Wed Nov 1521:21Gerrit Cole Unanimously Wins First Cy Young Award
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole unanimously won the 2023 American League Cy Young to win the award for the first time in his career after finishing as a runner-up twice. The former first overall pick became the 25th pitcher to win the Cy Young unanimously and the 11th in the AL. He finished ahead of Sonny Gray and Kevin Gausman. Cole has been one of the most durable and dependable starters in baseball since 2018. The 33-year-old was the clear favorite in 2023 while leading the AL in ERA (2.63), ERA+ (165), innings pitched (209) and opponents' batting average (.206) while leading the majors in WHIP (0.98). Cole gave up just four earned runs in his final five starts. He became the sixth Yankees pitcher to win the award and first since Roger Clemens in 2001.

Wed Sep 2722:23Gerrit Cole Dominates AL East Rival Wednesday
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole was absolutely dominant in a complete-game shutout over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night. The AL Cy Young favorite tossed nine innings of shutout ball while allowing just two hits and zero walks alongside five strikeouts. With the outing, the 33-year-old lowered his ERA to 2.63 across his 33 starts on the season, 15 of which have put him in the win column. He managed to put a dent into the Blue Jays' playoff chances in the process as he has now tossed an eye-popping 28 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball against the Blue Jays this season across four starts. Cole should be able to cruise to his first career Cy Young Award in 2023.
Mon Sep 1114:51Gerrit Cole Takes Tough-Luck No-Decision
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole was outstanding on Sunday against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers but was handed a no-decision in an eventual extra-inning win after the Yankees had no hits heading into extra innings. Cole finished his day with seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits, walking none and striking out nine. The 33-year-old was absolutely dominant and currently leads the league in ERA (2.79), games started (30), innings pitched (187), batters faced (743) and WHIP (1.03) on the year. Cole has been even better in his last four starts, allowing only five runs (four earned) on 18 hits (three homers) while walking just two and striking out 34 in 26 2/3 innings. He remains a must-start for fantasy managers down the stretch.
Fri Aug 2521:18Yandy Diaz Goes Deep In Loss To Yankees
Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Yandy Diaz launched his 17th home run of the season on Friday night. The shot game against one of the best in the game in Gerrit Cole. Diaz was 1-for-3 on the night with a strikeout, bringing his average up to .326 on the year to go along with a very healthy .910 OPS. Diaz has always been a solid player for the Rays, but this year he's turned into a stud for fantasy managers as well. He's been on fire over the last month, so make sure to get him in your lineup heading down the stretch run.
Fri Aug 2521:13Gerrit Cole Bounces Back In Dominating Fashion
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole was in ace form Friday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. Cole gave up two runs, one earned on three hits with zero walks and 11 strikeouts. He lowered his ERA to 2.95 on the season in the process. Arguably the best pitcher in the American League, Cole needed a nice outing after giving up six runs his last time on the mound against Boston. The Cy Young favorite moved to 11-4 on the season. He'll get a nice matchup next week against the Tigers at Comerica Park
Wed Aug 221:52Gerrit Cole Delivers Seven Strong Innings In Win
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole threw seven two-run innings on four hits and two walks with eight strikeouts for his 10th win of the year on Wednesday versus the Tampa Bay Rays. The 32-year-old held up his end of the advertised pitching-duel bargain against Shane McClanahan in this one. After Wander Franco hammered a two-run home run in the opening frame, Cole would find a groove and rattle off six scoreless innings thereafter, notably punching out the side in the fourth. It was the superstar right-hander's sixth consecutive quality start, and Cole has now allowed three runs or fewer in 11 straight appearances. 2023's top-ranked fantasy starting pitcher totes a 2.64 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 157:38 K:BB in 143.1 innings into a road matchup against the Chicago White Sox slated for Monday.
Sat Jul 2219:21Gerrit Cole Fans 10 Batters In No-Decision
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole let in two runs on five hits and one walk with 10 strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings for a no-decision on Saturday versus the Kansas City Royals. The 32-year-old tossed two spotless frames before Nick Pratto took him yard for a Yankee Stadium short porch special, but the right-hander admittedly hung a curveball. After Cole fired a clean fourth inning, KC would add another run in the fifth, but he was able to get four more outs before his strong day concluded at 99 pitches. The six-time All-Star logged an AL-high 15th quality start of the year, toting a 2.78 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 144:36 K:BB in 129 1/3 innings pitched overall. Cole should take the ball at some point next weekend vs. the Baltimore Orioles, who he owns a 5.19 ERA with 24 punchouts in four starts against since 2022 (26 IP).
