Cole will take the hill for the Pirates in Sunday's season finale, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Cole dealt with a cut on his thumb during his last start, but was able to adapt, tossing seven innings of two-run ball. Although it affected his velocity a bit, the ailment won't stop him from making his regularly scheduled start. This announcement likely means that either Jeff Locke or Vance Worley would take the hill on Monday, and Edinson Volquez would start in the Wild Card game, if necessary.
