They did DL Cole last year but it was more precautionary. I expect that they monitor him very closely considering he is their Ace.
Any soreness would probably warrant a skipped turn or a DL trip.
he's also locating and throwing the change more often. All "cole hamels is god" aside he is an excellent pitcher
If its a keeper league and you traded him for Bobby Abreu I'd say you got hosed
