The Pirates have announced that Gerrit Cole is headed to the 15-day disabled list with posterior inflammation of the right elbow, retroactive to August 25th. 

This marks Cole’s second stint on the DL this season. His first came on June 14th when he experienced a right triceps strain. Cole was pitching well the first half of the year, but has been the complete opposite in the second half, posting a 4.71 ERA along with a 1.51 WHIP and a batting average against of .311 in eight starts since the All-Star break.
