Jeff Locke or Gerrit Cole?


I can only keep one of these guys. My pitching is so loaded right now. Which one is better for the rest of this year?

ETA: My whole roster. Jeff Locke is currently a free agent, which is a miracle.

Cole has higher upside.

Locke is in for some regression.

Locke will regress some in the second half seeing as his strand rate is unsustainable. Long term definitely Cole, but if it is only a one year league I would go with Locke. Cole will likely have an innings cap and get shut down at some point in September.

Let me throw Rick Porcello in there as a possible drop guy, but he is playing SO WELL right now.

If it's a non-keeper, try to sell high on the rookie and pair him with a closer for an upgrade. Put out some trade before you cut someone.

I like Locke this season, but his stike/ball ratio is terrible.

Andrew Bailey lost his closer role. I've got both now!

Locke threw another good one last night, gave up a solo shot but he's got 7 wins now and a 2.06 ERA. Hopefully regression doesn't bite him or Liriano soon.
