It was not immediately clear who the Astros will trade for Cole.

If the Yankees really want Gerrit Cole, it may not be too late: The Astros GM said that a deal for the Pirates righthander isn't "imminent", despite previous reports saying one was almost done.

"We have talked to several teams about possible trades", Luhnow told the Houston Chronicle.

Panthers fire O-coordinator Mike Shula, QBs coach Ken Dorsey
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will have a new offensive coordinator and position coach in 2018. The news comes one day after coach Ron Rivera had seemed to give his entire coaching staff an endorsement.

Cole, though, would give the Yankees a more proven arm, though one that doesn't come without some concern. The addition of Cole only makes it better as he would join a pitching staff that includes Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, Lance McCullers and Charlie Morton.

Cole was the Yankees' first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2008 draft, but opted to play at UCLA.

Cole went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 196/55 in 203 innings across 33 starts for the Pirates in 2017. 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. He was an all-star in 2015.

The teams have not announced the deal, and Cole has reportedly yet to be informed of the trade, so there is still a lot to get done.

They already have five capable starters in Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray, CC Sabathia and Jordan Montgomery.
