Gerrit Cole to Houston Astros from Pittsburgh Pirates

Gerrit Cole to Houston Astros from Pittsburgh Pirates

The Houston Astros will be the team receiving Cole, and will be sending four players to Pittsburgh, right-hander Joe Musgrove, third baseman Colin Moran, right-hander Michael Feliz and outfielder Jason Martin.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow even addressed the speculation.

"Acquiring these four quality young players, three of whom we project to be an important part of our 2018 team, with many years of potential contribution, is an important step for us as we work toward bringing playoff baseball back to our fans", he said.

Days ago it was repoted that the Astros were acquring pitcher Gerrit Cole from the Padres.

The deal was reportedly close to happening earlier in the week before talks stalled.

Moran will now get an opportunity to be the Pirates' starting third baseman, with David Freese sliding into a platoon role at third and first base.

Outfielder Andrew McCutchen is scheduled to become a free agent after next season. He split last season at High- and Double-A and batted a combined.278 with an.819 OPS.

Trump's plaintiff cry to Bannon, Wolff - Shut up or I'll sue
Earlier on Saturday, Wolff said the revelations in his book were likely to bring an end to Trump's time in the White House . Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist.

In 79 games last season at Triple-A Fresno, Moran hit.308 with a.916 OPS. Moran hit 18 home runs and drove in 65 runs while sporting a.301 average. He was traded to Houston a year later.

Houston's rotation last season was shouldered by Dallas Keuchel, who posted a 3.9 WAR and was named an All-Star. There hadn't been a lot of movement this winter, but this deal could get things moving.

Needless to say, Cole's future teammates are ready to welcome him with open arms.

On Friday, Cole and the Pirates agreed to a one-year contract worth $6.75 million to avoid arbitration.

They accepted a package headlined by Musgrove, who is unproven as a starter in the major leagues.

Injuries checked Cole to 21 starts in 2016, but he rebounded past year and was one of just 15 pitchers in the majors to work 200-plus innings. He's 11-12 with a 4.77 ERA in that time, but finished out 2017 by posting a 1.44 ERA over 31 1/3 innings of relief.
