The Florida State All-Star Game will happen at the gorgeous ball park in Port Charlotte, Florida on June 16. Let’s trust that Jameson Taillon and Gerrit Cole won’t be there to play.
Cole has thrown 51 innings and has given up 14 earned runs. He has 50 strikeouts over his ten starts. Cole is fifth in ERA with a 2.47, second in WHIP at 1.04, first among starters in batting average against (.208) and third in fewest baserunners allowed per nine innings (9.71.)
Taillon has thrown 52 innings and has given up 19 earned runs. He has 48 strikeouts in his ten starts. Taillon has the second lowest batting average against right behind Cole at .214 among FSL starters.
The Bradenton pitching staff ranks second in the FSL in ERA with a 3.34.
Pirates fans are certainly happy to see the All-Star announcement, but we have to think that a promotion to Altoona will be even better news.
