Gerrit Cole throws five shutout innings in rehab start

On the disabled list with a strained lat muscle, Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole tossed five shutout innings Monday in a minor-league rehab start at Triple-A. He allowed five hits, striking out seven and walking three while throwing 81 pitches.

It seems particularly rare for me in this day and age...
