Gerrit Cole To Start In AFL Rising Stars Game Tonight

New, 41 comments

Gerrit Cole, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft, will start against Danny Hultzen, the No. 2 overall pick, in the Arizona Fall League Rising Stars game at 8:10 PM Eastern tonight. Also, Robbie Grossman will lead off for the East. Bryce Harper will bat fifth.

UPDATE: Cole gave up five runs and two home runs (to Nick Franklin and Joe Terdoslavich) while striking out one and walking one over two-thirds of an inning. He did, however, show excellent velocity.
