Francisco Rodriguez: Minor League Deal With Brewers

Rotowire.com
Update: Rodriguez signed a minor league contract with the Brewers on Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: The Brewers have 30 days to decide whether to add Rodriguez to the big-league bullpen before the right-hander can opt for free agency. Rodriguez, or "K-Rod" as he's known, went from closing with the Mets to setting up John Axford upon his joining Milwaukee in July of 2011, but with Axford out as closer, there's room for Rodriguez to potentially work his way into the ninth-inning role. His chances of taking over, of course, depend on how Jim Henderson performs in that spot in the coming weeks.
