• Top prospect Cole set to debut, start Tuesday vs. SF

    And that's not to say Cole has disappointed in the minors. Ranked as the organization's No. 1 prospect by Baseball America, and 12th in all of minor league baseball, Cole went 9-7 with a 2.80 ERA in 26 starts last season during his first year of professional baseball. A touch more seasoning in the minors is probably what the doctor would prescribe to ensure he's ready for the task, but the Pirates also find themselves in a bit of a bind with Wandy Rodriguez needing to be skipped next time through with forearm tightness and Jeanmar Gomez just now working his way back from his own forearm issues.
