Gerrit Cole's arrival a key early storyline for Yankees in Spring Training

The biggest storyline for the Yankees to begin Spring Training is the arrival of prized free-agent acquisition Gerrit Cole.

The right-hander took the field for the first time in a Yankees cap Wednesday, throwing his first bullpen session of the spring before speaking to the media Thursday afternoon.

Yankees fans surely can't wait for the team's new $324-million man to take the mound for the first time in pinstripes, and there's no doubt all eyes will be on Cole throughout his first spring with the club.

Watch Cole's first news conference of Spring Training below and stay tuned to YESNetwork.com for all the latest news leading up to Opening Day.
