Felix Pie becomes free agent, Wandy Rodriguez picks up option

Kevin C. Cox

A couple of Friday roster notes:

-P- The Pirates outrighted Felix Pie, and he opted for free agency. It would have been very surprising if Pie had made it through the offseason on the Pirates' 40-man roster, so this was coming sooner or later. He collected 31 plate appearances for the Pirates.

-P- Wandy Rodriguez exercised his $13 million option, which must have been a very easy decision for him. Luckily, the Astros are on the hook for $5.5 million of that, so the Pirates will only have to pay $7.5 million. It remains to be seen how much Rodriguez will be able to contribute next year.
