The New York Yankees have been off to a good start this season.
Unfortunately, they still have a ways to go before they catch the Tampa Bay Rays at the top of the American League East.
They are tied in second place with the Toronto Blue Jays with a 10-6 record and sit four games behind the Rays.
However, one Yankee in particular is off to a very solid start.
Right-hander Gerrit Cole has yet to lose a game through his first four starts.
He has won each of his first four games and has posted an 0.95 ERA.
On Twitter, MLB Network posted some of Cole’s early-season stats.

Cole has also worked 28.1 innings.
He has allowed just 13 hits and has already struck out 32 batters.
Needless to say, Cole is off to a hot start in 2023 and is getting the job done for the Yankees.
Last season, the veteran right-hander won 13 games in 33 starts and posted an ERA of 3.50.
The 32-year-old is now in his fourth season with the Yankees after signing with the team before the 2020 season.
And Cole’s hot start has been a major key for the Yankees, who are currently without Frankie Montas, Carlos Rodon, and Luis Severino.
On Sunday, he had one of his better performances, pitching a two-hit shutout over the Minnesota Twins and striking out 10 batters to help the Yankees secure a series split.
