Houston Astros’ pitches Gerrit Cole is one player who could potential hit free agency, and he knows how important it is.

I’m looking forward to it,” Cole said, according to Fox 26’s Mark Berman. “I know what my right is as a player. Once I get six years of service time, my right is to be able to say yes or no to a place I want to play. So I’m excited to be able to exercise that right.”

Cole isn’t ruling out a return to the Astros who he says “checks a lot of the boxes. I expect them to be there when push comes to shove. I wouldn’t mind playing there for a lot longer.”
