Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Takes loss against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (10-5) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Red Sox after allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while fanning eight across five innings.

Cole gave up a two-run shot to Rafael Devers and gave up his three runs during the bottom of the fifth. The star hurler was coming off back-to-back quality starts and had allowed just one earned run over his last 15 innings, but he was unable to repeat that kind of performance in this one and failed to pitch more than five frames for the third time over his last five starts.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Earns win in rain-marred game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (10-4) took the win Saturday against Boston, tossing six innings and allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out 11.

The Yankees' ace gave up a second-inning run but was otherwise dominant against the division-rival Red Sox. He threw 96 pitches across six frames before the game was called due to heavy rain. Despite the shortened affair, Cole notched double-digit strikeouts for seventh time this season. Over his past two starts, he has struck out 23 across 15 frames while allowing only one run and eight hits. His next start is scheduled to be a rematch versus Boston, this time on the road, late next week.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Shuts out Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (9-4) pitched a shutout, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out 12 in nine innings in Saturday's 1-0 win over Houston.

The right-hander put an exclamation point on the end of the first half of the season, as all three hits he allowed were singles. Cole had notably struggled in his last six starts amid MLB's crackdown on sticky substances, but he was in his finest form Saturday, and he retired Yordan Alvarez on a 99 mph fastball to complete the shutout. The stellar outing lowered Cole's ERA to 2.68 with a 0.93 WHIP and 147:22 K:BB across 114 innings. He'll likely take the mound some point in next weekend's four-game series versus Boston coming out of the All-Star break.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Yanked in fourth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole yielded four runs on six hits and three walks over 3.1 innings in a loss to the Mets in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

Cole was taken deep by Dominic Smith for a solo shot in the first inning but held the Mets to just a run through the first three frames. In the fourth, he allowed five of the first six batters to reach base before he was removed from the game with 80 pitches. It was the first time this season he didn't complete at least five innings. Over his last six starts, Cole has given up 21 runs (20 earned) over 34.1 innings, bumping his season ERA to 2.91. He's projected to take the mound in Houston next week.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Unusually poor in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (8-4) took the loss versus Boston on Sunday. He gave up six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings.

Cole was done in by the long ball Sunday -- Boston tagged him for three home runs in the contest. The right-hander has now allowed nine homers in his last five starts, as the talk continues of how being monitored more closely for tacky substances could potentially be affecting Cole's spin rate and ultimately his effectiveness. Sunday was also the third time he's given up five earned runs, all since May 17. The Yankees' ace has a 2.66 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 129:17 K:BB across 101.2 innings. He'll look to get back on track at home next weekend in the Subway Series versus the Mets.

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

Cole took a no-decision during Tuesday's loss to the Royals after allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out six across seven innings.

Despite a solid outing, the Yankees bullpen failed hold up and get Cole the win. While the 30-year-old pitched into at least the seventh inning for the seventh time this year, he did issue an uncharacteristically high three free passes. Regardless, his 122 strikeouts through his first 15 starts are the most by any Yankees pitcher in his first 15 starts of the season. Cole will carry a 2.33 ERA and 0.85 WHIP into his next projected outing Sunday at Boston.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Racks up eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (8-3) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over eight innings in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays. He struck out four.

The four whiffs tied a season low for Cole, and the right-hander was in line for the loss after serving up two solo homers earlier in the night until Gary Sanchez launched a two-run shot in the seventh to put the Yankees ahead. Cole has a remarkable 11 quality starts in 14 trips to the mound this year but he hasn't recorded double-digit strikeouts since May 12, posting a 3.65 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 39:9 K:BB through 37 innings over his last six outings.

June 10, 2021 09:56 AM
Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Fans nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (7-3) allowed two earned runs on five hits while striking out nine across six innings, earning the win over the Twins on Wednesday.

Cole's two runs allowed came on a pair of solo home runs, one by Jorge Polanco in the third inning and the other by Miguel Sano in the fifth inning. After walking eight batters in his last four starts, Cole was back to his normal self, not walking anyone Wednesday. His nine strikeouts were also the most he recorded in a start since May 12 against the Rays. The 30-year-old has a 2.31 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP in 81.2 innings. He has the third-highest K/9 rate in the American League with a 12.5 K/9.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Gives up five runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (6-3) allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in five innings to take the loss against the Rays on Thursday.

Cole has been somewhat inconsistent recently, and he's now allowed at least five runs in two of his last four outings. However, the right-hander has posted quality starts in nine of his 12 starts to begin the year and has still earned six wins during that time. Cole has now posted a 2.26 ERA and 104:11 K:BB in 75.2 innings this season. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against the Twins on Tuesday.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Posts quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole allowed one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out five across six innings in the loss to the Tigers on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.

The only run charged against Cole came in the third inning on a Jeimer Candelario single that scored Robbie Grossman. Cole has posted a quality start in nine of his 11 starts. His only bad start came against the Rangers in mid May, when he gave up five runs in five innings. Despite having just five punchouts Friday, Cole is fourth in all of baseball with a 12.4 K/9. In addition, he leads the American League with a 1.78 ERA and a 10.78 K/BB through 70.2 innings this season.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Fires seven scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (6-2) earned the win Saturday against the White Sox after giving up four hits with seven strikeouts and three walks over seven shutout innings.

