MLB Rumors: Astros To Land Gerrit Cole In Trade Despite Yankees' Interest

McCullers is saying the deal "is over" and official and he's pumped to have Cole aboard.

Cole's wife, Amy, summed up the day by posting video of a roller-coaster ride on Twitter. This is not a one-year rental, and Houston landed a proven arm who is just 27 years old. Tampa Bay's Alex Cobb could be a more realistic target.

Cole was drafted as the first overall selection by the Pirates in the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He then became the top-overall selection when the Pirates drafted him three years later.
