MLB Trade Rumors: Astros deal for Gerrit Cole is imminent

Adjust Comment Print

Earlier this offseason the Yankees were said to be pushing to acquire Gerrit Cole from the Pirates.

Now, according to multiple reports, the Astros are on the verge of landing Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole.

"We have talked to several teams about possible trades", Luhnow told the Houston Chronicle.

Cole went 12-12 in 2017 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strikeouts.

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.

Fontana, who voted in favor of the final contract, said the board employs a city marshal to provide security during meetings. It's unclear if the deputy marshal was acting on his own accord-of if he was called on to have Hargrave removed.

Cole will join the top of the rotation with Justin Verlander and Dallas Keuchel, along with Lance McCullers Jr., Charlie Morton and Brad Peacock as options.

Pittsburgh selected Cole with the first overall pick in the 2011 draft.

Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole delivers a pitch during the first inning against the St. Louis Cardinals on September 23, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was an all-star in 2015. It was by far the worst performance of his career.

Right now the Yankees have Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray, CC Sabathia and Jordan Montgomery in their rotation.
