Gerrit Cole Makes His AFL Debut Tomorrow

Jonathan Mayo reports that Gerrit Cole will make his Arizona Fall League debut Friday for the Mesa Solar Sox.  The Pittsburgh Pirates held Cole back in the instructional leagues to make a few more starts before sending him to the AFL.  He arrived in Arizona earlier this week, and is listed as the probable starter for tomorrow’s game.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.


Pirates Prospects has been independently owned and operated since 2009, entirely due to the support of our readers. The site is now completely free, funded entirely by user support. By supporting the site, you are supporting independent writers, one of the best Pittsburgh Pirates communities online, and our mission for the most complete Pirates coverage available.

Any chance this game is being televised or streamed?  If not, will Pirates Prospects be getting any video?


I will be at the game tomorrow. I’ll be texting the play by play to someone who will not ba able to make it. I don’t twitt but I’m considering twitting the play by play so I can reach more interested fans. I guess I just need to figure out how to set it up.