Mon Jul 1014:11Gerrit Cole To Start For AL In All-Star Game
New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole has been named the starter for the American League in Tuesday's All-Star game in Seattle. Cole is unlikely to go for more than a few innings after making his last start of the first half of the season on Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, when he went 7 1/3 innings. The 32-year-old right-hander remains one of the best pitchers in baseball after going 9-2 with a strong 2.85 ERA (3.43 FIP), 1.12 WHIP, 34 walks and 123 strikeouts in 117 innings over 19 starts in the first half. This year will be Cole's sixth All-Star appearance in his 11 years in the big leagues. So far in his two starts in July, he's allowed five earned runs on 11 hits while walking three and striking out 10 in 13 1/3 innings.

Sun Jul 911:53Gerrit Cole Caps Off Strong First Half With Win
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole threw 7 1/3 innings in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. The 32-year-old relinquished three runs on five hits and one walk with five strikeouts for his ninth win of the year. After the Cubs manufactured a run in the third frame, they stuck around just long enough to chase Cole in this one. Former Yankees teammate Mike Tauchman took him deep during the eighth to rudely end an otherwise solid showing from Cole. The 2023 All-Star's first half concludes with a steady 2.85 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 123:34 K:BB across 117 innings. Cole endured a rough May, but the fantasy stalwart has logged 13 quality starts this season. The hard-throwing right-hander figures to toe the rubber promptly after the break, lining up at Coors Field against the Colorado Rockies for a tough draw at some point next weekend.
Tue Jun 2014:32Gerrit Cole Trying To Keep Quality Start Streak Alive Tuesday
New York Yankees starter Gerrit Cole is taking the hill for Tuesday's matchup with George Kirby and the Seattle Mariners. The right-hander has been lights out lately, giving up just four earned runs over 18 innings across his last three games, all quality starts. Overall this season, Cole has pitched to a 2.75 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 7-1 record through 15 appearances. The 32-year-old might regress a bit, considering he's posted his lowest strikeout rate since 2017 (26.4%), but he's still a fantasy ace and is always a must-start.
Tue Jun 2014:27Gerrit Cole Looking To Maintain Consistency Tuesday
New York Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole will look to remain consistent on Tuesday when he takes on the Seattle Mariners at Yankee Stadium in New York. Cole has surrendered just four earned runs and three walks across his last three starts, all of which resulted in six innings of work. He has 19 strikeouts over that stretch with just one home run allowed. While he's surrendered five runs in three of his 15 starts, the perennial Cy Young contender has kept the damage to two earned runs or fewer in his other 12 starts this season. All told, the right-hander sports a 2.75 ERA and a 26.4% K% on the season, a figure that could see a boost against a Mariners offense that sits 28th with a 25.6% K% against right-handed pitching this season.
Fri Jun 912:20Gerrit Cole Good To Go For Friday
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole, who had his last start on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers cut short because of cramping, is good to go to make his start on Friday against the division-rival Boston Red Sox. The 32-year-old will be making his 14th start of the season after giving up only one run on four hits while striking out five in six innings in a win over the Dodgers last weekend. That outing was a nice bounce-back performance after Cole surrendered 10 earned runs in his previous two starts versus the Orioles and Padres. He's an absolute must-start for the series opener against Boston. Overall, Cole is 7-0 on the season with a 2.82 ERA (3.65 FIP), 1.13 WHIP, 28 walks and 84 strikeouts in 79 2/3 innings over his 13 starts.
Sat Jun 321:37Gerrit Cole Exits Saturday's Start Early Due To Cramping
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole exited Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to cramping. He allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings before leaving. The 32-year-old threw 80 pitches, but cramping kept the right-hander from pitching deeper into the game. Cole is considered day-to-day for now. He owns a 2.82 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 84: 28 K: BB across 79 2/3 innings. Cole is tentatively scheduled to face the Boston Red Sox for his next start on Friday.

