Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported that the two teams have reached an agreement for Cole, so this deal is still likely to get done, and might even already be done, despite what Luhnow told the local beat reporter.

Shortly after, FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal, who previously said a deal was "close", appeared to walk back his claim.

McCullers is saying the deal "is over" and official and he's pumped to have Cole aboard. Cole is 59-42 overall with a career ERA of 3.50.

The Yankees were also considered to be interested in Cole's services but contract talks with the Pirates fell off and never resumed.

Yet Astros owner Jim Crane has been public in his desire to land another quality pitcher, telling MLB.com's Alyson Footer on Monday the team is "actively pursuing a high-end starter". He was 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 203.0 inning pitched in 2017. He is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2019 season.

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.
