The Houston Astros have discussed a potential trade for starting pitcher Gerrit Cole with the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan.

According to the report, Astros outfielder Derek Fisher has been included in the talks but mentioned that the Pirates “almost certainly would need Kyle Tucker or Forrest Whitley as a centerpiece.”

The New York Yankees have been reportedly in on-and-off talks with the Pirates for Cole as well.

Cole, 27, had a down year in 2017, posting a 3.88 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 2016 and a 4.26 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.

2015 was a different story as Cole finished with a 2.60 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 208 innings.
