Yankees ace Gerrit Cole has been caught up in a lawsuit involving the Angels and a fired clubhouse manager for the team after attorneys for Brian “Bubba” Harkins submitted a text message, allegedly from Cole, in Orange County (Calif.) Superior Court on Thursday, according to reports, including one in the Los Angeles Times.

“Hey Bubba, it’s Gerrit Cole, I was wondering if you could help me out with this sticky situation,” the pitcher, then with the Astros, wrote on Jan. 17, 2019, adding a wink emoji, according to the reports. “We don’t see you until May, but we have some road games in April that are in cold weather places. The stuff I had last year seizes up when it gets cold.”

Harkins, who was fired in March after the Angels were informed that a Major League Baseball investigation had found he was providing banned substances to pitchers to enhance their grip on the baseball, filed a defamation suit against the Angels and MLB in August. The team and the league filed a motion in November to dismiss the suit. In response to that motion, which claimed the 55-year-old Harkins was being used as a “scapegoat,” his attorneys submitted evidence, including the text.

The origin of that information has not been verified and could be in question. More than a dozen other pitchers were also mentioned — both Angels and visitors — in the suit as having used the substance provided by Harkins. Pitchers have used similar substances through the years, but MLB has sought to crack down on the practice.

The other kind of substance are the slippery kinds, like petroleum jelly, personal lubricant, Crisco. This is used not for grip but to change the effect shape of the ball in flight. A perfect sphere will move predictably along a trajectory, but a more oblong shape will move in more unpredictable ways. Gaylord Perry was famously, finally, ejected in 1982 after being perhaps the most widely-recognized spitballer in baseball, and a couple of seasons later, Rick Honeycutt had a thumbtack in his glove, grooving the sides of the baseball to induce this kind of unpredictable movement.

Of course most stories about spitballs are anecdotal and some apocryphal, only confirmed when a pitcher is actually caught — see Michael Pineda’s famous case — but this week, a court filing shed a little light on the continued usage of spitballs around the league.

Hey Bubba, it’s Gerrit Cole, I was wondering if you could help me out with this sticky situation. We don’t see you until May, but we have some road games in April that are in cold weather places. The stuff I had last year seizes up when it gets cold.

Aside from my general disappointment with Gerrit Cole texting like a 13-year old, this appears to be a case where a player is conspiring to doctor baseballs, and that last sentence indicates that this is not Cole’s first time. The recipient of the text, Brian “Bubba” Hawkins, was the visiting clubhouse manager for the Angels, fired almost a year ago and now the plaintiff in a case contending baseball writ large made him a public scapegoat for distributing spitball-friendly substances to players around the league. Hawkins’ suit accuses not just Cole, but Cy Young winners Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Felix Hernandez, and most of the notable Angels pitchers of the last 15 years.

The inclusion of Cole and Verlander in particular caught a lot of attention, as the two are among the vanguards of pitching analytics, especially with respect to their use of high-spin fastballs up in the zone. Of course, both are veterans of the Astros analytics system, and their habit of increasing spin rate. Verlander’s spin on the fastball went from averaging 2559 RPM his last full season in Detroit to 2618 RPM in first full season in Houston, while Cole saw an even greater increase:

You can increase spin rate naturally — velocity alone is linearly related to spin, so throwing a ball harder will impart more spin — but even that link, from the venerable Driveline, makes mention of how the changing physical condition of a pitcher’s hand can increase spin, making a fastball much more effective:

Given that we know pitchers have only a handful of milliseconds to impart shear force on the baseball, any additional adhesive properties or friction between the fingers and the ball is likely going to be valuable in helping generate spin (Kinoshita et al., 2017).

This is more or less public knowledge. Players aren’t conspiring in the back rooms of smoking clubs, and even the wink and nod that MLB and its umpires give to the use of spitballs in a modern context are open secrets around the game. In Japan, NPB has gone one step further, proactively adding tack to every single league baseball, so the incentive to further doctor a ball is lessened, and the necessity of better grip in less-than-ideal weather disappears.

And that’s where I think MLB needs to go with this. In all things, you can take a prohibition attitude towards rule breaking, or a harm reduction attitude. The former would mean that players like Cole, Verlander, and others found to be enhancing their grip face substantial punishment from the league. However, as our own commenter Harlan Spence put it yesterday:

Yankees sign pitcher Jhoulys Chacin to minor league contract
Last year, Trevor Bauer wrote in The Players’ Tribune that he was suspicious of how pitchers on the Astros teams Cole pitched for had improved their spin rate so dramatically.

“When I see a guy go from being a good pitcher for one team and spinning the ball at 2,200 rpm, to spinning the ball at 2,600 or 2,700 in Houston, I know exactly what happened,” Bauer wrote.

Bauer never mentioned Cole’s name in the story. The Post’s Joel Sherman asked Cole about the issue in February, after he signed a nine-year, $324 million deal with the Yankees. Cole did not respond to Bauer’s story, but regarding the notion the Astros were better at creating a sticky product or teaching how to use that product, Cole repeated three times, “No.”

In response to the LA Times story, Bauer wrote on Twitter, “It’s almost like it did exist. Wow. The more you know… how crazy.”

He had a meltdown in Game 2 of the Wild Card series against the Yanks, but one bad appearance won’t erase his overall body of work. Several teams are circling him, including the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox. If the Bombers want to bring an elite southpaw for their bullpen, Hand is the man.

If the Yankees want some certainty, they could bring Justin Wilson, a familiar face that already knows how to pitch in the Bronx. The lefty dominated out of the Yankees’ bullpen in 2015, posting a 3.10 ERA and a 2.69 FIP in 61.0 innings.

