Cole was drafted as the first overall selection by the Pirates in the 2011 Major League Baseball draft.

In 5 years with the Pirates, Cole has gone 59-42 with a 3.50 ERA and 3.27 FIP in 127 career starts.
Although Cole is coming off a mediocre season, the Yankees likely believed they could transform him into a strong starter by having the 27-year-old rely less on his fastball and more on his off-speed pitches. His best season came in 2015 when he went 19-8 with a 2.60 ERA, 1.091 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 32 starts.
The New York Yankees also are in talks to acquire Cole, but a source with knowledge of the discussions told ESPN that a deal is not close right now.
