Cole Invited to Spring Training

The Pirates’ 2011 first overall pick Gerrit Cole has been invited to Spring Training by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

More after the jump.

 In the AFL this offseason, Cole went 2-0 with an ERA of 3 in 5 starts.  It’s not surprising that Gerrit Cole was invited to Spring Training, after all, he is the best prospect the Pirates have at the moment and they want to see him get a chance against AAA-MLB hitters.  Spring Training may change the Pirates’ minds about bringing him up in September, which is currently unlikely.  From a financial perspective, it is a great idea to bring a pitcher everybody wants to see to Spring Training.  More tickets sold = more money in the Nuttings’ pockets.
