Gerrit Cole arrives in New York City for Yankees introduction (New York Post)



Gerrit Cole has arrived.

The Yankees’ new $324 million man was exclusively spotted by The Post outside a Midtown hotel on Monday morning, one day ahead of his introductory press conference at Yankee Stadium.

Cole agreed to a nine-year, $324 million deal with the Yankees last week after a contingent led by general manager Brian Cashman wooed him before last week’s winter meetings during a meeting in California.

Cole, who grew up a fan of the Yankees on the West Coast, has emerged as one of the best pitchers in baseball and was the prize of free agency this offseason.

Cole, 29, went 20-5 with a 2.50 ERA for the Astros last season.
