There are really no words for what Cole was able to do last year. He built on the massive gains he made from his first year with the Astros and lowered his ERA, WHIP, and walk rate to miniscule levels while totaling an outrageous 326 strikeouts. He'll move to the Yankees now, which is a mild downgrade given that the Yankees may slightly limit his innings in light of their long-term investment in Cole and their bullpen, and the opposing offenses and ballparks in the AL East compared to the AL West. But Cole's fastball and slider are beyond elite, and he should be the top pitcher taken in fantasy drafts.

Gerrit Cole looks impressive in intrasquad game on Sunday

Gerrit Cole did not give up any runs on four hits and one walk while striking out nine in 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's intrasquad game, James Smyth of YES Network reports.

Fantasy Impact

Cole was able to go 84 pitches which puts him on track to be able to go a full start with no restrictions on Opening Day against the Nationals. The veteran starter should be one of the top starters in fantasy baseball this season.
