Cole fire: Astros heat up hot stove by acquiring Pirates ace

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Astros already had two Cy Young winners on their staff. They're hoping Gerrit Cole can make it three.

The World Series champions boosted their rotation with another big arm, acquiring Cole from the Pittsburgh Pirates in a five-player trade Saturday.

The Pirates got right-handers Joe Musgrove and Michael Feliz, third baseman Colin Moran and outfielder Jason Martin for their 27-year-old ace.
