I need to go search that out.

Cole could very easily pitch better than he does if he or the team decided he could throw his out pitch everytime he goes out or they could tell him he needs to work on his changeup this time out and who knows that changeup might be getting clobbered, in the majors he would use his outpitch.
A lot of teams like St.Louis, Cincinnati let their pitchers pitch as well as they can and go by the results. If a 19 year old pitcher pitches lights out(Glasnow), he moves up, up and away, but that does not work that way at any level with Pittsburgh. Glasnow might be pitching in the majors for someone like Houston or St.Louis and billed as a phenom, but with Pittsburgh they will work on him till he gets to the majors no matter what level he is in, they will take him through his ups and downs in the minors, a lot of teams won’t.

I hope Gerrit becomes dominant, but more and more, I see a Brad Penny-like (to name one over hyped underachieving starter) career for him.
