The Pirates have traded Gerrit Cole to the Astros in exchange for RHP Joe Musgrove, 3B Colin Moran, OF Jason Martin, and RHP Michael Feliz, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
The Pirates and Astros were rumored to have been in discussions regarding a trade involving Cole.
The Yankees reportedly shut down talks with the Pirates earlier in the week, according to George A. King III of the NY Post.
Cole started a career-high 33 games for the Pirates last season and went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA.
Musgrove, who pitched in 38 games last season, posted a 4.77 ERA, while 22-year-old prospect Jason Martin has yet to make his big-league debut and 25-year-old Colin Moran has played just 16 big-league games between two short stints in 2016 and 2017. RHP Michael Feliz went 4-2 with a 5.62 ERA in 46 games for Houston last season.
