Gerrit Cole walking off mound with trainer home uniform

Gerrit Cole walking off mound with trainer home uniform

As the Yankees continue to push for a spot in the postseason, the last thing they need is an injury to ace Gerrit Cole, but that was the case on Tuesday night.

Coming off of a ridiculous 15-strikeout, no-walk performance, Cole was not very sharp on Tuesday night, allowing three earned runs on five hits with two strikeouts and two walks in 3.2 innings. After a Reese McGuire sac fly, Cole signaled to the Yankees dugout to have a trainer come out. After a quick discussion on the mound, Cole left the game, putting on his jacket in the dugout before heading down the tunnel.

The Yankees later announced that Cole left with left hamstring tightness.

MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees “played it safe” by pulling Cole from the game, with “the hope and even belief” that Cole’s injury is not very severe.

Cole has pitched himself into the mix for the AL Cy Young Award, posting a 2.84 ERA with 217 strikeouts in 158.2 innings.

He was replaced on the mound by Albert Abreu with Toronto leading 3-1.

This is a developing story. More to come …
