The Brewers signed veteran reliever Francisco Rodriguez as a free agent on April 17. In the time since, “K-Rod” has been working his way back with Single-A Brevard County, with whom he made two appearances, striking out four and walking one in two innings. The right-hander was just promoted to Triple-A Nashville, per Adam McCalvy.

McCalvy also notes the Brewers have to decide on K-Rod’s fate by Thursday, so GM Doug Melvin will watch him pitch in Nashville on Monday and Tuesday.

Last year with the Brewers, Rodriguez posted a 4.38 in 72 innings.

    The way their starters are pitching, they need all the relievers they can get.

    Welp. Looks like “20 minutes of terror” will be making a return to Miller Park.
