Colorado Rockies Will Look To Trade For Astros' Wandy Rodriguez, According To Report

Back in August, the Colorado Rockies attempted to trade for Houston Astros pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to help stabilize a rotation that had been depleted due to injuries and trades. It didn't happen, but Troy Renck of the Denver Post believes that the Rockies will revisit trade talks with Houston during the offseason.

The deal never worked out because the Astros wanted two of the Rockies' top prospects: catcher Wilin Rosario and pitcher Drew Pomeranz. The latter arrived in Colorado in mid-August to complete the trade for Ubaldo Jimenez. Giving up Pomeranz and the catcher of the future while also needing to take on all $36 million remaining on his contract was too much for the Rockies to bite on.

It's a small sample size, but the Rodriguez is 3-2 with a 3.99 ERA in seven career starts at Coors Field. He has struck out 29 in 38-plus innings.
