Gammons has some rumors

Peter Gammons has some Astros rumors for you.

Wandy is "definitely on the market."

What could the Astros want for Wandy? A comparable trade might be the Rockies floating Ubaldo Jimenez, and Gammons apparently knows what Colorado wants for him:

What would it take, with a club-friendly contract? One or two Major League level players, one of who would move into the Colorado rotation, and at least two prime prospects. In other words, if the Yankees want Jimenez, the Rockies would need a Major League starter, Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances and a bat.

If the Astros are willing take one ML-ready player and one prime prospect, they could move to the top of the list.

Washington is apparently interested in Michael Bourn:
Washington isn't selling, except for Tyler Clippard; instead, they keep asking for Michael Bourn -- thus far without success -- and had been one of several teams interested in Julio Borbon until his recent injury.
