Yankees' US$324m man

Sports | 12 Dec 2019

The New York Yankees landed the biggest prize of baseball's free-agent market, adding ace pitcher Gerrit Cole to their rotation with a record US$324 million (HK$2.532 billion), nine-year contract, a person familiar with the deal says.

Cole's deal established marks for pitchers in total dollars and with its US$36 million average salary, topping the US$245 million, seven-year contract Stephen Strasburg finalized a day earlier to remain with the Washington Nationals.
