Report: Cole, Strasburg to meet with Yankees in coming days

  Report: Cole, Strasburg to meet with Yankees in coming days The New York Yankees are scheduled to have meetings with Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg in the next two days, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. General manager Brian Cashman, manager Aaron Boone, and pitching coach Matt Blake are going to meet with Cole in California on Tuesday, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Sherman adds the Yankees are also expected to meet with Strasburg on Wednesday. The pair of Scott Boras clients represent the top two pitchers on the free-agent market this winter and are expected to eclipse the nine-figure mark. Both right-handers are attached to draft-pick compensation after rejecting their one-year, $17.

The New York Yankees already possess one of baseball's best bullpens and appear interested in making it even stronger.

New York is actively pursuing Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader, reports The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets are two other clubs that have inquired about Hader, Rosenthal adds.

Milwaukee wants a lot in return for the two-time All-Star, who has won the Trevor Hoffman award in back-to-back seasons as the top reliever in the National League, so a deal with any team remains unlikely.

Although the Yankees are fresh off spending $324 million to acquire starting pitcher Gerrit Cole and reportedly re-signed outfielder Brett Gardner on Thursday, they possess the prospect capital to add Hader.

Alberta loses beer battle in Appeal Court, but won't have to repay brewers

  Alberta loses beer battle in Appeal Court, but won't have to repay brewers EDMONTON — Alberta's top court has dismissed the province's appeal of a ruling that disallowed a program meant to promote local craft beers. But the Court of Appeal tossed out part of an earlier judgment that granted two out-of-province brewers more than $2 million in damages. In a unanimous decision, the court found that a 2015 policy by the previous NDP government to charge retailers a higher markup for beer brewed outside British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan was a barrier to interprovincial trade, which violates the Constitution.

Yankees prospects Deivi Garcia, Jasson Dominguez, and Estevan Florial are all among MLB Pipeline's top 100.

In three seasons of big-league ball, Hader owns a 2.42 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with 49 saves and a 15.3 K/9 rate. He was the third-most valuable reliever in baseball last season by FanGraphs WAR.

He'd make a great addition to a Yankees bullpen that already has Aroldis Chapman, Zack Britton, Adam Ottavino, Chad Green, and Tommy Kahnle.

New York's 'pen ranked second in WAR last season, according to FanGraphs, but were ninth in MLB in ERA (4.08) and FIP (4.15).
