The Yankees miss out on righthander Gerrit Cole.

The Houston Astros' have reached an agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates on a trade for right-hander Gerrit Cole, MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Wednesday, citing sources.

The teams have not announced the deal, and Cole has reportedly yet to be informed of the trade, so there is still a lot to get done. He finished with a 2.60 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 32 starts and 208 innings, all of which were career bests. It wasn't immediately clear what Pittsburgh will receive in return.

Arctic Air, Bringing Dangerous Wind Chills, Settles in Following Snowstorm
Very cold air and gusty winds will create unsafe wind-chill temperatures into the night and through Friday. The warmer air mass will still have to fight bitter cold air at the surface as moisture arrives.

Though Cole is coming off his worst season - 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA in 33 starts - he is capable of being an elite starter.

Cole turned heads in 2015 when he made the All-Star Game and posted sparkling numbers. Darvish is the free agent starter Houston has been mentioned alongside the most, and there are only so many "high-end" pitchers on the free agent market.

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