The 30-year-old didn't have his best command as he issued three walks after walking only five batters through his first nine starts of the season, but he still kept Chicago off the board. Cole has a 1.81 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 92:7 K:BB across 64.2 innings this season.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Sets MLB record in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (5-2) took the loss Monday, giving up five runs on seven hits and two walks over five-plus innings as the Yankees were downed 5-2 by the Rangers. He struck out seven.

The right-hander was uncharacteristically hittable, as Monday's outing was the first time all season Cole gave up more base knocks than innings pitched. The walks were also his first in over a month, and in between he set a new major-league record by striking out 61 batters without issuing a free pass -- breaking the mark of 58 set by Corbin Burnes just last week. Cole will take a 2.03 ERA and absurd 85:5 K:BB through 57.2 innings into his next outing.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Dominates with eight shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (5-1) pitched eight shutout innings while allowing four hits and striking out 12 as he picked up a win over the Rays on Wednesday.

It was a historic day for Cole as Wednesday was his fifth start this season of at least 10 strikeouts and no walks, which broke Mike Mussina's single-season team record from 2001. He also notched his 1,500th career strikeout in the third inning and became the fourth fastest pitcher in MLB history to reach that milestone. The 30-year-old last walked a batter April 12 and has struck out 56 since then, which ties Curt Schilling for the longest such streak in a season since at least 1961. The right-hander has the third-best ERA among qualified pitchers at 1.37, the second-best WHIP at 0.68, and trails only Shane Beiber with 78 strikeouts over 52.2 innings. He'll look to continue his dominant form in a favorable matchup against the Rangers at the beginning of next week.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out four across seven innings Thursday against the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.

Cole allowed two solo home runs -- both to Yordan Alvarez -- but otherwise held Houston without an extra-base hit. It was something of a down performance in the sense that Cole only managed four strikeouts, but the rest of his line was still typically strong. For the season, Cole has a 1.61 ERA with a sensational 66:3 K:BB across 44.2 innings. He currently lines up to draw his next start Wednesday at Tampa Bay.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Sharp against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (4-1) allowed four hits and no walks while striking out 12 in six scoreless innings to earn the win against the Tigers on Friday.

Cole racked up double-digit strikeouts for the fourth time this season. The right-hander only pitched 5.1 innings in his Opening Day start, but he's lasted at least six innings in each of his last five outings. Cole now carries a 1.43 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 62:3 K:BB in 37.2 innings this season. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Astros on Thursday.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Comes out on top in pitchers' duel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (3-1) picked up the win in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Cleveland, allowing one run on three hits over seven innings. He struck out 11 without walking a batter.

Matched up against Shane Bieber in a battle of AL Cy Young Award favorites, Cole put up the better performance, firing 75 of 111 pitches for strikes and fanning double-digit batters for the third time in five starts this season. He'll take a 1.71 ERA and incredible 50:3 K:BB through 31.2 innings into his next outing Friday at home against the Tigers.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Strikes out 10 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (2-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 in 6.1 innings to take the loss against the Rays on Sunday.

Cole had earned wins in each of his last two starts, but he was charged with his first loss of the year by giving up a season-high three runs against Tampa Bay. The right-hander has been quite sharp early in his second season with the Yankees and has posted a 1.82 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 39:3 K:BB in 24.2 innings across four starts. Cole will attempt to return to the win column on the road against Cleveland on Friday.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Fans eight in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (2-0) picked up the win in Monday's 3-1 victory over the Blue Jays, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out eight.

The Jays strung together a couple hits in the first inning to squeeze across a run, but after that Cole was in full control. The right-hander fired 65 of 98 pitches for strikes and retired the final 15 batters he faced. Cole will take a 1.47 ERA and dominant 29:3 K:BB through 18.1 innings into his next outing, set for Saturday at home against the Rays.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Fans 13 in scoreless gem
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (1-0) earned the win by twirling seven scoreless frames with 13 strikeouts against the Orioles on Tuesday, allowing four hits and no walks.

Coming off a solid Opening Day start during which he notched eight strikeouts, throwing 62 of his 97 pitches for strikes, Cole put his brilliance on full display against Baltimore, sending 13 batters down swinging while throwing 71 of 97 pitches for strikes. In fact, Cole's 13 strikeouts marked a regular-season high in a Yankees uniform. Meanwhile, the right-hander's strong outing lifted New York to its 12th straight home victory against the Orioles. Cole will look to remain in the win column on the road Monday at Toronto.

Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Whiffs eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.1 innings in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays. He didn't factor into the decision.

Cole gave up three straight singles to open the second inning and bring the first run across, and he surrendered a game-tying home run to Teoscar Hernandez in the top of the sixth. The star righty threw 97 pitches in this Opening Day start, but he received no decision as the Blue Jays picked up the win in the 10th inning. Cole will make his second start of the season at home against the Orioles on Tuesday.
