It was reported early Wednesday by Major League Baseball that a trade had been consummated between the two clubs, but Astros GM Jeff Luhnow denied the report, saying no trade was "imminent". Pittsburgh's return for the pitcher has yet to be revealed. It wasn't immediately clear what Pittsburgh will receive in return.

The New York Yankees also are in talks to acquire Cole, but a source with knowledge of the discussions told ESPN that a deal is not close right now. Passan did note that "generally, this sort of thing winds up with a deal being consummated".

Cole, 27, pitched to a 12-12 record with a 4.26 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 33 starts last season.

The Yankees were also considered to be interested in Cole's services but contract talks with the Pirates fell off and never resumed. He struck out 103 while allowing only two home runs in 90 innings against the Cubs. He didn't flinch under the pressure and posted a 2.45 ERA in those contests. Cole is coming off a rough season in which he surrendered a career-high 31 homers. However, the Pirates may not have been able to re-sign him when he eventually hit free agency, so they ensured they landed something in return for the ace.

The World Series Champion Houston Astros may have gotten even better today.
