Report: Yankees’ trade for Gerrit Cole is not imminent

The New York Yankees may be in hot pursuit of Pittsburgh Pirates starter Gerrit Cole, but a deal is not on the verge of completion, according to a report.

Yahoo Sports’s Jeff Passan reported Friday that, though the sides remain engaged, nothing is close between the Yankees and Pirates.

On Thursday, the same reporter characterized a trade as a matter of when, not if. Barring a breakthrough, though, it sounds like nothing will happen until after the holidays.
