Yankees Rumors: NY Interested in Yu Darvish After Astros Trade for Gerrit Cole

The New York Yankees didn’t trade for pitcher Gerrit Cole but reportedly have their eyes on someone else: free-agent starter Yu Darvish.

On Sunday, John Harper of the New York Daily News reported general manager Brian Cashman’s interest in Darvish "is very real, largely because he believes this stalled free-agent market gives the Yankees a chance to get the Japanese star pitcher at a ‘reasonable’ price."

According to Harper, New York thinks it could sign Darvish to a five-year deal worth between $80 and $90 million.

The Yankees had targeted Cole, but the Pittsburgh Pirates announced Saturday they traded him to the Houston Astros.
