AstrosThe Houston Astros announced today that the club has signed right-handed pitcher Geoff Geary and left-handed pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to one-year contracts. Geary will earn $1.7 million plus incentives, while Rodriguez will make $2.6 million, plus incentives. The announcement was made by General Manager Ed Wade.

Geary, 32, went 2-3 with a career-best 2.53 ERA (18ER/64IP) in 55 appearances in his first season with the Astros in 2008. A veteran of six Major League seasons, Geary has gone 15-7 with a 3.67 ERA (135ER/331.1IP) in 271 games with Philadelphia (2003-07) and Houston (2008).

Rodriguez, 30, posted a 9-7 record and a 3.54 ERA (54ER/137.1IP) in 25 starts for Houston last season. Since his rookie season in 2005, Rodriguez has recorded at least nine wins in each of his four Major League seasons. He owns a career record of 37-40 with an ERA of 4.79 (311ER/584.1IP) in 111 career games (102 starts).

Geary had been requesting a salary figure of $2.1 million while the Astros were offering $1.425 million, or a difference of $675,000. Geary's $1.7 million is $62,500 above the mid-point. His 2009 salary will be 51 percent higher than his 2008 salary of $1.125 million.

Rodriguez had been requesting a salary figure of $3 million while the Astros were offering $2.25 million, or a difference of $750,000. Rodriguez' $2.6 million is $25,000 above the mid-point. His 2009 salary will be 476 percent higher than his 2008 salary of $451,000.

With the signings of Geary and Rodriguez, the Astros have now come to terms with all six of their arbitration-eligible players, a group that also included RHP Brandon Backe (1-year, $1.555 million), LHP Tim Byrdak (1-year, $1 million), C Humberto Quintero (1-year, $610,000) and RHP Jose Valverde (1-year, $8 million, reached before players filed for arbitration).

All told, the Astros will see a total of $15.46 million for all six salary arbitration eligible players that they came to agreement with this off-season.
