Brewers close to Minor League deal with K-Rod
By Adam McCalvy / MLB.com
The Brewers are closing in on a Minor League deal with right-handed reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who was at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix on Wednesday morning for a physical.
The deal is not yet final, but Rodriguez would give the Brewers another late-inning option for a bullpen in a state of flux.
Rodriguez pitched to a 3.65 ERA for Milwaukee over the past season and a half, but the Brewers let him depart via free agency during the winter.
