Houston lefty Wandy Rodriguez was put on waivers Friday, and if not claimed he will clear today. While the Yankees backed off Rodriguez as the Aug. 1 trade deadline approached, they have been following the cash-dumping Astros, who are looking to move him.

The Blue Jays have an interest, too.

At the trade deadline, Freddy Garcia hadn't cut his index finger, Bartolo Colon had won two straight and A.J. Burnett hadn't fallen deeper into the abyss.

Rodriguez has $23 million coming across the next two years and some clubs are wary how his stuff would do in the American League.

Rodriguez, 32, is 9-9 with a 3.31 ERA for the worst team in baseball.
