PHIL COKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees’ LHP Phil Coke accepts outright assignment to Triple-A

According to a report from Chris Cotillo of SB Nation, New York Yankees’ reliever Phil Coke has accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  While the veteran left-hander could have elected free agency instead, it appears that his best option is refining his mechanics down at the minor league level. The 33-year-old is currently serving his second stint...

We present, the Coke-Cain graphic: That surprisingly was one battle coke did not win. Cain ended up walking. This graphic also reminds us of our favorite MLB graphic of all time.

Phil Coke on Mariano’s Long-Toss Cutter

Phil Coke, who joined the Blue Jays bullpen today, has traded in his slider for a cutter. I’ll write more on that in this Sunday’s Notes column.

Detroit Tigers: projecting the 2015 opening day roster

The Detroit Tigers are resting comfortably atop the AL Central standings here at the All-Star break.

Tigers Notes: Phil Coke has revived career

DETROIT -- Phil Coke has become a baseball Lazarus. The left-handed reliever's career appeared to be all but dead with the Detroit Tigers after April, when he had a 8.10 ERA. That rose to 9.39 in May, and it was still a gaudy 6.56 after giving up three runs to the Minnesota Twins on June 14. But since then, Coke has been about as good as it gets. In his last seven outings, Coke has...

Detroit Tigers: what is the CUPCM stat?

Phil Coke entered Tuesday night’s win for the Detroit Tigers in the 9th inning with the simple job of holding the fort down as the team was sitting comfortably on an 8-3 lead. What better time to give the embattled lefty a chance to get some safe outs. Or not. Coke looked masterful in striking the first two hitters (Leury Garcia and Jordan Danks) out on nice sinking fastballs....

Detroit Tigers: Phil Coke’s gotta go

For the Detroit Tigers, in a year of roster transition, it is paramount to have players on the roster that are of a ‘winning’ caliber. This sounds so obvious, yet somehow Phil Coke has masterfully eluded being cut from the Tigers for years. It’s actually somewhat hard to believe that this is Coke’s 5th season with the team. And in those five years he has had exactly one significant...
