SP - NYY
Expert NoteView More Notes
Cole was pretty much as advertised in his first season with the Yankees. His ERA rose a tad, as did his home run rate as expected, and his strikeout rate fell a bit, though it remained at an absurdly high level. And, for the most part, all of his expected metrics fell off a tad from his 2019 season. But Cole's numbers from that season were so dominating that he could withstand plenty of regression and still be one of the best pitchers in fantasy. As such, he'll head into 2021 close to the way he came into the 2020 season: a dominant, high-strikeout, low-walk starter who will throw plenty of innings and who is more likely to finish as the top overall fantasy pitcher than he is to finish outside the top-10. It's a matter of personal preference between Cole and Jacob deGrom as the first pitcher off the board, but neither should fall outside the top-10 overall picks on draft day.

Gerrit Cole strikes out nine in Game 5 loss
Gerrit Cole allowed one run and two walks while striking out nine over five 1/3 innings during Friday's 2-1 loss in Game 5 of the ALDS. He did not factor into the decision.
Cole pitched on short rest and was able to limit the Rays to one run over five innings. He yielded a solo shot to Austin Meadows before being removed from the game in the fifth. Cole was terrific this postseason, owning a (2-0) record along with a 2.95 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 30 strikeouts over 18 1/3 innings. The 30-year-old ace figures to be one of the top pitchers off draft boards in 2021.