Yankees Aroldis Chapman Jersey

He has a 3.27 ERA and a 3.34 FIP in his career, with almost 10 strikeouts per every nine frames. He is experienced, he is talented, and he can get both lefties and righties out.

There are appealing options on the free-agent market, paced by Brad Hand, whom the Yankees last saw coughing up the lead in the memorable Game 2 of the American League Wild Card Series against the Indians. The lefty was lights-out during the regular season, converting all of his Major League-leading 16 saves while pitching to a 2.05 ERA over 22 innings. He struck out 29 against four walks.

Hand’s $10 million price tag was too rich for the Indians, and the other 29 teams passed when he hit the waiver wire — an indication of the financial crunch that 2020 placed upon the league. The Yankees should circle back once LeMahieu’s situation is settled. Other names of interest include Archie Bradley, Liam Hendriks and Kirby Yates. At present, the Yanks’ bullpen locks project to be Zack Britton, Luis Cessa, Aroldis Chapman, Chad Green and Adam Ottavino.

How do you think the Francisco Lindor deal affects LeMahieu’s market? Is Cashman under more pressure to get a deal done now?

Womens Aroldis Chapman Jersey

Lindor’s arrival in Queens erases a backup plan, but it also nixes a dark-horse landing spot for LeMahieu, who remains most prominently connected to the Blue Jays, Dodgers and Yankees. Thus far, none of those clubs are believed to have offered the guaranteed fifth year that LeMahieu’s agent, Joel Wolfe, is seeking.

The industry bet continues to be that LeMahieu will eventually land back in The Bronx (perhaps a four-year deal with a fifth-year option), but the sluggish pace of negotiations seems to be impacting the Yankees’ other business. Cashman acknowledged as much recently, saying that LeMahieu’s free agency is “driving the bus” on the team’s offseason plan.

In 2019, Wilson pitched well for the Mets (3.66 ERA, 3.04 FIP in 19.2 innings). Even at 33 years old, he remains a reliable reliever that shouldn’t cost more than $5 million per season and probably won’t require a long, multi-year commitment.

McGee, a 34-year-old left-hander, had six very good years in Tampa to start his career. However, everything went south when he joined the Colorado Rockies in 2016. He pitched poorly in three out of four seasons there but joined the Dodgers just a few days before the start of the shortened 2020 campaign. And what a performance he had.

Youth Aroldis Chapman Jersey

With a 2.66 ERA and a 1.67 FIP in 20.1 innings, not to mention 14.61 strikeouts per nine frames, McGee regained the form that made him one of the top lefties in MLB in the early 2010s.

Of course, we are talking about only 20.1 innings, but wow. Although the Yanks have Britton and Chapman, it wouldn’t hurt to add McGee, who shouldn’t be too expensive despite his big year.

The New York Yankees offered a contract to catcher Gary Sanchez on Wednesday, the deadline for teams to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players for the 2021 season.

The Yankees also agreed to a one-year, $1.05 million contract with right-hander Luis Cessa and a one-year deal with right-hander Ben Heller, who gets $625,000 in the majors and $225,000 in the minors.

The Yankees allowed right-hander Jonathan Holder to become a free agent, declining to offer a 2021 contract.

Sanchez was replaced by Kyle Higashioka as the Yankees’ primary catcher in the playoffs after hitting just .147 in the regular season with 10 home runs and 24 RBIs.

The .147 average would have been the lowest in the majors if he had had enough at-bats to qualify. He continued to slump in the postseason, going 1-for-8 in three games. The one hit was a home run.

NEW YORK – Gary Sanchez was tendered a New York Yankees contract for 2021, ending speculation that the struggling catcher might be cast into free agency.

Following Wednesday’s 8 p.m. non-tender deadline, the Yankees announced that they had come to terms on one-year contracts with right-handers Luis Cessa and Ben Heller.

The Yankees also announced they had non-tendered right-handed reliever Jonathan Holder, making him a free agent.

Holder, 27, was due an arbitration bump from his $750,000 contract in 2020.

Over five seasons in pinstripes, Holder appeared in 157 games and posted a 10-6 record with a 4.38 ERA. Last season, Holder went 3-0 with a 4.98 ERA in 18 games.

Earlier Wednesday, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported via Twitter that the Yankees had planned to tender a contract to Sanchez, coming off a brutal 2020 season.

As an arbitration eligible player, Sanchez is likely to get about a $1 million raise from his prorated $5 million salary in 2020.

Sanchez turned 28 on Wednesday, and the Yankees tweeted out birthday greetings via the club’s official account.

In 2019, Sanchez slugged 34 home runs in just 104 games while hitting .232.

A two-time All-Star, Sanchez has slashed .236/.320/.502 with 115 home runs and 286 RBIs in six seasons with the Yankees.

Cessa missed the start of the season after testing positive for COVID-19 and made his debut on Aug. 5. The 28-year-old right-hander had a 3.32 ERA with no decisions in 16 relief appearances and 21 2/3 innings, striking out 17, walking seven and allowing 20 hits. Cessa made $331,481 in prorated pay from an $895,000 salary.

Cessa is 7-12 with a 4.40 ERA in 19 starts and 83 relief appearances over five seasons with the Yankees. He is eligible for free agency after the 2023 season.

Heller. 29, had a 3.00 ERA in six relief appearances, striking out six and walking two in six innings. He was ejected on Sept. 2 after hitting Tampa Bay’s Hunter Renfroe on his leg with a 95 fastball, a day after New York closer Aroldis Chapman threw a 101 mph fastball over Mike Brosseau’s head, drawing a suspension.

Holder, 27, was 3-0 with a 4.98 ERA in 18 relief appearances, striking out 11 and walking 11 in 21 2/3 innings. He spent parts of the last five seasons with the Yankees.
