Liriano could be this years AJ Burnett. right now in AAA he has 11 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 17 K ..and 0 walks.
Karstens is also an above average pitcher.

Cole is one of their top 5 starters, they are competing for a playoff spot and they aren't rushing him. The only reason to wait is to play the super 2 game while throwing an inferior pitcher out there.

there's no guarantee that Cole will be any better than any of the current Pirates starters including those that are injured.
Cole has no major league experience. he could come up and do what Trevor Bauer did last season for Arizona. and that's not be very good.
I don't know what he has done in each specific game, but overall this season in AAA he has 5.79 BB/9. way too high. last year in AA he had 3.51 BB/9.
he's only 22 years old.
I wouldn't want to count on Cole until maybe September.
