Cole is a talented LHP prospect who can fill it up. On the bump, this lefty has a 4-pitch arsenal in which to keep hitters guessing (FB, CB, SL, CH). He works from the stretch, has smooth separation and repeats his delivery well firing from a short/quick arm action. FB ranges from 73-74 mph while slight slight movement as he works it in and out. Changeup has some sinking action - 56-57 mph. Curveball shows to be his best pitch as it has late/sharp bite with 12/6 shape. Arm speed remains the same to that on his FB which will buckle hitters. At the plate, Cole shows a balanced setup with patience. He squares the ball up consistently and hits line-drives. More lower 1/2 drive will help to tap into even more power. Starting is a solid LHP who has a ton of upside and is one to keep an eye on as he fills out and gets stronger.