Thu May 1802:13Gerrit Cole Tallies Fourth Scoreless Start Of 2023
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole tossed six scoreless innings and struck out six batters for a no-decision on Wednesday against the Toronto Blue Jays. The five-time all-star boosted his ERA to 2.01 in the process, good for the second-best mark in the American League behind Sonny Gray. After earning a win in four of his first five starts of the year, Cole has just one victory to his ledger over the following five appearances. The former ERA title holder has let in more than two runs only a single time this season and has yet to be saddled with a loss. Cole's next start comes on Tuesday versus the Baltimore Orioles, a club he has beat up on for a 2.33 ERA and 86 punch outs across 65.2 career innings against.
Sun Apr 1616:40Gerrit Cole Strikes Out 10 On Sunday
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole was dominant on Saturday in the win over the Twins. The righty threw a complete game. Even better, he allowed only two hits while walking one and striking out 10. Cole is now sitting on a perfect 4-0 record and an impressive 0.95 ERA through 28 1/3 innings. At this rate, it doesn't appear the 32-year-old will slow down anytime soon, so fantasy managers will anxiously await his next appearance on the bump.
Fri Mar 3100:55Gerrit Cole Nasty In Opening Day Win
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole had an immaculate Opening Day start on Thursday, tossing six shutout innings in a win over the San Francisco Giants. Maybe even more impressively, he struck out 11 Giants while allowing just three hits and two walks. Cole is looking to improve on his already great 2022 season, as he pitched to a 3.50 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP, and had a 257:50 K:BB ratio over 200 IP. If he can limit runs a little bit better, he has a very good shot at being the best pitcher in fantasy baseball.
Tue Mar 1413:16Gerrit Cole Hasn't Allowed A Run This Spring
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole has yet to allow a run in 6 1/3 Grapefruit League innings this spring while striking out 11 hitters. Cole seems to be in midseason form already, but he'll have to wait several more weeks. The hard-throwing 32-year-old had a disappointing 3.50 ERA (3.47 FIP), but he also produced a strong 1.02 WHIP and a league-high 257 strikeouts in 200 2/3 innings over 33 starts for the Yankees. Home runs were an issue, but otherwise Cole still looks the part of a fantasy ace, and managers should consider him a top-five arm in upcoming drafts.
Sat Oct 22 202222:42Gerrit Cole Takes Loss In Game 3
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't have his best stuff against the Houston Astros on Saturday, allowing five runs (three earned) over five mediocre innings in Game 3 of the ALCS. Cole gave up fives hits and two walks while striking out seven. Cole was undone by a misplay in the outfield where Aaron Judge and Harrison Bader nearly collided on a fly ball that fell in. Of course, the next batter homered, driving in what ended up being the game-winning run. This was Cole's worst start of the postseason, and unfortunately it came in a near must-win game for the Yankees. If they can somehow get back in the series, Cole would likely pitch Game 7.
Sat Oct 22 202213:23Gerrit Cole Starting Game 3 Of ALCS
New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole is making the start in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday against the Houston Astros in the Bronx. The Yankees ace will hope to give the Astros their first loss of the postseason and avoid falling down three games to none in the series. The 32-year-old made two starts against the Cleveland Guardians in the AL Division Series, going 2-0 while giving up three earned runs and 10 hits with two walks and 16 strikeouts in 13 1/3 innings pitched. Cole made just one start against Houston during the regular season and gave up just one run on four hits while walking two and striking out eight in seven innings despite taking a loss.

Tue Oct 18 202215:38Gerrit Cole Could Be Available In Game 5
New York Yankees starting pitcher Gerrit Cole "could be in play" in Game 5 of the American League Division Series on Tuesday against the Cleveland Guardians, according to skipper Aaron Boone. Cole extended the series to a deciding fifth game on Sunday in Cleveland when he allowed two earned runs on six hits while walking one and striking out eight in seven innings to pick up the win. The 32-year-old right-hander tossed 110 pitches in that game, though, so the Yankees would probably prefer not to use him. In his two starts against the Guardians in the ALDS, Cole has two wins, surrendering three earned runs on 10 hits while walking just two and striking out 16 in 13 1/3 frames.
