Yankees reportedly working on trade for Gerrit Cole

Trade talks between the New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates over pitcher Gerrit Cole are apparently back on.

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reported on Thursday evening that the Yankees are working on a deal for Cole.

Passan further reports that if a trade between the teams falls through, the Pirates are still likely to trade the pitcher regardless.

Cole, 27, is coming off a down season in which he posted a career-worst 4.26 ERA. He is under team control for two more seasons, which makes him attractive to teams looking to acquire him. The former No. 1 overall pick is 59-42 with a 3.50 ERA during his career.
