  • Trade: Pirates acquire Wandy Rodriguez from Houston

    Not a bad deal for a team looking to make a run for the playoffs. Rodriguez is one of the most consistent pitchers in the game. ...

    he Pirates have acquired left-handed starter Wandy Rodriguez from the Astros in exchange for minor leaguers Rudy Owens, Robbie Grossman, and Colton Cain.

    The Astros will also pay some of the remaining salary owed to Rodriguez at least through 2013 and perhaps through 2014, as the club option for that year became a player option when Rodriguez was traded, per a stipulation in his contract. The Astros' yearly contributions to Rodriguez's salaries break down as such: $1.7MM in 2012, $8.5MM in 2013, and potentially $7.5MM in 2014.

    As an Astros fan I appreciate Wandy and wish him the best of luck. He is an undervalued pitcher and though his numbers slipped a little this year he is still pretty consistent and will pick up plenty of wins for the pirates with more run support. I think they should have traded him last year at a higher value potentially. I hope the prospects will be fruitful we sure are ammassing quite a few pitchers. some are bound to see their potential.
