The Rockies couldn’t solve Jameson Taillon in his return from five weeks off and the Pirates supplied their starter with more than enough runs to start the week with a win.
Nolan Arenado got three hits in the losing effort and Kyle Freeland went 5.2 innings and gave up nine hits and four earned runs. It was his fourth loss of the season.
Tyler Chatwood was impressive in his last start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field and he’s given up two runs over his last two starts (14 IP).
Chatwood’s ERA (4.37) doesn’t quite align with his good WHIP and BAA numbers because of all the walks. He’s allowed about 4.5 walks per nine innings this season,
Gerrit Cole’s ERA has jumped nearly two full runs in his last four starts. He’s given up 23 runs over those four starts.
To me, he doesn’t look like a happy guy. He’s expressed displeasure in how the Pirates have handled his contract, trying to squeeze every dollar out of him before they likely let him hit the open market.
A trade isn’t likely either, unless he gives Pittsburgh no other choice.
And this is what I’m wondering about. If Cole wants to get dealt to a contender who might pay him sooner rather than later, it could help his cause if he lowers his trade value and gives a team like the Yankees or Astros a reasonable asking price.
That’s also pretty difficult to do and would be pretty revealing of Cole’s character if he did. I just don’t know what to expect out of him these days.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: it goes over.
Can Chatwood be good for a third straight start? And will Cole put his best foot forward? I’m keen on fading both of them and taking the over but both have ability to be so effective that I can’t pull the trigger on this one.
