  • Astros get Cole in 5-player deal

Cole finished fourth in the National League Cy Young voting in 2015 and made the All-Star team, but has been much less effective in his other four seasons. The report was later refuted and days went by before anything else was heard.

OFFICIAL: The #Astros have acquired Gerrit Cole from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In exchange, the Pirates receive right-handed pitcher Joe Musgrove, third baseman Colin Moran, right-handed reliever Michael Feliz and outfielder Jason Martin.

On Friday, Cole and the Pirates reached agreement on a one-year contract worth $6.75 million.

Outfielder Andrew McCutchen is scheduled to become a free agent after next season.

Cole probably is only the first domino to fall for the Pirates, who have triggered another roster retooling phase.

Feliz, 24, has a 5.13 ERA for his career working out of the bullpen while Musgrove, 25, was nothing more than a swingman in the Astros system. He's had a brief cup of coffee with the Astros in each of the last two seasons. Martin isn't well-known, but he hit.278/.332/.487 with 18 homers and 16 steals between High-A and Double-A last season.

Last season Cole was 12-12 with a 4.06 ERA while leading the league in starts with 33. The reigning World Series champions have pitching depth that includes Verlander, Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers, Charlie Morton, Brad Peacock, Collin McHugh and a slew of prospects. The 22-year-old was an eighth-round pick of the Astros in 2013. Most troublesome are the 31 home runs given up, which is more than the previous three years combined when he allowed a total of 29.

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