James Paxton vs. Gerrit Cole, 4:05pm The M’s finished up a great comeback win in Pittsburgh last night by making a small change-of-scenery trade of struggling relievers. The M’s sent the injured Joaquin Benoit to Toronto in exchange for Drew Storen, last seen yielding a grand slam to Nelson Cruz this past weekend. Storen’s still only 28, and just a few years removed from...

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Pittsburgh Pirates. They’re 3-7 over their last 10 games, sit 11.5 games behind the National League Central leading Chicago Cubs, and have been passed by the St. Louis Cardinals for second. Now, star pitcher Gerrit Cole is going on the disabled list. The Pirates also intend to place RHP Gerrit Cole on the 15-day disabled list with...

Cole has slid under the radar of the Cy Young race as Clayton Kershaw, Jake...
