'No deal' between Astros and Pirates on Gerrit Cole

Gerrit Cole may eventually end up being traded to the Astros, but conflicting reports indicated as of Wednesday afternoon that Houston had not reached a deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates for the starting pitcher.

It was reported early Wednesday by Major League Baseball that a trade had been consummated between the two clubs, but Astros GM Jeff Luhnow denied the report, saying no trade was "imminent".

McCullers is saying the deal "is over" and official and he's pumped to have Cole aboard.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft, Cole made his big-league debut in 2013. He is only two seasons removed from a 19-8, 2.60 campaign in 2015, and he's still just 27, so he's an excellent bounceback candidate for 2018. He was an All-Star and finished fourth in NL Cy Young voting.

The World Series Champion Houston Astros may have gotten even better today.

If the trade does goes through, the trade would bolster an already-stacked rotation in Houston that includes two-time Cy Young award-winner Justin Verlander and 2015 victor Dallas Keuchel.
