Top pitching prospect Gerrit Cole was struck with a line drive last night in Altoona’s game against Harrisburg. The right-hander was hit in the jaw, but went on to finish out the inning. He was pulled after one inning due to his pitch count, but the Pirates sent him for a CT scan as a precaution.
After an examination today, Cole shows no signs of a concussion. His CT scan was negative for any broken bones. The only symptom was a contusion on his jaw. Cole will be active today, and is expected to take the mound the next time he’s scheduled to start.
