Report: Pirates acquire Astros LHP Wandy Rodriguez

Tom Singer of MLB.com reports that the Pittsburgh Pirates are "close enough to an agreement" to acquire Houston Astros lefthander Wandy Rodriguez that the Bucs have stopped discussions involving other lefthanders.

Singer writes: "Rodriguez may already have begun the process of undergoing the pre-requisite physical before the deal becomes official, although no announcement is expected Tuesday night."

Rodriguez, 33, is 7-9 with a 3.79 ERA this season. He has one year remaining on his contract beyond this season, at $13 million, with a player option for $13 million for 2014.

UPDATE: Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that it is a done deal.

Heyman also reports that the player option for 2013 will be triggered by the trade, so Rodriguez is officially due $26 million after this season.

Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com has the full details of the trade:
