Yankees had odd reason for not bumping Yoshinobu Yamamoto bid

Published on

The New York Yankees were outbid by the Los Angeles Dodgers in their pursuit of Yoshinobu Yamamoto, as they refused to go above $300 for the Japanese ace. There was slightly more at play than simply the financial figure, however.

The Yankees felt that $300 million was a fair offer and did not want to go above it , as we were already aware. According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, though, the club also did not want to hand out a larger deal than the nine-year, $324 million contract they gave Gerrit Cole prior to the 2020 season.
