Francisco Rodriguez and the Brewers are getting back together, with Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reporting that the two sides have agreed to a one-year, $3.25 million deal.
Rodriguez spent part of 2011, all of 2012, and part of 2013 with the Brewers before being traded to the Orioles in July of last year. Overall for Milwaukee he threw 126 innings with a 3.15 ERA and 131/50 K/BB ratio, so it’s easy to see why the Brewers would want him back and the price is certainly reasonable.
He’ll begin the season in a setup role in front of closer Jim Henderson and Rodriguez, despite once being one of the most successful young closers in MLB history, has not topped 25 saves in a season since 2009.
