Gerrit Cole might have a familiar target at his disposal this season.

Robinson Chirinos, who finished last season with the Mets, agreed to terms Monday with the Yankees on a minor league contract, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed.

Chirinos, 36, played in 2019 for Houston, where he received plenty of action behind the plate with Cole on the mound: Over 68 ²/₃ innings with Chirinos as the catcher, Cole pitched to a 1.57 ERA with 114 strikeouts and 11 walks.

Chirinos, who began last season with Texas, slots behind Gary Sanchez and Kyle Higashioka at catcher for the Yankees.
