With tons of reports on Wednesday that Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole was on his way to Houston, here are the latest reports. The Astros still could very well work a deal for Cole, however it appears talks have settled at least for now...
Just spoke with Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow, who acknowledged he’s “talked to several teams about possible trades” but said “at this point, nothing is imminent."— Jake Kaplan (@jakemkaplan) January 10, 2018
Source: "No deal" for Gerrit Cole to Houston. "False rumor."— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) January 10, 2018
As is the case with these things, talks could pick back up quickly. For now, though, Gerrit Cole to Houston is not happening.
