Astros reportedly have talked Gerrit Cole trade with Pirates

Gerrit Cole Pirates

The Houston Astros are looking for another ace, and one option they have explored is a trade for Gerrit Cole, according to a report.

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan tweeted Monday about the Astros’ pursuit of another top pitcher. He says signing Yu Darvish or Jake Arrieta are options for Houston. A trade for Cole is another:

The Pittsburgh Pirates are believed to have made Cole available. The Yankees have been tied to Cole all offseason, but no deal has been made.

No trade for Cole appears imminent, but this seems to be another indication that Houston is looking to add to its staff. This also seems to be another indication that the team is preparing to lose Dallas Keuchel after next season.
