McCullers is saying the deal "is over" and official and he's pumped to have Cole aboard.

Now, according to multiple reports, the Astros are on the verge of landing Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole.

"We have talked to several teams about possible trades", Luhnow told the Houston Chronicle. Keuchel, of course, becomes a free agent after the 2018 season, so Cole's presence will help cushion the blow of him leaving after the season, assuming he leaves.

Gerrit Cole won't be a Yankee after all.

Cole made his debut in the major leagues with the Pirates in 2013.

United Nations emergency session humiliating defeat for US
The Trump administration has denied having any hand in the demonstrations, saying they arose completely spontaneously. China also described the meeting as meddling in Iran's affairs.

However, the 2011 No. 1 overall pick still has top-of-the-rotation stuff with a fastball in the upper-90s and a plus curveball and changeup.

Cole is coming off a season where he posted a 12-12 record with a 4.26 ERA. His best season came in 2015, when he posted a career-high 19 wins and career-low 2.60 ERA en route to his only all-star appearance.

Shortly after, FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal, who previously said a deal was "close", appeared to walk back his claim.

The Yankees' rotation now includes Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray and CC Sabathia.
