Astros Win Arbitration Hearing With Wandy

The Astros won their arbitration hearing with Wandy Rodriguez, according to MLB.com's Alyson Footer (via Twitter). Rodriguez will earn $5MM in 2010, instead of the $7MM he was asking for.

Rodriguez, 31, pitched to a 3.02 ERA in 205.2 innings for the Astros last year, with 8.4 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9. The lefty won't become a free agent until after the 2011 season.

I agree. I still couldn’t see Wandy winning though. Last year was a career year and I think this is a major win for the Astros as well. Not only did this save them money, but Wandy could have a huge 2010 season.

I thought Wandy had a decent case. Huge win for the ‘stros.

Surprised the Stros won. Seemed like $7m was pretty fair for a 2nd year arb.
