Astros won't offer contract to RHP Gervacio wire reports

HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros will offer 2011 contracts to every unsigned player on their 40-man roster except right-handed pitcher Sammy Gervacio.

Gervacio, who is recovering from arm injuries, will become a free agent at midnight Friday. Houston general manager Ed Wade says the Astros will try to re-sign Gervacio later.

The 25-year-old Gervacio limited to 13 appearances between Triple-A Round Rock and Houston last season.

Houston has six arbitration eligible players: outfielders Hunter Pence and Michael Bourn, infielders Clint Barmes and Jeff Keppinger, right-hander Matt Lindstrom and lefty Wandy Rodriguez.
