Gerrit Cole and the Pirates have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $6.75M contract. (Rob Biertempfel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Cole didn't exactly help his stock this past season finishing 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA as he struggled with the long ball (1.37 HR/9). A 3.97 SIERA in 2017 and 4.24 SIERA in 2016 shows that Cole is no longer the dominant pitcher that he once was, but he still offers plenty of upside at just 27 years old.
