Gerrit Cole Trades and Transactions

The Gerrit Cole trades and transactions seen below include all known instances where Gerrit Cole has been involved in a trade or transaction of any type as it relates to baseball.

"He's (Gerrit Cole) really good. I've caught some really good ones, and I've been impressed -- with his stuff, his demeanor, his makeup on the mound. Stuff-wise, he has an electric arm and he knows how to use it. He's freakin' good. If he's not the best, he's right up there," Martin had added. "He can really pitch. There'll be a learning curve there, learning how to deal with adversity, but I would not be surprised if that kid is one of the best in the game -- soon." - Russell Martin on MLB.com (Tom Singer, 06/08/2013, 'Hurdle: 'It's just the right time' for Cole's promotion', Source )
