CHICAGO (AP) — Gerrit Cole, the No. 1 overall selection by Pittsburgh in the 2011 draft, will make his major league debut Tuesday night when the Pirates host Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants.


The 22-year-old right-hander was 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 12 starts with Triple-A Indianapolis. He made his last start on Wednesday against Durham and pitched seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory. Cole did not give up a run in his last two starts spanning 14 innings with Indianapolis.
