Player Notes
Gerrit Cole fired six innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.

Advice: Cole held the Phillies scoreless over the first five innings before running into trouble in the sixth. While he managed to escape with just one run scoring, it was enough to put him on the losing side. Still, it was a big improvement from his first start back from the DL, as he struck out seven batters and walked just one. He’ll try to keep it going next week against the Brewers on the road.

Gerrit Cole struggled in his first start back Saturday, allowing five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits over four innings in a loss to the Nationals.

Advice: Making his first start in over a month, the rust showed, as Cole hadn't allowed more than three runs in a start since May 2. The loss dropped him to an even 5-5 with a 3.11 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. Surely missing a month with a strained triceps sets you back a bit, so expect the 25-year-old to only get better as he gets back into the swing of things. A friendly matchup with the Phillies on Friday could be the start to cure what ails him.

Pirates activated RHP Gerrit Cole from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: He's back after missing about a month with a strained triceps. The Pirates sent Josh Bell back to Triple-A Indianapolis to make room for him. Cole will get the ball Saturday against the Nationals in his first start of the second half. The right-hander has pitched to a steady 2.77 ERA in 12 starts this year.

Gerrit Cole (triceps) is scheduled to return from the disabled list Saturday at the Nationals.

Advice: Francisco Liriano will take the series opener on Friday and rookie Chad Kuhl will handle Sunday's series finale. Cole has been on the disabled list since June 10 because of a strained right triceps muscle. He struck out 12 batters over eight scoreless innings in his two-start minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis and should be safe for immediate activation in fantasy leagues even with a tough matchup looming in Washington.
