  • As a professional player, Gerrit has been selected for the All-Star game 3 times. He was first selected in 2015, then 2018, and again last year in 2019. Hes also been recognized with an All-MLB First Team, AL ERA leader, and MLB strikeout leader award. All three of these were awarded to him in 2019.
  • Gerrit Cole was recognized as a top free agent pitcher, and he got a contract worthy of the position. In December 2019, Cole signed a $324 million dollar deal with the Yankees. This 9 year contract would see Gerrit receiving $36 million dollars a year! That number may have been cut due to the restructured 2020 season, but thats still more money than some teams will be earning this year.
