Jon Heyman announces Wandy as the "best lefty who could go"

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.
