On December 21, 1995, the New York Yankees re-sign free agent right-hander David Cone, who had been considering an offer from the rival Baltimore Orioles.
Cone re-signs with the Yankees as a free agent, inking a three-year deal worth $19.5 million. The 32 year-old ‘hired hand’ starts the season 4-1 along with a 2.02 ERA, before being diagnosed with an aneurysm in his right arm, resulting in being placed on the disabled list for the majority of the season.
Cone will participate in four World Championships with New YorK. going 6-1 over his post season career as a Yankee.
