FREE AGENCY UPDATE
Here's how the Yankees are already recruiting Gerrit Cole
Gerrit Cole has the option of playing for about any team he wants, and now players are already contacting Cole and trying to recruit him to play for their team.
Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has been through this free agency process before, and he's a California guy that decided to take the big money to play in New York.
Sabathia recently appeared on the R2C2 podcast saying he's already talked to Cole about playing in New York, and it sounds like he's hinting that if the Yankees pay him enough money, playing on the West Coast won't be a critical factor in the decision. You can listen to the podcast below.
