Around the Empire: Yankees news - 12/4/19

Yankees met with Gerrit Cole, set to meet with Stephen Strasburg today; Examining Derek Jeter’s Hall of Fame case; Exploring a potential deal to get Josh Hader.

MLB: World Series-Workouts Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports | Mike Rosenstein: The Yankees reportedly met with Gerrit Cole on Tuesday, and will meet with Stephen Strasburg today. If the Bombers miss out on both pitchers, they’re considering Zack Wheeler and Madison Bumgarner as backup plans. Wheeler reportedly has received a $100 million offer from somewhere and will likely sign in the next few days, though.

FanGraphs | Jay Jaffe: This is an in-depth look at Derek Jeter’s Hall of Fame case, detailing his entire career. There’s obviously no question that Jeter will be elected in 2020, but it remains to be seen if he’ll join Mariano Rivera and be voted in unanimously. | Randy Miller: The Brewers have made Josh Hader available. He’s set to make about $5 million next year, and won’t be a free agent until after 2023. Miller suggests a possible trade package of Miguel Andujar, Deivi Garcia, Chance Adams and Jonathan Holder for Hader. Would you pull the trigger on that deal? | Duane Cross: In this glance back at five of the top ten minor league games from 2019, the Yankees’ affiliates show up twice. Remember when the DSL Yankees scored a record 38 runs in one game? I do.
