Gerrit Cole to Houston Astros from Pittsburgh Pirates

Pirates deal Gerrit Cole to Astros for four players, including pitcher Joe Musgrove

Moran has been traded to the Pirates along with Joe Musgrove and two undisclosed prospects in exchange for Gerrit Cole, Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports.

Cole is not coming off his best season. In 2017, meanwhile, he stayed healthy but was a mess on the mound, lit up to the tune of a 4.26 ERA and a full-season worst 101 ERA+.

2015 was Cole's best year to date, with sterling marks in almost every metric one chooses to judge pitching.

Forecast: Cold today, snow possible Sunday
Friday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 7 p.m., then a slight chance of rain between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. There's a 20 percent chance of snow after midnight on Saturday along with increasing clouds and a low around 11 degrees.

Feliz, 24, went 4-2 with a 5.63 ERA in 46 relief appearances with the Astros last season, drawing his career numbers to 12-3 with a 5.13 ERA in parts of three seasons in Houston.

The 27-year-old pitcher has been the subject of rampant trade rumors and speculation throughout the offseason.

The New York Yankees had been among the teams mentioned in trade talks involving Cole.

Wal-Mart to Close 10% of Its 660 Sam's Club Stores
Walmart's new pay hike, purportedly inspired by the recent cut in the US corporate tax rate, is a little less than real largesse. It is one of at least 63 reported closures across the USA and is expected to impact thousands of workers.

Musgrove could take over Cole's spot in the rotation. Cole will slide into a rotation that features Justin Verlander, Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers and Charlie Morton. That group of pitchers is arguably the deepest and most talented rotation in baseball.

The Pirates confirmed in a release that Gerrit Cole was traded Saturday night. Young, cheap, and productive, Cole is the kind of player that contenders lust for.

In 26 games, Cole went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 2017. Moving him now was the only option if the team decided that previous year was the end of the line. Moran hit 18 home runs and drove in 65 runs while sporting a.301 average. However, his power is diminishing and Moran could end up being a long-term solution for the Pirates at the hot corner.

Celebrity Big Brother's India Willoughby has FINALLY admitted her "embarrassing" behaviour in the house hasn't exactly been ideal. I love the experience ... but did I give my best show? "It has always been my dream to be on the show", she said.

Outfielder Jason Martin is also a part of the package. Through his work in 2016 and 2017, Schugel has solidified himself as a core member of the Pirate bullpen heading into the 2018 season. Number 31 for the Pirates is one of their most underappreciated players - reliever A.J.
