#pirates get wandy rodriguez, source says. @Tom_Singer reported it was getting close.

The 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 have done a real nice job.

Adding 3B Matt Dominguez, LHP Rob Rasmussen, RHP Asher Wojciechowski, LHP Joe Musgrove, C Carlos Perez, OF Robbie Grossman, LHP Rudy Owens and LHP Colton Cain through trades...

Then having a draft class of SS Carlos Correa, RHP Lance McCullers Jr., SS Nolan Fontana, 3B Rio Ruiz, OF Brett Phillips and RHP Brady Rodgers...

Wow... Adding those 14 guys to a system that already includes 1B/OF John Singleton, OF George Springer, RHP Jarred Cosart, OF Domingo Santana, OF Ariel Ovando, 2B Delino DeShields Jr., SS Jonathan Villar, and RHP Mike Foltynewicz gives the Astros a nice little system. Add in the fact that they are more than likely going to get the #1 pick again next year, and I can't help but like what the Astros are doing.

Not to mention the Astros have a grand total of $5.5M TOTAL on the books for next year in the $5M they are giving the Pirates in the Wandy trade and catcher Chris Snyder's $500K buyout... This is how a rebuild is supposed to look.
