Wandy Rodriguez picks up '14 option
PITTSBURGH -- Pirates left-hander Wandy Rodriguez has exercised his $13 million player option for 2014.
The 34-year-old went 6-4 with a 3.59 ERA for Pittsburgh, missing the final four months of the season with discomfort in his left forearm. Rodriguez attempted to come back from the discomfort twice only to have it return.
His deal originally included a team option, but it became his when the Astros traded him in July 2012. Houston will pay $5.5 million of next year's salary.
