Analysis: The Pirates initially offered Cole a $538,000 contract, which was a $7,000 increase over his base salary last year. According to Huntington, that was a franchise-record pay hike for a player with only two-plus years of big league service time. However, Cole's total earnings last season were $541,000 because he got a $10,000 bonus for making the National League All-Star team. Huntington said on Sunday the team ''made a mistake."

Analysis: Cole was limited to flat-ground throwing on Friday when pitchers and catchers held their first mandatory workout because of inflammation in his right ribcage. Cole is expected to throw from the slope of the mound on Monday. Cole says he feels fine and that he's ''not too far behind'' the rest of his teammates.
