HOUSTON -- The 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 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 in 271 games with Philadelphia (2003-07) and Houston (2008).

Rodriguez, 30, posted a 9-7 record and a 3.54 ERA 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 in 111 career games (102 starts).

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, LHP Tim Byrdak, C Humberto Quintero and RHP Jose Valverde.
