New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole wasn't pleased with a prank teammate Brett Gardner pulled earlier this season, causing the pair to get into an altercation.

Cole got in Gardner's face after the veteran outfielder paraded around the Yankees' locker room with pine tar on his hat, a source told NJ.com's Bob Klapisch.

Gardner was apparently trying to get a laugh out of Cole after MLB prohibited the use of sticky substances in June. The Yankees pitcher had been accused of using substances to aid his pitching before and after the ban.

It took a full day for Cole to calm down and apologize, but the matter was dropped, according to Klapisch's sources.

Along with the incident involving Cole and Gardner, Klapisch also reported on outfielder Joey Gallo's pregame dressing routine.

Gallo tweeted his displeasure about the story afterward.
