The Yankees turned to a veteran starter to assist them close Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg.

Andy Pettitte was component of the Yankees contingent in California that fulfilled with the two cost-free-agent aces on Tuesday and Wednesday, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed. That team also provided Yankees GM Brian Cashman, supervisor Aaron Boone and new pitching mentor Matt Blake.

The Yankees have momentum with the 29-year-aged Cole, who is the jewel of this no cost-agency class. The Post’s George A. King III claimed Wednesday that Cole’s precedence is winning, and not taking part in on the West Coastline as initially believed. It is believed that Strasburg, 31, will finally re-indicator with the Nationals.

Pettitte final pitched in 2013 and, like Cole, used a transient part of his profession with the Astros. Pettitte was named a particular adviser to Cashman in February.
