Gerrit Cole Traded to Astros for Colin Moran, Joe Musgrove, More

"Trading Gerrit Cole was not an easy decision", general manager Neal Huntington said in a prepared statement. For several hours Wednesday, Twitter crackled with reports that a deal to send Cole to Houston was imminent. Cole will now enter the Astros' rotation as a top-4 starter. But he's about to get pricy (at least, for the thrifty Pirates): He'll make $6.75 million in 2018 after avoiding arbitration, and that figure will spike again in '19.
He played in nine games for the Astros in 2016-and seven more last season-before suffering a freak injury when he fouled a ball off of his own face. Feliz has pitched in 98 games over the course of the past three seasons for the Astros and has accumulated a 5.13 ERA. The Astros are already led by Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander.
The World Series champion Astros add Cole, the former 19-game victor, to a rotation already armed with Justin Verlander, Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers Jr. and Charlie Morton.

The players the Pirates got in return for Cole is a bit underwhelming.
Cole, 27, has two years remaining before becoming a free agent. Houston acquired the third baseman in a deal for pitcher Jarred Cosart and infielder Enrique Hernandez in 2014, and Moran took a step forward last season by hitting 18 home runs for Triple-A Fresno. He was blocked at the hot corner in Houston by young slugger Alex Bregman but could pilfer at-bats from David Freese in Pittsburgh. There's some upside here as he's fanned 165 in 113 innings in two seasons of relief.
Martin has been one of the youngest players at his level in the minors the past two seasons, an outfielder hit.278/.332/.487 with 18 home runs and 16 steals between High-A and Double-A, not turning 22 until September.
Martin, 21, was an eighth-round draft pick by the Astros in 2013.
