Brewers Re-Sign Francisco Rodriguez
Deal Is For Two Years $9 Million
The Milwaukee Brewers and free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez, have a agreed on a two-year deal worth $9 million according to Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal reporter Tom Haudricourt. K-Rod was one of the last remaining relief pitchers left on the market. Now all eyes will turn on Rafael Soriano who is the biggest name yet to sign.
It is my understanding K-Rod will get $3 million guaranteed in first year and $6 million in second year from #Brewers.

K-Rod, 33, will be entering his 14th season in the major leagues. He holds a career record of 46-41 with 348 saves which includes the remarkable 2008 season with the Anaheim Angels. Rodriguez has spent the last three and a half seasons with the Brewers, and with his addition the question of the closer role has been answered. Prior to him signing, Milwaukee had Jonathan Broxton slated to take on that role.
Rodriguez is 12-13 with an ERA of 3.11 during his time with the brew crew. He has recorded 193.2 innings of work with 204 strikeouts (9.5 K/9) and 57 saves.
