The Houston Astros and the Pittsburgh Pirates reached an agreement Wednesday over a trade involving Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole, according to a report.

This trade is the latest in a series of aggressive, focused moves by the Astros. He finished with a 2.60 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 32 starts and 208 innings, all of which were career bests.

Cole also contributed to Pittsburgh's 2013 postseason run, making two October starts as a rookie. Looking ahead to 2018, Cole will likely slide in as Houston's third starter, but he's a fine addition as an SP2 in 15-team leagues.

Is Kylie Jenner FINALLY revealing her pregnancy over FaceTime?!
Ever since then, Kylie has not yet been seen publicly, having just popped up in family events on societal networking. While the Kardashians have been asked to cover the stories of Kylie's pregnancy, they have all dodged the queries.

The Astros won the 2017 World Series in seven games over the Los Angeles Dodgers and boasted one of the best rotations in baseball.

If the trade does goes through, the trade would bolster an already-stacked rotation in Houston that includes two-time Cy Young award-winner Justin Verlander and 2015 victor Dallas Keuchel. It's less clear how badly the Pirates need outfield prospects given the presence of Austin Meadows, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco.
