Gerrit Cole Shows No Signs of Concussion

Top pitching prospect Gerrit Cole was struck with a line drive last night in Altoona’s game against Harrisburg. The right-hander was hit in the jaw, but went on to finish out the inning. He was pulled after one inning due to his pitch count, but the Pirates sent him for a CT scan as a precaution.

After an examination today, Cole shows no signs of a concussion. His CT scan was negative for any broken bones. The only symptom was a contusion on his jaw. Cole will be active today, and is expected to take the mound the next time he’s scheduled to start.

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.
