Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Receives clean bill of health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (elbow) threw an extended bullpen session Saturday and was given a clean bill of health heading into the offseason, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

An MRI had already cleared Cotton of any structural damage to his elbow, and now he can go into the winter with complete peace of mind having thrown off a mound with no issues. Cotton was a bust from a fantasy perspective this season, but he will still be just 26 next year and his changeup is still an exceptional offering. If the rest of his repertoire catches up, he could develop into a useful major-league starter.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Season comes to end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (elbow) will be shut down for the remainder of the 2017 season, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Cotton experienced some tightness in his elbow following his Sunday start and underwent an MRI on Monday which revealed no structural damage. The A's will take it easy with their young starter and skip his final start of the season. They will, however, send him into a bullpen session this weekend to ensure that he is healthy heading into the offseason. Cotton will conclude his 2017 campaign with a 5.58 ERA over 24 starts.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: MRI shows no structural damage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (elbow) does not have any structural damage to his elbow according to his Monday MRI, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Despite the good news, Cotton is likely to skip his last scheduled start of the season, which is slated for Friday against the Rangers in Arlington. Cotton experienced tightness in the elbow against Texas last Sunday following five strong innings, prompting the evaluation Monday. If he's indeed finished for 2017, he wraps up an up-and-down campaign with a 9-10 record, 5.58 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 105:28 K:BB over 129 innings.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Undergoes MRI Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton underwent an MRI on Monday after feeling tightness in his elbow after Sunday's start, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Cotton was excellent through five innings Sunday, but he had to be taken out due to the discomfort. His status for his final start of the season this week against Texas is up in the air until the results come back.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Gives up just one hit in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (9-10) threw five strong innings Sunday against the Rangers, giving up just one hit and walking another en route to the victory. He struck out six.

The young right-hander is having an up-and-down year, with his ERA ballooning above 5.00 every time it seems to be settling down again. This is the kind of start that has Athletics fans watering at the mouth, as he showed good command (51 of his 77 offerings went for strikes) and got back to striking out more than a batter per inning. Cotton's season ERA still sits at a lofty 5.58 mark, but he'll get one last chance to improve that when he makes another start against Texas on Friday.
