Brewers: Henderson coming off DL, Rodriguez to get crack at 300 saves


Francisco Rodriguez sits at 298 saves after notching his fourth save of the season on Saturday. With the Brewers are marred in last in the NL Central, Rodriguez has been one of the bright spots for the team this season.

Filling in for an injured Jim Henderson the 31-year-old Rodriguez has appeared in 11 games and posted a 0.87 ERA and a 0.68 WHIP.

With Henderson coming off the disabled list on Sunday the Brewers will move Rodriguez to a setup role but manager Ron Roenicke says he will give Rodriguez a shot at his 300th career save.

Henderson appeared in 20 games with a 0.92 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP before going on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. While Henderson is currently the teams closer the Brewers have good fall back options should he falter in his return to the role.
