Astros place starter Cole on bereavement list
2:52 PM ET
Whether looking for that final piece or building for the future, every team has a reason to make a deal. Here’s whom they should be shopping around.
To fill his roster spot, the Astros recalled outfielder Jake Marisnick from Triple-A Fresno.
Cole, who had 11 strikeouts in a 2-0 loss to the A’s on Monday, trails only Boston’s Chris Sale (176) in strikeouts entering Tuesday’s games.
While on the bereavement list, Cole, who is 9-2 with a 2.57 ERA, must sit out at least three games and can’t miss more than seven.
Marisnick, who was sent down Saturday but had not played a game for Fresno, is hitting .190 this season with seven home runs and 19 RBIs.
