Gerrit Cole gets hammered by the Rangers

by Dan Harris | Astros Correspondent | Mon, Apr 22nd 2:42pm EDT

Gerrit Cole allowed nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings against the Rangers on Saturday. He struck out eight and took the loss, falling to 1-3.

Fantasy Impact:

Cole's ERA is now up to a 5.22, though he has just a 1.19 WHIP despite the blowup. He said afterward that he thought he was tipping his pitches, which certainly could explain the incredible success the Rangers had. Either way, there's no reason to be concerned with Cole based off this single blip on the radar, and you should start him with confidence against the Indians.
