MLB Rumors: Here’s Yankees’ ‘Fallback’ If Gerrit Cole Pursuit Fails


December 10, 2019

At this point, it’s hard to believe Gerrit Cole signs with anyone other than the New York Yankees.

However, should their pursuit of Cole go sideways, the Yankees reportedly have a solid Plan B in mind.

New York is one of multiple teams linked to free agent pitcher Madison Bumgarner, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported late Monday night. Heyman added that Bumgarner likely is a “fallback” to Cole.

Take a look:

So, where do things stand?

Cole reportedly is expected to receive a contract well north of $300 million in total value. The Yankees, according to Heyman, already have submitted their offer.

Cole just might be the best pitcher in baseball, and would be a significant addition for the Yankees. Whether New York general manager Brian Cashman will do what it takes to land the 29-year-old remains to be seen.

Stay tuned.
