Pirates-Astros Trade, 1st Ld-Writethru,775

Pirates-Astros Trade, 1st Ld-Writethru,775

Then suddenly on Saturday it was announced that Cole was in fact being traded to the Astros in a five player deal.

Sources confirmed the deal to KPRC 2 Sports Director Randy McIlvoy the deal for Cole, which will have the Astros sending pitchers Joe Musgrove and Michael Feliz, along with third baseman Colin Moran and outfielder Jason Martin to the Pirates. He holds a career ERA of 3.50 through 5 Major League Baseball seasons.

Musgrove, Moran and Feliz likely will open the season with the Pirates.

"We expect him to bounce back and be a Cy Young contender", Luhnow said.

Moran, 25, had strong numbers at Triple-A last season but that came in the hitter friendly Pacific Coast League.How his 18 homers in 338 at-bats will translate to the major leagues remains to be seen. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft was an All-Star in 2015 but hasn't replicated those results the past two seasons. The Pirates' haul is not the best on first glance, but if they are able to get the most out of the players they acquired, they could easily be the winners of this deal.

The move places Cole in the middle of an already strong pitching staff in Houston, which features future Hall of Famer Justin Verlander, 2015 Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel, World Series Game 7 hero Charlie Morton, Lance McCullers Jr., Brad Peacock and Collin McHugh.

BOZICH | Brian Bowen leaves Louisville and enrolls at SC
SC has struggled a bit in its follow-up to a Final Four appearance last season, as Martin's squad is 10-5 and 1-2 in SEC play. Ten people, including four assistant coaches and Adidas executive James Gatto, were initially charged in the investigation.

Over 127 starts for the Pirates, including three in the postseason, Cole went 59-42 with a 3.50 ERA.

Musgrove could take over Cole's spot in the rotation.

In 26 games, Cole went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 2017. "We just happen to have someone in front of him".

Martin is a left-handed hitting outfielder selected in the eighth round of the 2013 draft.

The youngest player is Martin who at age 22 split time between High-A and Double-A.
