Yankees target Stephen Strasburg signs record deal with Nationals as Gerrit Cole’s price rises

Stephen Strasburg has agreed to a seven-year deal with the Nationals worth $245 million, reports Jeff Passan of ESPN. It is a record deal for a pitcher that will also have ramifications when it comes to Gerrit Cole‘s market.

The deal includes a full no-trade clause and does not have any opt-outs, reports Tim Brown of Yahoo.

The Yankees met with Strasburg and Cole last week, though they have been focused on Cole. According to SNY’s Andy Martino, the Yanks have back-burnered other business in an effort to complete the Cole negotiations.

It was reported on Sunday by Bob Klapisch of the New York Times that the Yankees had a seven-year offer worth $245 million on the table for Cole.
