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

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

Looking ahead to 2018, Cole will likely slide in as Houston's third starter, but he's a fine addition as an SP2 in 15-team leagues.

Reports from MLB Network's Jon MOrosi say that the Astros have traded for Pittsburgh Pirates ace starting pitcher Gerrit Cole. As for the Pirates, a full rebuild could soon follow with stars Andrew McCutchen and Josh Harrison up next on the trade block.

The New York Yankees, who selected Cole in the first round of the 2008 draft, made an aggressive run for Cole in December but were unable to come to any agreement.

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 has a 59-42 record and career 3.50 ERA with the Pirates, and has recorded 734 strikeouts.

Though Cole is coming off his worst season - 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA in 33 starts - he is capable of being an elite starter. Instead, they "settled" for Justin Verlander in a trade prior to the waiver deadline.
