The deal will pay Cole an average of $36 million per season. The contract has a full no-trade clause. One of the key things about the deal is there is an opt-out option after 5 years. If the opt-out is exercised the deal would now be worth $180 million after 5 years.
I personally do not believe Cole will remain a Yankee through this entire contract. Going a step further I don’t believe Cole will remain at the ace pitcher level after the first three years of this contract.
If Gerrit Cole actually plays out the entire contract he will be a Yankee until he is 38 years old.
