Gerrit Cole Rumors: 'Mystery Team' Linked amid Yankees, Dodgers, Angels Buzz

There is reportedly a "mystery team" believed to be in the running for free-agent starting pitcher Gerrit Cole.

According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels are the three teams known to be in on Cole. Heyman noted that while another team is trying to make a play for Cole, it is "hard to imagine" them outbidding the Yankees, Dodgers or Angels.

With Stephen Strasburg signing a seven-year, $245 million deal to remain with the Washington Nationals, Cole is far and away the top starter available on the open market.
