Yankees, Pirates Discussing Gerrit Cole Trade

Dec 15, 2017 7:53 AM

The New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates are discussing a trade that would send Gerrit Cole to the American League for a package centered around Clint Frazier, according to a report.

Pittsburgh would also like a young starting pitcher on the verge of the Major Leagues. New York's Chance Adams may best fit that description.

Cole, 27, won't be a free agent until 2020.
