Everyone's favorite Borasite, Jon Heyman, ranks the potential market for teams looking to add pieces at the deadline. What does that mean for Astros fans?
Wandy is #4, behind three NL Central pitchers:
The $33 million owed through 2014 if he's traded (the '14 option becomes a player option if dealt) doesn't look too terrible now for this very solid lefthander (4-4, 2.49 ERA) who could help a lot of teams. Rodriguez is the best lefty who could go.
Brett Myers is #14:
He's a rare closer having an excellent season (12 of 13 saves, 0.92 WHIP), but his contract is still silly: $11 million this year, a $10 million option for next year with a $3 million buyout. Good move by Houston to convert him, though.
We also have Brandon Lyon (#19) and Carlos Lee (#26) on the list. Read at your own peril.
