The New York Yankees ace has been brilliant since signing his record 9-year contract with the club. He proved that yesterday and continues his chase for his first career CY Young award.
Yesterday, Cole pitched an outstanding 7.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 Ks which lowered his season ERA to 2.79. He's been the one consistent positive on this Yankee club. Adding to his outstanding game, Cole became the first Yankee pitcher to record three separate seasons of 200 strikeouts or more.
The 9-year contract that the Yankees offered to Gerrit Cole has been worth every penny for them. As he consistently proves why he deserves it, the rest of the Yankee team has been a roller coaster all season long.
