Astros land Gerrit Cole in trade with Pirates

Is it true this time?

Gerrit Cole may be finally on the move. After weeks of trade speculation, the Astros have acquired the hard-throwing right-hander from the Pirates in a deal centered around righty Joe Musgrove and third-base prospect Colin Moran, a source told’s Adam Berry on Saturday.

The clubs have not confirmed the trade, which will send four players to Pittsburgh, a source told’s Mark Feinsand.

MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal reported the Pirates will also get right-handed reliever Michael Feliz and Minor League outfielder Jason Martin, the Astros’ No. 15-ranked prospect, as part of the deal.
