Coke was designated for assignment Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Pirates traded for Coke just two weeks ago, but he has already fallen out of favor, as they acquired Brady Dragmire from the Blue Jays to take his spot on the 40-man roster. Coke had success working as a reliever and a starter at Triple-A this year, but his 10 innings in the big leagues were unimpressive.

Coke's contract was selected from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Only a day after acquiring him from the Yankees, Coke will head to the majors to join the Pirates bullpen. Cole wasn't impressive in three appearances with New York this season, but his 2.96 ERA and 0.4 HR/9 he posted with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre show that there a little something left in the tank. That being said, the lefty will likely serve a low-leverage middle relief role going forward.

Coke was traded to the Pirates on Thursday for cash.

EDGE Analysis

The journeyman southpaw logged six innings out of the Yankees' bullpen this year but spent the majority of the season pitching as both a starter and reliever for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He posted a 2.96 ERA and 61:21 K:BB in 70 innings at Triple-A. He made 11 starts in the minors this year, marking the first time he was used as a starter since 2011, so perhaps the Pirates' scouts saw something they thought they could work with. Coke is expected to join the big league club Friday, at which point a spot on the 40-man roster will be cleared for him.

Coke was traded to the Pirates on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.

EDGE Analysis

Coke has appeared in three games for the Yankees on the year but has spent the bulk of the season at Triple-A, where he holds a 3.04 ERA and 1.29 ERA across 74 innings. The plan is for Coke to join the Pirates in Milwaukee on Friday, at which point the team will make a corresponding move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Coke was placed on the 7-day DL with an undisclosed injury Monday, LoHud.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The exact circumstances of the injury remain unclear, but more should become available if it's more than just a minor setback. The lefty struggled in limited big league appearances this season, but has worked to an impressive 0.83 ERA in five appearances (four starts) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Coke was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, LoHud's Chad Jennings reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was designated for assignment earlier in the week and will predictably head to Triple-A, going unclaimed by other teams. Coke should continue to offer organizational left-handed bullpen depth.

Coke was designated for assignment Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran lefty saw his ERA balloon to 6.00 after a rough outing Monday in Arizona in which he allowed three earned runs over 2.0 innings of work. Now that he's been designated for assignment, Coke will be available on waivers and he could be claimed by a team looking to add bullpen depth.

The Yankees called up Coke from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Coke will take the place of CC Sabathia, who landed on the disabled list with a groin injury. Coke, who tossed seven scoreless innings and struck out eight batters over two appearances with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, will grab a spot in the Yankees' bullpen for now.
