Francis Martes (17) and David Paulino (47) are two flamethrowers Pittsburgh would likely require in any trade involving Cole. While the addition of Watson could force outfielder Kyle Tucker (30) to become part of the deal as well.

That would be a huge asking price for the Astros, but they are young enough to afford the loss. It is also worth mentioning Cole is only 26. Though he is an established top-of-the-rotation starter, he should still have plenty left in the tank.

The Astros would fill an instant need, and the Pirates would be able to rebuild for the future.

Jameson Taillon is on the mend but ready to get back to his routine.

The Pirates starting pitcher rejoined his teammates at PNC Park on Tuesday after undergoing surgery for suspected testicular cancer on May 8, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

According to the report, Taillon is expected be cleared to continue his rehab and travel with the team after being further examined next week. Pirates head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk disclosed Taillon’s procedure came back positive for testicular cancer but believes the right-hander will feel better if he’s surrounded by his team.

What’s most important for me, in regards to Jameson, is he’s back with the team, back in the clubhouse, Tomczyk said. He got to see his teammates the past two days. You could just see the joy on these guys’ eyes. It energizes everybody.

The team also invited fans to sign a get-well card for Taillon during Tuesday’s game against the Nationals.
