Astros acquire pitcher Gerrit Cole from Pirates

Astros acquire pitcher Gerrit Cole from Pirates”

The Houston Astros have agreed to a deal for Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

Cole to Houston also would be a tough blow for the New York Yankees, as the New York Daily News reported Monday that the Bronx Bombers landing the one-time All-Star was "inevitable." This trade increases Cole's upside in the wins department, but the move to the American League may offset those potential gains. For his career, he is 59-42 with a 3.50 ERA.

Cole also contributed to Pittsburgh's 2013 postseason run, making two October starts as a rookie. It's less clear how badly the Pirates need outfield prospects given the presence of Austin Meadows, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco.

While the Pirates focus on the future, Houston can turn its attention toward its World Series defense with another formidable pitcher in tow. Cole completes a very strong rotation behind Justin Verlander and provides insurance should Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers struggle with injuries again next season.
