    Cole could really be something, but he’s had enough injuries so far that it’s hard to say for sure what that something could be. His elbow blew out as soon after he arrived at Texas A&M. He barely got back on the mound for his redshirt freshman season in 2018. This year, as a redshirt sophomore, he showed a 92-95 mph fastball and even touched 98 mph during the fall. Between that and the splitter he developed, he has the makings of being a dominating reliever. He threw just eight innings this spring before being shut down with a sore shoulder. He’s completed just 17.2 innings in three years at Texas A&M, although he did throw an additional 35 innings in the Northwoods League last summer. His control needs to improve. Cole has excellent fast-twitch athleticism for a 6-foot-6 pitcher, but a team drafting him now is making a big bet on future potential.
