09/27/2015 - Interactive Video Program - New Orleans, LA Cole is a talented 2-way player as an OF/LHP who has a solid all-around skill-set. In the OF, he takes a quick first step with good routes/angles to track down the fly-ball. He works into position behind it, secures it with 2-hands and plays through the ball well. Offensively, Cole shows a square/athletic stance with centered balance. Barrel delivery is quick on a short/direct path as he connects and hits line-drives. He hits the ball where it's pitched and utilizes the entire field. On the mound, this LHP has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot and loose/clean arm action. He works to a controlled balance point and drives off in-line toward the dish. FB ranges from 62-66 mph and he commands the zone. Breaking ball has 1/7 shape with late actions, showing to be a solid out pitch. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
