Fantasy reaction to Cole's trade to Houston

The Houston Astros boosted their rotation when they acquired Gerrit Cole in a five-player trade this week. Eric Karabell reviews the fantasy spin.

Christina Kahrl MLB Staff Writer 

Getting Gerrit Cole from the Pirates is great news for the Astros at almost any price (with Joe Musgrove and Colin Moran the named pieces so far). If they can work with him to get similar results as they did with Justin Verlander, weep for the rest of the AL West for the next two years. Scratch one landing spot for Yu Darvish, and watch to see how soon Andrew McCutchen gets dealt from Pittsburgh as well.
