Top Gerrit Cole News

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Good to go Friday

    Cole (cramps) is listed as the Yankees' scheduled starter for Friday's home game against the Red Sox.

    Cole will return to the mound on five days' rest after his most recent start last Saturday against the Dodgers was cut short when he experienced cramping. The Yankees never sent in the right-hander for any further testing, so Cole never looked to be at any major risk of missing out what will be his 14th start of the season. Cole carries a 7-0 record, 2.82 ERA and 1.13 WHIP into Friday's contest.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Leaves vs. Dodgers due to cramping

    Cole left Saturday's start against the Dodgers due to cramping, Bryan Hoch of reports. He allowed one run over six innings on two hits with five strikeouts and two walks before leaving.

    Cole threw just 80 pitches in the start, but the cramping kept the right-hander from advancing deeper into the game. The right-hander should be considered day-to-day, but unless he's revealed to be dealing with something more significant than cramping, he should be ready to make his next scheduled turn through the rotation next weekend against the Red Sox.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Strong start wasted Wednesday

    Cole didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-0 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays, allowing seven hits and two walks over six scoreless innings. He struck out six.

    The veteran right-hander was dominant for 104 pitches (70 strikes), generating 30 called or swinging strikes en route to his seventh quality start in 10 outings, but Chris Bassitt matched him goose egg for goose egg and the game was eventually left in the hands of the bullpens.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Another no-decision against Tampa

    Cole didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-5 win over the Rays, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out four.

    The right-hander will be glad to see the last of Tampa Bay's hitters for a while -- after serving up zero homers in his first seven starts of 2023, Cole got taken deep four times over back-to-back outings against the Rays, including a pair of solo shots in this one. He remains undefeated on the year at 5-0, and he'll take a 2.22 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 62:18 K:BB through 56.2 innings into his next start, likely to come next week in Toronto.

  • Yankees' Gerrit Cole: Blows six-run lead

    Cole did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks over five innings during an 8-7 defeat to the Rays in extras. He struck out six.

    Cole had been a prototypical ace over his first seven starts, posting a 1.35 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 52:14 K:BB across 46.2 innings, but Sunday's performance was a step in the wrong direction. He was spotted a six-run lead and held Tampa Bay scoreless through four innings, but he couldn't maintain the advantage and surrendered six answered runs, including home runs by Jose Siri and Christian Bethancourt, before being pulled with no outs in the sixth. The homers were the first allowed by the right-hander this year, and his five innings were a season low. Cole's next start is projected for a rematch against the Rays, so it'll be a solid bounce-back opportunity after he submitted his worst outing of the campaign thus far.
