The Houston Astros and the Pittsburgh Pirates reached an agreement Wednesday over a trade involving Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole, according to a report.

Shortly after, FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal, who previously said a deal was "close", appeared to walk back his claim. The Astros would appear set to open the season with a rotation of Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, Cole, Lance McCullers and Charlie Morton if the trade is completed.

He told the hosts that instead of condemning the decision, they should persuade their viewers to accept it. But he added that eventually "this thing will become a reality.... and we don't want to go to war.


Cole went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA for the Pirates last season. 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. He helped lead the Pirates to the postseason, but he coughed up four earned runs in five innings during a loss against the Chicago Cubs in the National League Wild Card Game. But this is a clear suggestion that the Pirates are in rebuild mode.

When the Houston Astros won the World Series, people weren't just celebrating in Houston.
