Sources Indicate Gerrit Cole Prefers SoCal Destination

Per @JonHeyman – Gerrit Cole has two destinations at the very top of his list, which are the Angels and the Dodgers. Though the Yankees will continue to meet with Cole, the organization fears they won’t be able to persuade the Cy Young finalist simply because of location. The Newport Beach native opted to play college ball at UCLA and has expressed interest in returning home even before the offseason began.

The ball is in the Dodgers court, though the right hander is expected to land a 6 or 7 year deal around close to $35 million annually.

A reminder that Gerrit Cole went 20-5 with a 2.50 ERA and 326 K’s over 212 innings
