Gerrit Cole News
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole was outstanding on Sunday against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers but was handed a no-decision in an eventual extra-inning win after the Yankees had no hits heading into extra innings. Cole finished his day with seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits, walking none and striking out nine. The 33-year-old was absolutely dominant and currently leads the league in ERA (2.79), games started (30), innings pitched (187), batters faced (743) and WHIP (1.03) on the year. Cole has been even better in his last four starts, allowing only five runs (four earned) on 18 hits (three homers) while walking just two and striking out 34 in 26 2/3 innings. He remains a must-start for fantasy managers down the stretch.
Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Yandy Diaz launched his 17th home run of the season on Friday night. The shot game against one of the best in the game in Gerrit Cole. Diaz was 1-for-3 on the night with a strikeout, bringing his average up to .326 on the year to go along with a very healthy .910 OPS. Diaz has always been a solid player for the Rays, but this year he's turned into a stud for fantasy managers as well. He's been on fire over the last month, so make sure to get him in your lineup heading down the stretch run.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole was in ace form Friday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. Cole gave up two runs, one earned on three hits with zero walks and 11 strikeouts. He lowered his ERA to 2.95 on the season in the process. Arguably the best pitcher in the American League, Cole needed a nice outing after giving up six runs his last time on the mound against Boston. The Cy Young favorite moved to 11-4 on the season. He'll get a nice matchup next week against the Tigers at Comerica Park
We don't appreciate Gerrit Cole properly. Since escaping Pittsburgh, Cole has posted five straight seasons of ace-caliber production. The most impressive part of this run is that he has spent exactly zero days on the IL during all of it. He has been an iron man. In 2022, he posted his worst ERA outside of a Pirate uniform, a pretty pedestrian number of 3.50. The good news is that it came with another sparkling WHIP (1.02) and K%-BB% (27.9%). All of the underlying numbers point to Cole having been his normal dominant self, and there is no reason to think he will slow up in 2023. The inflated ERA and the "boring" feeling you get with Cole given his veteran status are sending him down a bit further in drafts this time around, and that is something we should absolutely take advantage of. Don't overthink it - Cole is still a tier-one fantasy stud; a true steal often going after pick 20.
