MLB News: The Milwaukee Brewers re-signed reliever Francisco Rodriguez on Wednesday to a minor league deal and has thirty days to assign him to a specific club in the organization. In 78 appearances last season he posted a 4.38 earned run average.
Fantasy Ramifications: While Rodriguez will work himself into major league shape down in the minors, it is very possible that you can see him vying for a spot at the back end of the bullpen before the season gets too old. While there are no guarantees, anyone needing a closer at this time while having the roster space to do so, may want to try and stash him away. It could be worth the risk.
