Angels' Taylor Cole: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole has a shoulder issue, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It's unclear when the injury first cropped up for the 31-year-old, and the severity of it is also unknown. Cole seems unlikely to be available for the start of the season, though he there's a decent chance he wouldn't have been on the Opening Day roster regardless.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Gets spot on 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole will be part of the Angels' 60-man roster.

Cole, who is not on the 40-man roster, was slated to begin the season in Triple-A prior to the shutdown, but will now get another shot to break camp. The right-hander didn't fare will with the Angels in 2019, posting a 5.92 ERA in 38 games (six starts). His FIP stood at a respectable 3.29, however, so it's possible a bit of bad luck was in play. He'd likely be lined up for low-leverage situations should he get a chance to appear in the shortened season.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Remains in organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole went unclaimed on waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old was designated for assignment Sunday but will remain with the Angels after clearing waivers. Cole had 38 big-league appearances in 2019 but struggled with a 5.92 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 50:24 K:BB over 51.2 frames.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Bumped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was designated for assignment by the Angels on Sunday.

Cole was essentially ruled out of the bullpen mix for Opening Day after being optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake last week, but his path back to the majors is now more complicated after was DFA'd. The 30-year-old struggled in 2019 with a 5.92 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 51.2 innings for the Angels. Cole is likely ticketed for Salt Lake once the season resumes, assuming he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

Cole appeared in 38 games with the Angels last season, registering a 5.92 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 51.2 innings. Both his strikeout rate (21.6 percent) and walk rate (10.4 percent) were worse than league average, making his chances of earning an Opening Day bullpen spot unlikely. Cole was similarly uninspiring in Cactus League play, walking five batters and allowing three earned runs over four innings, though he did strike out eight batters.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

The 29-year-old hasn't been very good in 43.2 big-league innings this season, posting a 6.80 ERA and 1.67 WHIP. His numbers in 20.2 frames for Salt Lake aren't particularly encouraging either, as he owns a 5.23 ERA and 1.73 WHIP. He'll be a low-leverage bullpen option down the stretch.

August 27, 2019 06:44 PM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

Cole owns an unimpressive 6.80 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with a 44:21 K:BB over 43.2 innings this season in the big leagues, so he'll head back to the minors following the return of Keynan Middleton (elbow) from the injured list.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Earns relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (3-4) allowed just one hit over 1.2 scoreless innings, earning the victory in a 6-5 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Cole did well to suppress the White Sox during his appearance, and he became the pitcher of record as the Angels pieced together a four-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning. Cole has alternated between strong and sloppy in August, allowing four or more runs in three of his six appearances this month. The 29-year-old has a 5.40 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 39:17 K:BB across 40 innings this season.

August 6, 2019 12:12 AM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Lit up in first inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (1-3) was hit with the loss after giving up five runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two over one inning Monday night against the Reds.

Much like his last appearance as an opener, Cole was hit hard by the opposition from the start. He surrendered five runs in the first inning, putting his team in a big hole early on. The 29-year-old right-hander's ERA jumped from 2.94 to 5.14 over his last two outings after allowing nine runs over just 1.1 frames. It would be surprising to see the Angels use him as an opener moving forward considering the struggles Cole has had of late.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Will open Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole has been named the opener for Monday's game against Cincinnati, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Cole was roughed up during his last opening appearance, allowing four runs while recording just one out Friday against Cleveland, though he'll get another opportunity to open in the series opener. Patrick Sandoval, who is slated to make his big-league debut, will serve as the primary pitcher.

August 3, 2019 08:40 AM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Hammered as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (1-2) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs on four hits and a walk over one-third of an inning in a 7-3 defeat at the hands of Cleveland. He struck out one.

The right-hander fumbled the baton badly as the Angels' opener, allowing the first five batters he faced to reach base. Cole saw his ERA balloon by more than a full run as a result of this outing, and he now sports a 3.97 ERA and 33:16 K:BB with one win and two holds in 22 appearances (34 innings).

August 2, 2019 04:44 PM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Opening Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole will serve as the opener Friday at Cleveland, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Cole has a 2.94 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 32:15 K:BB over 33.2 innings this season and will once again work as the opener. Dillon Peters is slated to follow as the primary pitcher Friday.

July 23, 2019 06:28 PM
Angels' Taylor Cole: To serve as opener Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole will open Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Cole fared well in his last appearance as an opener, tossing two scoreless innings Friday against the Mariners. He'll get another chance to open in the series opener, with Felix Pena expected to follow as the bulk reliever.

July 20, 2019 09:48 AM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Excels as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole worked around a base hit to toss two shutout innings while operating as the Angels' opening pitcher in the team's 10-0 loss to the Mariners on Friday.

Making his third appearance as an opener this season, Cole aced the test, facing the minimum six batters in two innings before giving way to primary pitcher Jaime Barria. Manager Brad Ausmus said after the loss that he has no imminent plans to shake up the rotation, so Cole could be tasked with serving as the Angels' opener ahead of Barria and/or Felix Pena heading into the upcoming week.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Opening Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole will serve as the opener for Friday's game against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Cole owns a 4.58 ERA in 19.2 innings of work for the Angels this season. He'll face the toughest part of the Mariners' order before turning things over to Felix Pena.

July 5, 2019 01:12 AM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Rejoins Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

Jaime Barria pitched Wednesday and would not have been available to pitch again before the All-Star break, so the Angels made the logical decision to swap him out for a fresh arm in Cole. This will be Cole's fifth stint with the major-league team this season. He has struggled to a 4.86 ERA and 1.62 WHIP with the Angels and will likely pitch primarily in mop-up duty.

June 21, 2019 06:00 PM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Cole made three appearances out of the bullpen during his latest big-league stint, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out four over four innings. Luke Bard and Jake Jewell were promoted from Triple-A in corresponding moves.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

Cole has a 3.99 ERA and 55 strikeouts in 49.2 MLB innings. Cody Allen was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Angels' Taylor Cole: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

Cole only rejoined the Angels on Saturday but makes his return to Triple-A after allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits in his two appearances. The 29-year-old has a 4.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB over 12.2 major-league innings this season.

May 26, 2019 12:08 AM
Angels' Taylor Cole: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

Cole -- who owns a 3.37 ERA in 10.2 innings for the Angels this season -- didn't have to wait long to return to the majors after being optioned to Salt Lake on Friday. Matt Harvey was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
