By MARK DIDTLER
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Gerrit Cole struck out two and walked one in a hitless inning of his spring debut with the New York Yankees. Cole's first pitch to Adam Frazier of the Pittsburgh Pirates was a 97 mile per hour fastball. After Frazier popped out and Bryan Reynolds struck out, Cole walked Cole Tucker. Cole then fanned Josh Bell to finish up. Cole signed a $324 million, nine-year contract as a free agent after going 20-5 with a 2.50 ERA and 326 strikeouts last season for the AL champion Houston Astros.
