Astros avoid arbitration with Geary and Rodriguez

New, 3 comments

The Astros have reportedly reach agreements with relief pitcher Geoff Geary and starter Wandy Rodriguez for one year deals.

Geary is set to make $1.7 million, plus incentives.  His contract seems a little excessive given his injury risk coming off of an off season surgery.  Although this contract does represent a $100,000 savings over his predicted value via the community projection project.

Wandy will make $2.6 million, plus incentives.  This a sum well below his community projection project's predicted value of $10 million+.

This means the Astros will have no arbitration cases for the 2009 season.
