Gerrit Cole's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Gerrit Cole was scratched yesterday ahead of his start with a hamstring injury. He was not able to make his start and the extent of the injury is not known. They are expected to know more about the injury today, so we’ll know if a stint on the IL is required.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Gerrit Cole to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 51.84 projected fantasy points puts him at #3 behind Justin Verlander and ahead of Clayton Kershaw. He has averaged 6.98 fantasy points in his past 57 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 7.41 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #11 most highly owned starting pitcher. Gerrit Cole is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #2 fantasy position rank.
