NL Central Notes: Wandy, Molina, Greinke, Oswalt

Wandy Rodriguez is unlikely to be traded, again, says Stephen Goff. The Houston Astros have never been able to get over that contract hump, which makes him hard to move.

In other NL Central notes, Buster Olney suggests a look at Cardinals' Tyler Greene and Viva El Birdos takes a look at Yadier Molina's impending free agency:

  • LHP Wandy Rodriguez likely to stay put with Astros over course of 2012 season - Stephen Goff |
    "The 32-year-old Rodriguez posted an 11-11 record with a 3.49 ERA over 191 innings in 30 starts for the Astros last season. He's been the subject of trade rumors this offseason. However, the Astros have never gotten close to working out a deal with other clubs, especially since the organization never demonstrated a willingness to absorb any of the $25.5 million left on his contract."
  • Cardinals' Greene an Intriguing Player - Buster Olney | ESPN (Insider)
    One of the more intriguing players in spring training will be the Cardinals' Tyler Greene, who is getting a strong opportunity from St. Louis to be the team's every-day second baseman. "He's a five-tool player," Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said on the phone the other day. "It's a matter of having success at the big league level. He has everything -- speed, power, range."
