2019 Fantasy Outlook
Calling Cole's 2018 campaign an up-and-down season hardly captures how varied his performance truly was. The right-hander parlayed a strong spring into a rotation spot with the Nationals, though he only lasted two starts in that role before being moved to the bullpen. He then struggled some more, ultimately being designated for assignment in late April after serving up 15 earned runs in 10.1 innings. The Yankees traded for him shortly thereafter and immediately deployed him in a multi-inning relief role, a spot in which he found more success. Though a rough end to the season inflated his ERA to 4.26, he produced a strikeout rate of 29.2% with New York while walking 9.5% of the batters he faced. Cole figures to fill a similar role for Cleveland in 2019 after being claimed off waivers in January, though he won't be afforded much of a leash if his struggles persist. Read Past Outlooks
