Cole will start Tuesday vs. the Giants.
His last two starts have been good, but the ball is still getting put in play against him. Only 47 K in 68 IP this year in AAA. His walks have gone down, but I could see him running up high pitch counts early.
He was discussed in the "Are the Pirates for real" thread. I mentioned his control was poor this year...I guess we'll see.
This could be a big boost for the Pirates, or the start of their demise. A lot riding on his arm.
