PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The future is now for the Pirates.

The team announced Saturday afternoon that their top prospect, right-handed pitcher Gerrit Cole, will make his MLB debut Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants at PNC Park.

Cole, 22, was the Pirates’ first-round pick and the first-overall selection in the 2011 MLB Draft.

He will face the Giants’ Tim Lincecum.

Cole went 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 12 starts with Triple-A Indianapolis this season.

“Baseball America” ranked Cole as the Pirates’ No. 1 prospect and the No. 12 prospect in all of minor league baseball.
