The Yankees were also considered to be interested in Cole's services but contract talks with the Pirates fell off and never resumed.

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported on Tuesday that the Pittsburgh Pirates agreed to trade the 27-year-old pitcher to the 2017 World Series champion.

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.

Cole, who is under team control for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, is in his second year of arbitration eligibility.

The Pirates drafted Cole in 2011, using their first overall selection to do so.

The Astros would hope that Cole bounces back to his form from 2013-2016 when he had a 3.23 ERA over 579 1/3 innings of work. His best season came in 2015 when he went 19-8 with a 2.60 ERA and 202 strikeouts in 32 starts. It was by far the worst performance of his career.

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