Pirates Agree To Trade Gerrit Cole To Astros

Pirates Agree To Trade Gerrit Cole To Astros

MLB Network reporter Jon Morosi said in a series of tweets that the clubs reached an agreement, and are working to beat Friday's trading deadline.

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.

Cole is coming off the worst year of his career with the Pirates as he posted a 4.26 ERA and allowed a.254 batting average against. His best season came in 2015 when he went 19-8 with a 2.60 ERA, 1.091 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 32 starts.

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

Gerrit Cole is not a member of the Houston Astros, at least not yet, after reports of the pitcher being traded were refuted or walked back.

The Pirates aren't realistic World Series contenders this year, so any return pieces will help restock the organization as it builds toward the future.

Whether it's Dallas Keuchel, Verlander, and Cole or Keuchel, Verlander, and Darvish at the top of the Astros' rotation in 2018, they're going to have a formidable group.
