There are really no words for what Cole was able to do last year. He built on the massive gains he made from his first year with the Astros and lowered his ERA, WHIP, and walk rate to miniscule levels while totaling an outrageous 326 strikeouts. He'll move to the Yankees now, which is a mild downgrade given that the Yankees may slightly limit his innings in light of their long-term investment in Cole and their bullpen, and the opposing offenses and ballparks in the AL East compared to the AL West. But Cole's fastball and slider are beyond elite, and he should be the top pitcher taken in fantasy drafts.

Gerrit Cole signs $324M contract with Yankees

The New York Yankees have agreed to sign Gerrit Cole to a record-breaking $324M. It's a nine-year deal that pays Cole $36 million annually. There is a no-trade clause and the contract contains an opt-out after the 2024 season.

Fantasy Impact

Houston did wonders for Cole after revamping his repertoire of pitches. Once an inconsistent starter with ace potential in Pittsburgh, he dominated the Majors the last two seasons with Houston posting 35 wins and just 10 losses. Wins don't show how dominant he was though. During his time with the Astros, he posted a 2.69 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and had 602 strikeouts. The move to Yankee Stadium is a downgrade, but if he can continue to strike batters out, it may not make a huge difference in 2020.
