Yankees talking about Wandy Rodriguez

The Yankees have discussed Houston Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, but still have to be convinced that he would represent a significant upgrade over the pitching they currently have in their rotation.

General manager Brian Cashman balked at the Rockies’ request for several high-level prospects in exchange for right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who instead went to the Indians on Saturday.

Left-hander Manny Banuelos is generally considered off-limits by the Yankees, but they seem willing to at least talk about players like right-hander Dellin Betances, catcher Jesus Montero and right-hander Ivan Nova.

Rodriguez represents the upper echelon of what’s left on the market leading into Sunday’s 4 p.m. ET Trade Deadline, but the Yankees will need to believe that he would make an impact over what Bartolo Colon or Freddy Garcia figure to provide in order to stomach the $38.3 million he’d be owed through 2014 if Rodriguez exercises his player option for that season.

Rodriguez is 7-7 with a 3.49 ERA in 19 starts this year for Houston. In 122 innings, he has permitted 49 runs (47 earned) and 120 hits, including 15 homers, while walking 38 and striking out 106.
