scheduled for Monday at home against the Royals.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Swallows tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (1-4) took the loss after surrendering two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out 10 over seven innings Thursday against the Indians.

Cole fell victim to the home-run ball, as he gave up a pair of solo blasts on the way to a 2-1 loss. The 28-year-old certainly pitched well enough to win, though Trevor Bauer simply outdueled the right-hander. While Cole was saddled with the loss, it was good to see him respond from a horrific outing Saturday against the Rangers, when he allowed nine runs (eight earned) over 4.1 innings. Cole will carry a 4.71 ERA with 54 punchouts over 36.1 frames heading into his next outing Tuesday against the Twins.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Confident in mechanics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole, who is starting Thursday against the Indians, is confident he's cleaned up his mechanical indicators that led to the worst start of his career last week, David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Rangers teed off on Cole starting with a five-run first inning and chased him after 4.1 innings and nine runs allowed. Cole felt he was tipping his pitches and worked to clean up his mechanics between starts. "I obviously didn't ask (the Rangers) if they knew what was coming, but I had kind of a gut feeling, and some of the guys on our team kind of identified what they could potentially be seeing," he said. "I had changed my set position a little bit from last year and actually anticipated maybe a little bit of a an adjustment period, and unfortunately it all came crashing down in one game." While the start against Texas was a bad one, Cole was able to rebound somewhat over the latter half of the outing.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Tipping pitches?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole believes he may have been tipping his pitches during the first inning of Saturday's 9-4 loss to Texas, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Cole allowed five first-inning runs on the way to his shortest outing (4.1 IP) since joining the Astros prior to the 2018 season. "I think they were maybe a little bit of a step ahead of me in terms of maybe being able to identify what pitch I was throwing," said Cole. "I made some adjustments throughout the game and that seemed to clean that up, and by the time I got to the fifth, I was dog tired and started to spray again." While watching video after the game, Cole said he could tell what pitches he was going to throw and assumes the Rangers knew it as well. The right-hander will attempt to clean it up before his next start Thursday at home against the Indians.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Yields nine runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (1-3) allowed nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits with eight strikeouts and three walks across 4.1 innings in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

While the eight strikeouts were nice, Cole struggled in just about every other aspect during this start. He gave up five runs (four earned) in the first inning, but seemed to settle down in the second inning before giving up a solo homer in the third. The Rangers started another multi-run rally in the fifth, forcing Cole out of the game. Up until Saturday, Cole had strong numbers, but it just wasn't translating into wins. After this fiasco of a start, he is 1-3 with a 5.22 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. The good news is he also has 44 strikeouts in 29.1 innings. Cole's next start is scheduled to be at home against the Indians on Thursday.

Astros' Gerrit Cole: Good work finally pays off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (1-2) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out 11 over six innings in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Cole finally had his good pitching pay off in a win after his first three outings, all quality starts, left him 0-2. Entering Sunday's game, Cole received just four runs of support over 25 innings. Outside of a couple of mistakes, Cole was in complete command and induced 19 swinging strikes. He's next scheduled to pitch Friday on the road against the Rangers.
