“The numbers in Cole’s pitching line were tight, but the digits that left people in Waterfront Park buzzing came from the stadium radar gun. The 2011 first overall pick hit 100 mph five times Tuesday, including three times in the sixth inning.
The increase in fastball velocity over time, reminiscent perhaps of the equally hard-throwing AL MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander, is no mistake, according to Cole.
“In the start of the game, I’m just looking to apply my mechanics and get a gameplan down,” said the Pirates’ No. 2 prospect. “But as I get deeper into the game, I can become more aggressive because I’ve faced these guys a few times and crank it up a little. I almost never get tired too, so I’ve usually got something left in the tank even late.”

With the amount of late swings I saw, I’d say his fastball was definitely on tonight, which would put it at the 100mph(top end) range you saw at the futures game. The kid has remarkable focus on the mound, he gets the ball back from the catcher, he’s on the rubber, staring in for the sign.

Didn’t mention it above, but Trenton is the top hitting team(OPS) in the entire Eastern League. They have 130 homers, no other team has more than 90
