Pirates trade pitcher Gerrit Cole to Astros

Pirates trade pitcher Gerrit Cole to Astros

Pittsburgh's return for the pitcher has yet to be revealed.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow also told Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle that he has spoken with several teams about Cole but has not agreed to any trades.

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. Passan did note that "generally, this sort of thing winds up with a deal being consummated".

The Yankees were also considered to be interested in Cole's services but contract talks with the Pirates fell off and never resumed. He didn't flinch under the pressure and posted a 2.45 ERA in those contests. He has a 3.50 ERA in 127 career starts. Keuchel, of course, becomes a free agent after the 2018 season, so Cole's presence will help cushion the blow of him leaving after the season, assuming he leaves. But this is a clear suggestion that the Pirates are in rebuild mode.
