Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez was claimed off waivers Tuesday, a person familiar with the situation confirmed to MLB.com.

The Astros and the claiming team -- the Colorado Rockies, according to FOXsports.com's Ken Rosenthal -- have 48 hours to work out a deal, or they could let him go to Colorado in exchange for a $20,000 waiver claim. Houston could also pull him back from waivers. If the Astros pull Rodriguez back, he'll remain on the roster for the rest of the season.

Rodriguez is scheduled to pitch against the Rockies in Wednesday's series finale at Coors Field.
