ESPN Jerry Crasnick is saying that no deal is done for Cole and that a deal is "not imminent".

Monday, Astros owner Jim Crane acknowledged the team was "actively pursuing a high-end starter" and Cole is certainly available, with the rebuilding Pirates looking to move Cole, along with Andrew McCutchen and perhaps Josh Harrison. Cole is coming off a rough season in which he surrendered a career-high 31 homers.

The Yankees had been in trade talks with the Pirates about Cole for several weeks.

Cole was drafted as the first overall selection by the Pirates in the 2011 Major League Baseball draft.

Gerrit Cole won't be a Yankee after all.

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.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft, Cole made his big-league debut in 2013.

NY also has been linked in media reports to free agents Yu Darvish and Alex Cobb.

Right now the Yankees have Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray, CC Sabathia and Jordan Montgomery in their rotation. He struck out 103 while allowing only two home runs in 90 innings against the Cubs.
