Contrary to a prior report, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Wednesday that a trade to acquire Cole from the Pirates is not done and not imminent, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported the deal shortly after first noting a trade was a "imminent". The Astros would appear set to open the season with a rotation of Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, Cole, Lance McCullers and Charlie Morton if the trade is completed. Passan did note that "generally, this sort of thing winds up with a deal being consummated". For his career, he is 59-42 with a 3.50 ERA. He was 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 203.0 inning pitched in 2017.

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. He didn't flinch under the pressure and posted a 2.45 ERA in those contests.

The defending World Series champion Houston Astros have clearly stated this winter that they're looking for a front-line starting pitcher.
