2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: GERRIT COLE KEEPS GRAVY TRAIN GOING IN HOUSTON

The rich get richer.  The World Series champion Houston Astros picked up an ace pitcher Saturday when they finally completed a deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates that included them surrendering reliever Joe Musgrove and top third base prospect Colin Moran.  As far as Cole is concerned, he faces a tough move to from the AL to the NL which will hurt his ERA/WHIP outlook a bit and his K rate will also dip in moving to the DH league.  Cole can no longer be graded as a fantasy baseball ace and now is more of a low-end SP 2.  Meanwhile Moran is the jewel get for the Pirates and the former sixth overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft has the bat/skill to carry value this season.  The Pirates will give Moran every chance to break camp with the team and he comes off a 2017 where he batted .308 with 18 home runs in just 338 at-bats last season at Triple-A.  Add Moran to your prospect lists and bump down Cole some in your pitching rankings.
