MLB Rumors: Astros To Land Gerrit Cole In Trade Despite Yankees' Interest

MLB Rumors: Astros To Land Gerrit Cole In Trade Despite Yankees' Interest

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported the deal shortly after first noting a trade was a "imminent".

The teams have not announced the deal, and Cole has reportedly yet to be informed of the trade, so there is still a lot to get done.

Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole delivers a pitch during the first inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on September 23, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Cole, 27, pitched to a 12-12 record with a 4.26 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 33 starts last season. He was an all-star in 2015.

Starbucks trials 5p charge on disposable cups
If approved, the 25p levy will be introduced on all disposable coffee cups sold in caf├ęs, restaurants and coffee shops. Starbucks said on Friday it would trial a 5p charge on takeaway coffee cups for three months in about 20 London cafes.

Cole also contributed to Pittsburgh's 2013 postseason run, making two October starts as a rookie.

Passan reports that Houston is dangling outfielder Derek Fisherin the talks, although he says the Pirates would want more, which makes sense.

The defending World Series champion Houston Astros have clearly stated this winter that they're looking for a front-line starting pitcher. But this is a clear suggestion that the Pirates are in rebuild mode. Cole completes a very strong rotation behind Justin Verlander and provides insurance should Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers struggle with injuries again next season.
