If the Yankees really want Gerrit Cole, it may not be too late: The Astros GM said that a deal for the Pirates righthander isn't "imminent", despite previous reports saying one was almost done.

Despite Morosi's report, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported that "multiple sources are cautioning" that a deal wasn't done yet.

Cole has a 59-42 record and career 3.50 ERA with the Pirates, and has recorded 734 strikeouts.

The Yankees were also rumored to be in on Cole, but ultimately came second in the sweepstakes for the 27-year-old.

The Pirates aren't realistic World Series contenders this year, so any return pieces will help restock the organization as it builds toward the future.
