Gerrit Cole Trade Rumors: Astros, Pirates Talks 'Gaining Momentum'

Brian Cashman will trade for Gerrit Cole but only on his terms

According to MLB.com, Houston has acquired Gerrit Cole from the Pirates.

Houston tried to get Cole prior to the 2017 trade deadline, but they were unable to do so.

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. However, Passan pointed out the Pirates would want either outfielder Kyle Tucker or pitcher Forrest Whitley in the hypothetical trade-the Nos.

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.

INEC: 2019 campaign starts on August 17
Governorship and state assembly elections will also hold same day on March 2, two weeks after the presidential election. The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC , has announced the timetable for the 2019 general elections.

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. Ken Rosenthal also confirms Morosi's report.

The 2015 version of Cole would fit the bill as a top-notch starter considering he was an All-Star with a 2.60 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 208 innings.

The Yankees' rotation now includes Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray and CC Sabathia.
