Well, this is certainly a shock: Jeff Passan hears from a source that there is no deal in place for Gerrit Cole and that all of this was a "false rumor".

The Houston Astros reportedly made a major addition to their pitching staff Wednesday, trading for Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole.

This trade is the latest in a series of aggressive, focused moves by the Astros.

The Yankees had been in trade talks with the Pirates about Cole for several weeks.

Fellow Houston hurler Lance McCullers Jr. seemed excited by the reports that Cole might join an already solid rotation that also boasts Justin Verlander and Dallas Keuchel.

Google Has Sold A Home Speaker Every Second After Its Release
Home Max was launched in mid-December at $399 -- so it's clear that it makes up a small portion f those million of sales. When the Amazon Echo entered the market in 2015, it kicked off a new wave of demand for voice-activated smart speakers.

In five years with the Pirates, Cole has a 59-42 record with a 3.50 ERA, averaging 156 innings a season in 127 starts.

Cole was the Yankees' first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2008 draft, but opted to play at UCLA. His best season came in 2015, when he posted a career-high 19 wins and career-low 2.60 ERA en route to his only all-star appearance.

Right now the Yankees have Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray, CC Sabathia and Jordan Montgomery in their rotation.

He was limited to 21 starts and 116 innings due to elbow inflammation with Pittsburgh in 2016 then surrendered more homers in the National League than anyone other than the Cubs' John Lackey last season.
