After signing a historic $324 million contract with the New York Yankees, Gerrit Cole and his wife, Amy Crawford have more reasons to celebrate. The couple announced they are expecting a new teammate: Their first child, a baby boy! Cole is a three-time All Star and led the MLB with 326 strikeouts. He is third in the pitcher ranks with a 2.50 ERA. The Yankees signed Cole to the biggest free-agent contract ever for a starting pitcher earlier this year. Spring training is set to begin Wednesday in the Bronx ahead of the shortened 60-game season due to COVID-19. Cole is expected to take the mound against the Washington Nationals on Opening Day next month.
