Astros Land Gerrit Cole, What It Means For Yankees

Published

on

The Houston Astros have won the battle for Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole as the two teams have agreed to a trade, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

The move improves a Houston rotation that is already featuring Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander.

Over the past several weeks Pittsburgh had been discussing a trade with the New York Yankees that would have sent Cole to the Bronx in return for one, or more, of the Yankees’ big name prospects such as Gleyber Torres, Clint Frazier and Miguel Adujar.

While the Yankees may view this as a potential “loss”, Yankee fans, who have been critical of the high price for Cole, may see this as a big win.

With the Astros improving their rotation, the Yankees will likely turn their attention to Yu Darvish.
