Wandy Rodriguez could go on waivers this week

There's a growing belief in baseball that the Astros will put Wandy Rodriguez on trade waivers this week, and also that at least one team will put in a claim.

The Astros discussed Rodriguez with several teams in the days before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, but couldn't complete a deal. Many people thought then that Rodriguez would make it through waivers unclaimed because of a contract that pays him $10 million next year, $13 million in 2013, and includes a $13 million player option for 2014 if Rodriguez is traded.

But with a large crowd of scouts watching Monday night in Arizona, Rodriguez shut out the Diamondbacks on two hits over six innings. It's believed that at least one National League team, and maybe others, were interested enough to risk a claim.

The Astros traded both Hunter Pence and Michael Bourn before the deadline, and incoming owner Jim Crane wants the payroll cut to about $60 million next year, according to sources. But the Astros insist that they won't give Rodriguez away for nothing.

If one or more teams claim Rodriguez, the Astros would have three options. They could simply allow the claim to go through (which they're saying they won't do), or work out a trade with the team that is awarded the claim (the claiming team that is lowest in the standings), or pull him back off waivers (which would basically make him untradeable for the rest of the season).

If Rodriguez went through waivers unclaimed, the Astros would be free to trade him to any team.

The Astros discussed Rodriguez with the Yankees before the deadline, but it's believed now that the Yankees' interest in him has cooled, and that they likely would not claim him.
